Riffs is the twenty-sixth studio album by the English rock band Status Quo, released in December 2003. Ten tracks were cover versions of pop and rock standards, the other five were re-recordings of songs they had previously issued during the 1970s. The initial release also included a bonus 9-track DVD, featuring footage recorded for television programmes and also the video for the 2002 Top 20 hit 'Jam Side Down', recorded on HMS Ark Royal

Status Quo's third album of covers in seven years continues more in the vein of Famous in the Last Century than in the footsteps of Don't Stop; that album, after all, seemed dedicated to establishing the band as all-around pop entertainers. Riffs, on the other hand, restates their credentials as perhaps the single most influential guitar band in British rock history by lining some of Quo's own past classics up alongside the best of their musical references. And the marriage is seamless
