For me it would have to be the riff that is at the end of 'The Boys Are Back In Town' by Thin Lizzy

"Sitting on the park bench!" Jethro Tull-Aqualung is the greatest guitar riff ever.

Eminence Front.

^I was just talking with my friend few days ago about this. I said that Freddie wrote whole thing, but he said that Freddie wrote lyrics, notes for the piano, but that Brian wote notes for guitar solo.
