Unintended, Soldiers Poem, Shine by Muse
Just the Way I'm Feeling by Feeder (Good one)
Trains by Porcupine Tree
Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want by The Smiths. (Ok, its on a mandolin, but sounds just as good on acoustic)
Beautiful World by RATM (Sounds phenomenal acoustic, really easy too)
this thread is ridiculous. so many songs have similar progressions its almost stupid to play it that way. a better title would be what acoustic riffs should you learn

I like this thread actually.
I find myself practising techniques far too often and when on parties, when someone hands me a guitar, I have nothing to play apart from a couple of riffs and things that I just happen to know. I'm going to learn some of these songs.
I do not want to have a signature anymore.
^ +1. Sucks to be handed the guitar at parties.

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

Beer is the solutions to the world's problems.

Far Behind by Candlebox
4 chords through the whole song (G, Em, D, C), and if you can put in that main lick for an intro, it sounds real good on acoustic.
El Scorcho-Weezer
Black-Pearl Jam
Daughter-Pearl Jam

Edit: I'd also like to add Karma Police-Radiohead, my friend does quite a good cover of it without much thought

Lots of good songs already said.

Brown Eyed Girl is an absolute must for everyone though.
"Why Georgia" - John Mayer

Pretty easy, but has a tough part in the middle with some looong finger stretches on some power chords. The intro and verse is tight and easy. check it out.

I'd go with Sweet Child O Mine by Guns N Roses, Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd,
You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC, Bohemian Rhapsody is an awesome one if you can play it. I've got the Queen tab book and have learnt it. Cuz it's mostly piano, there are some really arrogant chords in it but it's probably the best party trick you can have on a guitar.
Even if no one knows these songs they sound nice just play them and everyone will swoon and kiss you and say you no longer sound like a donkey with no tongue
