The above solutions are very good, but I think it's also worth noting that DLC counts towards the 20 songs, so if you have/wouldn't mind buying some of it, you can make this achievement a little easier. The free songs are a little challenging, but if you are having trouble, why not try them out? Here are some easy DLC songs:

FREE DLC:
Halo Theme MJOLNIR Mix
Top Gun Anthem

Paid DLC:
Messages (Velvet Revolver Pack)
Super Massive Black Hole (Muse Pack)
God Put A Smile Upon Your Face (Coldplay Pack)
I Predict a Riot (Isle of Wight Pack)
Tina (this comes with the GH3 soundtrack, and can also be downloaded on XBL)

As for what other songs to go for, that's personal preference. Depending on what you're good at doing (keeping rhythm or hitting hard solos, etc.), you may find some songs more difficult than others. The other solutions here give good suggestions, but here are my personal picks:

Songs To Start With: Story of My Life, Mississippi Queen, Bulls on Parade, When You Were Young, Lay Down, My Name is Jonas, Sabotage, Reptilia, Closer, Generation Rock, Metal Heavy Lady, Radio Song, Ruby

More Difficult Ones: Slow Ride, Talk Dirty To Me, School's Out, Sunshine of Your Love, Miss Murder, Paranoid, Anarchy in the U.K., Even Flow, Can't Be Saved, She Bangs The Drums

Now, the other solutions here mention some songs that I'd personally stay away from- Avalancha is one. This song has a fairly difficult part at the very tail-end of it; I found it quite annoying to FC and gave up. The other one is Cities On Flame. I think there are 20 songs waay easier than this.

There is one more trick I can give you here. Since you don't need to FC (keep a streak for the entire song) 20 songs, but just get 100%, you can wildly strum through fast parts that you are shaky on just to make sure you hit every note. There are two songs this helps with: The Seeker, and Black Magic Woman.
Lonsta DaMonstaThis really helped me out... thanks for the tip on the DLC!

ViPeR866No problem......I was really surprised to find that none of the other solutions mentioned DLC.

Lonsta DaMonstaI must say, the free DLC was way too hard for me to gold star. I finally just got this achievement, here were my 20 songs:
Slow Ride, Talk Dirty To Me, Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Story of My Life, Sabotage, Mississippi Queen, Sunshine of Your Love, Bulls On Parade, Reptilia, When You Were Young, Miss Murder, Lay Down, Paranoid, My Name Is Jonas, (bonus songs:) Closer, Generation Rock, Metal Heavy Lady, Radio Song, Ruby, She Bangs The Drums

ViPeR866Yeah the two free songs are a little challenging, but I think that some of the songs people were mentioning in other solutions were much harder, and like I said before it's all personal preference. I find Paranoid's overly-strummy solo somewhat difficult, but you may think it's easy. This is merely offering another option that no one mentioned.

ViPeR866I guess I'll add in the guide that the songs are a little harder.
