Most generic riff you've ever heard

Asking Alexandria - The Final Episode. No question for me. Anyone else?

The most generic 'riff' I've ever heard was one that we wrote in the band I was in. I suck at theory but it was just that chord progression in riff form.

Edit: Never mind the one TS posted is worse. Sorry Asking Alexandria. :/

Well I was gonna say everyone of those shitty metalcore songs with pedal riffs in natural minor and crappy one note breakdowns, but uh, you beat me to it.

Agreed, Freddie Mercury was a terrible drummer.

Never listened to that band, even though I guess that's more or less the kind of stuff I listen to. Are they even trying? That song was absolute garbage.

This is really generic, when I first listened to it I thought I had heard it before

Question for the people who listen to this stuff, what genre would you call this? just metalcore?

The first riff in Meshuggah's Demiurge probably fits here. Works well in the context of the otherwise good song though.
