FREEBIRD!! PLAY FREEBIRD!!! Just a joke. It seems like most people know the stuff of Social Distortion's self titled. And they are kind of sing a longish.

ANSWER #8 of 14

"Animal I Have Become" Or "Pain" By: Three Days Grace, they rock and I bet you guys do too. :) They're very well known also, so I would perform one of their songs. They have some pretty good lyrics. Ooh ooh ooh! (Sorry I got excited) Um, another song that has some pretty awesome lyrics is "You know what they do to guys like us in prison" By: My Chemical Romance. That is like my favorite song. It's awesome, people should fall in love with it. It usually takes me a long time to really love a song, but that one I instantly fell in love with.

Hope that helped!
