What are some easy songs for a beginner to learn?

Ive been playing electric guitar for about 6 months now, and i can only play the solos from the songs: "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "Come as You Are", Prayer of the Refugee" and "Holiday".

What are some solos that would be easy to learn, but are more advanced than the one for "Come as You Are"? Preferably something alternative, metal, rock, something of that genre.

The intro solos to "One" , "Sanitarium" , and "Fade To Black" by Metallica are all pretty easy to memorize. After that, it's just a matter of playin em over and over to get speed up.

The song is pretty stupid, but "Giving In" by Adema has a super simple solo in it.

Honestly, a good place to start for higher up on the neck would be to tune down a step to D, then learn Head's parts in almost any of korn's later stuff. It's not hard, but it's playing over a melody and it gives you a feel for playin with music.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -
