Injustice! This is a highly underrated song. Just feel yourself go wild to its amazing tune. It deserves to be in the top 15.
One of the single most recognizable arpegiated riffs of all time. This song became a stadium anthem and it all started with this incredible riff!

Completely underrated riff, solo, lyrics, and song. - VonHaggles
Hallowed Be Thy Name is one of the greatest song in history. And riff is amazing!
Love it, best song on 'Number if the Beast' and I'm an old rocker so I should know!
How can it be on no.97
It should be at least in top 30
Shouldn't be #1, but should definitely be a lot higher than it is
Gotta be up with the top 10... Iconic... Is the root of all evil today.
It's a shame Guns N' Roses is above this epic masterpiece. Best guitar riff ever.
Its not in classical 4/4 time signature. ITs actually in a 7/4 time signature which makes the riff so uniqeV 2 Comments
prolly one of the catchiest riffs ever - wolf10
Priest has some of the best and heaviest guitar riffs of all time and they can't get even one song in the top 10?!
My favorite Riff of all time - christangrant
58? People are idiots
37? Really? Wow people, I don't even know what to say, this is one of the most amazkng riffs ever :(
Everyone loves Eric..he makes satriani and vies list..Van Halen as well, and many more including my rock and roll hall of fame dad.. He loves cliffs of dover. Most guitarists of the 60's listened to my dad's band and they still have the record for most albums and for first band inducted with no vocals... Walk, don't run.. And vote for Johnson. And by the way, Jerry says " The Ventures" should be on every list..They taught so, so many people how to play guitar by listening to their records...name a hall of famer..they listened to The Ventures.V 1 Comment
Why The Hell is this song all the way down here, it is one of the greatest riffs ever, just listen to the damn song. It is totally unrecognized to the mainstream world! It may not be the most consistent riff but when it comes in at 2:40, you know it is that awesome. Give this riff a chance, plus, the song is just pure genius and ranks with the genius of Bohemian Rhapsody, Stairway, A Day In The Life, etc.
Better than all the riffs up at top10
Just try to make a riff like this one. Easy and so good.
The number of my cat
And I thought Slither was a Metallica song, not... Velvet Revolver. But whatever. I gave this my vote anyway.
