Greatest Long Rock Songs in History

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Thick As a Brick - Jethro Tull

Nope, Passion Play by Jethro Tull is longer but less well known.

I think this is the longest rock song? Am I right?

82 Green Grass & High Tides - The Outlaws

This song should be in the top 10

Shocked it's not in the top 25 or 30

Great song indeed

83 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold

Really great song with a very dark story.

84 Moon and the Memories - D'erlanger
85 Liar - Queen
86 The March of the Black Queen - Queen
87 Paradise by the Dashboard Lights - Meatloaf

Shocked someone hadn't already listed this great classic

Great classic and still strong even today!

88 Tarkus - Emerson Lake & Palmer

This is without a doubt the greatest song ever recorded. The changing time signatures, the technicality in performing it, and the sheer epic nature to it. Keith Emerson, as always, kills it on the keys, while Greg Lake's warm vocals keep the song in a beautiful flow. Carl Palmer's percussion is quite brilliant as well. How several Guns n' Roses songs got voted higher than this is beyond me.

89 You Suffer - Napalm Death

Why isn't this #1

It's SO long

90 Exist - Avenged Sevenfold
91 Finale - L'arc~en~Ciel
92 Ain't Afraid to Die - Dir En Grey
93 White Feathers - L'Arc~en~Ciel
94 Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence - Dream Theater
95 Twilight Zone - Golden Earring

Reason not needed for this head jamming classic

96 Get Ready - Rare Earth
97 I Heard It Through the Grapevine - Creedence Clearwater Revival


98 Close to the Edge - Yes

18 minutes of pure Yes. Sliding guitar, wailing synths, brilliant composition. The entire band works in sync.

99 Sister Ray - The Velvet Underground

17 and a half minutes of improvised genius.

Come on, it's the VU

100 X - X Japan
