Explanation of why you picked the songs and the order:

What makes a good concert? Loud anthemetic songs that the whole crowd can sing along to. Each song I picked is more then recognizable even by the occasional rock fan. Plus they are just great songs performed by some great artist.

1) The Who - My Generation - Classic. Perfect way to start off the concert.
2) The Killers - Mr. Brightside - Probably of the most played songs a few years ago, a great song to follow My Gen.
3) The Clash - I Fought The Law - Another classic, if people don't sing along and stomp to this something’s wrong with them
4) Smashing Pumpkins - Tonight Tonight - The more melodic and atmospheric song on the list. Full support from the strings and all.The calm before the storm.
5) Quiet Riot - Come on Feel the Noize - Hundreds of thousands tearing up there voices singing along with this chorus. Fist pumping. Can't beat this is as the closer

5. The Beatles - Hey Jude
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXG83p2nkHw

Explanation of why you picked the songs and the order:

What I was going for this concert was to showcase the best songs from each genre of rock.

1. Europe - Final Countdown - This is Hard Rock with a technoish keyboard feel to it, and of course one of those songs that just gets you pumped, which makes it a good way to start.

2. Fuel - Hemorrhage (In My Hands) - This is Modern Rock, sort of alternative. Lots of Guitars and emotional lyrics, this is one of those songs you always love hearing on the radio.

3. Green Day - Basket Case - This is the absolute perfect form of Punk Rock, performed by one of the premier punk bands ever.

4. Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven - This is a softer song by a heavy rock band, but Zeppelin of course, never grows old. This song may have the best guitar solo EVER.

5. The Beatles - Hey Jude - The perfect example of classic rock, and also the perfect way to end a concert, the crowd can sing along to the Na-na-na-na's at the end. This is a meaningful song and my personal favorite of one of the greatest bands to ever play.
