Whoever wrote this list is a moron. How about you check out the LIVE version of Rocket by Def Leppard,the solos in the live version rock. I can't believe there weren't any "solo's" by Kurt Cobain on here.

Peter Frampton, Do you feel should not be on here at all. It is a great song, with a great solo, especially considering the talk-box solo, which has become a staple of his performances of the song, was actually an accident at the fillmore. He had it for show me the way, and clicked it on by accident, but decided to roll with it. It such a good solo, and how can you actually justify something on this list by saying "Come on—if you’re gonna address the audience through a Talk Box during your extended guitar solo, wouldn’t you at least have some fun with it and say “I need a blowjob,” or something?"

Putting one of Dime's solos from the Metal Magic album is the ultimate in douchebaggery. He was like 16 at the time and the album (more like a demo tape) was produced by his Dad.

Fuck you for the criticizing FNM's "Epic" too.

Really? Fight for your Right (to Party) from Beastie Boys isn't on there?? REALLY??? It should be Number ONE.

And I always thought Asia's "Heat Of The Moment" had the worst solo of all time... And yet it still gets radio play...

How could you people forget the greatest worst guitar player of Rock"n"Roll? Mark Farner is the best worst at all. Check it and see.

So you were sitting around thinking "Hey! let's insult EVERYONE! We need new readers that don't know anything and think Guitar Hero can make you an awesome guitarist!"

You have to be kidding on most of this, right? The jokes are funny, though.

I agree with the majority of your list, but I'm just amased that you didnt mention some of the worst so called guitar players ever...anything by kurt nobrain, who couldnt tune a guitar let alone play one, or any of those other usless pieces of shit from seattle!After slamming talented people like Satriani and Mustain, you really fucked up any trust I would have in your abilities! And lets not forget anything done by "the sluge" from u2, there is so much effects on all his stuff I cant tell if he knows how to play!

Wrong comment to reply on.
But I do disagree with you on Kurt Cobain.
He was OK.

I'm all for calling out over rated guitarists. So what about everything Trey Azagthoth has ever recorded?

The Solo from Faith No More's Epic might not be a bazillion miles per second, but at least it's got a beginning, middle & end.

Calling out White Stripes, Spin Doctors, & Black Flag is playing it pretty safe. So is calling out Dimebag for their pre 90's material. Why not lambaste Dime for the totally uninspired nonsensical shred-o-rama he was guilty of in the 90's?

And Jay Jay French didn't even play the solo in We're Not Gonna Take it. Thats Eddie Ojeda. And you might as well nail Nirvana for doing the exact same thing in Teen Spirit.

I kinda thought this list sucked. Its hypocritical. Michael Angelo is getting bashed by the same people who named him fastest in the world. And lay off Styx. DeYoung writes the best ballads. And how can you criticize the Great Ace Frehley?

I agree with you this list is crap and MAB's solo in Freight Train blew my mind. That's BS right there
