I know I'm going to be completely wrong about this, but either:

Stockholm Syndrome - Muse
or
Never Enough - Dream Theater

EDIT: *looks at the respons above me*

... maybe I'm not that far off

A lot of Audioslave stuff actually. Tom Morollo is the man when it comes down to writing memorable riffs.

Stockholm Syndrome FTW!

I'd say maybe Heart in a Cage by the Strokes or something by the awesome Alter Bridge.

I've never really liked the Stockholm Syndrome riff.

The riff to Falling Away With You is ten times better

Creep Doesnt really have a riff just a vers backing and some octaves during the chorus. you just pput it cuz you like the band. plus hardly any of the ones you listed are in the 21st century(2000 and up)
It's edited, all of those are 21st Century Riffs. Best I've heard so far. And what's wrong with being biased towards bands you like?

Duh, ever hear "Killing in the Name"? Best riff of the '90's.
