I have a habit for falling in love with any song that has BIG RIFFS. And by BIG I mean something that sounds so powerful/BIG you feel like it could blow you away.

#1 for me is New Born - Muse (Live version only):

#2 Citizen Erased - Muse (Ok so I'm a bit of a Muse freak):

Killing Floor - Jimi Hendrix live at Monterey Pop
I personally think the whole live show of Monterey pop was Hendrix's finest. His playing was on top, his tone was on top, and it's just amazing to watch him play.

Run Like Hell
Who can possibly ever forget Pink Floyd? Musical geniuses.

Lateralus - Tool
Awesome song. Awesome band. I've yet to find a song I didn't like from Tool.

Ten Speed (Of God's Blood and Burial) - Coheed and Cambria
Again, awesome band, awesome music. I love all their songs.

Zap! - Eric Johnson live from ACL '88
Personal favorite, highly influenced by him.

That's my list. Props to the guy who posted Vicarious, I was going to post it but saw you posted it before me.

Stone temple pilots have a bunch of huge sounding riffs

Down
Wicked Garden
Dead and Bloated
Sex Type Thing
Pruno
Crackerman
Sin
Piece of Pie
where the river goes
big empty
creep

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHmsLUwnfi8&feature=related where the river goes

im not gonna post a whole bunch of links, but these two one sticks out in my mind amongst the others, it has a slow instrumental intro but than it picks up at 1:22 and its sick

"Right in Two" the riff at 5:23 right? in my opinion its the single heaviest thing tool does. the build up is damn near agonizing!

there's too many to list, but the first thing that came to mind was the intro riff to Dream Theater's In The Name of God. Equally as good on that album is the 2nd half of the verse riff in Honor Thy Father.
