Metallica - Seek and Destroy
Metallica - Master of Puppets
Maralyn Manson - Beautiful People

Tune your guitar to Drop D (6th string tunes down to D) then just play chords that are your index finger across the bottom 3 strings these will sound like power chords but deeper and easier to switch between.

1-your a close-minded asshole,that's why you can't tell the difference

2-CC plays almost exclusively in Eb, sometimes in B and they also uses 7-strings

for the easy metal riff....

Breaking the Law-Judas Priest
Any Black Sabbath songs
most of what have already been said....

if you want a mixture of chords and plucking, go with como estais amigos- iron maiden

paranoid by black sabbath helps with your control skill

fear of the dark- iron maiden sounds really good

for some easy soloing, try the civil war or knockin on heavens door solos (the interludes if you find the main ones too hard), or try Brothers of Metal by Manowar

some old Metallica, it may not be easy at first but try Master of Puppets, Seek and Destroy, and For Whom The Bell Tolls.

Lamb of God - same as metallica but just practice.
Pantera - I'm Broken, Walk, Cowboys from Hell

System of a Down - Aerials
I love that riff also
Slipknot has a few good ones, (sic), Before I Forget and Duality are pretty simple
