I was tooling around a couple days ago, just randomly soloing, and came up with this little riff. I know it's from a semi-well known song, but can't figure out for the life of me what song it is. Can anyone here tell me?

I believe it's played in 4/4 time, and the notes are 8ths (I think).

It sounds like the riff from Come Out and Play an octave higher.

Yep, just listened to it and that's where it's from. I never actually looked at the tabs for it though.
