it seems like they picked the bands before the songs, and then chose the songs based on popularity. like they just pulled up itunes and looked at the song rankings.

Never thought about it like that, but yeah that sounds about right... nailed it

I never understood the seven nation army thing. That riff sucks, and it's pretty easy to make your guitar sound somewhat like a bass.

Eh...it's cool they made the list at all...but I generally don't pay any serious consideration to anything RS lists off.

Let's face it, the RS lists are always gonna be mainstream centric. And like barn said, we are lucky sonic are there at all.

yeah alot of those older cheap guitars (i.e. Airline or whatever jack white has) have such low string tension that they already sound very plunky/bassy on the clean channel ... plus when you have a whammy pedal it's nothing. The riff is dece though, it's no 'Stars and Sons', but it'll do under the category of "Riffs I cant' believe have not been written yet"

For some reason, that riff does sound really familiar to me, like it had been written before.

I wonder how many people write a decent riff and then find out years later that someone else wrote it as well? My friend played a riff one time and I said "that sounds almost identical to the riff in channel changer by Polvo..." and he listened to the song and -- besides their alternate tunings -- it was identical. Weird.
