Since nobody else has done it I thought I'd bump the thread in the light of Radio 2's recent poll.

 

Here's the top 100 according to their listeners, with about a thirty second snippet of each. The rule was only one riff allowed per artist.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers

 

That will keep me occupied for a while.

That top ten is probably the same as the 'banned riffs' list you find in guitar shops...

I can play Smoke on the Water on the bass. (Not the whole thing, literally the riff :D

Thinking of putting that on my cv.

you need love by the small faces is a song written by Willie Dixon and originally recorded by Muddy waters. Ive got a copy somewhere.

Whole Lotta Love is a rip off of that

One of my all time favourite riffs is the Yarbirds' version of Train Kept A Rollin'. I don't know who did the original but I reckon you might.

 

There is a sort of link between that riff and the top 100 list because Jimmy Page had joined the Yardbirds by the time they reworked the tune for the film Blow Up. Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck, that must have been some twin guitar attack.

You can't knock Lemmy's rock 'n' roll instincts.
