What song can i learn?

Im kinda stuck on what to learn now, and i need suggestions.
Im a kinda intermediate player, ive been playing for 3 years. Im primarily a metal player, but its boring me now. Im currently playing in standard so id prefer if the song was in standard. Im open to learning any genre of song really, just as long as its not too difficult. Im not very good a fast soloing/shredding but im not too into that anyway, apart from Satch and guthrie govan. For an idea of what i can play, the most difficult songs i know are:
master of puppets - metallica
back in black - acdc
love thing - joe satriani
critical acclaim + almost easy - avenged sevenfold
buttersnips - periphery
On almost easy and critical acclaim some of the shreddy bits im not sure on but the rest are pretty easy to play. Thats not necessarily the style of music i play, i learned all excluding the avenged sevenfold and periphery songs at guitar lessons. If you need any more info, just say

Learn Since I've Been Loving You by Led Zeppelin, by ear. And copy every single nuance, and get the phrasing and tone as close as possible by using the volume control and pickup selector on your guitar.

That'll keep you busy for a while. And it'll make you a better musician.

i figured i should learn some fancy tricks to impress fellow guitarists with so i learned technical difficulties. i think all pedophiles should do that, theyd attract little teenage boys by the thousands.

What really up'd my game was when I started learning Amon Amarth songs. They are very fun to play and will make you a much better player. It is in B tuning however...but don't just stick to standard. When I started exploring other tunings playing guitar was all of a sudden so much more fun and interesting.
