I recently first listened to 'Can't Stop' by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I really like how this song builds up tension in the beginning using a (I think) guitar hammer-ons technique. I could swear I heard other songs beginning like this or at least similarly. Therefor I was hoping this community could help me identify these songs.

I play competition freestyle dogfrisbee, and it's always a challenge to find good songs to match the choreographed routine I do with my dogs, I'm hoping to find some nice candidates in your answers.

Thanks in advance!

Thunderstruck has some good hammer on and pull offs.



The Handler - Muse has a huge bridge that Matt plays SOLELY with hammer-ons and pull-offs after the second chorus at 2:19.
