Live cover songs

Posts: 2
I have a band developing and would want to know of any cover songs that are simple and good to perform live. Any style of rock and other genres would be considered.

Here's some songs i use to cover with my band:

“Roadhouse Blues” - The Doors
“Rock the Casbah” - The Clash
“Say it Ain't So” - Weezer
“Tired of Sex” - Weezer
“Possum Kingdom” - Toadies
