Every song ever

You should be looking to use alternate picking wherever possible as you need to be comfortable using it in a variety of situations. It should ideally be your "default" picking choice, however you always have the option of picking something differently if it sounds better another way, or is easier to play another way.

this is the most vague question ever... You couldn't have been any less informative even if you tried.

Why are you all assuming that "alternate picking" has to equate to "fast"?

I don't think this at all, I'm simply responding to his effortless thread with an effortless response.

Exactly, because guitar shouldn't be played unless its a horrid, shredded crap fest.

So tell me, what else should I have added, because in reality, there's really nothing more to add. It was a simple question, I expected nothing more then a simple response.

Sounds beautiful when played on a distorted electric guitar, as well.

Grieg's In The Hall Of The Mountain King.
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.

Haha most of these suggestions so far have frankly been terrible... WAY too hard to begin with. Dream Theater? Come on.
Start off with like "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor. "Wipeout" is easy. "Smooth Criminal" by Michael Jackson/Alien Ant Farm... The James Bond theme song. The Peter Gunn song (you've heard it).
