“Seven Nation Army” by WHITE STRIPES

Talk about deeply recognizable basslines. This song, created by duo The White Stripes, has become a high school pep band classic, as well as one of the most easily recognized songs on bass line alone. The title of the song comes from when Jack White, as a young child in Detroit, misheard “The Salvation Army” as “The Seven Nation Army”.

“Song 2” by BLUR

This is one of those songs that you can recognize within the first 2 seconds. It’s a super catchy satire of grunge music from a relatively smaller British act. Well, smaller before this song catapulted them into the spotlight.

“Stairway To Heaven” by LED ZEPPELIN

Love it or hate it, this Led Zeppelin track is held on a rock n’ roll pedestal in the grand museum of rock greats. The way the song “climbs,” like stairs, Jimmy Page’s melodic guitar solo, and Robert Plant’s high and clear vocals make “Stairway” an icon.

“Streets Of Philadelphia” by BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

Bruce Springsteen released “Streets of Philadelphia” as a single in 1993 for the movie Philadelphia. The lyrics don’t contain many specific references to the City of Brotherly Love. The song’s official music video, however, provides the most direct references to Philadelphia.

Jack Bruce got the idea for this song’s iconic bass line after seeing Jimi Hendrix in concert. Helped along by a classic Clapton guitar solo, this song is cemented as a pivotal song in rock history.
