Default Songs for (kind of) beginners on drums?

Hey all, I've been playing Drums for a bit over 2 months now and am more starting to learn songs, but I'm having a bit of a problem finding suitable songs, so if anyone had any suggestions, they'd be appreciated, thanks

Basically everything by the White Stripes. Then move on to Weezer or Nirvana, and when you feel comfortable with that, Hella.

I was going to recommend The White Stripes as well; most people I know seem to have started with them, and even I can play "Seven Nation Army" proficiently.

Been doing some White Stripes for a while now, boring as hell but good practice.
Might start looking into Nirvana then...

Try Scentless Apprentice, it's one of the coolest drum beats Dave Grohl ever came up with – and it's not too hard to memorize.

Could do Queen's "We Will Rock You". Abysmal song, but very recognizable drum beat, and probably one of the easiest in the world.

Dave grohl is really good because his fills are really easy to learn, fit over pretty much any style of music if done properly, and just sound awesome.

Another good one would be the Roots. ?uestlove isn't flashy at all, but he can groove like a motherfucker.
