Who has the best guitar riff of all time?

British radio station BBC2 has asked music fans that very question, giving its web users a long list of 100 songs by 100 artists from which to select the best guitar riff ever recorded.

The BBC's list was chosen by a panel of their presenters and British music journalists, and includes INXS, AC/DC, Jet, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Blur, the Clash and Nirvana.

We thought we'd give Stuff readers the opportunity to argue the case for their favourite guitar riff of all time.

Is it Smells Like Teen Spirit? Whole Lotta Love? Satisfaction? There are so many to choose from, our air guitar fingers get all twitchy just thinking about it.

Tell us, in more than 200 words, what the best guitar riff of all time is. What makes it so great? What impact did it have on your musical development? Was it the band that made it so great or just the genius of a solo player?

Hit the green button to let you opinions flow.
