Wednesday Question: Best Metal Riff?
Put your helmets on, this could get messy. This week we're challenging you to nominate the best metal riffs in history. It's going to be a close race, because great metal songs almost always rest upon a heavy, bone-crushing riff or two. There's so much choice out there that it's going to be tough to decide. Of course, democracy rules around here, and the UG voting system should help the best metal riffs rise above and end in a top 10 list to die for. This week's Wednesday question is:

What is the best metal guitar riff of all time?

We're going to paste a definition of what a riff is to help guide the debate. If you can offer a better definition of the word "riff", go ahead in the comments. Riff: a short repeated phrase, frequently played over changing chords or used as a background to a solo improvisation. As usual, post one nomination per comment, then upvote other comments that you agree with. Stick to the metal genre for this post - we'll be back with "best riff" polls for other genres in the future. Good luck!
