Hey everyone, what are some good metal songs that are played in standard tuning? I have a floyd rose on my guitar and I don't feel like setting it up for another tuning. I also have 9's on my guitar for now, so it would be uber floppy :/ .
BTW, no Metallica and Megadeth, I think I know enough of their songs.

Thanks.

I know a couple of Iron Maiden songs, but I'm looking for something faster and heavier.

Take songs in D and C standard and play them.

The pitch is off and it sounds like crap when you play drop tuned songs in standard.

Older slayer is half step down, so pretty easy to transcribe if it's that much of a hassle to tune.
