Well, I need some easy songs for a band of two guitarists with 2 years of experience (intermediate) and a drummer and bassist who have only played for half a year (beginners). So a song that has two guitar parts, bass, and drums that's easy enough for us to practice.

Enter Sandman's a good 'un. And most off of Iced Earth's Dark Saga album are good, easy songs.

I suggest time for heroes. good solo, but bass and drums are relatively easy. and maybe one by metallica. thats a nice, easy song. :D

i suggest-

The church of Hot Addiction- Cobra Starship (1 guitar tho. but you both can do it at the same time)

My Hero- Foo Fighters (fun guitar, fun bass, kinda hard drums but its fun)

1000 Good Intentions- Rage against

Never Too Late- Three Days Grace (intro is acoustic but you can use Clean)

Fall To Pieces- Velvet Revolver

Ocean Avenue- Yellowcard

Baby Come On- +44 (intro is weird but watch the live version on Aol sessions and you can see how they do it)

Baby Please Don't Go- The Yardbirds

It's not a Fashion Statement it's a Death wish- My Chemical Romance

Famous Last Words- My Chemical Romance

I Turned into a Martin- Misfits

Can I play With Madness- Iron Maiden

Rock My Body- The Higher (newer Pop/Dance band. awsome song. check it out- www.myspace.com/thehigher )

Barracuda- Heart (Amazing song)

Paradise city- Guns n roses (lead guitar might be a challenge. but its fun)

sry if the list is long. i did not want it to look messy. those are some songs i would suggest to play. im a bassist and a guitarist so yea those songs go down my lines.

Any Green Day song is so easy it's pathetic. Full of power chords.
Johnny Cash has some simple songs.
KISS' "Heaven's on Fire" is probably their easiest.

Smells like teen spirit by nirvana is awesome to do.. Its in my set with my band and when I played with some more advanced guys they used it to warm up.

AC/DC is good too. Guitars are fun and the rest is preeeetty basic..Its a good place to start

Scorpions - Rock you like a Hurricane
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Judas Priest - Breaking the Law & Living After Midnight
And someone already mentioned Neil Young's Rockin in the Free World

These are all fairly easy but still take a little practice to sound good as a band.
