24Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N Roses

Okay this sample is easily the worst Guns N' Roses cover I've ever heard. Don't think this is a ripoff though. - Nickelstickman

25Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Black SabbathV1 Comment
26Down in It - Nine Inch NailsV1 Comment
27Ritual - Ghost

The riff is from Symphony of Destruction by Megadeth. - Metal_Treasure

28I Can't Quit You Baby - Led Zeppelin

Original: I Can't Quit You, Baby by Willie Dixon. It's the same song, with same lyrics and title. - Metal_Treasure

29You Shook Me - Led Zeppelin

Original: You Shook Me by Willie Dixon. - Metal_Treasure

This is a false rip-off suit, I never think he rip-off the "He's so Fine" just because the "ha-lle-lu-jah" is similar to "doo-lang doo-lang doo-lang" - somekindofaguy
