This thought popped into my head today as I was listening to some music, what are some songs that are the definition of classic Rock n' Roll? I hope that makes sense to you. What do you think are some songs that come to mind when someone uses the term Rock n' Roll?

For me it's:

Big Gun- AC/DC
Walk This Way- Aerosmith
Layla- Eric Clapton
One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer- George Thorogood and the Destroyers
Sweet Child O' Mine- Guns N' Roses
Purple Haze- Jimi Hendrix
Communication Breakdown- Zep
The Unforgiven- Metallica
Rockin' In The Free World- Neil Young
Bark at the Moon- Ozzy Osbourne
Highway to Hell- AC/DC
You Shook Me All Night Long- AC/DC

You don't have to limit it to one or two genres, I noticed that I kind of did.
Fender American Deluxe V-Neck Strat
Laguna LG300CE Acoustic Electric

Meh, I usually just buy them off the local shaman, unless I'm in the wilderness, where I rely on raw meat to raise my HP.

I got kicked out of a Mac store when me and my friends simultaneously put on meatspin on all of the computers in the store. Some eleven or twelve year old looking girls there freaked out.

Nothing mentioned in this thread, besides Chuck Berry.

Try Eddie Chochrane.

yep...the man of the hour, decade, and everything else...i use even my AIM screenname is nineteenflights (got a little short of breath...and some bitch already had twenty).

Bill Haley and His Comets, Gene Vincent, and Little Richard are great as well. Chuck Berry needs no explanation...duck walk can walk all over you.


though that's not to say any of the aforementioned are bad...AC/DC damn tasty.

No Particular Place To Go - Chuck Berry.

Seems to me, nobody's quite sure of the divide between Rock and Roll and Rock.
