So many to choose from! I'll go a little off the beaten path and say "Out on The Tiles".

Same here, possibly my favorite riff of all time. Honorable mentions to Whole Lotta Love, Black Dog, Achilles Last Stand.

You got that right. With Ritchie Blackmore and Angus Young just behind.

My understanding is that Black Dog was JPJ's riff, not Page's.

My favorite Page riff is Immigrant Song. Plus its backward twin, The Wanton Song!

Whole Lotta LoveAgreed. One of the all-time greatest opening riffs. I'll never forget when I bought LZ-II and popped it on the ol' turntable. From the opening riffs of Whole Lotta Love, I was hooked.

I've always been fond of the riff from The Rover. Excellent. Communication Breakdown is a great simple riff. Heartbreaker was one of the first riffs I learned to play on guitar. Misty Mountain Hop always gets me moving. Man, Zeppelin had some excellent riffs.

Page admitted a little while back that he lifted, if not the actual riff, then the direct inspiration for Black Dog from a Fleetwood Mac song. Can't remember which one.

Actually, we're both right:

"Black Dog" - Page admitted recently that the vocal arrangement on
this song was influenced by Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well." The song
is built around a bass riff by John Paul Jones.

Page was inspired by the call and response structure of Fleetwood Mac's Oh Well. That's how Black Dog's vocal call/band response format came about.

On a related note, at the time they were working on their fourth album, Fleetwood Mac was playing a live version of Keep A Knockin' by Little Richard. As it turns out, Rock and Roll came into existence when Bonham, fed up with trying to get the part in Four Sticks, started pounding out the rhythm of Keep A Knockin', and Page started jamming along with him.

No Quarter is pretty good :D :D It's such a hard core riff for a eerie piano ballad... it's like revolutionary and stuff.

I have a favorite, but embarrassingly, I can't remember the name of the song it's from.

It's the same one The Beastie Boys ripped off for one of the songs on "License To Ill." Anyone have a guess?

Martin Q. Blank

Oh, I just figured it out. It's "The Ocean."

The Beastie Boys also ripped off When The Levee Breaks.

I'll go with "Whole Lotta Love" - certainly one of the most recognizable & memorable riffs in rock music history.

"Whole Lotta Love" was what first came to mind when I saw this post, But after a little thought, I'm goin' with "Bring It On Home" Killer riff & tune for that matter.

For me it's Whole Lotta Love (since Black Dog is a JPJ riff). However, I'd just like to bring up one that nobody's mentioned. Nobody's Fault But Mine.

Whole Lotta LoveYes indeed!

Though The Lemon Song has two good ones!

Whole lotta love......MY dad had LZII on vinyl - probably had only heard Stairway before that from Zeppelin....and i knew nothing about the band or thier music. That riff really caught m ear........i didnt quite get the free form section after it....but that riff was just fascinating at first listen.....and still is.
