    I know they're not cool anymore, but I still love a great guitar solo. Post your favorites. Start with the best of the best:

    No they are cool. You don't listen to that much metal do you?

    So glad you started this thread. I LOVE songs that have guitar solos. Just went to Mayhem festival in Ohio and saw Motorhead and Slayer back to back. Solos galore!

    This one has the solo in the beginning for whatever reason, but it RULES.

    One of my favorite songs. Each song by BDM have a solo. It was hard to choose.

    May the mighty Mjølnir nail the bleeding
    And naked Nazarene upon the pagan planks
    Pound in the painful nails now and hang him high and dry!
    Viking metal owns.

    Yeah, I had to learn that solo for a class in college. It's pretty obscure.

    Start at 2:45 for proper lead in, and the solo starts at 3:10 and ends at 3:24: quick and tasteful like all solos should be.

    Starts at 3:08, but the whole track (and album, and discography) kicks serious ass.

    1:48 you get a sweep pick assault that lasts nary ten seconds.
