Are These The Ten Greatest Guitar Riffs Of All Time?

Deciding the greatest guitar riffs of all time is certainly not an easy task, but this list claims to be THE top ten list, so what riff takes the top spot?

Guitar World and Total Guitar asked their readers to rank the greatest guitar riffs of all time, and according to their people the top 10 riffs are:

10. Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix

9. La Grange by ZZ Top

8. Walk by Pantera

7. Iron Man by Black Sabbath

6. Enter Sandman by Metallica

5. Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love by Van Halen

4. Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple

3. Back In Black by AC/DC

2. Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne (but really Randy Rhoads)

1. Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin

It’s not surprising that Zeppelin would be on there, but is Whole Lotta Love even their best riff? That’s up to you to argue about on the internet.
