    I love that song. I love it how it feels like you're being whacked on the head repeatedly by it. I really love it.

    I had a friend in High School who lived in a small wooden house. I'd go around to his house and he'd bring out his Sabbath collection. He'd turn it right up to 10 and the whole house would shake. It was glorious. His Mum would come in with snacks, she was so used to it. He moved on to V8 engines. Black Sabbath and V8 chevy engines in old beaten up Holdens.

    Why are loud things so great?

    Van Halen - Aint Talking Bout Love
    Corrosion of Conformity - Clean My Wounds
    CKY - 98 Quite Bitter Beings
    Nirvana - Lithium
    Black Sabbath - Iron Man

    Hard to say. I like all kinds of music from every time period. Rhythm guitar is what I play.

    Do they have to be guitar riffs?

    Faves right now:
    Anything by the Jimi Hendrix Experience
    King Crimson - 21st Century Schizoid Man (sax/etc. riff)
    Ben Folds - Zak and Sara (piano riff)
    Tool - The Grudge (bass riff)
    Yes - Roundabout (bass riff)
    Bloc Party - Banquet

    And I dunno if this counts as rock but...
    Southern Culture on the Skids - Camel Walk

    Shimmy! I LOVE the Everlong riff!!

    a few favorites:

    rage against the machine - killing in the name (verse)

    hendrix - foxey lady (intro/verse)

    tool - aenima (intro)

    zeppelin - good times bad times (verse)

    incubus - just a phase (verse is this awesome jazzy swing, I love it)

    metallica - sad but true (main pre-verse part...it grooves much better than their speed metal older shit)

    beatles - something (lead-in to verse)

    the who - pinball wizard intro!

    queen - the entire bohemian rhapsody solo is like one big long instantly recognizable riff.

    rush - spirit of the radio (intro)

    van halen - ain't talkin' bout love (intro, it's a shame the rest of this song is painfully bad)

    radiohead - subterranean homesick alien (intro, and also that lead guitar part where greenwood comes in over the lyric "I tell all my friends but they'll never believe me"

    weezer - that little 9-note lead melody about 3 seconds long in the bridge of "buddy holly" going back into the last chorus

    system of a down - question! (verse riff is terrific, so is melody and prechorus harmonies are GORGEOUS)

    smashing pumpkins - drown. I am in love with that riff.

    MODEST MOUSE - THE STARS ARE PROJECTORS, GO LISTEN TO THIS SONG RIGHT NOW:

    [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjjixLqGyFE"]Modest Mouse - The Stars Are Projectors[/YOUTUBE]
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Oh, and I forgot to mention Baba O'Reily! That's a big one.
