The Top Ten

1 The Guitar Riffs

Definitely the first thing in rock music to notice. It's the base of a song. People tend to notice more of rhythm guitar part than lead guitar part. - zxm

2 The Vocal Performance
3 The Drum Track
4 How Well the Vocals Flows with the Instruments
5 The Production
6 The Guitar Tone

It usually means lead guitar. Both rhythmic riffs and solos. Including some few licks and different techniques. - zxm

7 The Lyrics
8 The Bassline
9 The Bass Riffs

Yes, like Metal_Treasure said, bass riffs are rare. But there are some songs which have prominent bass riffs. Green Grass and High Tides for example. It has a noticeable bass riff, almost covers the whole song. I know a user who liked the bass riffs. - zxm

If I rate about basslines, then I notice more bass solos than bass riffs. But yeah, I have seen people liking bass riffs more than bass solos. Mike Dirnt for example. - zxm

10 The Instrumental Track

The Contenders

11 Composition
12 The Solo

Especially for prog rock/metal etc genres. - zxm

13 The Chorus

I know there are songs without choruses but chorus is a common thing people notice. - zxm
