Looking for songs to play in standard tuning that focuses on alternative strumming intermediate. Suggestions please! =)

Alright, alright. Whatever. Here's what I'll do. I'm an evolutionary biology major. When I graduate I'll give her all my text books for your birthday. And I won't even get her pregnant.

Alternate strumming? Do you mean alternate picking? If yes, then I have 2 words for you: Thrash Metal.

Good alternate picking songs:

Metallica - Dyer's Eve, Whiplash, Trapped Under Ice, or anything else
Megadeth - Rattlehead, Holy wars or anything else
Testament -Over the Wall, DNR, Sins of Omission, or anything else
Gamma Ray - Lust for life (really good one), Somewhere out in space, Strangers in the night, or pretty much anything else.
anything by Helloween.

If no, then I'm not familiar with this technique (I thought almost all strumming was alternate anyway). Acoustic stuff is almost all strumming.

Moderate black metal. Try a few songs like Ea, Lord Of The Depths by Burzum. Standard, and alternate picks a lot.
