Favorite Guitar Solos

I'm sure there's been another thread like this somewhere (heck I might even made one), but I couldn't find it so here it is. This is more or less a thread to discuss guitar solos, so I'm not asking anyone to put down a definite list. As a guitar player my personal style effects what my favorite solos are, so if I say I think a solo is the best one ever, it's likely that I enjoy playing myself and it fits my style of playing.

Without further ado here is a list of some of my favorites:
White Lion - Radar Love (my personal favorite solo of all time)
White Lion - Wait
Van Halen - You Really Got Me
Van Halen - Eruption (I honestly think this is the most important and influential guitar solo in music history)
Van Halen - Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love (never has a song so simple rock as hard as this song does, goes for the solo as well)
Van Halen - Somebody Get Me A Doctor
Van Halen - Spanish Fly
Van Halen - Jump
Van Halen - Hang 'Em High
Van Halen - Panama
Van Halen - Hot For Teacher
Whitesnake - Here I Go Again
Winger - Seventeen
Winger - Miles Away

The last solo in This Godless Endeavor by Nevermore. It's always pissed me off that Warrel sings over half of it.

I love inside jokes, I'd love to be a part of one some day.
