Most Epic Rock Songswolphert
The Top Ten
Oh you gotta be kidding me... The list to epic always starts with STARGAZER. It is the most epic song ever written and recorded... The vocals, the riffs, the holy solo, the awesome drum beats.. You name it its all here.. Other songs mentioned here are good but this is whole another level... THIS is how you spell epic.
It took me a little while to fully appreciate this song, but now I know that there is no better song in rock. From start to finish Ronnie James Dio keeps you hooked on the vocals and lyrics, and everything flows incredibly well. It is as epic as it is complex, yet somehow the final two minutes outshine the rest of the song. The orchestra playing behind Dio, who gives the best vocal performance in rock history.
It is both Dio and Blackmore at there peaks. The lyrics are great as well as the vocals.
And the guitar work is excellent. This song is one of the best metal tracks out there.
An incredibly ambitious effort, and they pulled it off. The fact that this is consistently ranked ahead of Man on the Silver Mountain(one of the most played rock songs on radio) is a testament to how great it is!V 7 Comments
Kashmir is the greatest epic of all time, with every part fading in and out seamlessly. It has a magnificent riff and is enchanting when played loudly!
Ageless and hypnotically addictive. Pretty much like all of Led Zeppelin's music... In My Time Of Dying - Physical Graffiti and When The Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin IV also belong high on epic song list.
its that epic that in guitar hero wt you play it on a floating ship with eagles pulling it - wolphert
The vocals alone make this a classic.
The guitar is magic. - Donut
Impressive symphonic metal - can't get more epic than this. Outstanding music, vocals and performance in general - one of the most beautiful and powerful pieces I've ever heard. - Metal_Treasure
How on earth is this not number 1? Bohemian Rhapsody is way more epic than any of these on the list. Just listen to the opera sequence with Freddie's epic vocal range.
Greatest rock song ever. very complex, intense, mysterious, and big. All hail the Queen!
THE most epic rock song ever, no question, end of story...
This is number 1 everyone knows it!V 2 Comments
This song is truly EPIC, almost blew my brains the first time I listened to it. Its Rush at its best. Amazing battery, guitar, vocals, lyrics. Truly amazing song, there's nothing like it.
Arguably the best progressive rock song ever; anyone who has listened to this song knows how epic this song is. I can't believe 2112 didn't crack the top 10.
Can't believe this is 27. Rush is so under-appreciated.
One of the best songs ever, one of the best band ever
Stairway to Heaven is not only one of the best rock songs, but one of the best songs of all time. Believe me, that is most certainly not an overstatement. Anyone who has heard this song knows how mystical the lyrics, Robert Plant's voice, and Jimmy Pages guitar sounds. Not to mention, it has one of the best guitar solos in rock history. I like One (Metallica) and Pull Me Under (Dream Theater) a lot too, but Stairway is just amazing. If you haven't heard it yet, stop reading this and go listen to it.
This Deserves To Be #1
Stairway To Heaven is the most epic masterpiece in rock N roll history
WAY better than Pull Me Under!
Killer riff, heavy sound, epic and powerful vox. Beware - the intro riff is so powerful that can open your 3rd eye, especially the live version from California Jamming 1974. - Metal_Treasure
Some people may see this as evil, but truth be told, it's not. Some people probably don't realize this, but this is an anti-war song. In other words, it's letting us know that war and murder is very evil and needs to stop. It's a great but misunderstood song that more than well deserves a spot on this list. And I love Black Sabbath.V 1 Comment
Iron maiden is the god of metal and they proved that by this song and it deserves to be number 1. Of course I'm a die heart fan of this god of metal. Every band must bow their head after this god of metal. Thank you!
All three maiden songs in this list are excellent this one is the best and I wish AFRAID TO SHOOT STRANGERS was in this list too! This songs deserves a higher spot, perhaps 2
