    Try some alternative rock songs like from bush or whomever. They usually have some pretty easy stuff.
     
  3. how about: nirvana - come as you are
    queen - another one bites the dust
    type o negative - black no 1
    maybe pink floyd - money

    Give these a shot

    If it suits your taste, lots of blues songs and/or 50's Rock and Roll would fill the bill.

    Running with the Devil ey :p
    Easy really easy, but still i cant say if its on the E string fret 5 or 3 but should you count yourself satisfied if it SOUNDS right. God... i seriously dont know how to figure out what fret so if i cant be sure of running with the devil im in a critical stage any suggestions?

    Feel so hopeless... f***k!

    Led Zep - Dazed and Confused
    April Wine - I like to rock (does anyone know how to play the intro 100% and can tab it? I want to know if i got it right)
    Pink Floyd - Money
    AudioSlave - Drown Me Slowly
    The Beatles - Come together (actually, most beatles songs)
    Queen - Another One Bites The Dust, Under Pressure
    Van Halen - Ice Cream Man

    And most crappy new rock, blink, sum, etc. is incredibly simple, and while it may be painful to listen to, you can just transcribe then forget it, and your ear will be a little stronger.

    The Offspring - Gone Away and The Kids Aren't Alright (they have a little more speed but are easy)

    Tom Petty and the H.B.'s - Mary Jane's Last Dance

    Rage Against The Machine - Killing In The Name Of

    Ramones - (eh, pretty much anything)
