Muse have undoubtedly written a number of great riffs, and certainly in Plug In Baby and Hysteria, some iconic ones of their own.

But Zeppelin's riffs were/are genre defining, they have inspired generations of musicians. I'm sure Muse's riffs will too, but they will always pale into significance when compared against Zeppelin.

Heck, Muse themselves have already borrowed heavily from Led Zeppelin's riffs and quoted a couple live, Heartbreaker / Who Knows Who? comes to mind.

And anyhoo, Zeppelin weren't even the class of their time/generation, that honour undoubtedly goes to Black Sabbath for sheer individuality of riffage at the time.

Zeppelin's riffs hawked the blues; Tony Iommi / Sabbath's riffs were unlike anything ever heard before and, quite literally, scared the shit out of people.

They as near as damnit single-handedly laid all the foundations, every single cornerstone of heavy metal. That > anything Muse will ever do.

Honourable mention for Deep Purple too. Ritchie Blackmore's riffs were so clever, so refined for their time. Muse will never get close to Stairway To Heaven, Paranoid or Smoke On The Water.

Just realized this got moved, sorry I posted it where I did. I forgot at the time that it wouldn't really fit as well in the songs and releases forum than here.
