Software provider Muse asked 1,500 people to name the greatest guitar riffs of all time.

The top five greatest guitar riffs were, according to the poll:

1. Guns n' Roses' "Sweet Child o' Mine"

2. Survivor's "The Eye of The Tiger"

3. Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust"

4. Kings of Leon's "Sex on Fire"

4. Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven"

Loudwire points out some issues with these top five greatest guitar riff picks. First, "Another One Bites The Dust" by Queen is so memorable because of a bass line, not a guitar riff.

The website also takes issue with the fact that Survivor's "Eye of The Tiger" is so high on the list while Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" didn't even make the list of 30 songs.
