Keef is the riffmaster...where's Satisfaction, Start Me Up, Honkey Tonk Women, Brown Sugar??

And why the F is #16 "Aerosmith with Run DMC"?? What did Run DMC have to do with the riff?
Who voted in this poll?

Even better, what did Clapton have to do with the "Layla" riff? Duane Allman fucking came up with it and played it on the album.

Yeah I agree Thunderstruck should have been there and Nirvana?!?!?! #2?????????? Hell no! They are way overrated! I was talking about that to my fiance last night when they said that the best song in the passed 25 yrs is Smells like Teen Spirit. I don't think so

before I even red Salome's response, I thought to myself, "Highway to Hell has a far better riff than Back in Black. FAAAAR Better."



I want my highwaytohell!

This is a BIG JOKE- Pistols and Daffodils at no 1- what a joke!!!

Sure it is a good riff, but there are soooooooo many more that are better, namely satisfction to begin with and Kurt's power chords for SLTS are bland when compared with other great riffs (I mean, even I can play SLTS!!)

To not have the Rolling Stones in the top ten is an insult- arghhhhhhhh, I just noticed bloody Paradise City in there, come on, I wouldnt take this seriously at all



Motorcycle Emptiness- that is a great riff, in fact MSP have heaps of great riffs in their songs and I would vote that Jane's Addiction's 'Three Days' has one of the best riffs ever in it, for a song of modern times

I like that song, but the riff isn't special or something... I think
