What are some good metal/hard rock songs that aren't very hard? I'm in my first band and I want some simple but heavy songs to cover. We're really not into newer metal, I like old metal like Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Metallica, Testament, Death, Morbid Angel, Pantera, Celtic Frost, etc.

Here are some songs we're covering so you have an idea of the difficulty level:

Symphony Of Destruction by Megadeth
Mother by Danzig
For Whom The Bell Tolls by Metallica
Breaking The Law by Judas Priest
Paranoid by Black Sabbath
Procreation Of The Wicked by Celtic Frost

Any good EASY (at least sort of) metal songs?

Riders of the Storm by Hammerfall
Banished From Sanctuary by Blind Guardian

hmm I'm seeing lots of great ideas but remember, our skill level isn't that high. I'm sixteen, been playing 2 years, and I'm in my first band. vamprocker, while raining blood is an amazing song, we would NEVER pull that off lol

remember, EASY songs lol

You could probably pull off:

Metallica - Fuel
Slayer - Skeletons of Society
Slayer - Bloodline
Iron Maiden - The Wicker Man
Megadeth - Peace Sells

you might have to do without the solos or make filler depending on whether or not you can pull those off.

Classic metallica songs (sandman, whisky in the jar, etc)
Iron Maiden (minus solos) are fair easy but great songs.

Not very metal but some these bands have hard(sounding guitars) songs:
Rage Against the Machines, Foo Fighter, Killswitch engage- The end of heartache, motorhead, Staind, even Tenacious D.

most of sabbaths early stuff, like iron man or paranoid, is pretty easy.
Fire it Up by black label society is awesome and simple. look at the tabs for it on this site.
