    Favorite Van Halen Riff/Song. ONLY ONE

    Tough choices all around but I keep coming back to this. It's just perfect.

    The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No.” ― Alan Moore

    Yankee Rose.

    Really though, probably Cradle Will Rock. EVH's writing style is super clever, and even though a zillion people copied him nobody else quite sounds like he does.

    Ain't talkin' 'bout love intro riff. No contest.

    That's my spirit riff. It's like a spirit animal of riffs.

    I mean, that's PROBABLY the best one or maybe neck-and-neck with my favorite but I gotta give the nod to 'Mean Street'. It's all the awesome EVH shit, the crazy "how does he do that" solo intro, the bouncy guitar riff, the rhythm/lead with no second guitar, etc.



    My personal favorite guitar player by a mile.

    EDIT: Dave beat me to it
