Top Ten Greatest Guitar RiffsDeathToMayo
The Contenders: Page 15
When I saw the list, I fully expected this to be number one. Clicking on the list and having to scroll to 36 to find it thoroughly disappointed me. Every time I scrolled, I died a bit.
#1 is Smoke on the Water. Even if it is the most 'recognizable', that does NOT mean it's the best. In comparison with a lot of things, it's actually a really bad riff.
#3 is Enter Sandman. The Black Album (not to mention everything after it) sucks.
I don't feel like critiquing every "riff" before Master of Puppets, but here's a hint: ALMOST ALL OF THEM SUCK.
To quote another comment: "You people wouldn't know a riff if the guitar itself slapped you in the face. "
You people wouldn't know a riff if the guitar itself slapped you in the face. This is the best metal riff full stop, such honest metal, Metallica in their prime.
One of the greatest riffs ever! This should be at least in top 5. How the hell is it 35?

One of the best riffs I've ever heard!
A7X rules! they've got two of the best guitarists in the world! - SyNyStErVaLeNtine247
syn's best for me
i like 4.00 this song - juicymetaly
This riff is extremely catchy, with hamers and pull-off... Extremely melodic... And also got the best solo ever along with Cemetary Gates and Floods! A7x rocks and Syn is the best!
Just because Smoke On The Water is the most recognisable riff doesn't mean its the greatest. Smoke On The Water is easy to play but most of A7Xs solos aren't. That's why I say Syn is one of the best in the world - Danielsun182V 1 Comment
Great Riff! Been done by many other groups as well. - Freak_Show1
Can't get it out of my head - Gamenerd78
Metallica is so overrated, the Original by Diamond Head is WAY better - NjakDjak
Turn your radio up when it plays.
