Hey, by the time it becomes a song, any such incident would be folklore and, as such, the details would end up being changed a bit. And "battle of the Strats" does kind of have a resonance in it; that way, the battle's one of skill, not of one club's favorite instrument over another.
And yeah, 'Sweet Child o' Mine' is perhaps a bit weak in context. So...
"Stairway to Heaven" and "Sultans of Swing"
Layin' it down hard with all six strings;
"Highway star" but turned kinda metal;
And then "Sympathy for the Devil"
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome
Where Alph, the sacred river,
Through caverns measureless to
Down to a sunless sea
