From 1954 to 2011

So earlier in our show today, The Chad and I played a mini-block of a couple of songs that showcased rock through the ages. I found this amazing video of a guitarist by the name of Alex Chadwick plays 100 guitar riffs in one take. He outlines a basic history of rock and roll by starting in 1954 with the song "Mr. Sandman" by Chet Atkins and finishing in 2011 with "Cruel" by St. Vincent. There are plenty of iconic guitar riffs in between, and it's impressive how he plays the entire video in one take. Here is the link to the video:

What do you think? Are there any bands or iconic songs that you feel have been left out of this video? Let us know your opinion in the comments section.
