Rock Songs With the Best Instrumentals

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Free Bird (Lynyrd Skynyrd)

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.

42 Frankenstein (Edgar Winter)
43 New Divide (Linkin Park)

Who was stupid enough to put this song in this list and who is stupid enough to vote it? This song isn't instrumental, and besides, this isn't even one of the best linking park songs...

Chester with his amazing voice again mesmerizing in this song with the music in background really really awesome song indeed.

Transformers for the win

New divide lovely song love you Linkin Park

44 Speeding (Steve Vai)
45 Losfer Words (Big 'Orra) (Iron Maiden)
46 This is How I Disappear (My Chemical Romance)

My Chemical Romance has best songs one of his song This Is How I Disappear has great instrumental rock music. so my request is to checkout this! I'm sure you'll add this legend song!

Not really an instrumental but its still very good! The guitars are very good on record and even better live. Drums are just as good.

47 Black Widow of La Porte (John5) Black Widow of La Porte (John5)
48 The Kill (30 Seconds To Mars)
49 Cliffs of Dover (Eric Johnson)

Cliffs of dover is in top20 in greatest guitar solos of all time by rolling stone magazine... This is the most unfair thing ever...

Listen to this song and you'll know why it's the best instrumental ever created. Ever. Awesome solo

A true masterpiece

This is the smoothest and most kickass rock instrumental in history.

50 Don't Start (Too Late) (Black Sabbath)
51 The Loner (Gary Moore)
52 Beck's Bolero (Jeff Beck)
53 Dialectic Chaos (Megadeth)
54 Nightmare (Avenged Sevenfold)

I don't get this list. Almost half of songs here aren't instrumental. Is is about rock songs with great instrumental uses where vocals doesn't matter? - zxm

A7X's best song to date, up there with the best songs ever written for mainstream metal - mafree

55 Impulse (An Endless Sporadic) V 1 Comment
56 Toxicity (System of a Down)

With the lyrical genius/intensity added to Toxicity, much like all other System of a Down songs, fused with the instrumental work, it's one of the best metal/rock songs you can hope to find out there.

It's one of the best instrumental rock songs and best lyrics and a kind of song showing some rasons, the reason that's real for what we're facing now. No one can't say will never be again. But it's a kind perfect by the nature, we are to say at the end.

57 In Memory of Elizabeth Reed (The Allman Brothers Band)

jazz-rock at it's best particularly on the Filmore east version amazing a million times better than anything on this list! - crazynutjob

58 Marooned (Pink Floyd)

So beautiful and yet depressing. Makes the hairs on my neck stand up

Marooned is so beautiful, I think it deserves higher rank then 52.

59 Layla (Derek and the Dominos)
60 Radar Love (Golden Earring)
