    All of the recent Mayberry guitar/guitarist threads have made me think of a simpler time in music; when three power chords and flannel ruled the airwaves. So Mayberry, what was some of your favorite90s riffs? Not necessarily the songs but the catchy riffs, solos or anything that you played or attempted to play on the guitar

    Examples...

    Everclear; Santa Monica
    Green Day; most anything on Dookie
    Blink 182; Dammit
    7 Mary 3; Cumbersome
    Toadies; Possum Kingdom

    Yeah, normally I have little patience for genre police, but I don't think there's much of anything "grunge" about those two bands.

    Pearl Jam - anything on Ten or Vs.

    Yeah, yeah. I lumped them in there with grunge. Both were played on the "alternative" stations around here with the grunge bands. I can change the title I guess but both of those bands had catchy 90s riffs.

    EXCELLANT CALL! I guess there most well known would be The Day I Tried to Live (or the one I tried to dupilcate the most when I played)

    They aren't really grunge but anything off of TOOL's Undertow and AEnima. Great music and the riffs are fun to play on guitar.

    Keep em coming. Man in the Box is a no brainer. Heart Shape Box is good too. I was more a fan of Rape Me and Teen Spirit. STP had some good ones too. Vasoline had a pretty catchy opening riff...

    Nirvana - All Apologies, Smells Like Teen Spirit
    Pearl Jam - Yellow Leadbetter (wow, such intro)
    Weezer - Sweater Song, Say It Ain't So

    And even though it's not so much about the riff, The Day I Tried To Live by Soundgarden is one of the best vocal performances I've ever heard in a rock song to this day.

    "Good Enough" - Mudhoney


    Might as well add "Interstate Love Song" - STP for good measure as well

    I was never really a Manson fan but Beautiful People had a great hook. I cant believe I didnt think of Bulls on Parade though since your mentioned Rage. Killing is another good one too...

    You're lucky you changed the title.

    I had my flame gloves on.
