Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction" Has Best Guitar Riff Ever

  • Print

I grew up loving the guitar, wanting to play the guitar, wanting to be in a band.  I've often talked about the Christmas I got my first guitar, started taking lessons, upgraded to an electric, continued to take lessons only to become a mediocre guitarist.  Alas, I just didn't have that natural talent and ability to really get over the hump and be a semi-great guitar player.  That being said, I am naturally a big fan of great guitar riffs and according to a list at, the guitar riff in "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" by the ROLLING STONES is the best one ever.  Following KEITH RICHARDS's riff, the other licks that make up the top five on the music website are JIMI HENDRIX with "Voodoo Child," BLACK SABBATH's "Iron Man," LED ZEPPELIN's "Heartbreaker" and CHUCK BERRY's "Johnny B. Goode."  Let the debate begin. 

Here's's top 10 best guitar riffs of all time:

1) Rolling Stones -- "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"
2) Jimi Hendrix -- "Voodoo Child"
3) Black Sabbath -- "Iron Man"
4) Led Zeppelin -- "Heartbreaker"
5) Chuck Berry -- "Johnny B. Goode"
6) The Kinks -- "You Really Got Me"
7) Guns 'N Roses -- "Sweet Child o' Mine"
8) AC/DC -- "Back in Black"
9) Dire Straits -- "Money for Nothing"
10) Metallica -- "Enter Sandman"
