I know you won't use these but I'll suggest them anyway:
Johnny B. Goode - American Graffiti - teen cars stuck in traffic getting shaving cream smeared on them and hit by water balloons
Home Alone - Run Rudolph Run - the whole family running through the airport to catch their flight
Men in Black - Elvis's cover of Promised Land - played by Agent K while he drives upside down with J through the tunnel

Oh well, maybe you'd include this in the intro: John Lennon said, “If you tried to give rock ’n’ roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry.’”

I also checked in the Chuck Berry's page before suggesting this, and I was surprised there was no more options. So, I don't know what's the use of adding options that won't garner more than ten votes anyway.

Pulp Fiction and Back to the Future didn't just use the songs as elements of the soundtrack, something to fit with the story, but something that actually drives the narrative, they are musical interludes but you can't imagine the films without these songs, Chuck Berry's songs are signigicant parts of their iconic status, which can't be said for any of the other movies.

Take American Graffiti, there must be like 100 oldies' songs in the whole film and I don't think one can tell when we can hear Chuck Berry , the most memorable part being the intro with Rock Around the Clock.

To be honest, I was disappointed not to find more 'undeniably' iconic moments, so I guess I won't use them but I'll make a third option "another one".
