223 Wake Up Dead - Dave Mustaine / Chris Poland

Awesome solo with great riff in the background.
Very moody and technical.
One of best Megadeth's solos.

224 Whole Lotta Love - Jimmy Page

Man I just lost faith in the music industry

225 I Wanna Be Sedated - Johnny Ramone

That one note solo is one of the greatest solos ever. Sarcasm off.

226 Gimme Shelter - Keith Richards

One of the greatest stones song ever should be top 20

227 Dyers Eve - Kirk Hammett

This is the best Kirk solo ever. He plays with such speed and grace at the same time.

228 The Final Countdown - John Norum

This song is basically considered a "One Hit Wonder" to many people, so when songs are past there generation people tend to forget a song like The Final Countdown. Even though it is "forgotten by many", it has one of the greatest and coolest guitar solo's I have ever heard!

229 War - Brad Delson

This was an ultimate solo better than the solo in hardwired. Brad has proved he is not a simple guitarist

One solid hell of a solo! Supereb use of the wah effect! Finally Brad got a chance to prove himself!
