I want to learn to play double bass, have a yamaha DTXplorer and DW9002 double bass pedals. I can do 25 to 6 to 4 and disturbed stuff fairly well, but want more than just constant bass hits. (and I can do those with 1 foot anyway)

Any advice? :)

    Amberian Dawn songs are always good, Blackguard have some nice 2x Bass Pedal versions (I think A Blinding Light is particularly good), Neonfly - Ship With No Sails and has some really cool double bass stuff that isn't just running in place. If you want a real challenge, look for SikTh - Bland Street Bloom, Massive Slavery - Humanity's Last Hope, or one of the Serianna songs, Inheritors and Fragments.

    The two Broken Equilibrium songs are probably the easiest to ease yourself into double bass with.

    Wait, maybe only one of them had a double bass version, I forget.

    relentless chaos by miss may i is good for learning even though its not technically a 2x bass version, it still charts most bass notes, especially the constant rhythm of bass notes without being too fast, and is really fun

    Marianas Trench is a good one

    Considering that you probably want to shy away from the nasty stuff, I would recommend.

    Basic 2x songs
    The Brave / Agony Applause (2x Bass Pedal) by Deadlock.
    Relentless Chaos (as mentioned above BigWoodMan, not a 2x song but plays well on 2x kicks)
    Broken Equilibrium - November (2x Bass Pedal)

    Fun 2x songs - I find these 2x songs very fun to play.
    Battle of Egos Part I (2x Bass Pedal) by Winter Crescent
    Epic Symphony in A Flat Minor, Third Movement: Zero Hour (2x Bass Pedal)

    More challenging 2x
    Deception - Concealing Fate Pt. II (2x Bass Pedal)
    August Burns Red - Marianas Trench (2x Bass Pedal)
    Texas in July- Magnolia (2x Bass Pedal)
