122 It's A Long Way To The Top - AC/DC

Such a good guitar riff - mneilan

123 Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton

I love In The Flesh, Over The Hills and Far Away, Whole Lotta Love, Daytripper, Sunshine of Your Love, all that stuff. But I believe this is one of, if not the, greatest love song ever written.

124 Message In a Bottle - The Police

Amazing. The unique sound mixed with rock is uncomparible.

125 Phantom of the Opera - Iron Maiden
126 Coming Home - Avenged Sevenfold
127 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

I like that guitar riff partway through. Is almost my favorite one. - Feirceraven

128 Carry On Wayward Son - Kansas

Ta ta ta taa... Ta ta ta taa. ta ta ta ta ta ta ta.. Ta ta..
Maybe now you understand why this should be on number one

129 You Give Love A Bad Name - Bon Jovi

one of the best riffs of richie sambora, the guitarist of bon jovi - ronluna

amazing riff! you can't get it out of your head - richie4life

130 A Passage to Bangkok - Rush
131 Down Down - Status Quo
132 Stranglehold - Ted Nugent

For a pure strong and simply gut grabbing solo-Stranglehold is the BEST ever! And I have heard them all. There is no watered down note, no interference, no cover --just every bit of it clear and perfect and TOUGH! Give that bowhunter his due!

This should be number one NO CONTEST this is the BEST the 89 songs ahead of this one are good but this one stands above the rest

Best guitar riff ever...

It gets no better!

133 New Born - Muse

This song is way underappreciated, the piano intro is beautiful, it may not be the best intro or whatever you want to say about it, but it is still beautiful. Then after you get that, Matt just breaks out in this crazy guitar riff, and your mind is just blown. Amazing song.

I gave this song a listen after seeing it in top ten muse songs, watch "newborn live in Glastonbury 04" then vote again, kicks my ass every time

C'mon! This riff is top 10 material! -

This Destroys enter sandman bollocks, bote for this now! ¬¬

134 Cemetery Gates - Pantera

This song should be in the top ten. Dimebag poured every bit of his emotion into this song. Honestly, I love A7X but this riff is better than anything they have done in the past three albums.

What? 111?! People, what's wrong with you?

The best of dimebagg darell althought R.I. P but it is one of the best pantera songs and a great riff to begin with with a great solo nothing can match it its heavenly

135 Paradise City - Guns n' Roses

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!

so good!

136 Cult of Personality - Living Colour

A crazy non-stop one minute solo, the solo of personality.

WHY is this way down here? This is a top 5 all time riff easily.

137 Slither - Velvet Revolver

Another one of Slash's guitar magic - patch32

138 Yellow Ledbetter - Pearl Jam

'cause this band is everything and its music is incredibly amazing. Although many people may think it's nothing much, but this band made a significant influence on rock music. Thank you, Pearl Jam

139 The Hell Song - Sum 41
140 Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Hendrix influenced awesomeness right here.
