The Top Ten
I'm not sure if this is THE greatest song of all time, but it's definitely one of the greatest. - allamassal
In a lifetime of songs listened to, this one is the best.
A true epic - iliekpiez
The greatest song of all time doesn't deserve to be below Total Eclipse of the Heart
Epicness is flowing through my body when the third solo starts. - Userguy44
Epic songs, and without Manowar?
Everything in this masterpiece is epic - epic length (14:08), epic composition with many parts that get more intense, symphonic orchestration, epic story, and last but not least - mindblowing vocals from Hansi Kürsch with complex overlapping vocal harmonies creating a choir effect. Just amazing!
The song is about the final days of Troy, as foreseen by Cassandra, daughter of the king of the destroyed city. - Metal_Treasure
Why is this not #1?
Much greater and more epic than BoRap.
This masterpiece from Ritchie Blackmore and Dio (1976) pretty much defined "epic" in metal music. - Metal_Treasure
Listen to this Before you vote its pretty epic - christangrant
Incredible song. Symphonic, beautiful and 100% epic. Listen to the 2013 version live at Wacken Open Air with the singer Floor Jansen. Watch it right to the end - it's incredible.
One of the most underrated songs of all time, like a modern symphony, of such beauty and grace. It might not be a classic like many other more famous epic songs, but to me, it is the most complex and beautiful of those songs. - Martin_Canine
YES YES YES
I CAME TO THIS LIST EXPECTING NOT TO SEE THIS SONG BUT HERE IT IS! THANK YOU
16:26 min long. Jon Schaffer rules!
I only don't like the song sample on here - it's not the original, it's a live version with abother singer. It's good for a live version but you know, the original studio version should have been on here. - Metal_Treasure
From the masters of epicness - Blind Guardian. - Metal_Treasure
This is what you can call epic! - Userguy44
Epic symphonic metal at its best - one of the most impressive and crafted songs I've ever heard. - Metal_Treasure
This song is pretty overrated, but I still think it's epic. - allamassal
What why is this not number 1?
No words for it. - Userguy44
If you think the intro was epic enough. Listen to the outro as well. - Userguy44
The galloping riffs and the harmonies... Need I say more?
Literally the most uplifting and driving song of all time. Pretty much any meatloaf song could be here, but Bat Outta Hell really is the epitome when it comes to epic songs that have all sorts of rides throughout them.
This is a great song, without a doubt, but how does it qualify as "epic"? - Martin_Canine
Just give it a listen. - Userguy44
It's right in the title.
Slow to fast, solo to acoustic to metal progressive to orchestra, singing to poetry, meaning inside another meaning, it's 24 minute full of roller coaster
Are y'all stupid, or just never heard the song
