Greatest Rock Guitar Solos of the 21st Century


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Blood Brothers - Iron Maiden Blood Brothers - Iron Maiden
22 Riding The Eagle - Primal Fear Riding The Eagle - Primal Fear

Really fast, technical and melodic solo. How fast? - imagine your plane is taking off!
The solo is also brilliantly paired with the drums for a maximum effect. This drummer is such a gem - his musicality and skills are stunning (Randy Black). - Metal_Treasure

23 Doesn't Remind Me - Audioslave Doesn't Remind Me - Audioslave

Tom Morello Solo, enough Said

24 Invincible - Muse
25 Tear Away - Drowning Pool Tear Away - Drowning Pool
26 Frontiers - Omnium Gatherum Frontiers - Omnium Gatherum
27 Anastasia - Slash Anastasia - Slash

Unbelievable! The solo is the best guitar piece I've heard in recent years. I think slash's new material is quite unknown and underrated, it is easily equal in greatness to Guns n' Roses and every classic/hard rock fan should give a listen. For the song anastasia, just give the song 1 minute, and if you're a guitarist yourself I can guarantee you'll want to learn it after one minute of the song! Iii: )'

In this song slash have good solo

28 The Great Pandemonium - Kamelot
29 The Glass Prison - Dream Theater The Glass Prison - Dream Theater
30 A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation - Trivium A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation - Trivium
31 Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce

Yeah, if you like tasteless garbage

32 Dethrone Tyranny - Gamma Ray Dethrone Tyranny - Gamma Ray
33 Bitter Taste - Three Days Grace Bitter Taste - Three Days Grace
34 Sudden Death - Megadeth Sudden Death - Megadeth

Intro solo is so awesome.
It's fast, technical and moody.
Best Megadeth solo since "Tornado Of Souls".
I think that is best guitar solo in 21 st century.
But in my opinion Disturbed's "Stricken" is also Great.

35 Plug In Baby - Muse Plug In Baby - Muse
36 Awakenings - Symphony X Awakenings - Symphony X
37 Kissing the Shadows - Children of Bodom Kissing the Shadows - Children of Bodom

Best band I've heard in a long time

38 Supernova - Dragonland Supernova - Dragonland
39 44 Minutes - Megadeth 44 Minutes - Megadeth
40 Kick the Chair - Megadeth Kick the Chair - Megadeth
