2 The Four Horsemen - Metallica

I don't say these are the best solos (the list isn't about the best solos) - this is just my favorite song out of the songs with 2 or more solos. So I put it at #1 because for me this is the best song in this category. - Metal_Treasure

Thank you Dave Mustaine. - phoom26

3 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

I have a soft spot for the first solo, which is also longer. I can't even describe it's last notes - so beautifully sad and full of emotion. - Metal_Treasure

4 Hangar 18 - Megadeth

Count them - maybe 11 if we count the mini-solos within the solos. - Metal_Treasure

More than 2?! 8-11 I would say - gemcloben

6 Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne UListen to Sample
7 Keeper of the Seven Keys - Helloween

I also love the harmonising between Kai and Michael. When they dampen the strings just before the 2nd guitar solo. - IronSabbathPriest

This epic metal classic has at least four solos but we can also say from 4-13 solos because the 4th solo is composed of 8-9 mini-solos within the solo.
5:00-5:20 (20 seconds)
5:53 - 6:13 (20 seconds)
7:37-8:36 (1 minute)
9:35-11:40 (over 2 minutes, in 8-9 parts, on awesome dueling guitars). - Metal_Treasure

UListen to Sample
8 All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix

From 2 to 7 solos, depending on how you count them. - Metal_Treasure

9 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden UListen to Sample
10 Angel of Death - Slayer

Pretty much almost every Slayer song deserves to be on this list - SirSkeletorThe3rd

The Contenders

11 Painkiller - Judas Priest

I can't believe I forgot this one - the vocals and drum intro are so mindblowing that its two solos don't come to mind first. - Metal_Treasure

UListen to Sample
12 Black Star - Yngwie Malmsteen

This is an instrumental piece but it has 2 distinct solos (2:35, 4:10). It's probably my favorite instrumental and the piece I was listening to while making this list. - Metal_Treasure

22 Oh Pretty Woman - Gary Moore

Amazing blues rock song - one of my favorite non-metal songs.
3 solos - 2 from Gary Moore and 1 from Albert King as a guest musician (solos at 1:30, 2:35, 3:05) - Metal_Treasure

UListen to Sample
23 Pictures of Home - Deep Purple

2 guitar solos (plus a keyboard solo, and believe it or not - even a bass solo! Those people from Deep Purple are amazingly crazy! ) - Metal_Treasure

UListen to Sample
24 The Trend - Annihilator

3 distinct solos - 2 short ones in the intro and one regular later. - Metal_Treasure

25 Clown Parade - Annihilator

2 extremely fast, technical and relatively long solos, combined with Mike Mangini's flawless drumming:
1:50-2:40 (50 seconds)
3:00-3:30 (30 seconds, but it's a long time if you play so many notes per minute)
For 100% pleasure listen to the entire section from 1:50 to 3:30. These are one of the fastest and best solos I know - satisfaction guaranteed. - Metal_Treasure

UListen to Sample
26 Knockin' at Your Back Door - Deep Purple

This song is known for its unique intro but it also has 2 long distinct solos from Ritchie Blackmore (I can't say these are his best solos but still cool).
3:40 - 4:30 (50 secs)
5:55 - 6:55 (1 min, outro solo) - Metal_Treasure

UListen to Sample
27 Hungry Daze - Deep Purple

2 solos. This is one of my favorite DP songs and I think it's very underrated - unique riff and tunes, symphonic air to it, and I also love Gillan's growls, especially towards the end. - Metal_Treasure

30 I Can't Explain - The Who UListen to Sample
31 The Philosopher - Death UListen to Sample
32 The Man (That I Don't Know) - Primal Fear

A great epic song, ballad style. I like better the 2nd solo (outro solo). - Metal_Treasure

33 Get Back - The Beatles UListen to Sample
34 Don't Kill the Whale - Yes UListen to Sample
35 Tombstone Shadow - Creedence Clearwater Revival UListen to Sample
36 Military Man - Gary Moore

There are 2 solos played by Gary Moore.
This song was originally written by Phil Lynott and performed with Thin Lizzy and it's one of the best Thin Lizzy songs (I think this is also one of their metal songs). This song gives me goosebumps.
I prefer this version because Phil Lynott is actually a guest musician on this Gary Moore album and they sing this version together. Phil Lynott and Gary Moore were a great tandem and best friends.
R.I.P. Phil and Gary.
I'd also recommend this live version: Gary Moore - Military Man - Live Stockholm (1987) - Metal_Treasure

41 Art of Life - x Japan
42 Further On Up the Road - Eric Clapton, Robbie Robertson, the Band
43 Animals - Muse

An excellent bass line, and many well crafted guitar solos. The lyrics leave quite a bit to be desired, but the solos are impeccable.
