Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes
12 bar blues
Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton
Smells like teen spirit - Nirvana

Here's a few songs that I used a long time ago that require specific techniques without beiing hard at ALL. They'll improve your bends, barre chrords, chord switching, etc. We have...

1. Heaven Beside You- Alice in Chains (bends and barre chords)
2. Schism - Tool (Hammer-ons, playing bass root notes)
3. Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin (string switching and single note slides)
4. Polly - Nirvana (barre chords and applying them all over the fretboard)
5. Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne (hammer ons and certain notes in rapid succession...plus it sound cool for how easy it is )

Those five helped me a LOT when I was first starting out.
Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster, Blackstar HT-5RS, Roland Micro Cube, Alvarez Regent Acoustic
Wishlist:
Carvin V3M
Agile AL-3100 Silverburst

You can try pretty much anything by blink 182. One of the ones I found the easiest is dammit or all the small things. Not a big fan of blink but there songs are really easy

Good list

Also Surrender - Billy Talent (Broken chords if you want to practise fingerpicking, though you can prolly play it with a pick perfectly fine)
