If you haven't gotten your backside in gear and given us your selection for the Best Riff Of The Decade yet, then you need to get a move on as we're closing the poll at midnight this Friday (13 August)!

That means that you've got less than two days to stick in your two pence (or cents, depending on geography) and help us decide on a new set of classic riffs for the 21st Century.
