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.
