142 Phantom of the Opera - Iron Maiden Phantom of the Opera - Iron Maiden
143 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden

It's almost haunting and conveys the whole meaning of the song. 2002 Rock in Rio completely showcases the riffs versatility and popularity amongst fans.

144 Mouth for War - Pantera Mouth for War - Pantera
145 You Really Got Me - Van Halen You Really Got Me - Van Halen

The kinks first used this riffs and song

146 Sleep Now In The Fire - Rage Against the Machine Sleep Now In The Fire - Rage Against the Machine
147 El Scorcho - Weezer El Scorcho - Weezer
148 New Born - Muse New Born - Muse

This song is way underappreciated, the piano intro is beautiful, it may not be the best intro or whatever you want to say about it, but it is still beautiful. Then after you get that, Matt just breaks out in this crazy guitar riff, and your mind is just blown. Amazing song.

I gave this song a listen after seeing it in top ten muse songs, watch "newborn live in Glastonbury 04" then vote again, kicks my ass every time

C'mon! This riff is top 10 material! -

150 Down Down - Status Quo Down Down - Status Quo
151 Breaking The Law - Judas Priest Breaking The Law - Judas Priest
152 Stranglehold - Ted Nugent Stranglehold - Ted Nugent

For a pure strong and simply gut grabbing solo-Stranglehold is the BEST ever! And I have heard them all. There is no watered down note, no interference, no cover --just every bit of it clear and perfect and TOUGH! Give that bowhunter his due!

This should be number one NO CONTEST this is the BEST the 89 songs ahead of this one are good but this one stands above the rest

153 Cemetery Gates - Pantera Cemetery Gates - Pantera

This song should be in the top ten. Dimebag poured every bit of his emotion into this song. Honestly, I love A7X but this riff is better than anything they have done in the past three albums.

What? 111?! People, what's wrong with you?

The best of dimebagg darell althought R.I. P but it is one of the best pantera songs and a great riff to begin with with a great solo nothing can match it its heavenly

154 Cult of Personality - Living Colour Cult of Personality - Living Colour

A crazy non-stop one minute solo, the solo of personality.

155 Yellow Ledbetter - Pearl Jam Yellow Ledbetter - Pearl Jam

'cause this band is everything and its music is incredibly amazing. Although many people may think it's nothing much, but this band made a significant influence on rock music. Thank you, Pearl Jam
