Bird with a Hole in the Stomach and King James are two really good Buckethead songs. I LOVE them.
The song by Heathen called "Guitarmony" has a lot of harmonizing.
Some of these might not be quite your style, but they're all fun to play.

Enter Sandman-Metallica

21 Guns-Green Day

Sweet Child O' Mine-Guns N Roses

Good Times, Bad Times-Led Zeppelin

Let it Die-Foo Fighters

Shine-Collective Soul

Even Flow-Pearl Jam

I hope that at least some of these will work for you. They're all mostly popular.
I like Even Flow and Alive among others, and the song Brother is really good too.

My favourite guitarist, definitely Joe Satriani, followed closely by Randy Rhoads.

Yeah, same here.
I played "By the Way" by RCHP and then some of my own material on guitar.

In Bloom-Nirvana
Nothing Else Matters-Metallica

Those two are great, also the "Simple Man" solo by Lynyrd Skynyrd is a good one.
Yeah, I agree. It was pretty much like cramming words into a space. There isn't any kind of flow to it. Some of it was kinda interesting though...

but I do have a lot of other favorites...
I own a Epi Les Paul and it's good, but I'm thinking of upgrading to a different guitar some time soon. It is good for rock but I'm not to sure about metal.
Little Wing is a good one. I don't think it's too hard at all.
