5 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down
6 One - Metallica One - Metallica

The song start off very slow and somber, and as it goes along it picks up pace until it eventually evolves into a madhouse of shredding guitars and thundering drums. After a four-minute-long face-melting solo the song charges full-force towards the end for a few seconds, and then slams to a stop with the brutality of a high-speed car accident - a perfect contrast to the gentle, calm vibes of the intro. Nothing short of amazing.

7 The March of the Black Queen - Queen The March of the Black Queen - Queen
8 November Rain - Guns N' Roses November Rain - Guns N' Roses

Whoa! It was at #12. My vote made it #10.
But where it deserves to be is #1
Greatest guitar solo ever at the climax.
Slash is not like God... He IS God
Only wish Guns N' Roses remained the same

9 Life's Been Good - The Eagles Life's Been Good - The Eagles

They really messed up with the wah wah version. Am I the only one who knows the "Uh oh. Here comes a flock of wah wahs" I KNOW I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS!

Great cover and ending to the song from the legendary Robert Johnson - some may not think of these guys as a real band but they played live and the band had professional musicians - ekos

Forty second-long chord that made history. I can only imagine what folks were thinking, sitting at their record players in 1967. It's amazing how big of an impact it has on me. Actually, the only thing that's amazing is the fact that it amazes me.

simply the best ending for the last song on a revolutionary album like sgt pepper

The end cord/note made history - ekos

Never could be any other way!
