David Bowie for me. Then lots of Beatles.

First song I learned how to play was smells like teen spirit.
I still jam to it every now and then.

A friend of mine was more likely to Nirvana once he started, but i think that's a personal preference only.

I think the beginning of Come As You Are was the first well know lick I did, but I didn't learn the whole song.
I think I'll reserve the real work of learning a whole song for Hey Hey What Can I Do and Kashmir.
