There's too many to pick from, but Liberation Frequency- Refused. Just because the guy above me posted a Refused song...

Pretty much most heavy metal songs, if not in Drop D some other dropped tuning. What sort of music are you into?
#6
Try some old Biffy songs, they're mainly in drop D, they're fun to play and if you're into grungy rocky metal then they are for you!
Good ones to play are:
Convex Concave (Try the instrumental at the end, it sounds very cool)
Get F****d Stud
Hope for an Angel
All The Way Down; Prologue
All very fun songs to play

a bunch of rage against the machine like take the power back or wake up
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

Most songs by Three Days Grace. Stick It Out by Rush is also good. Pretty easy to play as well.
#13
Almost all of A7X is in drop D, plenty of choices there. I also second Tool, but it's really too bad that Prison Sex and Parabola are in an odd tuning, two songs that I would love to learn

Try something by Get scared, Sarcasm is highly reccomended cuz even though I'm mainly a guitar player everytime I play it I prefer to play the bass lines, and yeah avenges, three days grace, fall out boy, trivium, Ex-creations by the fall of troy, lamb of god, mindless self indulgence, papa roach, yellow card xd Plenty to pick from.
#17
Anything by Tool works. If you drop down to drop C then you can try The Faceless's entire back catalogue - those are some crazy fun riffs/solos to learn

#18
There are some Soundgarden songs in drop D like Black Hole Sun, Spoonman, and Outshined. Even Flow and Go by Pearl Jam are in drop D. Moby Dick by Led Zeppelin, Monkey Wrench and Everlong by Foo Fighters. And as a bunch of people said before, Tool and Rage Against the Machine are mostly in drop D

Almost everything from Porcupine Tree is in Drop D. Colin Edwin has some killer riffs.

You know what would be really sweet? Having a beautiful bird inlaid around the first fret, taking a majestic dump with airborne droppings around the 5th, 7th, 9th frets and so on, with a graceful impact around the 22nd-24th.

Pretty much every song Avenged Sevenfold is written in Drop D. Not too much of a fan of the band myself, all the songs are easy on bass. To my dismay, the bass player switched from his Stingray Musicman to an artist special run Schecter bass...way to downgrade.

People who posted Metallica songs: No, the songs are in D standard. They didn't play in drop D tuning, I'm not sure about the newer stuff but at least the 80s stuff wasn't in drop D. It was either in standard or D standard. (The heaviest songs were in D standard like "The Thing that Should not Be" and "Small Hours", "Crash Course in Brain Surgery" isn't really that heavy but it's in D standard. Other songs were in standard tuning.)

But Crash... can be played in drop D, there's no reason to mess about detuning all the strings.

It can also be played in E standard with the same fingerings as D standard. The pitch will be different but it doesn't matter if you don't play with backing track. D standard is closer to E standard than drop D. The fingerings fit D standard tuning the best because that's what it was originally played in.

Tool have been mentioned already but I have to specifically state Schism.
