To qualify it must be 7.5 minutes long or greater.

I'll start.

Stargazer by Rainbow. In my opinion it's epic.

    If I play 'Legs' by ZZ Top twice that would be long enough. But its more about the video really :)

    Are you sure that's a tea break and not another kind of break? :D

    I'd go with Telegraph Road by Dire Straits.

    Shine On You Crazy Diamond, by da Floyd.

    Whether it can be deemed 'rock', maybe maybes not, but has it all.

    The Prophets Song - Queen

    Off the 'A Night At The Opera' album, if you've never heard it check it out, it's properly epic!

    Well it doesn't quite fall into the category of videos that you watch with the sound turned off :P Wonder why it's well known in Manchester? :wink:

    Not really my genre but if we are going for epic rock songs then I'd probably choose Bat Out of Hell or Freebird

  • Blinded by the Light by Manfred Mann's Earthband (the long version).
  • Two that pop immediately into mind are Sinnerman by Nina Simone or Master of Puppets by Metallica. Bit of a contrast there I suppose.

    Child In Time - Deep Purple.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Full Metal Jackoff - Jello Biafra with DOA (the best thing in the world, ever)
  • eric_draveneric_draven Posts: 1,182
    Would depend on what mood I an in really
    Metallica - Orion
    Neil Young - Like A hurricane
    Black Sabbath - War Pigs
    Madseason - Wake Up
    Sisters Of Mercy - Lucretia My Reflection
    Metallica - The Four Horsemen
    Pink Floyd - Sorrow

    these are not rock but I really like them all the same

    Chemical Brothers - Out Of Control
    DJ Krush/DJ Shadow - Duality

    to much great music to pick only one

    Peter Green - I've Got a Mind to Give Up Living

    Based on BB King's All Over Again. BB King
    There are many Peter Green tracks that are epic. The blues guitarist that gave BB chills.

    Worried Dream

    This one is only 4 mins long so doesn't meet Goo's criteria, but epic non the less.

    Love that Burns
  • ballysmateballysmate Posts: 13,701
    Goo and Blakey have already posted 2 of my faves, but I would like to add

    Son of Alerik

    Technically not a song but just a jam session.
  • orraloonorraloon Posts: 5,900
    Venturing into blues rock, nominate:

    Sloe Gin by Joe Bonamassa
  • Bit of a weird favourite of mine since I heard it on Tommy Vance's rock show all them years ago - Grendel by Marillion.
    If you're having a tea break, might as well have another coffee and more biscuits.

    Yours Is No Disgrace - Yes
  • mrfpbmrfpb Posts: 4,390
    Eric D. - I forgot about Like A Hurricane - fantastic choice. Lots of Neil young numbers get extended to great lengths on stage, eg Rocking in the Free World.

    In fact just about every song on Weld fits this category
  • CiBCiB Posts: 6,098
    The best have already been nominated; Stargazer, Karn Evil 9.

    Awaken by Yes was the one where I got it, how a song could be better by going on for much longer than normal so that's in, so is And You And I by the same bunch. Love And Only Love by Neil Young is tremendous and fits the time requirement as is and does Joey - Bob Dylan. Stargazer would be first choice tho.

    2112 Overture - Rush

    More of a lunch break track.

    "Weekender", Flowered Up

    A full 10 minutes or so

    And the video is excellent.

    Edit: not really "rock", but hey

    It's just a hill. Get over it.
