Five. One to actually do it, and four to reminisce about how much better the old tubes were.

Deftones play in Drop Db.

Bayside plays D Standard, that is if youre into that. I also listen to them alongside Necrophagist and The Human Abstract =p

Anything by System of a Down, they don't always play in Drop C or D standard but the majority of their songs are in those tunings.

Learn the entire First Strike Still Deadly record by Testament. That should keep you more than busy.

You know there's software that can tune a song up or down, and still keep the original tempo.

Like Soundforge... Most of the songs i play at home are standard E, and i'm tuned to Eb.

Jesus...so many idiots have posted in this thread
D Standard is NOT the same as Eb Standard or Drop D

TS - Some Metallica (Sad But True?), Most BFMV (As you mentioned :shrug, Mastodon, Children of Bodom

P.O.D. used primarily D Standard and Drop C.

you can also just play some E & Eb standard songs in D and they sound heavier.

Almost every Motley Crue song except home sweet home if youre into them. And i see you like all that remains, everything off their album The Fall of Ideals is in drop d. Also like someone said before, try out drop C, waking the demon is in that tuning

Dream Theater's "Forsaken" and "A Rite of Passage" are down a whole step both songs are fun and easy for the rhythm but the solo's and sweeps are insane, especially on A rite of Passage, but alot of fun to play
