What's the tuning of each string in Drop B?

Well Slipknot do easy songs in Drop B tuning, but Machine Head do better songs in the same tuning IMO. Also most damageplan songs were in Drop B...

Nah, that's just B tuning, not Dropped B.

There's a list of artists using Dropped B tuning on Wikipedia:

If you want some relatively easy songs, go for the "Sirens" album by It Dies Today.

Machine Head - Davidian. It's sort of drop B, you'll understand when you hear/play it.

Skillet uses it alot. Just look up "Comatose" "Whispers In The Dark" or "Falling Inside The Black" to see if you like it.

Almost all Slipknot songs are easy, and very straight forward.

Before I Forget, Sulfur, Spit it Out, Wait and Bleed, Sic, blah blah blah. They're also pretty easy to figure out by ear if you haven't done that before.

I think Amon Amarth tunes to Drop B.

You could also go to B standard (Tuning your guitar like a seven string) and play some seven string songs, like Trivium songs off of Shogun.
