Disposable Heroes, Creeping Death- Metallica
Mr. Crowley, Believer - Ozzy Osbourne (Randy Rhodes)
Kissing The Shadows, Warheart - Children of Bodom
Highway Star - Deep Purple
Dead Flowers - Rolling Stones
Eruption, Spanish Fly - Van Halen
Moonage Daydream - David Bowie
Paranoid Android - Radiohead
Killed By Death - Motorhead

I'm sure there are others, but this is just off the top of my head.

Although they aren't technically hard or extremely fast, Paul McCartney's solo on "Taxman" and "Good Morning, Good Morning" are simply amazing.

Also the three Beatles solo on "The End."

My cliche vote goes to "Freebird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd...that is truely superb.

I'm sure I'm going to catch some flack for this, but the following has been one of my favorite guitar solo's ever...

Berton Averre's solo on the Knack's "My Sharona". The full length album version, and not the single version - which most are familair with - as half the solo I'm talking about isn't on that version.

Maybe not the greatest, but certainly underated.

That's the EXACT solo I was going to post.

Joe Satriani - anything...not an album name, not a song name...just pick anything. Amazing.

Steve Vai - anything...same deal.

I'm rapidly becoming impressed by Frank Zappa (only started listening in the last month or so...see the floating Zappa thread).

Damn. Mine haven't either.

Here's what I wrote last time:

The Knack's Berton Averre's guitar solo in "My Sharona" kicks ass. Stinky or otherwise.

Dick Dale's guitar action on the album "Tribal Thunder" (and others).

My favorites:

"Happy" by the Rolling Stones
The crazed wah-wah in "Don't" by Dinosaur Jr.
The live "Little Johnny Jewel" off of "The Blow Up" by Television, or the solo in "Marquee Moon" by the same band.
The long second solo on "Blue Sky" by the Allman Brothers
Jimmy Page going nuts with a slide on the Led Zeppelin dvd on "In My Time of Dying"
Eddie Hazel's immortal "Maggot Brain" on the Funkadelic album of the same name (actually equalled by his crushing solo in "Super Stupid" on the same album)
Lou Reed's fucked up mess on "Sister Ray"
Neil Young's opening work on "Country Home"
"Crazy Train" (obvious, but c'mon it fucking rocks), same goes for "Texas Flood" by SRV
Carlos Sanatana's "Soul Sacrifice" at Woodstock, right when the acid started to peak.
The combined acoustic/electric solo on "Supernaut" by Sabbath

Just about any Frank Zappa solo. The most under-appreciated guitarist ever.

Shall I pick one? Black Napkins will do.

I'm not going to pretend to be a Beatles expert but I would think the solo on Taxman would be Harrison's it was his song and wasn't Paul mainly the bass player.

Springsteen's solo on Warren Zevon's "Disorder in the House" is pretty cool.

Alex Lifeson (Rush)-Limelight
Rik Emmett(Triumph)-When the Lights Go Down
Reb Beach (Winger)-Seventeen...such an awesome guitar player that got overlooked as being just another "hair band" player.
