Oh yeah, I agree with Undercat, you can't go wrong with AC/DC. I like "You Shook Me All Night Long"

Alice In Chains- Man In the Box
Ted Nugent- Stranglehold
Beatles- Revolution, Paperback Writer
Rolling Stones- Can't You Hear Me Knockin'
Deep Purple- Highway Star
Van Halen- Panama
Stone Temple Pilots- Vasoline
Nirvana- You Know You're Right
Cream- White Room
Judas Priest- Breakin' the Law

There are so many great songs. These are just a few of my favorites.

If you know something better than Rock and Roll, I'd like to hear it - Jerry Lee Lewis

I'm gobsmacked. Nobody's mentioned

Whole Lotta Love
Tie Your Mother Down

Shame on you!

And I've been listening to HIM a lot recently - Sacrament and Solitary Man (yes - originally by Neil Diamond) are being played very very loud.

You know, there's one I consistently forget in these lists and shouldn't. I've been listening to the 62 Star Club live performances and am reminded again of how hard this sucker rocks and how much it anticipates even trends like punk:
the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There".

Well we all shine on--like the moon and the stars and the sun.

Couple more for the list:

Ted Nugent: Great White Buffalo
Canned Heat: Goin' Home

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

Some good rockers missing from the list:

Aerosmith - Eat The Rich
Guns 'N Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine, Welcome To The Jungle, Paradise City
Black Sabbath - Paranoid, N.I.B
Scorpions - Rock You Like A Hurricane
Iron Maiden - Fear of The Dark, Two Minutes To Midnight

And hell yeah, I Saw Her Standing There is one bad-donkey rocker, once again proving that as much as The Stones did for rock and roll, The Beatles paved the way for so much more.

Also, since we're branching off into some good ol' punk rockers, may I suggest the following classics to start us off:

The Clash - I Fought The Law
The Ramones - Blitzkrieg Bop

Henry Garza, Saul Hudson, and Darrell Abbott could not be here tonight, but they all had sex and are proud to announce the birth of their two-headed baby, Rodya S. Thompson.

That one by whitesnake that goes "Here I go again on my own! Going down the only road I've ever known!" C'mon, you know you turn it up when it comes on.
