Is there a better rock song from an arrangement standpoint?

I didn't think I could like the song "Sweet Emotion" any more than I already did. But just now I really payed attention to the triangle that comes in for the last verse (substituting the maracas), which coincides with the bass playing the guitar riff for the first time. Oh my goodness that song is well arranged. Talk box, backwards effects, vibraslap, one of the best bass hooks ever, catchy guitar riffs, on and on. It's like the best food: simple ingredients combined perfectly.

Aerosmith "Sweet Emotion"
