Thanks everyone for the help! I'm slowly but surely getting the hang of it...
You are all special people, who deserve cookies.
Troll Radiohead fans, meet friends, eat pie:
Everyone seems to be focusing on chord heavy songs...I must be the only guitarist that sucks at doing chord changes (minus power chords, of course). Five years and I still can't do a fluid chord change in a song.
It is not closed-minded to dislike something. It is, however, closed-minded to degrade something simply because you dislike it.
However I've recently taken to learning Beatles songs on bass and banjo parts to Flogging Molly songs on guitar, and that's been fun.
A few "easy" songs (I can't think of anything REALLY easy that hasn't already been mentioned, but I'd consider these to be on the low end of moderate):
Code Monkey - Jonathan Coulton
Carry On Wayward Son - Kansas (The chorus gets a little chordy, but most of the song isn't too bad)
Seek and Destroy - Metallica (Yes really. You move around quite a bit, but it's not chord-heavy and the patterns are fairly repetitive, so If you can figure out the first 30 seconds you're good for the majority of the song)
The Takeover, The Break's Over - Fall Out Boy (WAY easier than it sounds, trust me. It takes some work, but it's fun as hell once you figure it out. I wouldn't start with this one, but once you find your way around the fretboard a little bit this is worth a shot)

"Music Band"? I'll pick it up right after I get through "Fighting Men" and "Shooting People". - Kiggidykev
I just remembered another one...
King of Everything - Anarchy Club
This song is incredibly easy. Thanks to the power of Drop D, it is literally just one barre chord moved up and down the neck.
I will not remove this until Badmotorfinger is offered as full-album DLC.
Sevendust solos are pretty easy, it's pretty much octave chords loaded with wah moved up and down the neck.
