The Top Ten

1 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

"It's only got a good 3 power chords."

I learned it in less then 5 minutes

Easiest song ever!

2 Blitzkrieg Bop - Ramones
3 Brain Stew - Green Day

The first song you should teach anyone learning barre chords.

4 Never Surrender - Skillet
5 Running to the Edge of the World - Marilyn Manson
6 Evanescence - My Immortal
7 Sabotage - Beastie Boys
8 Black Sabbath - Iron Man

Anyone who says this is easy has clearly not heard the entire song. There's a fast solo part which is...intermediate, followed by an ending solo part which is also intermediate level. Not to mention you have 3 different riffs to remember. The first riff may be easy, but the entire song is an intermediate level.

9 Deep Purple - Smoke On the Water

Memorised the riff in 10 minutes - peepsmith

Easy peasy, worlds easiest riff. Probably famous for how easy it is.

The riff is easy, but people clearly haven't heard the entire song.
