the vast majority of people on this forum would recommend either hyper condriac music or unintended. the majority is wrong. host is the perfect beginner piece nice easy chords and some nice easy power chords. hyper condriac music and unintended are both nice easy pieces (by muse standards) so both would also be good for beginners. plug-in baby is also quite often recommended but it isn't advisable if you are very new to guitar as you need a strong fourth finger to play well so the tendancy is for beginners to try play it with three fingers this can lead to pretty poor technique so if you're trying plug in baby try to use all four fingers on the main riff.
