I feel repetitive riffs are only very annoying in two circumstances:

1) The band are around for 20+ years and use the riff twice, but in the same execution in the same place in songs that are years apart from each other.

2) A crappy younger band are blatantly copying an older cand, example: BFMV - Waking the Demon, copies Slayer - Spirit in Black

Im not giving giving an example for the first one cuz, well, I wanted to bash BFMV a lil

With regards the Helloween thing, I think stuff like that is more forgivable as both talents are formidable, and its an influence thing, not a rip off thing.

I get quite annoyed when people use riffs that are someone else's. Motorhead's 'No Class' and ZZ Top's 'Tush', for instance.

Then of course there are bands like U2, who use the same riff on every single one of their songs...

One that I noticed a while back was Trivium ripping off Dio's "We Rock" in "Anthem (We Are the Fire)". Another real big one is Machine Head ripping off the "Die" part in "Creeping Death" in "Clenching the Fists of Descent". And of course the countless melodic death metal/metalcore riffs.
