Back when "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" came out in the theaters, the scene where Ferris sings "Twist and Shout" in the parade helped me discover The Beatles and began my obsession with music.

i'm going expand the answer to include both first and most recent song.

first: snoopy vs. the red baron, the royal guardsmen (i brought the 45 into kindergarten show and tell!)

most recent: paper birds, the slip (i brought the album into work for show and tell!)

Quiet Riot, of course

Followed closely by:

Bang Your Head (Metal Health)

Contributed heartily to my black concert t-shirt phase
