Greatest Long Rock Songs in History

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Sister Ray - The Velvet Underground V 1 Comment
122 Hurricane - Bob Dylan

Raw spirited poetry in your face!

123 Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd
124 Silent Jealousy - X Japan
125 Father to Son - Queen
126 Speedway at Nazereth - Mark Knopler

You won't believe it. This song brings banjos, fiddles, violins, metal, electric, etc. Guitars with folk, gospel, and rock all in one package. I don't know how mark did it, but he hit the nail on the head with this one!

127 Purple Rain - Prince

Love it!

128 Twilight Alehouse - Genesis
129 Cortez the Killer - Neil Young
130 Might As Well Be On Mars - Alice Cooper

A criminally underrated song fron the granddaddy of shock rock himself.

131 Mirror of Souls - Theocracy
132 Burn - Sevendust

A beautiful song that finds a delicate balance between anger and peacefulness before leading into the album's intense and pulse-pounding closing track, the self-titled "Alpha".

133 Walk Away - Sevendust

This song really shows the power this band can maintain when they have an extended running time to work with. A lot of their tracks are around 3-4 minutes in length normally, so this and "Burn" are their only two examples of extended tracks, which is disappointing to a certain extent because they really should have more songs than two that are over the 6 minute mark. This song is amazing and will keep you coming back for more.

134 And You and I - Yes

I am shocked that there is not a yes song on the list

135 For Those About to Rock - AC/DC
136 The Prisoner - Iron Maiden
137 Racecar - Periphery V 1 Comment
138 The Pusher - Steppenwolf
139 Roll Over Beethoven - Electric Light Orchestra

Another favorite of deejays on FM album rock stations when they needed a potty break.

Oh yeah. "Shall I bring them to your gate,
Or Sad- Eyed Lady should I wait" - Billyv
