Best Rock Song Outros


The Top Ten

1 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

The first time I heard it, I thought the song had ended, but then the chords changed, the tone changed and the guitar kicked in. Still cannot place the feelings I get whenever I listen to it, a mixture of sadness, anger and bittersweetness.

How sick is this outro especially the feel and the setup its everything an amazing outro needs. It gives me goosebumps

Best available, but come on, no outro for "Layla? " I personally think it's the best one

Come on people what about "floods" by pantera. It's not even on the list

2 Child In Time - Deep Purple

The most emotional and epic outro I know (this is an anti-war song). - Metal_Treasure

3 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest UListen to Sample
4 Damien - Iced Earth

This outro is pretty unusual and should be praised for not being ordinary:

Whispered lines backed by gregorian chanting in the background. Jon's reversed voice repeats the message that is also in the middle silent section of the song. So, if the song is played backwards, the true message can be heard.
The song is amazing, too - one of the best metal songs ever. - Metal_Treasure

6 Floods - Pantera

Number one guys listen to it

This entire song is just so good and epic and it just keeps on getting better through the whole song. After dimes killer solo the outro comes and I wish it was longer. It's THAT good

This has the most legendary outro ever! Dimebag gives everything, and if you don't know who that is... Well you can go suck one!

I wish it was more it's so catchy and beautiful

7 Heaven Denies - Demons & Wizards

Trust me, this outro is the most beautiful vocal performance in the world!
Known for his harsh and powerful metal voice, here Hansi K├╝rsch comes up with his softest, angelic and almost spiritual voice - the outro sounds like gregorian chanting. - Metal_Treasure

8 Fade to Black - Metallica

The solo is just amazing so is the whole song this the second best Metallica song but it has the best intro

Best intro and best outro - Metallicafan01

10 Sir Psycho Sexy - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Just rediscovered this one. Amazing outro!

The great jam at the end is amazing! The outro is different to the rest of the song, and that makes it amazing. I really enjoy listening to it, and to the whole song!

The greatest outro in music history

The Contenders

11 Fiddler on the Green - Demons & Wizards
12 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian

Impressive symphonic metal - can't get more powerful and epic than this:
the outro combines the sound of a symphonic orchestra and a metal band. - Metal_Treasure

13 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

Ends with a solo, can't get better than that

14 Layla - Derek and the Dominoes

For Brother Duane...

Best outro ever!

People who haven't voted for Layla probably don't know the outro as part of Layla but more as a completely different song of its own. I used to love Layla and yet somehow never knew about its outro till recently.

Layla should be #1!
