Well...(I'm not starting threads using "mmkay..." anymore)
In my tech teacher said he wanted to hear me play the guitar tomorrows class...and it would be like an "Unplugged" thing going on....

Anyways...what songs should I play?

Remember this is going to be played on the acoustic guitar!
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd.

#1 acoustic song I've ever heard.

Society's doing great. There's a rise of people like PlayMadness. I feel pretty good about the way things are going.
If you still have time to learn it then "Pendulous Skin" by Mastodon. Every time I play it people think I'm playing some big Classical Acoustic/jazz/Blues thing.

I learned that there are easy ways to waste your life away when all you have is a computer and a world full of people putting new and interesting things on their boners.

Wow, I've been here for a while.
Signe by Eric Clapton.

However, if we're being all grown up about this (in the pit?) walkingonspikes is dead on
Yeah, I'd stick to mainstream stuff. I was playing my guitar in my dorm lounge, and people asked me to play pop songs I didn't bother to/want to learn.

"did it hurt?"
"did what hurt?"
"when satan piledrived you up from hell you bitch"

say that to a girl and BAM...immediate sex...or a smack

I dunno, I think something like Speed Kills or Juice would be awesome. Play those on an acoustic and some people will be impressed.

It's called Black Girl, or In the Pines, you chump.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
Anything basic you can strum and sing to would work. That or some kinda solo/classical type stuff like Classical Gas (Mason Williams),Dee (Randy Rhoades),Good Bye Blue Sky (Floyd) or Classico (Tenacious D). IMO you should either play somthing you can sing along to or somthing that doesnt have lyrics
acoustic version of everchanging by rise against.

or ben harper

or even more, jack johnson
I'll believe in anything and you'll believe in anything.
Yes, Karma Police by Radiohead.

Try some Neutral Milk Hotel, they're always well received. Easy (very very easy) guitar yet really nice lyrics. Holland 1945, Two-Headed Boy, and She Did a lot of Acid should be easy enough.
The person below me is probably a homosexual.
Any paganini caprice for mad acoustic shredorz skill, or hotel california since everyone knows it.
The Gearz:

Schecter Omen 6
B-52 At-100 head + 4x12 cab
Yamaha EG303
Digitech Bad Monkey Overdrive
Actually, as long as we're mentioning pearl jam, last kiss would have all the girls in the room swarming at you if you can sing along to it. hehe

-Edit- I think you'll be best off just playing what you already play. Just pick your favorite/best song and lay into it.

Not Nirvana's version, chump.
my physics teacher two years ago told me to bring in my guitar and demostrate harmonics. the guy was and still is a ****, and i never got to take it in
The Needle and the Damage Done, Neil Young

Simple but impressive to the uninitiated
I wanna grow up to be a debaser
Swing Life Away- Rise Against
Wonderwall- Oasis

Plus major points for whoever said Layla.
I sell ponies.
Everlong orRazor by the Foo Fighters? Road Trippin by RHCP. And if you've heard it, the acoustic version of Cherub Rok bySmashing Pumpkins of the Earphoria CD, this version is amazing.
I say Yellow Ledbetter by PJ. My favourite song of theirs.

Oh and over the hills and far away would be nice, check this vid

Oh and.. Under the bridge sounds lovely on an acoustic, too.
Let me tell you about heartache and the loss of god
