UK mag Total Guitar’s top 50 riffs of the decade


UK guitar magazine Total Guitar’s latest issue celebrates the “greatest guitar riffs” of the last 10 years. I haven’t bought the magazine but the list of top 10 riffs have been released online.

Of those 10 songs, I only know The White Stripes’s Seven Nation Army and Velvet Revolver’s Slither. To my classic rock tuned ears, Seven Nation Army at least has a muscular and memorable riff; can’t say the same for Slither. And I haven’t really listened to any of the songs or albums from the rest of the bands on the top 10 riff list.

  1. Plug in Baby – Muse
  2. Slither – Velvet Revolver
  3. Afterlife – Avenged Sevenfold
  4. The Dark Eternal Night – Dream Theater
  5. Knights of Cydonia – Muse
  6. No One Knows – Queens of the Stone Age
  7. Seven Nation Army – The White Stripes
  8. Halo – Machine Head
  9. Mr Brightside – The Killers
  10. Beast And The Harlot – Avenged Sevenfold

Oh dear. I think I’ve become an old fart …
