The Top Ten

1 Never Surrender - Skillet
2 Evanescence - My Immortal
3 Black Sabbath - Iron Man

Anyone who says this is easy has clearly not heard the entire song. There's a fast solo part which is...intermediate, followed by an ending solo part which is also intermediate level. Not to mention you have 3 different riffs to remember. The first riff may be easy, but the entire song is an intermediate level. - naFrovivuS

4 Green Day - 21 Guns
5 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

I learned it in less then 5 minutes

"It's only got a good 3 power chords."
