Marquee Moon is my favourite riff. So crazy and loopy, and the way it comes back to the riff after the crazy solos is awesome.

Ooo, I like riffs.

The entirety of Vulgar Display of Power.. but if I had to pick just one, Mouth for War:

The Sword - Freya:

Fu Manchu - Make Them Believe. That opening riff is killer:

QOTSA - You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, But I Feel Like a Millionaire. Starts at 0:45:

Kyuss - Demon Cleaner. So many good Kyuss riffs, this is just one:

Nick Drake - Road. Does this count? The timing fucks me every time:

The Voidz - Pyramid of Bones:

Truckfighters - Desert Cruiser:

RHCP - Nobody Weird Like Me:

Excellent choices! Mouth for War has two huge riffs, both verse and chorus. The Sword and Fu Manchu are both brilliant. I really love the 'We Must Obey' album - this is one of many great riffs on there:

If we're talking Josh Homme, this is probably my pick: Well, today at least.

Heap of stuff here I'm totally unaware of
Good stuff team

Riffers I like:
Cornell Dupree - BB King and Donny Hathaway
Prince - Joy in Repetition, It, I Rock Therefore I am
Tom Morello - Original Fire, Revelations, Bombtrack
Eric Clapton - Pilgrim, love that riff with his high vocal
Bully Duffy - quite a few Cult tunes
Somebody De Leo - Stone Temple Pilots guy.. Tiny Music album

My favourite:

Not the thread for it, but their drummer is fucking excellent. Totally drives all of their best tracks.

Carry On Wayward Son - Kansas
Theres enough riffage in that song to satisfy a hungry guitarist.
