not sure of my personal favourite.

and, i bet, in these next few replys "sweet child of mine" is mentioned ...
if so, that song wouldn't be nothing without the bass line

Dammit, by blink-182.

It changed the face of modern guitar music, such a brilliant riff.

It has to be any song by "The Black Keys" - Their songs are full of awsome riffs. If you haven't heard the Black Keys, either shoot yourself, or watch:

Everyone does best solos, wheres the RIFFS!

So in your opinion, what is the best riff ever and by who?
Actually, everyone does best riffs too. This type of thread occurs more than you'd believe.

I laughed pretty hard at that one. Iron Maiden usually has some great riffs, and I like any AC/DC one.

I think that holds more true than you think. Just because it isnt a complex riff doesn't mean it can't change modern guitar, or that it isnt good. First off it sounds good/catchy, I'll give them that. and it came out in what, 95? look at all the songs after that, they start out with an intro, go to a punk verse, and have a harmonized chorus.

Almost any riff off of "Ashes of the Wake" by Lamb of God. And how come no one has mentioned Slayer yet, pretty much any riff from "Reign in Blood" or their other works are pretty much in one word, sex.

i'd say Thunderstruck as it is pretty sweet
With the blood of the ones he loved
Upon his filthy hands
He took a vow, never
Never to sin again.

there are way too many to declare one the best. Dimebag's riffs were insanely awesome of course. I've been listening to alot of Dream Theater lately and i love that first riff in A Change of Seasons.

The opening riff and then the harmonized riff right after it, in Unholy Confessions by Avenged Sevenfold.

90% of Malcom and Angus' riffs tie for the best, but among them, my favorite is Riff Raff, which is also a good one to learn just to improve your fretwork going between chords and riffs.

Iron Man-Black Sabbath
i dont care what anyone says Iron Man's riff is possibly the heaviest riff ever recorded, I think it realy defines (imo) what it means to be heavy metal.
