Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love' Voted Best Riff of All Time
Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" was awarded with yet another accolade, as the band's classic 1969 track was voted best riff of all time by BBC Radio 2 listeners.

As BBC reports, the chuggin' guitar piece triumphed over the remaining 99 riffs drawn up by an experts panel consisting of Radio 2 staff, critics and record producers.

Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine" reached the No. 2 spot, while AC/DC rounded up the Big 3 with "Back in Black."

"Smoke on the Water," also known as the recently-proclaimed best starter song for guitarists here on UG, made it to No. 4. Some of the other riffs featured in the Top 10 are "Layla" by Derek and the Dominoes, Status Quo's "Down Down," and Pink Floyd's "Money."

So without further ado, check out the full Top 10 below.
