181 Rock Bottom - Michael Schenker

Go listen to the Strangers In The Night version if you don't like the Phenomenon version (for some stupid reason)

182 Pennyroyal Tea - Kurt Cobain

185 Shine On You Crazy Diamond - David Gilmour
186 Goodbye Stranger - Roger Hodgson
187 Seven - Muhammed Suicmez
188 Unforgiven III - Kirk Hammett
189 Live Forever - Noel Gallagher

This guitar solo really soars, not many other solos give you the sensation of flight like this one does.

190 Tom Morello & Bruce Springsteen - The Ghost of Tom Joad

Even better when seen live.

196 Into the Night - Santana

This is a favorite of mine... If you've never heard it listen to it you'll be blown away

Incredible solo...should be way higher

197 Firth Of Fifth - Genesis

I am surprised that this piece of guitar art was not on the list until now. The solo was co-written by Gabriel, Banks and master guitarist Steve Hackett and is played at various points througout the song but the best moment by far is when Steve Hackett starts building the solo.

Perhaps Progressive Rock has no place in this list? I tend to disagree. Feel free to YouTube for this song, it is magnificent. Just play it very very loud...

Such long and amazing solo

198 Wanderlust - Dave Mustaine
199 Hitch a Ride - Tom Scholz

Most underrated solo ever.

200 Ball and Biscuit - Jack White
