Greatest Long Rock Songs in History

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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!

22 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

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 Reach Down - Temple of the Dog
25 American Pie - Don McLean
26 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian
27 Voodoo Chile - Jimi Hendrix
28 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.

29 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.

30 From the Darkness - Spock's Beard
31 Suite Sister Mary - Queensryche
32 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!
