5 Never Surrender - Skillet UListen to Sample
6 Running to the Edge of the World - Marilyn Manson UListen to Sample
7 Evanescence - My Immortal UListen to Sample
8 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.

This should really be number one - Gruunge

UListen to Sample
9 Sabotage - Beastie Boys UListen to Sample
10 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.
