I got into a debate over which song has a more recognizable riff, 'Smoke on the Water' or 'Sunshine of Your Love.' We came to no conclusion so you guys can decide. Recognizable means that people who have never heard it start to end can hear the riff and right away say, "Hey I know that song!!!"

Smoke
cuz the beginning of Sunshine can be confused with the very first chord of Cocaine

No I'm not Jesus. I would aspire to be though. I think under circumstances he would let you pay less if you needed to.

who keeps voting for sunshine of your love?????????? come on, smoke on the water wins.

even random drunk guys at shows can play it, one time a random drunk came on the stage and took my guitar and started playing it (at least the intro riff)

deff smoke on the water.

and off topic....does anyone else find themselves changing the radio station every time smoke on the water comes on because they cant stand it for some reason? or is that just me?

i like it. i think that most people have just heard that riff so much they forgot that the actual rest of the song is pretty cool, especially the solo.

SOTW by far, I have come across quite a few people who have never heard of SOFL before.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

sunshine of your love is the better riff, but smoke on the water is more recognizable.
