The Encore Continues

It’s that moment when your heart races and every pore screams for more. The instant your favorite band gets back on stage is the moment they are playing only for you. No matter where your allegiance resides when it comes to the show after the show, we have outtakes, playlists, stories and photos to make you yell Encore, Encore.

MR. NOLAN’S SUPER-SCIENTIFIC ENCORE GENERATOR

When you’re in a band, selecting the proper jam for an encore is critical to maximize your chances to crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their women. Everybody knows that.

This is why we had our crack team of musical mathemagicians take a break from their day-to-day rocket surgery and craft this mega-scientific, meticulously-balanced cover song generator. We did all the hard work so you can focus on what you do best – hot rockin’.

Here’s how it works: Take the age of your lead singer and subtract 20*. Compare the resulting number to the list below and that’s the song you should cover. You can’t argue with science!

For example: are you a 45-year-old vocalist in a local bar band? Congratulations! Your band now gets to cover “And You and I”– a 10-minute long magnum opus from prog rock legends Yes.
