Usually people want to hear the most brutal, most epic, or most technical. I want you guys to list some of the most fun riffs you can think of (fun to play or just to listen to). Links appreciated.

I submit these:

Polaris Opening riff
Flag in the Ground Also the opening riff


Go!

For fun, I play near anything by Killswitch Engage. I don't know why, but I just find that enjoyable. More specifically I'll jam to "This Is Absolution" for sh*ts 'n gigs.

I love to play Vacuity by Gojira. Extremely simple but fun main riff. You can really headbang to that. (At least I can).

Was gonna say Polaris, but yeah...quite a bit of Crossing the Rubicon is enjoyable

Black Dog intro
That Was Just Your Life (fast riff towards the beginning)
Remenissions by A7X
Sweet Child O' Mine (by far the most fun if you play it correctly)

Symphony of Destruction - Megadeth. The verse riff and chorus riff are both really fun, but simple.

That and B.Y.O.B - SOAD (The intro riff)
#11
"Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath.... from the album Black Sabbath. I'm talking of course about the riff once the song speeds up till the end of the song. Insanely awesome after playing 4 minutes, 30 seconds at 66 bpm then going to 124 bpm for the last minute, 45 seconds.

Dragonforce don't really use riffs. Anyone that actually listens to them knows this.

Superwoman - A Hero A Fake http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxwSmZcPeWg (Intro)

Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHS3qJdxefY (Chorus, especially when you throw in some rhythmic nuances like mutes and such)

Very, very fun riff. I also find Silhouette by Thrice pretty fun.

I found Seek and Destroy the opening riff really fun to play when I first learnt it years ago.

Agreed, especially the faster downpicked part before the solo.

Double Team by Tenacious D. Every time I pick up my acoustic I can't help but play it...

The Verse riff from Veil of Maya by Cynic
Stockholm Syndrome by Muse

Painkiller - Judas Priest

Two fairly simple pedal-note chuggers, both great fun and sound awesome.

When TS said Polaris
I thought of Rust in Peace Polaris
The verse riff of RIP is really cool to play, I think.

EDIT: Now that I think of it, the entire Rust in Piece album have really amazing, fun riffs.

Muse - Plug in Baby


This by far

Quote by StringAssassin
Stockholm Syndrome by Muse


This too.

I'm saying the Knights of Cydonia end riff, the New Born riff (both Muse) and also the Wedding Nails riff (Porcupine Tree)
#36
The little riff in aesthetics of hate before the harmonised riff, its not long or hard to play at all but dam its fun and catchy as hell. Infact that whole song is pretty fun to play...till I get to the solo at least

Also 5 minutes alone is one of my favourites to play

    anything really pentatonic like Deep Purple's Lazy, or Baby Please Don't Go. Also Hazy Shade of Winter by Simon and Garfunkel, which I've been playing every time I touch the guitar for a week
