As I see the ignorance of humanity engulfing reason and sanity like a wave of perpetual defeat and misery I ask myself, when the hell is everyone going to shut up and actually think?

"Sweet Home Alabama" is very easy and is a good song for a beginner to start with.

Disarm, by Smashing Pumpkins (there are a couple embellishments or variations in the actual version that can be ignored and still sound authentic) or Zombie, by The Cranberries

Nirvana - Polly
(in the chorus type thigns a Bb comes in it off as a powerchord?)

Pearl Jam - "Last Kiss" has those exact chords your looking for. it follows the typical I vi IV V formula. plus, it's a really nice classic that he could show off to his parents
