OK so Chuck Berry's Johnny B. Goode is the best guitar song ever. Why is that?
I fully agree with you. With every song they gave a brief history lesson on how the song evolved but no reasoning to why it's so high. And if they did give a reason it was always something like "It set the standard for future artists" or "It's the most recognizable riff within the genre" type stuff. I too would like to know why the songs were choosen and why so high.

Um, it's NOT ahead of Brown Sugar, it's the highest Stones song. And I have to disagree, Can't You Hear Me Knocking really is a better riff, I really don't care for the Brown Sugar riff at all, it sounds dull to me, and Start Me Up is a better take on the same riff anyway.

No Satisfaction though, thats really dumb, not to mention a shock, didn't they list it as like the second greatest song of all time? Real inconsistant of you Rolling Stone.

And The Stooges song should be No Fun or TV Eye
Down on the Street?

But I'm not a real Stooges fan. Fun House is good, but c'mon, not my idea of a great guitar bad, they had a few cool dumb riffs, though with observation most of them sound the same. And Ron Asheton is one of the worst soloists I have ever heard.

I was actually referring to your comment when you said 7 nation army had talent in the guitar area. That's why I quoted you.

Truth is, I can play the song with my tongue. I will send you a 50 dollar guitar and tabs, it will take you 20 minutes. If it is the top 25 guitar song of all time, I am quiting college and starting a band.

Catchiest riff. Yes. Great song. Definately. THe 21 greatest guitar song of all time. Please, don't kid yourself.

I can play it too.
Like i've said it should be lower, but it's still deserving of being mentioned. It's a bloody awesome song with a guitar as the main instrument so why the hell not?

If you can play that and you can't write eqaully good songs, put down the instrument.

You clearly have a backward philosophy.
