What do you guys think are must learn riffs for guitarists and why.

I will start it off
Sweet child o mine

Reason
Everyone recognises this riff no matter what music genre they are into. And am pretty sure lots of people picked up the guitar because of Slash

+1 on Immigrant Song and Rock Bottom! Those were some of the first riffs I learned to play. Also maybe add "Whole Lotta Love" and
"Black Dog".
Nazareth, "Hair Of The Dog" is a great one too because so many other riffs are played in the same position.

The intro/main riff from 'I'm broken' from Pantera - it really is a powerful riff that will make everybody move instantly!
