Rock Songs With the Best Instrumentals
The Contenders: Page 2
I don't want to live on this planet anymore
What is wrong with the voters? Have they ever listened to this masterpiece? Any place lower than 2nd is witless! This song has one of the best guitar solo ever made. But the problem is, most of the listeners of this generation don't know music. They tend to know the most popular band and go with them. Orion and La Villa Strangiato are the best instrumentals ever.
Best song by Rush, one of the best of all time and No 20, behind Stairway to heaven which ISN'T AN INSTRUMENTAL
Just here it once and you will change your mind. The alex lifeson solo is godlike.
This should be number one followed by YYZV 7 Comments
30 seconds to mars has diversity in their songs, this ones the best
INSTRUMENTALS ARE ARE SONGS Without VOCALS. Stairway to heaven and free bird are not instrumentals you stupid morons.
Why the heck can this be down here? This should be 1st overall 3rd minimum
What a great acoustic masterpiece!
This song has one of the greatest riffs ever, in all of its simplicity.
Oh, and it also has a violin solo.
Not instrumental. - zxm
Great song, NOT AN INSTRUMENTAL
This and DoE are probably the best instrumentals I've ever listened to. Dream Theater is certainly a ground-breaking band when it comes to pure musicianship... Just can't beat em. Can't believe this is below New Divide by Linkin Park of all things (which, like the posters above me pointed out, isn't even an instrumental), let alone not on the top ten. But anyways whatever, DT will never get the recognition they deserve it seems, and I'm just glad that me and some others can comprehend the master musicianship they have to offer. Amazing Song.
Many of you failed to understand the term "instrumental". Instrumental=no vocals!
How is this 26. Should be top 5 just because Van Halen, Metallica, and rush is well known doesn't mean they have the best instrumental. I love orion but this is my favorite
Dream Theater are the gods of instrumentals, harmonies you have never heard in your life, weird yet melodic modelasions and time signature changes... anyway this is my least favorite instrumental by them, Eve is my Favorite...V 1 Comment
I love this all time greatest melodies rocking instrumental rock and blues. It is the finest work of steve vai till the date. I recommend this song for all listeners at least one time to listen and enjoy it!
Total Masterpiece from Vai. Epic depiction of effortlessness and the feel one can bring out from an electric guitar.
Reminds me of something you'd hear from David Gilmour, so in other words, this song is a masterpiece.
The first 5 minutes build up to the famous five minute guitar solo
There is no song better than this song. The way the Band worked up the song is just amazing. The slide guitar play is the best I have ever heard and the play of the rest of the Band at the fast part is not to be denied.
This is a song that really got the crowd going but that is not the only reason it is so great. It is great because of the aforementioned facts.
