101 La Grange - ZZ Top La Grange - ZZ Top V 1 Comment
102 Madhouse - Anthrax Madhouse - Anthrax
103 Cherub Rock - The Smashing Pumpkins Cherub Rock - The Smashing Pumpkins
104 Bat Out Of Hell - Meat Loaf Bat Out Of Hell - Meat Loaf
105 Tie Your Mother Down - Queen Tie Your Mother Down - Queen

One of the best riffs to ever begin a live show... And one of my favourite rock songs. Brian May has a few great ones to choose from; Queen didn't do a lot in that regard, so the few they did use were smokin.

Best damn riff ever. Can't believe this is the only queen song here. People should start listening to good music

106 Let It Go - Def Leppard

Great but the Switch 625 - definitely Leppard from their 1981 album " High 'n' Dry " one of the best riffs ever.

113 Hotel California - Eagles Hotel California - Eagles

One of the best opening guitar riffs along with "pictures of matchstick men" by status quo & "baby blue" by badfinger

114 Good Riddance - Green Day Good Riddance - Green Day

It's a catchy song not my fave song forever and the riff is easy to remember and is in tune with the song I played this whole song by just making a few changes to the riff and it was like you couldn't even tell the diffrence
