im not sure if this is the right place but oh well.

me and my friends are going to go busking so we need some ideas of acoustic songs to cover. we've got a drummer, singer, and me on guitar. we are thinking maybe some red hot chilli pepper songs and maybe some of the acoustic stuff from metallica (ie nothing else matters) but we all listen to heavy metal so we're a bit stuck on ideas for acoustic covers.
What are some hard rock songs that can be covered acoustically?
what are some other acoustic songs that could be covered?

see my profile for what my musical likes are to get an idea of what i listen to to help with suggestions if you need.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: it would be good if the were well known

Just get any song and cover it, if it's not acoustic. Turn it acoustic.
Though, I emplore you to do the Hammer hammer time.

I've never heard Dance of Death by Iron Maiden done acoustically the whole way through but I bet it would sound amazing.

if you want to earn money with it, play some songs the average person might actually like.

yea thats what i need. i need suggestions of songs that the average person might know. maybe more soft/mainstream rock songs that could be done acoustically. i mainly ask because i wouldnt really say my tastes in music isnt exactly the same as the average person.

Some Radiohead? Stuff people know, like Creep. Or High and Dry and My Iron Lung, as well perhaps?

People love Sublime covers, learn the whole self titled and a couple tracks from 40 Oz.
Bon Iver is some cool stuff to do acoustic.

Make sure you get a busking license, or be shut down by the po po

bob dylan always works. I think the peppers is a good idea as well, I've never met a single person that doesn't like Under the Bridge.
