My RB: Blitz Setlist

GLaDOSGLaDOS Opening Act
edited April 2012 in Your Ultimate Setlist
Just decided to, I really think Blitz is a good opportunity to get some songs from highly requested bands as well as some modern songs on heavy rotation on the radio.

Always by Blink-182 (2004) Pop Punk
Calling You by Blue October (2003) Alternative Rock
Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll by Blue Oyster Cult (1972) Blues-Rock

Sultans Of Swing- Dire Straits (1978) Pub Rock
My Name Is by Eminem (1999) Hip Hop

(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones (1965) Rock and Roll
Great DJ- The Ting Tings (2008) Alternative Dance

Italics = Already Confirmed

The majority being modern music is a side effect Edgefest last Sunday, so I apologize for the imbalance.

EDIT: Edited the list so it's in alphabetical order by Band name, and added the genre of the song to each.

    This list ain't even organized, but I ain't even mad. Outside of Tik Tok and My Name Is, I just haven't heard Sleepyhead or I'm Too Sexy, and the rest are pretty good.

    I'm sure if you Youtube'd it you'd recognise it instantly. Its a godawful cheesetastic party song, and not one I'd recommend playing loud!

    I really like your 60's-80's choices, but past that it gets a bit pear-shaped. Mind you thats when music quality took a deep dive down, so that probably isn't your fault ;)

    Your list seems really awesome.

    Really?? I'm Too Sexy is like crazy well known. Give it a listen and you'll know it. As for Sleepyhead, it was used in a few commercials a while back but I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't know it. Still its an awesome song.

    Whoo - good list, I'm liking 16 of the 20 songs which is pretty awesome. Right Said Fred is just a little too corny for my taste though, and the Ke$ha track seems like the kind of music I go out of my way to avoid hearing. Also not really digging the Metallica or Blue Oyster Cult songs.

    Interesting that this is the first RBB setlist I've seen with a Muse track on it - I would prefer something from OoS or Absolution though ^^. Have to say I'm having trouble figuring how Passion Pit would be charted - pretty bonkers sounding tune XD. I'm always liking that Cake tune when it shows up on the radio now and again - quite an unusual choice too.

    I'd love to see those Gotye and Fun tracks. They've been getting heavy rotation on the radio here in the UK but I'm not sick of them yet ^^. Wonder if we can get Hold On by Alabama Shakes too - another really popular track at the moment.

    Urg - I should really stop looking at these RBB setlists. They're just setting me up for disappointment when the real one arrives! ;-)

    I put Tik Tok there because I couldn't remember the other song I was thinking of (which I now remember to be Calling You by Blue October). As for the Muse song, I personally think that the direction Blitz seems to be going in would benefit from the sound of Uprising, but Plug In Baby would be just as good.
    I'm also a little surprised about the announcement of Two Tickets To Paradise, seems like a song that'd have a really good chance of debuting in Blitz, but whatever.
