+1 for Don't Get Fooled Again. And I would say that the Who has not maintained as big a public presence as the Stones or others, but we all can recognize and sing along with many of their tunes. Great playing and, for the day, really good recordings.

Rock & Roll by Led Zeppelin all performances are great
Yeah, and when it was the opening of a live show, your breath was taken away. Still didn't quite equal, for me, opening with Immigrant Song...

I want to throw Summertime Blues from Live at Leeds out there.

On the subject of the Who, I htink that their performance of See Me, Feel Me as Woodstock was pretty awsome as well. At lot less polished than the studio version, much more raw. And with two kick ass solos to boot! Possibly one of the heaviest Who pieces I remember hearing.

See Me, Feel Me- The Who

I agree for the most part, and I'm still trying to learn Tommy from start to finish. My favorite is the Amazing Journey / Sparks from "Live at Leeds"

Hey Jude, as recorded at Trident Studios and released as a video which was first shown in the US on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour on October 6, 1968.

You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Stones recorded it about 6 months after the Beatles' Hey Jude. It's a brilliant story about the rise and fall of the 60s decade.

You've Got To Hide Your Love Away - beautiful ballad by the early Beatles - perfect in its form, musicality, simplicity and brevity. Plus, they paid a musician £6 to play the flute part in the last refrain.

Too many to name. Two that come to mind:

Guns N' Roses - Knockin' On Heavens Door
Tesla - Mama's Fool
