Here's an ear-catching Sonic Youth song (off of Sister) that can be played
with normal tunage.  The basic chord structure (and the intro) is:

  E5                            D#5                          A5

E --------------------------------------------------------------------------

G -9--9--9--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-8--8--8--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8----------------

E5  D#5    A5
Bur-ning inside

I cross myself, it doesnt help

            E5  D#5     A5
Because I am not smart enough

Digging into hot white

E5       D#5    A5
Learning not to lie

 (Riff played twice)
We cross it out and stay away

(after this part, the sonic noise steps in for awhile then it goes back to
the intro again)

E5  D#5    A5
Bur-ning inside

We cross it out and stay away

The song gets sonically noisy again with the high E-string riff playing
repeatedy.  And that is it!
