What is the most memorable guitar riff of all time? For me, it's got to be one of these songs:

Breaking the Law - Judas Priest
Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
Iron Man - Black Sabbath
Paranoid - Black Sabbath
Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
Enter Sandman - Metallica
The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden
Aqualung - Jethro Tull
Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Back in Black - AC/DC

Post your opinion and I can add them up here... maybe this will turn into a debate! :D

My personal favourites that I can think of from the top of my head:
At The Drive-In - One Armed Scissor
Derek and the Dominos - Bell Bottom Blues
King Crimson - 21st Century Schizoid Man
The Velvet Underground - Run Run Run (Most riffs by TVU are pretty awesome)

Most memorable of all time: The Beatles - While My Guitar Gently Weeps; Deep Purple - Smoke On The Water.

Great thread!

High Hopes has a guitar riff? Isn't it mostly piano?

My favorite would probably be Rock and Roll (http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1026636/led_zeppelin_rock_and_roll_intro_riff/) or Black Dog (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9i2fqxSjTI) by Led Zeppelin. Then again, there's SWLABR (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngIxuGOVGeQ) by Cream... Starstruck (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idVq7ahGuoM&feature=fvw) by Rainbow, Machine Gun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USbJ4pfHmfg) by Hendrix.

I'd also throw in all the riffs from the suite 2112 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDjx6aM-7VM) by Rush. That's like a collection of the hottest riffs I've ever heard.

Lol, yes you're right. I was mainly thinking of the guitar solo at the end of the song.

I suppose I should pick something else. :embarrass Dream Theater material has some really great ones. Hell's Kitchen, Lines in the Sand, Trail of Tears all have some great melodic riff's.

Boston - Smokin'
Iron Maiden - The Wicker Man
Led Zeppelin - Heartbreaker
Megadeth - Tornado of Souls
Pink Floyd - Interstellar Overdrive
Sonic Youth - Teen Age Riot

If you're talking about the most recognized by people then I have to say Smoke on the Water or Crazy Train.

My most memorable riffs are:

Sweet Child O' Mine - GnR
The Trooper - Iron Maiden
La Grange - ZZ Top
I Don't Wanna Stop - Ozzy


These are just the ones I thought of off the top of my head and hadn't been mentioned yet, except Sweet Child O' Mine. Otherwise I agree with most of the songs already mentioned.

Deep Purple - Smoke On The Water.

omg, I wanna shoot myself. I can't believe I forgot that one. >_<

I'd also throw in all the riffs from the suite 2112 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDjx6aM-7VM) by Rush.

Duuuude. Rush is amazing, and probably is the best thing that had spawned out of Canada. :P My choice from Rush probably has to be YYZ.


Boston - Smokin'


Smokin' definitely has a fun riff. I still like More Than A Feeling, even though that seems more like vocal song.


The Trooper - Iron Maiden

It was actually hard for me to pick an Iron Maiden song, but I will agree with you on this one too. Run To The Hills comes pretty close as well.

I'd have to say the riff from She's a Genius, by Jet. That is an amazing song, so long as you steer away from the video clip. That's weird. While I'm at it, Jet's Are You Gonna Be My Girl has a pretty epic riff, too.

Just my opinion, the songs not crossed out = WIN.
AND HOW COULD YOU NOT INCLUDE FREE BIRD?!
That is one of the best Lynyrd Skynyrd songs EVA.

Some of mine might not appeal to you guys but:

*Obscure - Dir En Grey
*What's up people?! - Maximum The Hormone
*Baba O'Riley - The Who ((I know it isn't a guitar opening, but I DON'T CARE))
* Ruin - Lamb Of God
*Laid To Rest - Lamb Of God
*Pathetic - Lamb Of God

Told you some of them you might not like! XD

Because no one said it yet. Hurrr.... </concert joke>


*Baba O'Riley - The Who
Ah, I should have included something from The Who, I think I pick Won't Get Fooled Again.

* Ruin - Lamb Of God
*Laid To Rest - Lamb Of God
*Pathetic - Lamb Of God

You deserve an e-cookie for mentioning Lamb of God. I love Laid to Rest. That was the first song they played at one of their concerts and... I went crazy. It was a really good show.

Captain Fabio
October 7th, 2009, 02:56 PM
That is because Lamb Of God are GOD! XD

They are so amazing life it is untrue.
I want to see them again ><'

October 7th, 2009, 03:39 PM
hmm. I'd have to say:

This War is Ours - Escape the Fate

Two Weeks - All That Remains

I have to agree with others about LoG, they are truly epic

Cowbell's Makin' a Comeback - Memphis May Fire

A Prophecy - Asking Alexandria

There's a lot more, but those are some of the memorable ones I like.

Copypasta. I want your opinion.

Well, this depends on your definition of "riff". Wikipedia says that a riff can either be a "short melodic phrase" or a "short rhythmic, melodic, or harmonic figure repeated to form a structural framework." If you mean the first definition, then I could go one for days listing off my favorite licks (don't get me started with Key To The Highway by Derek & The Dominos) but for the sake of concision, I'll list some of my favorite, "second-definition" riffs (the ones that provide the accompaniment for the rest of the song or are repeated a good number of times throughout the track):

The Allman Brothers Band - Don't Want You No More
The Allman Brothers Band - One Way Out (live)
Eric Clapton - Cocaine
Dire Straits - Down To The Waterline
George Thorogood & The Destroyers - Who Do You Love?
Led Zeppelin - How Many More Times (the beginning and ending sections)
Lynyrd Skynyrd - T For Texas (live)
Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Hey Hey My My (Into the Black)
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
The Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter
The Rolling Stones - Brown Sugar (of course...)
Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble - Taxman

Unfortunately, lot of my favorite songs can't be listed here because they don't have an accompanying riff :'( For example, Texas Flood is just an extended guitar solo with a few verses but it wouldn't fit this thread's criteria.
Also, I'm aware that a lot of these tracks are covers but a lot of them have variations of the original riff(s) which I like better.
