Top 10 Songs with Fake / False EndingsFake / false ending is when you think a song is finished (because it does sound like finished), only to hear it starts again... It's an element of surprise in songs.
The Top Ten
Well it has like four fake endings so it has to be number 1. - JoLeKosovo
"I've got blisters on my Fingers! " - christangrant
The original album version is 6:30 minutes long and the false ending became the real ending of the single/video edit of the song. - Metal_Treasure
Probably the best-known use of the "false fade." And a great song overall.
At 4:10 the singer even says "This is the end" but after 3-4 seconds of silence music comes back for 1 more minute. I love this song - great riffing. The sample is from a live verstion. - Metal_Treasure
Here music even comes back after 15 seconds of silence! - Metal_Treasure
As this is the last song on the album you'd want it to go out with a bang. After the third chorus it seems to play the tune to close off the song, but just when you think it ends it then starts rocking up again with Seth Morrison blasting out a truly awesome solo.
What a song to end the album on. - SuperSonic17
After the long instrumental part that sounded like an outro to me, the music came back. It's amazing. - Metal_Treasure
On the Dirty Deeds Version there's a false climax - christangrant
At the end it goes silent which then goes into about 15 seconds of more acoustic guitar riff - christangrant
It has a fade-out false ending lasting for about 20 seconds and then the music comes back - Metal_Treasure
