No real order, crossed over a lot into Alterna-Rock and minor incursions into Metal territory. No big deal I hope, Rock is the father of both.

Mine!

1. Anything by Black Sabbath (Tony Iommi all-time greatest riffmaker)

2. Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple

3. Highway to Hell - AC/DC

4. Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin

5. Foxy Lady - Jimi Hendrix

6. Jumping Jack Flash - Rolling Stones

7. Fat-Bottom Girls - Queen

8. Mississippi Queen - Mountain

9. Sunshine of Your Love - Cream

10. Cat Scratch Fever - Ted Nugent

As an honorable mention(cause it's not classic rock), anything on Electric Wizard's Dopethrone album is killer. Those guys know how to make a good riff.
