Top Ten Most Epic Songs

The best songs that can be considered as epic in sense of either unusually long, bombastic/orchestral and/or consisting in several segments.

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

The greatest song of all time doesn't deserve to be below Total Eclipse of the Heart

It's the greatest song of all time. - Catacorn

2 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden
3 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

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

4 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

I like this a little better than Bohemian Rhapsody. - Catacorn

Much greater and more epic than BoRap.

5 Preliator - Globus

Listen to this Before you vote its pretty epic - christangrant

6 One - Metallica
7 Ghost Love Score - Nightwish

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

8 Metal Health - Quiet Riot
9 Stargazer - Rainbow

This masterpiece from Ritchie Blackmore and Dio (1976) pretty much defined "epic" in metal music. - Metal_Treasure

10 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler

The Newcomers

? Master Exploder - Tenacious D

The Contenders

11 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance
12 Thriller - Michael Jackson
13 Welcome Home - Coheed and Cambria
14 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth

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

15 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian V 1 Comment
16 Sacred Worlds - Blind Guardian

Epic symphonic metal at its best - one of the most impressive and crafted songs I've ever heard. - Metal_Treasure

17 Painkiller - Judas Priest
18 The Poet and the Pendulum - Nightwish
19 Livin’ On a Prayer - Bon Jovi
20 The End - The Doors
