No offense to the people who suggested songs, but judging by the bands he mentioned, I think you are a little off.

some grateful dead might be your style, like goin' down the road feelin' bad if you like to jam and improv or The Golden Road, Playing In the Band, Fire on The Mountain, Good Lovin, truckin, Sugar Magnolia. Baba O'Reilly by The Who is good, Magic Carpet Ride by Steppenwolf. Or Jet Airliner, Jungle Love, Swingtown, Fly Like An Eagle, Rockin' Me by Steve Miller Band.

Zero - Smashing Pumpkins (Easy to learn and play. For the solo just go nuts with a whammy pedal)
Everlong - Foo Fighters
I like the Sharp Dressed Man - ZZ Top suggestion too.

Are you doing a mix of covers and originals? Most of the suggestions above are just the usual generic UG replies...

Thunderstruck is really good. However two things have to happen: you have to play the intro perfectly and you have to get the crowd singing at least the first part (the "ah ha ha ha" part).

does nobody understand the concept of easy here? *cough* Deathcore dude, etc *cough* since when has sweet child o mine been easy and the trooper!? what part of that's easy?

Try: Song 2 (blur), 500 Miles (the proclaimers), sit down (james), common people (pulp), teenage kicks (the undertones), all the small things (blink 182), and buck rodgers (feeder)
