What is this song called?

It's a song from the late 60s or 70s, I believe, it is often played at sporting events. It's very very famous and I should know it but I just can't remember. I thought it was Hendrix, but none of the amazon clips for the Hendrix ultimate collection seem to be it. This song is built on one of the more famous riffs in the history of rock. To assist you in your quest to answer my question, I have quickly recorded the riff in a really-really-really-really-xinfinity shitty garageband file(it was either that or sing it into a microphone. I didn't want to sing ). I think it should be enough, because I'm sure about 500 people here will know the answer upon hearing the riff.

namkcuR, you officially fail for forgetting the name of that song.

Smoke On The Water is the last song I performed before an audience. Three years ago. I remember I got so caught up in the performance that I did a traditional rock god pose during the end of the solo (kind of like this). I miss being in a band.

Here's 1,683 people playing Smoke On The Water:

Thank you.

Fuck me....I knew 'purple' was part of it! That's why I thought it was Hendrix. Purple Haze. Dumb mistake.

I've deleted the file to save myself any further embarassment

Once in a blue moon I'll think about getting a DP greatest hits CD and then wonder if I'm ever gonna listen to it much. lol. I like a handful of their songs but they can get a bit boring sometimes.

You thought Smoke on the Water was a Hendrix tune?

Man, we really need to get you listening to some Jimi...
