How about '"Embryonic Journey" by Jefferson Airplane or Hot Tuna?

I am

- Metallica -

The thing that should not be
Minus Human (this is actually dropped to C with other strings dropped half step
Dirty Windows (also like above)

Minus Human

And all the things you said to me
I need your arms to welcome me
But a cold stone's all I see

Let my heart go

They're not recent, but any song by The Presidents of The United States of America (PUSA, I ain't typing that again! :)) is in dropped D.

The guitar he plays only has the an E tuned to D, an A and a D string - all moved up one string space so they're not so close to the edge of the neck. Check out the break in Lump for the fantastic stuff you can do so much more easily with that setup... - Guitar Chord/Scale Finder/Viewer

I think Chet Atkins version of the John Lennon song Imagine is in drop d and surprisingly easy to learn, if you don't try to match Chets fills and fancy fingerstyle. Just play the melody.

Happy Sunsets!

Marilyn Mansons 'Beautiful People" is a good intermediate one to learn because of the temp its on.
A lot of Tools songs on their "lateralus" album are good for that as well.
Silverchairs "Anthem for the year 2000", is a nice simple Drop-D tuning.

Many animals were harmed in the making of this signature.
