I've never seen this thread, but it's a simple one, so I would guess that it's been asked before.
What was the first song you learned?

This may be a common answer: Black Sabbath - Iron Man
"Quick to judge. Quick to anger. Slow to understand. Ignorance and prejudice and fear walk hand-in-hand."
- Rush, "Witch Hunt"

For bass (which happened first; before guitar)-The Police, Spirits in the Material World Yea, I am old. This was in 1997, I was 16. Another one was from The Wall Pink Floyd Empty Spaces/Young Lust. A year or so later on guitar was Sunshine Of your Love.

Rump, a P-bass delivers a rump in the sound such that, similar to the rump on an African American woman, it is the highlight of the tone.

For bass, I think the first song I learned was Dance, Dance by Fall Out Boy.

And for guitar, the first song I learned was This Afternoon by Nickelback.

"If you're going through hell, keep going."

Bob Marley - Redemption Song on my guitar
then to Deep Purple - Highway Star, and i built from there.
On bass, I think it was Black Night by aforementioned band, and from there I went straight to Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth), a couple of other Metallica songs and then to Iron Maiden.

My first non-metal song on the bass was You're The First, My Last, My Everything by Barry White

Hell yeah! Lightning Wentz is awesome!

Anyways... Mine was technically Feel Good, Inc. by Gorillaz, but I had started learning Orion and Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth) on guitar (the bass part for the former though) about a month or so before I got my first bass. On guitar... I think it was some of the chords of House of the Rising Sun. And trombone - Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

Bass - Smells Like teen spirit :P
Guitar - come as you are

Now, in 5 years, I barely know any songs, I always end up making my own riffs and songs.

i'd memorised parts of Seven Nation Army by White Stripes and Holiday in Cambodia by Dead Kennedys but i think the first full song was Helloween's cover of Judas Priest's The Hellion/Electric Eye
