    My favorite heavy riff is "Jumpin Jack flash"...and it's bills song. But you have to lissen carefully or play bass to notice. I now nothing about bass. But what I do know I've learned from that song.

    The mention of Working Man by Rush is a good one. For something a little out of the norm - have a listen to Queens “Ogre Battle” from the Queen 2 album.
