Greatest Long Rock Songs in History

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Kurenai - X Japan
102 Vinushka - Dir En Grey
103 White Lightning - Def Leppard
104 I'm Going Home - Ten Years After

This song as performed at Woodstock should have a special award enshrined in the rock hall of fame!

105 The Fountain of Salmacis - Genesis
106 Lucretia My Reflection - Sisters of Mercy
107 Ballroom Blitz - The Sweet
108 Ghost Love Score - Nightwish
109 The Poet and the Pendulum - Nightwish

It's rather sad to see comparatively simplistic songs dominate all music top 10s from the same old bands. This song is, in my opinion, far more deserving of the #1 slot for it's unparalleled force, beauty, and extravagance. I'd say if more people had even heard this song, it would be significantly higher. Think you'd disagree? Listen for yourself, all the way through.

110 Mirror of Souls - Theocracy

So long and so good - NintendoMaster853

111 Soldiers of the Wasteland - Dragonforce
112 Coma - Guns N' Roses
113 The Prophet's Song - Queen

This song is simply amazing. My favorite from A Night At The Opera. Yes, it is better than Bohemian Rhapsody!

This is one of the greatest songs of Queen which should be in top 10!

Even better than "Bohemian Rhapsody," if you can believe that!

114 Sky Pilot - Eric Burdon & the Animals
115 Time Has Come Today - Chambers Brothers
116 Bluebird - Buffalo Springfield

Rare long version is over 11 minutes.

117 La Villa Strangiato - Rush V 1 Comment
118 Soothsayer - Buckethead
119 Mistreated - Deep Purple
120 Close to the Edge - Yes

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