I'm fairly new to black metal, so please excuse the lack of examples.
What really sold me on the whole genre was Behexen's Mouth of the Leviathan:
At 0:55 they go into this rock groove that just stuck with me for some reason. Yeah, syncopation and blast beats are cool, and they work well in this song to give it contrast, but those "choruses" just get my fist pumping like nothing else I've yet to find.

I might as well mention that a black metal cover of Hell's Bells would definitely fit the bill. Just imagine that first riff tremolo picked:

Related to Behexen, is Sargeist (they're also the two highest for each band's similar band votes): http://youtu.be/ueT33HhBB_o?t=48s
I know Sargeist has lots more, but this one is my favourite

I'm admittedly not an enormous fan of Darkthrone, but you can never go wrong with classics (You can hear some of that rock vibe in this one): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c-222tBBEE

Perhaps Rotting Christ? This whole song is a head-bobber: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCewj2VcYzc

One that's groovy, but still evil sounding is Forgotten Woods https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-Zy-MQqNXw

I know there's a 99.999% chance that you've heard of Venom, if you know who Behexen are, but here you go, just in case. They sound exactly like an evil (-ish) version of AC/DC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4e0VvHZMaTs

But that also means most of the 1st Wave of Black Metal and it's related bands: Bathory, Tormentor, Hellhammer, Possessed, etc.
