I'd pick All Along the Watchtower (Jimi Hendrix's version)
Hmm..it's kinda steep. But with a sled I can slide down the slope.

I wouldn't choose one song if I had to introduce someone to rock. Rather, I'd have them listen to tracks 9 (You Never Give Me Your Money) to track 16 (The End) off of the Beatles' Abbey Road.

I'm agreeing with grim107. I mean there are lots of bands and lots of styles. I mean I like Beatles totally, and yet hear Def Leppard.

Wrong. Their early stuff may have been considered pop/rock, but at least for the last two albums, they were just considered rock.

Well it is rock, but rock of those times. Much of that stuff might be considered pop today...not to say that "pop" is in any way a negative thing, but it has gotten a negative conotation in the last decade (or two) cause it's been mixed up with other stuff.
Same as you might say early metal of the 60ies is now looked as rock and doesn't really have a lot to do with heavy metal today, maybe by some lyrics.
In any case, what I wanted to say is that definitions of genres change over time, so Calin is right about pop (especially the early stuff), but also grim is right about those being rock songs.

Is this going to be greatest rock song thread like -> my favourite band + song that sounds most like rock?
If that's the case then to prove my point: U2 - Bullet the blue sky
