There's too many to pick from, but Liberation Frequency- Refused. Just because the guy above me posted a Refused song...

Pretty much most heavy metal songs, if not in Drop D some other dropped tuning. What sort of music are you into?

Try some old Biffy songs, they're mainly in drop D, they're fun to play and if you're into grungy rocky metal then they are for you!
Good ones to play are:
Convex Concave (Try the instrumental at the end, it sounds very cool)
Get F****d Stud
Hope for an Angel
All The Way Down; Prologue
All very fun songs to play

Most songs by Three Days Grace. Stick It Out by Rush is also good. Pretty easy to play as well.

Almost all of A7X is in drop D, plenty of choices there. I also second Tool, but it's really too bad that Prison Sex and Parabola are in an odd tuning, two songs that I would love to learn

Bottom of a Bottle - Smile Empty Soul
My Own Summer - Deftones
Downfall - Trust Company
I'm not the One - Sum 41

Songs in Drop C

Anything by Tool works. If you drop down to drop C then you can try The Faceless's entire back catalogue - those are some crazy fun riffs/solos to learn

There are some Soundgarden songs in drop D like Black Hole Sun, Spoonman, and Outshined. Even Flow and Go by Pearl Jam are in drop D. Moby Dick by Led Zeppelin, Monkey Wrench and Everlong by Foo Fighters. And as a bunch of people said before, Tool and Rage Against the Machine are mostly in drop D
