Hey, i am in a band and we're a bit stuck on songs (cover songs) to learn right now, we have made a few of our own, but need some covers to play to help us progress as a band. We have 4 members, bass, lead guitar, rythm guitar and drums. So i was hoping you guys could recommend us some fairly easy, but respectable songs to learn. I'm a fairly competant bassist, as is the lead guitarist, the drummer is good, however the rythm is not so (but he'll sometimes play bass on harder guitar parts and i'll do the guitar). We like mainly rock stuff, like the chili's kind of style, foo fighters and some indie stuff. But we're fairly open minded, although we'd rather steer away from the Nirvana and Green Day kind of stuff as we want to improve.

Thanks for reading, hope you guys can help, if you need to ask any questions to get a better idea of what songs we should learn feel free.

How about Iron Maiden - Stranger in a Strange Land? Easy to play and sounds brilliant if you perform it well

for whom the bell tolls - metallica
unholy confessions - avenged sevenfold
got the time - anthrax
i believe in a thing called love - the darkness
fade to black - metallica


those are all very easy songs. a bit of practicing and it should be very easy to make them sound good.

Sometimes I pull down my pants and play slap bass with my schlong. So I guess thats pretty important as well.

depending on how good your bassist is... Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots.

Fire by Jimi Hendrix
Californication, Otherside, Give It Away - Chili Peppers
Bulls On Parade - RATM

most good rock bands from the 90's have a ton of songs that are easy to play.

Paranoid - Black sabboth. Well known song, fairly easy, and a solo where ur guitarist can go crazy.
Something like the rodger waters comfortably numb would work well, but from the sound of it ur quite heavy

Try Sum 41 - In Too Deep. It's pretty easy and has a pretty good solo. Do some Feeder songs too although they won't help you improve, the crowd'll like 'em. And maybe also some Lostprophets stuff. Everyday Combat from the new album is pretty simple and the solo be good for your lead guitarist.
