Rock Songs With the Best Instrumentals

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Hocus Pocus (Focus)

Classic riff, excellent solos. One of the best early progressive rock bands ever.

Tjis Van Leer and Jan Akkermann tied for Guitar Player Magazine's: Guitar player of the Year, for this song.

102 Watch This (Slash)
103 Rumble (Link Wray)

Easily the best instrumental with one of the most influential artists of ALL TIME. Also check out Death Grips sample of this in Exmilitary (Brilliant album). - swagmaster97

Easily the best instrumental from one of the most influencial music artists of ALL TIME. - swagmaster97

104 Fractured Mirror (Ace Frehley)
105 One (Metallica)

106 The Count of Tuscany (Dream Theater)

This is not instrumental what the hell.

107 The Glass Prison (Dream Theater)
108 Beast and the Harlot (Avenged Sevenfold)
109 Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)

This is far from a instrumental. - Sabbath

110 Two Weeks (All that Remains)

Epic instrumental, strong and energetic, plus meaningful lyrics that mesh perfectly with the beat - mafree

111 What I've Done (Linkin Park)


112 The Kingmaker (Diamond Head)
113 Lenny (Stevie Ray Vaughan)
114 Feedin the Box (Blues Saraceno)
115 Apache (The Shadows)
116 Hamburger Train (Primus)
117 Black Magic (Reb Beach)
118 Pali Gap (Jimi Hendrix)

The beginning and the end of rock instrumentals. The definitive instrumental. Jimi playing 4 guitars, the soul, the feeling, the raw power.

119 Everything (Limp Bizkit)

Limp Bizkit's earlier work is classic. I consider it to be the work of musical geniuses. But their song "Everything" is different from their usual stuff. It's slow-tempo'd, but yet has such a deep feeling to it that makes you wanna keep listening to it for hours.

120 Revelation (Robben Ford)
