162Street Spirit - Radiohead
163Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
164Angel of Death - Slayer

This needs to be up there

165The Crossroads - Steve Vai

This is a fairly hard one with lots of sweeping!

166Cult of Personality - Living Colour

The guitar solo is just an all-out assault. A veritable collage of runs, triplets, notes, and sounds. Painful.

167Escape the Fate - The Aftemath
168Third Eye - Tool
169Play With Me - Extreme

This song is harder than any of the songs on here, I'm sorry but half the people that voted on this list do not know what they are talking about, Megadeth songs can be difficult, and so can some Avenged Sevenfold, and Yngwie and Paul Gilbert and Guthrie, everything else ESPECIALLY Through The Fire And Flames, is overrated in terms of difficulty, DragonForce is just fast, not difficult

170Texas Flood - Stevie Ray Vaughan

This solo is amazing... No other way to say it. - bighercules

171Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix
172Since Ive Been Loving You - Led Zeppelin

One of the fastest solos ever, extremely long and multiple time changes, multiple volume levels and using basically every technique in the book make this song crazy difficult

173Money for Nothing - Dire Straits

Simple riff, but playing the studio version to a T is nearly impossible. Plus, the tone is killer.

174The Last One Alive - Demon Hunter

Solo is short but fairly hard

175Brain Damage - I Am Empire

It has a cool solo that looks sorta' difficult.

176Smooth - Santana
177Rock You Like a Hurricane - The Scorpions
178Raining Blood - Slayer
179Speed Kills - Michael Angelo Batio
180Wings of Liberty - Dragonforce

The solos at the beginning and the end are insane and the riffs are just as hard and fast as well. This song should at least be #4
