123 Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
124 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
125 Misirlou - Dick Dale Misirlou - Dick Dale

Just listen... It is amazing

126 Eruption - Van Halen Eruption - Van Halen
127 Coming Home - Avenged Sevenfold Coming Home - Avenged Sevenfold
128 I'm Free - Kenny Loggins
129 Wake Up - Rage Against the Machine Wake Up - Rage Against the Machine
130 She Sells Sanctuary - The Cult She Sells Sanctuary - The Cult
131 Mr. Sandman - Chet Atkins Mr. Sandman - Chet Atkins
132 Mechanix - Megadeth Mechanix - Megadeth

Any Megadeth riff, dave mustaine was ranked number one rhythm metal guitarist in guitar one mag. i have no clue why there is no respect to him on this site, it's the overpowering metallica that makes megadeth get ignored when they are equals. Mechanix is the original four horsemen

the fastest riff I ever heard. fits about 100 chords in every second. the master - mustaine. megadeth ftw!

133 Fade to Black - Metallica Fade to Black - Metallica

Truly the greatest guitar riff ever made! If you haven't heard this song, you should definitely do it! Because you will be blown away!

Should definitely be higher, even if the riff itself isn't the best the song more than makes up for it

Great solo, great song, great band! Metallica for life! M/

134 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
135 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

This is without a doubt the most intense and nerve pulling riff ever made, David Gilmore really touched deep fibers, goose bumps all over!

What 126? Jesus. I don't personally think it's the best riff of all time, but it should at least be in the top ten. AT LEAST. Jeez.

137 It's A Long Way To The Top - AC/DC

Such a good guitar riff - mneilan

138 Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughan Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughan

try to find an acoustic version, if not just listen to the song. All these silly songs listed got nothing on SRV's riffs - me145

139 Ace of Spades - Motorhead Ace of Spades - Motorhead

How is this and Come As You Are so low?! And where's Soundgarden?

140 Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton

I love In The Flesh, Over The Hills and Far Away, Whole Lotta Love, Daytripper, Sunshine of Your Love, all that stuff. But I believe this is one of, if not the, greatest love song ever written.
