Top 10 Rock Songs of the 21st Century with the Greatest Guitar Solos
This song deserves to be here. Synyster is undoubtedly the greatest guitarist of the 21st century.
My favorite band, Avenged Sevenfold!
They're the real music.
One of the best songs in the 21st century and with the best solo guitarist in the decade and top 20 of all time. People, all those who say that Avenged Sevenfold or Linkin Park is a better band than Alter Bridge are wrong. Just because of their fans and fame doesn't mean they are better. Be realistic, listen to the songs and albums they have. Don't be silly. Their vocalist and solo guitarist are unbelievable. Trust me, I won't let you down.
Amazing solo, where it builds up into an insane heavy section. Not to mention, this is one of the greatest modern epics in rock music, certainly Alter Bridge's magnum opus!
What a song! This should have been first. Excellent solo, also. The overall song is amazing, just like songs from the band RED.
Two amazing solos: fast and technical.
Awesome twin lead guitars, harmonies. Fast, long, and melodic solo.
This is, without question, the greatest guitar solo in the entire genre of Melodic Death Metal, a genre known for its combination of melodic and technical guitar work. The fact that it blows every other song out of the water is a testament to the masterpiece that is Winter Madness.
I really don't get why Synyster Gates is at the top of every list. His solos may sound cool to someone who doesn't really play guitar, but they're really nothing special. Jari Mäenpää, on the other hand, is a guitar wizard...
Great stuff. Sounding arrhythmic the first time, often revolting against the simple four-four time almost all bands subdue themselves to. However, that's just an additional indicator for its unconventional beauty. Definitely something different!
Three solos: two short ones in the intro and one regular later (three solos is pretty unusual and unique). Overall, amazing guitar work. Jeff Waters never disappoints.
Metallica is timeless. Gates being first is a joke. I mean, he's good, but...
Really fast, technical, and melodic solo. How fast? Imagine your plane is taking off! The solo is also brilliantly paired with the drums for maximum effect. This drummer is such a gem. His musicality and skills are stunning (Randy Black).
Tom Morello solo, enough said.
This should be under A7X. Dream Theater is super underrated because of their long songs. This song has a long, amazing solo.
Awesome melody with a kick-ass solo and pro lyrics is what makes this song great.
Pretty fast, long, and absolutely gorgeous solo by a new speed metal band, formed in 2006.
