I've just bought my first guitar & amp. I want to teach myself. What songs are easy for a complete newcomer to pick up?

Right now I know one chord (D) and I am not very good at that but boy am I looking forward to learning chord no. 2. I have a teach yourself guitar book which I will work through, but I want to get onto proper songs as soon as possible.
Bonus points for things I like (Talking Heads, 90s Indie, New Wave, Springsteen...)
