"Coolest" Songs of all Time?

Not the "best" songs, but the coolest. Use whatever definition of "cool" you like. Give at least a top 5, but a ten is probably better. Links mean more likely BA. I'll make a list in a sec. Oh, and any genre is fine, so jazz and classical pieces are cool etc.

Update:

Is that Testify by Rage?

Update 2:

1. Goodbye Porkpie Hat - Charles Mingus

(some might say it's too broadway-ish to be cool, but screw that, it's so damn evocative of the big city, and so epic, that to me is cool).

This list is kind of off the top of my head but these are damn cool tunes nonetheless.
