121 Crazy On You - Heart Crazy On You - Heart

Nuts. She never seems to play it the same way twice either. First time I got a finger blister in years. Day 3 and I'm only 2 bars in...

The acoustic/classical intro is INSANE! I've had the hardest time getting the hang of it! the riff itself isn't very hard...but that intro...PHEW!

122 Riff Raff - AC/DC Riff Raff - AC/DC

Try to play this whole song!

123 Make Total Destroy - Periphery Make Total Destroy - Periphery

The rhythms are absolutely insane - syncopated to the max. You use all 24 frets and its got slapping and tapping in it. It makes all the other songs here look oh so easy. Its prog metal, they can really play. Resemblence of meshuggah, Dream Theater, Veil of Maya and Sikth :) its real music.

The only song I think is harder than this is Zyglrox. I don't know what was in the head of Misha when he compossed this

124 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles feat. Eric Clapton

AMAZING SOLO very emotional.

Found this hard at first

125 Poison Was the Cure - Megadeth Poison Was the Cure - Megadeth

The riff is so shred crazy, even slowed down it is hard

"Megadeth riffs are like other bands' solos"

126 Mouth for War - Pantera Mouth for War - Pantera
127 Black Dog - Led Zeppelin Black Dog - Led Zeppelin

I played this song and the timing on this song is possibly the most weird, thing I've seen it took me years to figure it out.

It changes Time multiple times (no pun intended) throughout the RIFF. Oh, and also the solo

The riff isn't hard, but the thing the kills me is the solo

Awesome, difficult turn around

128 Black Widow of la Porte - John 5 Black Widow of la Porte - John 5

Just an impossible song. Why is this so far back?

129 Paranoid Android - Radiohead Paranoid Android - Radiohead V 1 Comment
130 Metropolis Pt. 1 - Dream Theater Metropolis Pt. 1 - Dream Theater

It is CRAZY hard! The synchronized guitar and keyboard parts are so fast and hard!

131 Eugene's Trick Bag - Steve Vai Eugene's Trick Bag - Steve Vai

Eugenes trick bag is one of the most technically difficult Eugenes trick bag is one of the hardest songs I have ever come across, its pretty much two minutes of straight shredding and complex arpeggios, it took hours on a metronome to even get close to finishing it

132 Stockholm Syndrome - Muse Stockholm Syndrome - Muse

Maybe not the most difficult, but I like it

133 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica
134 Transcend - Polyphia Transcend - Polyphia

The song is just insane. If you can play it, then congrats!

135 When the Water Breaks - Liquid Tension Experiment When the Water Breaks - Liquid Tension Experiment

Holy crap a song that actually belongs on this list.

136 Girl Afraid - The Smiths Girl Afraid - The Smiths

Literally Impossible, not merely a matter of technique like a lot of the metal songs on this list. Totally original and nowhere near the same as anything you've ever tried to play or will try to play again.

137 Larks Tongues In Aspic (Part 1) - King Crimson
138 The Dark Eternal Night - Dream Theater The Dark Eternal Night - Dream Theater
139 Panic Attack - Dream Theater Panic Attack - Dream Theater
140 Damage, Inc. - Metallica Damage, Inc. - Metallica
