Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” has been voted the greatest guitar riff of all time. The Jimmy Page lick was voted #1 in a poll by Total Guitar and Guitar World, edging out Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train”. Rounding out the top five were AC/DC’s “Back In Black”, Deep Purple’s “Smoke On The Water”, and Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love”.
What’s your greatest guitar riff of all time? Is that a good top five?
