Top Ten Greatest Guitar Riffs

The Contenders: Page 8XW

141New 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! -

142A Passage to Bangkok - Rush
143Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
144Down Down - Status Quo
145Breaking The Law - Judas Priest
146Stranglehold - 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

147Cemetery 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

148Yellow 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

149The Hell Song - Sum 41
150Cult of Personality - Living Colour

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

151Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Hendrix influenced awesomeness right here.

152Slither - Velvet Revolver

Another one of Slash's guitar magic - patch32

153Hey You - Pink Floyd
154On Every Street - Dire Straits
155Constant Motion - Dream Theater

I am surprised there is no Dream Theater on this list to this point. Petrucci writes some of the coolest riffs of the last 20 years. - fluntimes

If this band had been played as much as Metallica, they would have dominated this list, people don't know how good they are.
