Greatest Long Rock Songs in History

21 Art of Life - X Japan

Stumbled upon this track while looking for Chinese and Japanese rock and metal acts, truly inspiring piece of music

Very best performance on live!
Thanks for yoshiki to bring great performance on this with double kick pedal

Genius.

Please guys! Listen to Art Of Life at least once. Just give it a try. You'll not regret it. And by the way, I posted a comment on this previously. I can't find it here anymore! What has happened to it? It was already approved as I remember or so. - Kiteretsunu

22 Reach Down - Temple of the Dog
23 Dogs - Pink Floyd

Seriously"its one the few Pink Floyd songs that you don't have to get high to love". You don't need drugs to listen to Pink Floyd. Listening to Pink Floyd gets you high

17 minutes of pure awesomeness. its one of the few pink floyd songs that you don't have to get high to to love. P. S. I don't do drugs. - Nickname

Damn. THIS should be first.

24 The End - The Doors

The Doors should be all over this list. Light My Fire, Riders On The Storm, When The Music's Over... Etc. But The End is an amazing song and frankly I think it is far superior to Stairway To Heaven, which is highly overrated.

This is simply better than Stairway to Heaven. And much more revolutionary.

I've always without a doubt considered this the best rock song over 10 mins. Vocals match the narrative in the lyrics so well

26 Voodoo Chile - Jimi Hendrix
27 From the Darkness - Spock's Beard
28 Suite Sister Mary - Queensryche
29 American Pie - Don McLean
30 Do You Feel Like We Do - Peter Frampton

Always omitted, but this song is awesome in so many ways. Also like green grass and high tides by the outlaws. Also REO's Riding the storm out.

31 When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin
32 War Pigs - Black Sabbath V 1 Comment
33 Octavarium - Dream Theater

I agree, Stairway to Heaven and November Rain are songs that will both be remembered forever in history, but this song, which is nearly 25 minutes long, is a masterpiece. I highly recommend this song if you haven't heard it. - gelatinbeastworm

Octavarium is down in the list only because other songs are more famous

This is the one that truly should be number one. It's 24 minutes long and it's the best song of all time. - Songsta41

Most so he on this list aren't even 'Long'. 6 minutes isn't long.

36 Hey Jude - The Beatles

One of my favourite Beatles songs, 6:30 something long. Just a little longer than No More Tears by Ozzy Ozborne, one of the only songs I air guitar to. The "nahs" go on for 3:45 seconds. So just under half the song.

37 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth
38 Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Iron Maiden V 2 Comments
39 Pigs (Three Different Ones) - Pink Floyd
40 Am I Evil? - Metallica
