I've been playing for two and a half months and all though I'm an avid Green Day and Blink 182 fan, I've found myself bored with just playing songs with nothing but chords in them and not much actual fret work. Songs like, Fat Lip, M+M's, What's My Age Again, the intros of Stay Together For The Kids, Carousel, and Dammit, and Man Overboard more so than the others are songs I found fun to play. I was looking for other songs like those in the same genre. Any help would be much appreciated.

she sells sanctuary - the cult

it's a good song.. maybe not exactly the same genre.. but i started out playing all of the songs you listed except for 2 and enjoyed playing this song

I wanna be sedated. - Ramones.

That's punk and has the worlds most kick-ass solo. Check it out.

Go with Ibanez...Or if you're going high-end, get a Jackson.

*puts up flame shield*

Learn some Fall Out Boy. I'm not sure how much it fits the genre you like, but the guitars aren't just straight powerchords. Well, they multitrack and one track is usually power chords, but there's more stuff to learn other than that.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

Try some yellow card and see if you can get your hands on some of the violin solos.

Some more picking songs are One year, six months...and maybe only one.

Maybe some rise against stuff? Songs like Paper Wings, kick ass intro and a bit of a solo.

I hate trying to cover up my cheese in school because the bimbo next to me dislikes the smell of pure love.

I've learned Pathetic, I'm Sorry, Aliens Exist, Lemmings, Boring, Dick Lips, Untitled, Peggy Sue, Does My Breath Smell, Romeo & Rebecca, Online Songs, Story of a Lonely Guy, and really quite a few more. I was just listing a couple of well known Blink songs so that those who don't listen to full albums might get a better understanding of my question.

Try some Four Year Strong.

Pop-Punk Melodies + Badass Drop D Riffs = Pure awesomeness

Edit: Abandon Ship or Abandon All Hope's got a cool little intro riff you might wanna give a shot.

Monsters by Matchbook Romance is a fun one. Try some stuff by Gallows if you're into the more hardcore stuff.
