The 21st Centuries Top Ten Guitar Riffs.

The guitar riff from Muse’s ‘Plug In Baby’ has been named the best guitar riff of the 21st century. As voted by the readers of Rolling-Stone magazine.

The track, released in 2001, was one of two Muse songs included in top-10 of the poll by Total Guitar magazine.

The guitar hook to ‘Slither’ by Velvet Revolver came second, while Avenged Sevenfold’s ‘Afterlife’ came third.

The top-5 was completed by Dream Theater’s ‘The Dark Eternal Night’ and Muse’s ‘Knights Of Cydonia’ at number four and five respectively.

Total Guitar editor Stephen Lawson said: “I think Muse won because Matt Bellamy is a guitar hero for the 21st century.

“He’s genuinely innovative, a real creative type who comes up with unique guitar parts. I’m sure it helps that his riffs are catchy too.”

The list looks as follows.

1. Muse – ‘Plug In Baby’
2. Velvet Revolver – ‘Slither’
3. Avenged Sevenfold – ‘Afterlife’
4. Dream Theater – ‘The Dark Eternal Night’
5. Muse – ‘Knights of Cydonia’
