Apparently they charted in Total Guitar Magazine at 84 and 60 respectively for the top 100 greatest riffs.. Is this true? Yes! I am calling IMDB.com a liar! A LIAR!

Does anyone have a list of the other riffs? I'd think Smoke on the Water would be up there too...not great but certainly damn popular.

If I did it then Tie your mother down would be alot higher and there would be loads of Queen songs in it. But Number one is correct. These should be in the top 50...

Hammer To Fall
CLTCL
Bohemian Rhapsody (rock part)
Stone Cold Crazy
Keep Yourself Alive (They may not know that one though)
and so forth...

IMHO "Sweet Child O'mine" is a good song but faaaar, faaar from being the best riff ever... I can come up with around 100 better licks...
Also NIRVANA's too bloody high...

I'd've thought Crazy Little Thing, We Will Rock You and Keep Yourself Alive would be on there.

Keep Yourself Alive v. Tie Your Mother Down? I think Keep Yourself Alive would eat it alive..because it had little knives and everything.

What is a lick exactly?

Am I the only one who thought that the riff for "Paranoid" sounds freakishly like "Now I'm Here"... except I don't know which song came first.

What does the Internet Movie Database have to do with a rock riffs poll in a guitar magazine?

I looked up Brian and it says

'Two of his riffs were voted into the Total Guitar Magazine poll of the 100 greatest riffs; "Tie Your Mother Down" was 84 and "One Vision" was 60 on the list. [June 2004]'

The more you know.

It also says this for Johns' trademark

'Invented a curious movement: he followed the rhythm kicking quickly on the floor while his body kept the beat leaning forwards'

Thank you for the clarification.

LOL at John's trademark. That's priceless.

I've probably seen it but I don't remember him doing that? Can you see it in the 'Friends Will be Friends' video and the extract of 'FWbF' in TSMGO.

Yeah, you can catch glimpses of John doing it a bunch of times in the Friends Will Be Friends video. That's a weird way that imdb described it though ("kicking quietly" lol). I'd describe it as more of a hen-pecking movement...he's kind of moving back and forth with a curved back like a chicken!

And is it just me, or does the lighting setup in the FWBF video look vaguely similar to the rig in the Hammer to Fall video?

Speaking of Hammer to Fall... the lighting on The Works tour just kicks ASS... I'd love to see a concert from then just to watch the lights!

To generalise I think Queen and it's 310103103013 billion dollar lighting rig kicked bottom..majorly. I can't say I've seen a live performance with a bigger rig..except for that concert on the Sun.

Steve Tyler: Walk this wa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaghhhhhhhhh!

Roger Taylor (watching at home): Fuckin' show off!

Brian: What a BRILLIANT concept for a musical!

'We Will Burn You' opens up in the London Palladium to rave reviews

**News of the World**: While at some times lacks the general vibe of a musical the burning sentiment does get through and plucks a certain heart string that sets the emotions flowing.

Yeah, sorry about that last part...don't know what came over me.

Brighton Rock would never make it. Not well-known enough. Also - now please don't fly off the handle, folks - I know quite a few guitarists and people in general for whom that song is a cure for insomnia.

If I had to pick a Queen riff for that list, it would probably be Stone Cold Crazy. That's a good one.
