    1. Unchained
    2. Lay it Down (Ratt)

    3. Tie depending on circumstances:
    To listen to: Foolin Yourself (Angry Young Man)
    To play: Killing in the Name Of

    (but I do think Everlong is a great song, and a modern day dropped D classic!)

    Don't know what the tuning is on the record, but I play Tool's "Right In Two" in dropped D. The voicings seem pretty accurate to me.

    Hate to harsh your vibe but Even Flow is Open D, and slightly sharp on Ten, due to tape being sped up a little during mastering.

    Everlong
    Tears Don't Fall - BFMV (OK, it's actually drop C, but it's the same principle)
    F#####ng Up - Neil Young, as covered by PJ
