Sorry if this has been done before but I am a lazy ass and didn't feel like searching. So what do you guys think are the worst-sounding riffs by good bands? I can't think of any off the top of my head......

Well I don't know about solos but how about that Smoke on the Water riff. It's like...impossible.

Just get it cut a little. It will grow back. Besides why is it so important to look metal? That's just retarded.

Best of Both Worlds - Hannah Montana


In my restless dreams...
I see that town.
Silent Hill.
You promised you'd take me there again someday.
But you never did.

Well, I'm alone there now.
In our 'special place'...
Waiting for you.

I will never understand why people rip on metallica... Personal preference I guess

But either way

I actually like the riff for St. Anger, the the album is ****...

Only thing that comes to mind with me is... WINGER... The Post-solo of Heading For A Heartbreak... It's not a ****ty riff.. I just hate it. I just play along to the song, and then after the solo, I always switch to a different song.. Kind of annoying.

The verse riff to Dig by Incubus really doesn't sound right to me. I love Incubus and I love that song a whole lot but the lead guitar bothers me. It's one of the few songs where I like the lyrics a whole lot better than the music.

Just for the record...probably has been done before, the UG is like that episode of South Park where butters keeps trying to be original and everyone tells him the Simpsons did it...

The UG IS, The Simpsons.

Back on track...I'd say almost every band has some songs where you're just like...wtf?!...can't think of anything specifically right now though...
#12
I'm going to be eaten alive for even suggesting this band is good, and well, if people aren't mature enough, that's their problem. One I hate is "Girl I Know" by Avenged Sevenfold. Most of the time, i can't get enough of their music but that song is like, wtf?
I hate people. Especially black people.

Set the World Afire by Megadeth.

Love the band, the song ain't bad, but in the beginning the riff kinda confuses me....

I enjoy A7X. I don't know a lot of their music but you can't deny that Bat Country is catchy as hell.

I don't know why people don't like them, I guess because of the subculture connotations? I don't even know what genre they are

I agree, but I don't even like that song much. I like all other Incubus songs better. I guess it's just that I get pissed when people hear "Dig" on the radio and they're like "I love Incubus," and they don't own any of their records.

Sounds like my mum, kinda. Owns every album by every band on the radio, and only listens to their singles. Then throws in the next CD.

a7x are in the ever increasing genre called "$hit", bands in this genre include: slayer

Uhm, so much for voicing my opinion you elitist pig. So im an idiot because i don't favor AC/DC?

Also enlighten me on what they have done? I don't remember ever seeing anything but a no talentless singer dying and some fat taxi cab member joining.. The Riffs are nothing special... I can almost guarantee if AC/DC were a new band from today with the same riffs they wouldn't be half of what they are now. I can honestly say they are one of the worse bands I've ever been graced to hear and i've heard a lot of ****ty bands.

They inspired many people to play guitar and made *some* memorable riffs.

I hate the random riff in Raining Blood before the first verse starts (1:07 - 1:22). Its just annoying as hell to me. But the rest of the song is good.
The gun in my mouth was real.
And the taste?

True, but they didn't do anything new, they're more like the poster band for hard rock. Like if somebody had never heard a hard rock song in their life and wanted to know a good place to start AC/DC would be a good pick because they encompass so much of hard rock.

That's an awesome lead line, despite its fairly distinct lack of originality.

Mine would be Zee Deveel and Out from Under by Incubus, I really don't like that song. Also, The Spirit Carries On by Dream Theater should take the cake though, that is a piece of horse****.

Come back when you have grammar, and also, I may not be a huge AC/DC fan or anything, but you can't get off calling Bon Scott talentless.

And the thread is for worst riffs by good bands. If you don't consider AC/DC a good band, then you shouldn't have said anything about any of their riffs, and just said something about a band you like.

One of my least favorite riffs of a good band is The Soft Cell by A Wilhelm Scream
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.
