Top 10 Songs with Fake / False Endings

Fake / 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

1 Helter Skelter - The Beatles

"I've got blisters on my Fingers! " - christangrant

2 November Rain - Guns N' Roses
3 (Everything I Do) I Do It for You - Bryan Adams

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

7 Suspicious Minds - Elvis Presley
8 You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, but I Feel Like a Millionaire - Queens of the Stone Age

The Contenders

11 TV Eye - The Stooges
12 Bang and Blame - R.E.M.

Here music even comes back after 15 seconds of silence! - Metal_Treasure

13 The Resistance - Skillet

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

14 The Blackest Day - Annihilator

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

15 Problem Child - AC/DC

On the Dirty Deeds Version there's a false climax - christangrant

16 Tribute - Tenacious D

At the end it goes silent which then goes into about 15 seconds of more acoustic guitar riff - christangrant

18 Marquee Moon - Television
