Greatest Long Rock Songs in History

The Contenders: Page 2

21 The End - The Doors 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

22 Sacred Worlds - Blind Guardian Sacred Worlds - Blind Guardian
23 Reach Down - Temple of the Dog Reach Down - Temple of the Dog
24 Do You Feel Like We Do - Peter Frampton 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.

25 From the Darkness - Spock's Beard From the Darkness - Spock's Beard
26 Suite Sister Mary - Queensryche Suite Sister Mary - Queensryche
27 Hey Jude - The Beatles 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.

28 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth
29 Octavarium - Dream Theater 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

Another amazing song from an amazing band!

33 Child In Time - Deep Purple Child In Time - Deep Purple

Child in Time is Deep Purple's masterpiece with powerful lyrics and music (it sounds calm at first but at the middle, you will be like wow), and its at a whopping 10 minutes

Not one Deep Purple on this list? This would be it, then. Epic. - BobG

Epic song, catchy tunes, awesome music!
