Top 10 Rock and Metal Songs With Surprising and Unusual Elements


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Locomotive Breath - Jethro Tull
22 Viginti Trees - Tool

This song was basically meant to synchronise with Wings Part 1 & 2 of Tools 10.000 Days Album!
When you do this in the right way, it reveals a new much bigger song, that is - CastlevaniaFanboy128

23 Lateralus - Tool

Lateralus used the Fibonacci-Sequence in its melody and lyrics! It's absolutely insane to hear a song, like this! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

24 Summit - Giant Squid
25 Majesty - Blind Guardian

This is one of the fastest metal songs with clean vox (and also pretty heavy) but it opens with a waltz by Johann Strauss II ('The Blue Danube'). - Metal_Treasure

26 Stargazer - Rainbow

Again, arabic scales with radial symmetry in a metal song. The song is about Egypt. - Metal_Treasure

27 Still Life - Iron Maiden

There's a hidden message at the beginning which could only be understood by playing the song backwards. This was a joke and an intended swing back at the critics who had accused Iron Maiden of being Satanic. The backwards-message features Nicko McBrain mimicking actor John Bird's impression of Idi Amin, uttering the following phrase "What ho said the t'ing with the three 'bonce', do not meddle with things you don't understand...", followed by a belch. The phrase itself is taken from the satirical album The Collected Broadcasts of Idi Amin (1975) by Bird and Alan Coren. - Metal_Treasure

28 Ruby Tuesday - Rolling Stones

Flute part in a classic rock song

29 It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'N' Roll) - AC/DC V 1 Comment
