There is no such thing as the best riff ever, I agree. Its all about personal preferance.

A great song to one person could be trash to another, and vice-verca.

the point of music is to find something you like, thats why there is so many different genres.

But in all honesty, at the end of the day, we all know who the best guitar riff'er is.

Jimmy Paige. My hero.

Suicidal Tendencies - You Can't Bring Me Down

Honorable mention for best lyric: "Who you callin' crazy? You wouldn't know crazy if Charles Manson was eatin' Fruit Loops on your front porch!"

Love the lead-lines in this one too.






Days of the New - Touch, Peel, and Stand (easy riff to play too)






Audioslave - Be Yourself (not really a riff, per se, but still a great melody and song)




Some more Morello...


Rage Against the Machine - Know Your Enemy




That's enough for now.... just what's on today's playlist (thought I'd share)
