Default Top 20 Definitive Rock/Metal Songs of all time

I'd love to know which songs everyone on this forum believes to be the 20 most definitive rock/metal songs of all time (meaning when you think of rock/metal music, which 20 songs represent that the most to you?).

I'm just curious because I'm more into Gothic/Symphonic metal and female-fronted groups but i'd like to start getting into the core of metal and rock music. Just gimme some recommendations!

(hopefully I put this in the right place... )

Kind of tough to type 20 bands
I'll give you a summary: Black Sabbath (late 60s and 70s), Megadeth (late 80s and 90s) and nowadays The Aristocrats (yes, The Aristocrats, 'cos among many other things, they play beautiful metal).
