the tapping part of eruption is a joke
its easier than nirvana songs
if you know how to press buttons with your right index or middle finger, and you know how to do hammer ons and pulloffs you can do the tapping in eruption

well, if you don't clean pick you could play good riddance by green day or I found Iron Man very easy...

bad company - feel like making love
Who - wont get fooled again (intro and verse)
ACDC - highway to hell
Most green day songs
Avenged Sevenfold - Warmness on the soul (if you substitute the piano parts for full guitar chords (Em, C, G, and D)...the solo for that song was the first I ever learned.

There are a lot of pretty easy songs out there, especially if you take out the solo. If you're looking at easy solo's too...you just need to practice because there aren't too many that are really really really easy. it wouldn't take that much to learn them though.
Good luck!

AC/DC - "You Shook Me all Night Long", "Highway to Hell"
Tom Petty - "Free Fallin", well actually pretty much all of his stuff is easy, you may need a capo.
Skynyrd - All I Can Do Is Write About It
Black Crowes - She Talks to Angels (in Open E tuning)
As said, most Green Day stuff.

the easyiest song I know is all power chords, and chicks like it. & Easy to sing even if you cant.

Ghost of a good thing - Dashboard confessional
#34
James Blunt's you're beautiful is quite easy and popular. Girls love **** like that. But then if you're trying to impress a guy then try some white zombie... Thunder kiss '65.

American Pie - Don McLean

Pretty easy and everyone knows it. It's nice to play as well. If not, try Father and Son by Cat Stevens/Yusef Islam I was chuffed to pieces when I learnt that, even if it is pretty simple it's an awesome song.

Wonderwall

Tell me why I had to be a powerslave
I dont wanna die, Im a god, why cant I live on?
When the life giver dies, all around is laid to waste.
And in my last hour,
Im a slave to the power of death
