Hi,

I'm playing the bass for quite some years now and I just found a crappy squier on the attic and I want to learn some songs on it. Does somebody have any suggestions? In like super easy songs?
No

Downer by Nirvana is incredibly simple. Paranoid's always a good one, as it's basically a dumbed down version of the bass part. You could also probably learn the entirety of the Danzig-era Misfits discography in an afternoon or three.

Some different ones. Horse with no name by America good for some basic chords. Come As you Are by Nirvanna has a nice single note line. Then if you are up to it Lady Writer by Dire Straits.

Guns and Roses song "I used to love her" is three chords , D , A and G with the guitar tuned a half step down and very easy to play .....

Without knowing what style you're into, it's not easy. I've been playing classic rock and blues for 50 years and a bit of country here and there...

Almost anything by CCR.
Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton slow and simple.
Sandman - America
Lying Eyes - Eagles
Magnolia - JJ Cale and Poco both recorded it, JJ Cale wrote it
Son of A Son of A Sailor - Jimmy Buffett

Can't think of anything else, I'm sure a dozen more will pop into my head 10 minutes from now...

Listen tot he radio for a while and pick out a few with only a few chord changes, probably the slower the better at first.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...

Come as you are is a great one for beginners, depending on how much of a beginner you are. If you've already been playing bass, and have a decent understanding of the mechanics of a fretted instrument, it's mind-numbingly simple. But it's one of the best songs for absolute beginners, to learn the basics of keeping rhythm with the picking hand, and fretting notes on multiple strings.
