1. Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
2. Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo -- Rick Derringer
3. Life During Wartime - Talking Heads
4. Stone Cold Crazy - Queen
5. Supernaut - Black Sabbath

Could've chosen any number of Iommi's riffs but Supernaut is one of my favorites. I'm sure other folks will add plenty of his to this list.

One of my favorites from Iommi too.

6. Electric Funeral - Black Sabbath

Is the riff in Electric Funeral a heavy metal riff? I doubt it. That riff always sounded quirky to me.

Heavy metal can't be quirky?

Yes.

Tony Iommi plays it. Therefore it is metal.

Facts.

Since that's one of those big hits, I figured I would leave it up to you to put it on the list.

23. Achilles Last Stand -- Led Zep (crushingly obvious, but had to be done)
