Slipknots have some awesome in drop B but its sounds good in drop d (i usually play all my songs in drop d instead of drop B.)

Slipknot - Duality
Slipknot - Left behind
Slipknot - Vermillion
Slipknot - The nameless
Slipknot - Before I forget
Disturbed - Stricken (This will get the audience screaming!)
Slipknot - Wait and bleed

If you wanna break the ice and play a really slow, awesome song (more in the style of pop and rock - simillar to "nothing else matters" by metallica then you should try out:

Slipknot - vermillion part 2

Killing in the name - Rage against the machine

The main riff is so uber cool!
That's the one song that makes me want to keep one guitar in drop D all time tongue.gif

EDIT: now I see Ivan agrees laugh.gif
