    There are so many that come to mind from many great bands. Besides the obvious ones from Page and Co., I would also nominate from Zep:

    Bring It On Home (after the bluesy, low key intro from Planty and JPJ, when all hell breaks loose).
    Communication Breakdown.
    Custard Pie

    The Bomber - James Gang
    Space Cowboy - Steve Miller Band
    Bastille Day, Fly By Night - Rush
    Young Man Blues - The Who
    Honky Tonk Woman, Street Fighting Man, Start Me Up, - Stones
    Go All The Way - Rasberries
    Ventura Highway - America
    I Want To Tell You, Drive My Car - Beatles
    Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love, Beautiful Girls - Van Halen
    Blowin' Free - Wishbone Ash
    Beginnings - Chicago (it's such a breezy intro)
    So You Want To Be A Rock 'N' Roll Star - Byrds
