    i just learned adina by rancid, journey to the end of eastbay by rancid, and hysteria by muse.

    note-- my favorite music to play is punk rock, (examples~ rancid, nofx, bad brains, minor threat, descendents, dead kennedys, all that stuff) i know muse isnt punk rock but the hysteria intro is classic

    NoFX - The Decline

    Hysteria's rather easy, one you figure it out.

    not difficult, but anything by Big Black is really fun to play. I'd suggest starting with a song like Bad Penny

    Rancid - Timebomb is fun to play. Not insanely difficult, but had a cool walking bass line.

    Another that's not super difficult, but it ain't easy either. And it's wicked fun to play .

    Check out the chili peppers first few albums. There's a lot of stuff there that challenging.

    Give 'Walking Away' by Streetlight Manifesto a listen. It's not quite punk rock, but it's close enough and definitely a difficult one to keep up with.

    Death From Above stuff is always wicked fun. I don't know if any of it's actually hard, but it's fun. That melodic pick scraping thing at the beginning of Romantic Rights is great. Took me a little while to figure out what that was.

    Riot and We've Got a Bigger Problem Now by the Dead Kennedys aren't overly hard but they're fun and a lot busier than most punk basslines.

    Cool thread alert! Yep I'd suggest some Lagwagon as well. Anything off Trashed. NOFX Olive Me...or All Of Me...they seem to have two titles for it. Rancid Maxwell Murder.
