Alice in Chains "Man in the Box" solo is awesome, FastFret. As for RATM, A lot of Tom Morello's stuff rocks, he uses all those whammy pedals and stuff, creating all those phaser sounds, it rocks.

Thinking of solos, one of the coolest is "Ordinary World" (Duran Duran). It just copies the main theme of the song, but it sounds cool.

Another awesome solo is "The God That Failed," by Metallica.

Peace out guys, GuitarAnatomy.
