Yeah, yeah, scary metal men. What all you long hairs are too petrified to admit is that all your rock heroes, jamming 24 hours a day, drinking swimming pools of Jack Daniels, screwing entire fleets of stewardesses, and mainlining the GDP of Columbia straight into their perineum, could not come up with a guitar hook as instant and as deadly - which SPEAKS SO DIRECTLY TO THE WHITE MAN'S SOUL IT MAY AS WELL BE THE VOICE OF GOD - as a novelty song by a bunch of nerds, recorded as a tie-in for what was essentially a cheesy eighties children's film.

You old Hippie Metallers were so busy combing your long hair and smokin' your Peace Pipes that you missed this. http://youtu.be/RQOeK1EuDao

So did everyone else pretty much but I still think they were a great band who like Stiff Little Fingers and others to numerous to mention somehow didn't quite seem to get the success that I certainly felt they deserved.

If we're talking Northern Ireland and teenage riffs, this is hard to beat every time she walks down the street. This is an even better guitar line in my opinion, and the band chipping in DO IT_DO IT backing vocals in their Derry accents gets me every time.

I'm still well into forumer Keef's old band You Already Know - I got told off for playing this on the radio once. Like I ever said the name of the song - ! Some primary riffage there.

Gotta go with Spikes on this one: Pretty Vacant. Mind you some great early Bowie riffs - Rebel Rebel and SLF - gotta get away. Z

Aw, you've made me all nostalgic now! Still chuffed you got us on the radio, pretty sure that was the only time! Cheers!

I go away for a few months and you make a new section on the board? Better kill this thread then...

I'm slightly saddened by there being only one solitary mention of the greatest, and I mean greatest, riff merchants there have ever been. So much to choose from that the thread should really be about their ouvre alone, but what follows is I think is the epitome of what guitar riffs, never mind the entirety of rock music, are all about. Also includes a nomination for the best solo and best rhythm work, like, ever dudes.

\m/

I'd nominate the whole frickin album, but as a bonus: It's named after a beard!


EDIT: Forgot to add This

Agreed - I think Sabbath's riff catalogue is so massively consistent it's hard to pick a singular one out. Into the Void is definitely a massive contender. Also a nod to the Dio era. Amazing live.

I think 'Thunderkiss '65' deserves a mention for sure. They've got a ton of great riffs but this one is pure gold.

Always been a favourite of mine, though I'd imagine Nigel Farage begs to differ!

Yeah, but what about...

Stone Roses - Driving South
http://youtu.be/YgfQ9G3vi-8

Guns N' Roses - Mr Brownstone
http://youtu.be/9ZcQ5e761AY

or even,

Placebo - Teenage Angst
http://youtu.be/Fx5bfLI5slU
Whatever happened to Rico, Dolman and Cadet Paris? I'm sooo out of the loop.

Appetite For Destruction is stall ball bag bashingly brilliant and one of the defining rock albums of all time.

What a shame Guns N' Roses' decline was so rapid and the music that followed so turgid.
