Well as far as guitar riffs go there are so many good ones out there but the most haunting for me has to be Bijou by Queen off the album Innuendo, I think knowing that it was written about Freddie and his illness makes it more so...

Anyway... what is the most haunting riff you know of, post them here!

Johnny wishes he was famous
spends his time alone in the basement
with Lennon and Cobain and
a guitar and a stereo.

Arcarsenal - the slight lead riff in the intro - ATDI (it's all I can think of at the moment)

The song Amanecer by L.A. Guns is pretty haunty, it's instrumental. There's no real riffs in it, but the chords mixed with the lead, or the chords on their own, it's all pretty haunty.

If Hendrix, Clapton and Page were to jam, the most impressive guitarist playing would be Paul Gilbert.

I think they use Botch guitars tuned to drop Botch.

"Roulette Dares (The Haunt of)"... oh, you .

My List:
Coheed 'n' Cambria: Verse riff for Apollo I and II (same thing)
Coheed 'n' Cambria: Al The Killer
Coheed again: Second Stage Turbine Blade
The Mars Volta: Cassandra Geminni: The "25 wives in the lake tonight" part. It's not a "riff" per se, but it's damn creepy.
Muse: Space Dementia intro, or whatever Rachmininoffnoffnoff peice it's based upon.
A Perfect Circle: Weak and Powerless

And whoever said Screenager by Muse, that too.
