Absolutely beautiful song ever written and play! Best solo ever made by slash

3 Back In Black - AC/DC
4 Walk This Way - Aerosmith

17 Rock You Like a Hurricane - Scorpions
18 Black Dog - Led Zeppelin
19 Don't It Make Ya Feel - Headpins
20 Livin' on A Prayer - Bon Jovi

Bon Jovi should be all the way up around number 2 or 3 because also anything can't beat sweet child o mine but Bon Jovi has such beautiful riffs come on they have a passion for guitar I mean its not that fast but fast solos are really not a big thing has long as you play it with heart with a band like Bon Jovi!

21 Judgment Day - Whitesnake
22 Sympathy - Uriah Heep
23 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

Nice but it isn't hard rock! It's grunge. - Metal_Treasure

25 Layla - Derek and the Dominos
26 T.N.T. - AC/DC
27 Photograph - Def Leppard

Cool solo near the end... and kinda versatile if you ask me.
