No GNR? November Rain? Paradise City? Cmon man.

Good call.

Also, The Beatles "A Day In The Life".

"Sweet Emotion" - Aerosmith

Loop - Black Sun

speaker-panning madness.

In Barbershop, we call 'em "Tags."

Do a YouTube search on "Barbershop Tag."

I was always partial to the end of "More Than This".
 
2012-07-07 09:58:37 PM  
Does the bass solo at the end of "Don't Give Up" by Peter Gabriel count? Cuz that's the stuff...
 
2012-07-07 09:59:54 PM  
The end of Metallica's One
 
2012-07-07 10:03:06 PM  
"Hey Jude" isn't even the Beatles' most epic outro. "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" is. Torn up rather well by the Eric Gales Band, too.
 
2012-07-07 10:03:11 PM  
While probably not worthy of "best ever" lists, I think Muse makes great use of the outro. Micro Cuts, Space Dementia, Citizen Erased, and Knights of Cydonia come to mind.

No Springsteen and Racing In The Streets? Fail.
 
2012-07-07 10:10:20 PM  
No "Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding?"

Or "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant"? (although to be fair, that is actually a Sonata)

SilentStrider: The end of Metallica's One


"One" belongs on the list of songs from your favorite artists that was ruined for you by being overplayed and turned into a trendy thing by retarded locust-like microcephalics.

/Metallica was more of an "awesome intro" band anyway
 
2012-07-07 10:10:56 PM  
Ozzy- Bark at the Moon..

Absolutely smoking outro.
Zakk Wylde only wishes he could solo like Jake E. Lee.
 
2012-07-07 10:11:47 PM  
List fails big time with "Comfortably Numb".
 
2012-07-07 10:12:22 PM  
Outro by The Absence.

You haven't heard it.

Pincy: List fails big time with "Comfortably Numb".


Dammit, that should be "without", but you already knew that, didn't you?
 
2012-07-07 10:13:11 PM  
Ugh... I HATE the outro to Layla. It goes on longer than the rest of the freaking song!
 
2012-07-07 10:13:46 PM  
ELO Mr. Blue Sky. There's a ton of great outros out there, but Mr. Blue Sky is my fave.

The wife goes with Backstreets

Was going to post this -- great on album, but amazing live. Check out this version from Live in Hyde Park -- just goes on and on. Amazing performance!

List fails for a number of reasons directly related to my personal taste, but "Achilles' Last Stand" was a good pick.
 
2012-07-07 10:21:36 PM  
Metallica's "Fade To Black." Jesus, Kirk Hammett is a great guitar player. Also agree with "One" as well.

After a few bong of bong rips, at 3:02 of this song you pretty much enter outer space.

/if anyone were so inclined.
 
2012-07-07 10:39:13 PM  
And Eric Clapton playing While My Guitar Gently Weeps at the Albert Hall in the tribute to George Harrison, with Ringo and McCartney and a few dozen others, is great as well.
 
2012-07-07 10:40:26 PM  
This is the first thing that came to mind. It might not be the best, but it's definitely EPIC.
Outro starts around 4:55.
 
2012-07-07 10:40:57 PM  
Sheep - Pink Floyd
Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne
Black - Pearl Jam
Three Days - Janes Addiction
Epic - Faith No More
War Pigs - Black Sabbath
Hotel California - Eagles
Fade to Black - Metallica
Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits
Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

Sexy Results by Death From Above 1979 was always really cool to me. I don't know why the link is 9 minutes, but the outro starts about 3:30

bad_ed: I was always partial to the end of "More Than This".


I always thought that was the weakest cut on the album. The hook is kind of boring and the whole thing smacks of trying to recapture "Red Rain" with more distortion.

If I had to pick a great PG outro, I'd go for "Secret World".
For Genesis, I'd pick "Inside And Out".

Deddude9988: Ugh... I HATE the outro to Layla. It goes on longer than the rest of the freaking song!


Jesus Christ. That whole dipshiat song is a big pile of stupid and stink. To comprehend its magnitude of suckage is mentally and emotionally draining.

Lies - Violent Femmes

Fleetwood Mac, 'The Chain'

One minute you're tapping your toe to some witchy folk/blues mantra, the next you're hearing Murray Walker and Martin Brundle marvelling at Michael Schumacher's fuel ratio.


I wish I was hip enough to understand wtf that means.
/Don't know any of those people.
//Love the Mac
 
2012-07-07 10:52:34 PM  
Thinking "the chain" and "i am the resurrection"

*checks article*

Sh*t, whaddaya know?
 
2012-07-07 10:55:48 PM  
no Floods, or Hollow, by Pantera?

I r dissapoint.
 
2012-07-07 10:56:13 PM  
Layla is the one where I always forget which song is playing and then realize which song is playing and get annoyed with all the disparate elements in that rattletrap.

The outro from The Chain has been the theme music for the BBC F1 coverage for years. Almost anyone British hearing it will think F1 just like anyone American will hear the William Tell overture and think of the Lone Ranger.

Prince's is better imho.

Always enjoyed Hotel California outro
 
2012-07-07 11:05:23 PM  
Seriously, no one mentioned Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody??
 
2012-07-07 11:06:51 PM  
And, if they must include a Fleetwood Mac tune, why not the farrrrrrrr superior Oh, Well from the group's first makeup.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rN4FMVqq1cg

And the Smashing Pumpkins' Drown

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGDzsds4Ll0

And Sonic Youth's The Diamond Sea:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3i8MSfRq_E (Part 1)

wish there was one complete file on youtube post-maximum-length-extension but there isn't.
 
2012-07-07 11:14:31 PM  
I know this is a little off the radar,so it probably doesn't qualify, but "Lay Low" from My Morning Jacket is pretty strong.

"Outro" is sort of hard to pin down...but I think my all-time favorite is "Cross the Breeze" from Sonic Youth. The tension in that song is just farking off the charts.

Two good examples from Black Sabbath:
Heaven and Hell
Symptom of the Universe

Coma was pretty cool too, but I guess it was never a single or played at all on radio.
