I am a bassist and I am going to audition of a death metal band in my school. The problem is that I am unsure of what songs I should learn. What are some good Death Metal songs to learn on bass guitar. (I can play well with pick or fingers)

Why audition for a death metal band if you don't know any songs?

And the obvious Cannibal Corpse suggestions are actually relevent in this thread!

EDIT: I would suggest some Necrophagist basslines, if you can handle them, as they would be pretty impressive.
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)
Sigma DMC-15E
Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon
M-Audio ProKeys 88
Mbox 3 Pro
KRK RP6 G2's
Plum Team FTW!

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

If its old school death metal like the band Death then learn some of their stuff (spirit crusher has a bass intro) or if it brutal death metal try some cryptopsy, cannibal corpse etc. maybe even try a dethklok song

Ive never auditioned for a band by playing a song.
I always mess around with some riffs while im tuning,
then the guys just see how quickly I can pick up on sh*t they already have written.

So basically if you pick up sh*t fast youre set.

He goes to a pretty cool school
Most schools just have a marching band or maybe a jazz ensemble
