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 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold

Really great song with a very dark story.

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

Shocked someone hadn't already listed this great classic

Great classic and still strong even today!

87 Green Grass & High Tides - The Outlaws

This song should be in the top 10

Shocked it's not in the top 25 or 30

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

Reason not needed for this head jamming classic

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


97 Exist - Avenged Sevenfold
98 X - X Japan
99 Akuro No Oka - Dir En Grey
100 Kurenai - X Japan
