Songs that make great Ringtones

What songs do you think would make for some cool ringtones, any genre. Just got an Iphone and was complaining about how it didnt have custom/downloadable ringtones. So i found a program that lets you create custom ringtones and send them to your phone and now im drawing a blank
All i got so far is:

Freak on a Leash (Korn)
Wish You Were Here (Incubus)
Pain (Three Days Grace)
Baby I Like It Raw (ODB) reminds me of Knocked Up, lol

Conroy by Cake from their latest release "B-Sides and Rarities". If I could make that a ringtone and put it on my little Nokia, I would be elated. You should check it out. Here it here at cakemusic:

The opening riff of "Walk" from Pantera.

...also, the beginning of Depeche Mode's "World in My Eyes" makes a pretty cool ringtone.

KISS - Unholy
Ratt - Got Me On The Line
KISS - Calling Dr. Love

I've edited all three to 25-30 second bits that make great ringtones.

I used to have
  • the opening of Van Halen's Hot For Teacher (Alex & Eddie's part)
  • the chorus of the Foo Fighter's Everlong
  • the instrumental breakdown from Prince's Computer Blue (known by Prince fans as "Father's Song")
  • the opening of Joss Stone's Fell In Love With A Boy
