I love Riff Raff by AC/DC. Builds intensity then breaks down into that groovy riff.

The darkness riff, presumably?

Mine is probably Shooter Jennings' "Daddy's Farm."
#23
Whole song. It's mah favorite. The Darkness Riffs are great, though
But the chorus riff or the verse riff > Darkness Riff IMO.

Rock n Roll Hoochie Koo- Rick Derringer
Just got Paid - ZZ Top
Livin Lovin Maid - Led Zeppelin
Black Dog-Led Zeppelin

just to name a few.

The last Bohemian Rhapsody riff. Its placement in the song could not be more perfect, and it really makes you want to fucking rock so hard.

I'm a metalhead and I have the utmost respect for that riff. Changed my guitar playing.

The buildup to the riff in Infected Mushroom's "Becoming Insane" is pretty badass too, for an electronic group.
