It gets no better.
Whatever happened to Rico, Dolman and Cadet Paris? I'm sooo out of the loop.

That opinion may be related to our mutual love of Nirvana.

Soap and CFM have had the best ones so far, but it occurs to me that the title track to the GREATEST HEAVY METAL ALBUM OF ALL TIME might just have the odd decent riff on it....

Thought so.

Surprised nobody's menitoned Seek and Destroy or Paranoid yet. You can't really go wrong with either of those but I reckon the fewer notes the better.

How few can you take?

We can lock this thread now, right?
Where does a riff end and a groove begin Stevie?
