Seventies/eighties rock song

by Martijn
(the Netherlands)

I heard this song several times on several classic rock stations while in the US a few days ago. It has this classic up-tempo rock feel, with a male lead singer and background vocals provided by the male bandmembers. Part of the lyrics included a line that went like "this is just what I needed", with the background vocalists immediately repeating this line when the male lead singer finished it. Oh yeah, and I also heard a very short part of this song included in a jingle of one of the classic rock stations, so I assume it is a very well-known song by a US band (but I never heard the song back in Europe)

Hope that someone can help me out!
