I'd say SCOM. Instantly recognizeable from the first few chords and would be known by the mass majority of guys and chicks alike. Seems everybody loves that riff and song.

Definitely SCOM...

I see you don't play guitar :blink:

I'd probably have to chuck My Sharona in there aswell.

Nah, unfortunately never learned to play. Wish I had.

Still say SCOM.

"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" is far more recognizable than "Smoke On the Water".

True. Everyone knows the Rolling Stones. Not all that many people know Deep Purple.

You don't have to know a band to recognize the riff.

in the grand scheme of things,more people would recognize Satisfaction

..on the first two notes alone

I'll throw these in there:

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap - U-NO

Round and Round - RATT

Photograph (the good one ) Def Leppard - also a good recognisable intro

Carry On My Wayward Son - Kansas

What a Feeling - Boston

I Love Rock n Roll - Joan Jett ...(don't really care for the song , but you know it when you , hear it!)

edit: I forgot "Crazy Train" by Ozzy and the great Randy Rhoads!

No way. Smoke On The Water is more recognisable. Everyone knows this riff.

What the fuck are you talking about..? What "sacrifice"..? Those soldiers are there sacrificing their health and lives while cowards like you sit behind their computers all patriotic talking bullshit and acting tough.

Huh? All patriotic and talking bullshit? So, in your mind, believing in the cause is prohibited unless you're wearing camoflauge?

You can't be that simple

Maybe you ought to read it again..

SCOM does NOT deserve to make this list, IMO

We all just seem to be repeating each other with Back In Black Scom so on and so forth.

Your contribution however was very useful... :rolleyes:

He did say "we". :huh:
