Stuck In Thee Garage #58: November 21, 2014

Riffs are one of the building blocks of great rock music. A great riff sticks in your head and makes you want to hear that song over and over again. This week on Stuck In Thee Garage, I dedicated hour 2 to songs with great riffs, but songs that don't get played to death on classic rock radio.
