Most Overrated Guitar Riffszxm Please don't get mad over this list. I have never created any negative kind of list. This is my first. Overrated is just a thing of opinion. Doesn't mean this has to be actual. It depends upon you. But I think these riffs are overrated. I have also included some guitar riffs that I love madly. Plus overrated doesn't mean its bad.
The Top Ten
Its on top. Cause it has been called one of the greatest guitar riffs. But if you dig some more then you'll find there are greater riffs of Ritchie Blackmore. Its not just me. - zxm
Overrated but not more than You Really Got Me's riff.
Its been called one of the greatest guitar riffs. Yeah its great but I think it is more famous cause its easy. - zxm
Top on many guitar riffs charts. Its not Jimmy Page's best guitar riffs. Maybe his 4 or five. But riffs like Kashmir, Heartbreaker or Communication Breakdown sounds better to me. - zxm
Good but it gets more credit. I think it is so famous cause it has been stated one of the earliest hard rock guitar riffs. - zxm
Its not Billie's best guitar riff. (at least not for me). Riffs like Holiday, Whatsername, when I come around are much better. - zxm
Its not very overrated. But a lot of people confuse this riff between the solo. Says "the solo is rip off". While a lot of people vote this song thinking it's the solo.
But anyway, I added it mainly cause it has some rip off parts.Thought they won the lawsuit. - zxm
I like Back In Black or Highway to Hell but this is quite overrated to be in top 20. - zxm
This riff is credited to Kirk Hammett. But anyway, I think Master of Puppets is way much better than this. - zxm
Snow (Hey You) is much better. Although this sounds good too. - zxm
Heart Shaped Box is better - Userguy44
Not on top cause I personally don't think its overrated. But people say its very overrated to be on top. That's why I had to add it. - zxm
The so called "circular riff" is a ripoff of Eric Clapton from Cream's "Badge".
