Top Ten Rock Songs with the Most Unique Instruments


The Top TenXW

1Dulcimer Stomp - Aerosmith
2Locomotive Breath - Jethro Tull
3Urgent - Foreigner

Yes, a mindblowing sax solo instead of a guitar solo is absolutely unique on a hard rock song. Great song, great sax. Junior Walker cut one of the most memorable sax solos in one take. Moreover, Foreigner played the raw track for him only once and asked him to improvise a solo. - Metal_Treasure

4Spoonman - Soundgarden
5Poundcake - Van Halen
6Ain't It Fun - Paramore

They put an Xylophone in an Alternative song. This wins. - TheEvilNuggetCookie
