dueling banjos is all i can think of.
Great riff. See also: King Rat.
Sticking with Modest Mouse there's also Bukowski, This Devil's Workday and Perfect Disguise. And possibly others I've forgotten about. There's also The Divine Comedy - Mother Dear and REM - Wendell Gee and the intro to I Believe. And Sufjan's got plenty of banjo.
But it would be rad if you tried playing a song that doesn't have a banjo in the original but has the potential to sound good on banjo. Like a song w/ some delicate strumming/plucking on the bottom three strings. Maybe Atlas Sound's The Light That Failed?

Does not have to be bluegrass or anything.
is an awesome song to play on banjo. Try it.
