Bunch of 'em in Sweet Child O' Mine. But I get what you're saying. Probably kids learning to shred avoid major 3rds because they sound too happy. When R&B and Motown were turning into rock, there was a REALLY common bassline that starts on the root, then hits the major third and walks up to the 5th. Hear it in "Let's Get It On" played slow and about 500 different James Brown tunes played fast. But that's probably not the kind of rock you mean.
