I want to know what you guys think are the most famous/favourite classic rock riffs?

My favourite would be the riff in "I feel fine" right now , I just can't stop playing it!

my fave is the verse riff in Zep's "Whole Lotta Love." It was the first song I learned on my Strat ^-^

"I Won't back down" by Tom Petty is a pretty cool riff but my favorite would be "End of the line" by Travling Wilburys
HARE KRISHNA!

One of my favorite riffs is the one from Had to Cry Today-Blind Faith, also the crash chord riff from Baba O'Reilly (Teenage Wasteland)-The Who, you can't deny that that was powerful.

I believe Walk This Way contains both one of the most famous guitar riffs and one of the most famous drum riffs. It was also kind of the first big rap song.


It was also kind of one of the first big rap songs?
