The first one that came into my head was Lenny Kravitz - Are You Gonna Go My Way.

A bunch of the ones already mentioned are fantastic, but just to add some other hooks that I think are brilliant:

Iggy Pop - Bored
The Meters - Cissy Strut
RATM - Sleep Now In The Fire
Funkadelic - Hit It And Quit It
The Cure - Boys Don't Cry

As someone else said, it's merely scratching the surface and you could keep listing songs for hours...

The song hardly gets mentioned as a classic and the band especially I don't think gets the praise it deserves amongst other 70's bands imo
If a song is used in multiple advert campaigns on TV, I don't think it can be underrated
