    For me, it has to be "Sultans of Swing" by Dire Straits.

    The portrait of this amateur band is just like my perfect vision of playing music.

    Gallien Krueger for the last 12 years!
    That, and "Jukebox Hero" are the ultimate 2!
     
  3. "Theme from a NOFX album" by (you guessed it ) NOFX

    "This song has probably been played before" by SHJ.

    "R.A.M.O.N.E.S." by Motorhead or the Ramones

    They'll be more to come, trust me.

    For grins, either Jazz Discharge Party Hats or Stevie's Spanking by the late Mr. Zappa.

    Love that name. I once played in a band that changed it's name every gig. Our female singer once came up with "Grandpa's Wrinkly Finger" to use at a show.

    I play that one with my classic rock cover band. Why didn't I think to list that one? Doh!

    Another golden oldie, can't remember who sang it:

    - Rollin Stone-

    "Well we're big rock singers, we got golden fingers, and we're loved everywhere we go.

    We sing about beauty and we sing about truth....at ten thousand dollars a show.....

    We take all kinda pills to give us all kinda thrills, but the thrill we've never known,

    Is the thrill that'll hit ya when you get your pitcha on the cover of the Rollin Stone."

    ==========
    Man...I can't believe I remember that stuff, wasnt' that like the early 70's?

    If you've never heard it there is an incredible guitar solo in it. LOL! :D
