Question Favorite Riffs to play ?

When you pick up your guitar what are some of your "go to" riffs that you love playing?

My List:

- Chinese Rock- The Ramones
- 3's & 7'S- QOTSA
- Any Zepplin song

Sorry to go off topic, but which member of Orion are you again? I chat with Ryan and I never know if you are him.

OT: The only other riffs I play are my own. Sometimes I jam with Plug In Baby.

EDIT: actually, sometimes I play something similar to Unorthodox Caveman by Sunn.

Plug In Baby is just too much fun. I love to do that riff.
Black Dog is a great lick.
Fat Lip by Sum 41.
Hysteria is another awesome Muse song.

I learned a riff Petrucci wrote and used during the drummer auditions, very heavy and groovy and it's become a go to riff, especially for downtuned, extended range guitars.
