    Default Riffs: Volume 1

    A lot of boredom, a little bit (ok, a lot) of beer & here we are, folks. We've had the drum intros threads, which were fun! I figured I'd start up the "guess the riff" thread. Here's the catch, my stupid ass is playing them. First round, I took it easy. 17 riffs & there's no reason anybody on here shouldn't guess at least 13 of them. And yes, I'm fully aware I flubbed a couple of them. Running on fumes, folks! I'm off to bed. I look forward to seeing your guesses tomorrow.

    Where's the English robot lady numbering the riffs for us?!

    I did badly on this, but it's not your fault. They sound familiar, but... ?!?

    Dog Eat Dog (Nugent)
    Lonely Is The Night (Squire)
    Stranglehold (Nugent)
    Peace of Mind (Boston)
    Don't Fear the Reaper (BOC)
    Dance the Night Away (Van Halen)

    The second to last one is driving me nuts. Great idea!

    Damn, most of them sound so familiar...

    The one that begins around the 2:13 mark is Inject the Venom by AC/DC, I believe.

    As I expected, a lot of correct guesses!

    Here's where we're at so far.

    1. Ted Nugent - Dog Eat Dog
    2. UFO - Rock Bottom
    3. Billy Squier - Lonely Is The Night
    4. Scorpions - Sails of Charon
    5. AC/DC - Inject The Venom (didn't think this would be guessed so early, nice!)
    6. Ted Nugent - Stranglehold
    7.
    8.
    9. Journey - Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)
    10. Tesla - Modern Day Cowboy
    11.
    12. Ozzy Osbourne - Killer of Giants
    13. Ozzy Osbourne - Rock & Roll Rebel
    14. Boston - Peace of Mind
    15. Blue Oyster Cult - Don't Fear The Reaper
    16.
    17. Van Halen - Dance The Night Away

    I'll provide a couple of hints to the missing ones around lunchtime if nobody correctly guesses them before that.

    Here's a few hints.

    8 & 16 are by the same band.

    11 is by a band I rave about constantly.

    7, the one I expect nobody to guess, is an old WWF theme song.

    Oh, and 11 is Black Tiger (Y&T)

    Can't believe I didn't get that on first listen.

    Correct & correct!

    That leaves only 8 and 16 & I'm really surprised nobody's gotten those yet.

    The band is usually a favorite among hard rock/metalheads. (Not Accept, Sam vs. Dave)

    Another hint. If nobody gets it by tomorrow morning, I will give the answer.

    8 came out in 2018 and was off the band's best album in nearly 30 years.

    16 came out in 1980 and was off the band's most commercially successful album.

    AH HA! Rapid Fire (Judas Priest)
    Man, now that I know it, I can't believe I didn't get it before. I knew I knew it, though, but thanks for the clues!

    No idea on number 8. Haven't listened to that album.

    Correct & correct!

    This was fun. If I can find a moment this weekend, I'll do volume 2.

    And if I keep doing this with some semblance of regularity, it'll be good for me because that means I'll have to force myself to learn new shit.
