Led Zeppelin's song 'Whole Lotta Love' has been voted as the best guitar riff of all time by listeners of BBC Radio 2.


The rock classic grabbed the top spot from a list of 100 riffs selected by a panel of Radio 2 and 6 Music DJs, critics and record producers, the BBC reported.

Zeppelin's song was followed by Guns 'N' Roses' 'Sweet Child O' Mine' and 'Back In Black' by AC/DC and 'Smoke On the Water' by Deep Purple were the next most popular guitar riffs.

Led Zep guitarist Jimmy Page asserted that he wanted a riff that really moved, that people would really get, and would bring a smile to their faces, but when he played it with the band, the song really went into overdrive.

Other songs in the list include 'Layla' by Derek and the Dominoes and 'How Soon Is Now?' by The Smiths.
