Default Tracks for demo'ing new PA equipment

Hey. I'd like to know if there are any really good tracks that are good for demo'ing PA equipment (esp with subs on them)

We have a couple but they seem really dated, and I wanted some newer stuff to play for customers. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I like to use dynamic tracks when setting up a PA system like,
Primus,Spin Doctors,Faith no more,Greenday, just to name a few.

Cheers !!

The one Green Day album I've got (American Idiot) is one of the least dynamic albums I have come across. Less than 6dB dynamic range and lots of hard limiting.
A prime example of the Loudness Wars.

On the other hand it's pretty close to pink noise which has its own uses when setting up a PA.;-)

Probably because there is no one with the surname Lord-Alge involved in the production!
