While this is ok for most songs, it doesn't excuse the absence of "One."

wertsie and Always - I don't mean to butt into your conversation too much but when I first heard the song Always I could barely believe my ears. The lyrics to that song really hit home for me. I guess you know what I voted for in the Beautiful Day vs. Always poll.

I will follow. I know it's not on the list but that's gotta be the best "riff".

Hmmm...Edge's 'crying' riff in the middle of Kite (just before Bono sings "I'm a maaaaaan.....") gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it...still does

There was no IN GODS COUNTRY!!!! I have always thought that is the best riff except that it is not long enough, but I went with EBTTRT but HMTMKMKM also sounds cool too

riffs??

I don't think many of the songs listed have distinct "riffs". But this was part of the disclaimer

Anyway, as far as actual riffs go, Discoteque is far and away the top song. I remember a review of POP back in 97, saying how bad it was of course, really ripping on Discoteque and then the reviewer said "but if you listen at (some certain minute and second) of the song, you will hear one of the greatest rock guitar riffs of all time"

I agree!

I am surprised to see Pride so low.I can imagine the song is tiring, but the album version has the watermark U2 riff. Its one of the most original piece of music and If I have to chose one piece of music to define music I would pick that.Original, passionate and full of energy.
