Songs with the Worst Guitar Solos


The Top Ten

1 Lollipop - Lil Wayne

I was surprised when I listened to this song again and heard that it did in fact have a guitar in it. Unfortunately, it is only a guitar riff. Not a solo. Good effort though. The guitar definitely sounded like it didn't belong in the song. - Rpemk

2 I Wanna Be Sedated - Ramones

Awesome song but the solo... - christangrant

3 Suicide Blonde - INXS
4 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

All the Nirvana solos on this list aren't bad, just extremely overrated. - Gruunge

5 Come as You Are - Nirvana
6 Blew - Nirvana
7 Summertime Blues - Blue Cheer
8 Paper Lanterns - Green Day
9 No Rain - Blind Melon
10 Faithfully - Journey

The Contenders

11 Wango Tango - Ted Nugent
12 The Wanton Song - Led Zeppelin

No led zeppelin solo is bad. also the riff is amazing

13 Heart-Shaped Box - Nirvana
14 Burnnn! - Pantera Burnnn! - Pantera

I disagree - I think this is a very good solo. - Metal_Treasure

15 Looks that Kill - Mötley Crüe
16 Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit
17 (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!) - Beastie Boys

This solo sounds really cheesy, like teenage cover band cheesy. It does fit the original purpose of the song, which was making fun of attitude themed hard rock songs. - Gg2000

18 We're Not Gonna Take It - Twisted Sister

The whammy bar makes it even more hilarious! I wonder how proud the guitar player was when he finished it. - Gg2000

19 Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande
20 Cinnamon Girl - Neil Young

It's just one note strummed over and over again. It definitely is an iconic solo, but anyone can play it. It's extremely overrated. It's not that bad, but it's certainly not very good. - mmarce445

21 Thirsty and Miserable - Black Flag
