Greatest Rock Guitar Solos of the 21st Century


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Riding The Eagle - Primal Fear

Really fast, technical and melodic solo. How fast? - imagine your plane is taking off!
The solo is also brilliantly paired with the drums for a maximum effect. This drummer is such a gem - his musicality and skills are stunning (Randy Black). - Metal_Treasure

22 Constant Motion - Dream Theater

This should be under a7x dream theater is super underrated because their long songs this song has a long amazing solo

23 Doesn't Remind Me - Audioslave

Tom Morello Solo, enough Said

24 Tear Away - Drowning Pool
25 Dracula - Iced Earth
26 Frontiers - Omnium Gatherum
27 Invincible - Muse
28 Anastasia - Slash

Unbelievable! The solo is the best guitar piece I've heard in recent years. I think slash's new material is quite unknown and underrated, it is easily equal in greatness to Guns n' Roses and every classic/hard rock fan should give a listen. For the song anastasia, just give the song 1 minute, and if you're a guitarist yourself I can guarantee you'll want to learn it after one minute of the song! Iii: )'

In this song slash have good solo

29 The Great Pandemonium - Kamelot
30 Get Fisted - Skull Fist

Pretty fast, long and absulutely gorgeous solo by a new speed metal band, formed in 2006. - Metal_Treasure

31 The Glass Prison - Dream Theater
32 Plug In Baby - Muse

How is this not top ten? It's INCREDIBLE. Full of energy, this is one of the classic Muse songs that just feature one of the best arpeggiated guitar solos EVER, just simply fantastic, could listen to this forever

It has the best riff

33 Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce

Yeah, if you like tasteless garbage

34 Dethrone Tyranny - Gamma Ray
35 A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation - Trivium
36 Bitter Taste - Three Days Grace
37 Sudden Death - Megadeth

Intro solo is so awesome.
It's fast, technical and moody.
Best Megadeth solo since "Tornado Of Souls".
I think that is best guitar solo in 21 st century.
But in my opinion Disturbed's "Stricken" is also Great.

38 Awakenings - Symphony X
39 Kissing the Shadows - Children of Bodom

Best band I've heard in a long time

40 Supernova - Dragonland
