Epic Piccolo Parts!!

Has there ever been a song or a piece that you have played in school band or Symphonic Band where the piccolo part during full FORTE Tutti sections was just so EPPICCC that you wished that there were more than 2 Piccolo players currently playing at once in your Symphonic Band at that moment!! If so name the piece.
The piece I played Piccolo in is called "The Witch and the Saint" by Steven Reineke

I need some new song ideas

A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.

Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.
