The little shreds that Marty does is just amazing and really melodic. I'm really surprised that this solo was not on the list

25 Return to Hangar Return to Hangar
26 Good Mourning / Black Friday - Chris Poland

It's a no brainier Polands solos cannot be duplicated even Marty has trouble with them live go watch yourself

27 Burnt Ice Burnt Ice

The second part is madness! These solos are wonderful!

28 Dialectic Chaos Dialectic Chaos

Chris Broderick is the stand out star on this song - Sabbath

29 Peace Sells Peace Sells
30 Blackmail the Universe Blackmail the Universe

Something about the last part of the solo, the tapping part, just makes the song feel so intense and awesome. Underrated solo in my opinion

33 Wake Up Dead - Chris Poland

This one immediately follows Dave's second solo. It's only a couple seconds long, but Poland plays the absolute best notes anyone could have played at that time! It starts off with an awesome fast run and then some godlike bends. It's easy to miss but if you listen for it it's genius.

34 Shadow of Deth Shadow of Deth
35 Go to Hell Go to Hell

Highly underrated guitar solo. - Gofannon

36 Washington Is Next Washington Is Next

Come on guys, have we forgotten about that start of the solo that Mustaine does?! That damn harmony solo?! PROOF OF WHY HE IS THE NUMBER ONE BEST IN HISTORY!

37 Post-American World Post-American World

Unbelievable Energy. Rhythm section adds an extra layer of pure awesome. The actual solo is so blistering and genius. No. 1 solo in my book.

38 Angry Again Angry Again

I'm absolutely in love with this solo. Many of this solos are great but you can tell they are too "random" or improvised. The feel you get from this solo, however, is unique.

39 Hook In Mouth Hook In Mouth

I can't believe this wasn't on here. It starts with Chris doing this crazy "Flight of the Bumblebee" esque solo leading into Dave's wicked tap solo that sounds like a demented church organ being violated by the devil. They knew this solo was genius because they do the thing twice and the second time's even better!
