I can think of 2 off the top of my head:

Wasted Union Blues - It's A Beautiful Day
Jeremiah Blues (Part 1) - Sting

And I don't mean "stylistically" I mean they don't use the standard 1,4,5 progression.

Jugband Blues - Pink Floyd. Or, Syd Barrett has what amounts to a breakdown on record before taking leave of the band he was losing control of. Still a difficult listen over 40 years later.

I have a feeling some of you aren't getting what I am trying for here.
Some of those songs use the 1,4,5 progression.

Milk Cow Blues, hilarious! A Robert Johnson song. Why would anyone think that would not be blues?
