Again: If your child starts a band, what songs of the past should they cover until they get enough of their own songs?
I'm thinking, for certain, Long Cool Woman by the Hollies and Emotional Rescue by the Rolling Stones. Maybe Police Truck by the Dead Kennedeys. It has to be upbeat. They'll be playing proms and pep rallies and weddings and such.
Addendum: Thanks everyone for the excellent suggestions. What about Spinal Tap?
