Plug in Baby by Muse has been voted 'Best Riff of the Decade', according to readers of Total Guitar magazine.

Stephen Lawson, Editor of Total Guitar magazine said: "I think Muse won because Matt Bellamy is a guitar hero for the 21st century. He's genuinely innovative, a real creative type who comes up with unique guitar parts. I'm sure it helps that his riffs are catchy too.

The poll, which features 50 of the 'best riffs' also includes the likes of Kasabian, Greenday, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Biffy Clyro and Elbow.
