There goes the challenger
bein' chased by the blue, blue meanies on wheels
the vicious traffic squad cars are after the last american hero
the -- the electric scimitar -- the demi-god!
The super driver of the golden west!
Two nasty nazi cars are close behind our beautiful lone driver
The police cars are getting closer-closer...
Closer to our soul hero in his soul mobile! yeah baby!
They about to strike, they gonna get him! SLASH: rape!
The last beautiful free soul on this planet

But...
it is written
if the evil spirit armed the tiger with claws
Brahmann provided wings for the dove
Thus spake the super guru

did you hear that?

bdub77: No GNR?

I'm sure this won't appeal to anyone here who is too close-minded to appreciate the musical merits of progressive metal, but for people who listen to a truly broad range of music I can't think of a better outro than Selkies: The Endless Obsession by Between the Buried and Me.

Between the Buried and Me - Selkies: The Endless Obsession

If you don't like aggressive music, just skip the first half of the song and go to 3:45. If you aren't moved by the latter part of the song, you may have no soul.

Bold as Love by Hendrix.

No mention of Jools Holland's piano outro on "Uncertain Smile" by The The? And I thought nothing was obscure on FARK.

Also Tears for Fears' Hey Jude-esque outro on "Who Killed Tangerine" deserves some love.

axeeugene: Pincy: List fails big time without "Comfortably Numb".

I'll see your "Comfortably Numb" and raise you one outtro to Pigs, which utterly destroys any other Pink Floyd outtro (even "Have A Cigar"). FFWD to about 9:30, those of you not looking for 11 full minutes of prog rock...


seeing as how Pigs is probably one of the best songs ever recorded
it's kind of hard to say the "outro" is any better than the rest of it.
Glancing at your screenname I can tell you don't need to be told that though.
I love the pig solo SO MUCH!

Alice Cooper "Grand Finale" on Schools Out. Awesome instrumental meld that ties the whole album together

Don't forget Bobby Keys' sax solo.

/My favorite Stones song BTW.

Ouch.

111 posts in and no one has mentioned Whirring by Joy Formiddable. It starts about 2:50 and really gets rolling around 3:20 and the afterburners kick on around 3:50.

I always liked the outro of RHCP's "Sir Psycho Sexy" on BSSM. They should have ended the album with that. It's stupendously powerful, and fun to play along with besides.
 
2012-07-08 05:35:46 AM

darch: Actually there are a few Tool tunes that have some pretty intense freakout's at the end.


I know the pieces fit

The outro on Jane Doe by Converge is the reason magnetic tape and microphones were invented. I'm probably alone on this.
 
2012-07-08 06:36:53 AM
King's X has some great outros. A couple of my favourites:
Prisoner
We Were Born to Be Loved

eaglepuss: Thank God I'm not the only one who thinks whoever has that out of tune guitar in the outro to Layla should be killed. That has bothered me for years but most people don't even hear it!


I like the outtro, mostly because I always think of the scene in "Goodfellas," where you're seeing everybody dead who was associated with the airplane heist.

Yes indeed.

The outro of There Was A Time off of Chinese Democracy is pretty awesome.

The outro/solo on Comfortably Numb has consistently been voted in the top 5
best guitar solos for I dunno the last 3 decades and this rube does not even get it
onto his list. LIST FAIL HARD.

That would be Duane Allman. Maybe it's a Southern thing, but that's always been one of my favorite songs.

SDRR: The outro of There Was A Time off of Chinese Democracy is pretty awesome.


There's a lot of discussion to be done about that album that I'm not going to put here. Some of the tracks are alright, all of the melodies are much more complex than the simple, aggressive, hard rock style of Appetite, that track you mentioned might even be one of the only ones i've permanently checked off to never ever hear again.

bdub77: November Rain? Paradise City?


I rarely start Appetite at track 1, I always start at #2 and wouldn't care less if I never heard Appetite Paradise City or any version November Rain ever again. Both entirely too overplayed in the 90s.

Axl deserves to own GNR, it was his creation. (Read Duff's book.) It was central vs. west coast; axl rose out of bumfark Indiana and took on the world, and won. The rest were musicians; Axl Rose (oral sex) is an artist and he absolutely destroyed hair band rock.

/what other 80s bands are still touring the world nonstop
//crickets

/and they played as 'The Fargin Bastiges' (yes, JD Fargin Bastiges) to get around their newly signed Geffen contract back in '86 - L0L

Oddly Enough: Starship Trooper by Yes.


Also the live version of Perpetual Change.
 
2012-07-08 09:32:24 AM

84Charlie: Ozzy- Bark at the Moon..

Absolutely smoking outro.
Zakk Wylde only wishes he could solo like Jake E. Lee.


But instead, he does it in front of people, while getting paid.

Yay for the third time.
That song gave me religion. Religion of music.
 
2012-07-08 10:03:38 AM
With this being NME, I'm surprised Freebird even made it onto the list. Totally not hip enough.

Glaring omissions include "This Corrosion" by Sisters of Mercy, "Telegraph Road" by Dire Straits and "Changing of the Guard" by Exodus.

Ok, if I could reply to more than one person per post, I would. Phone makes it so difficult that it's not worth it.

Yay to the power of 4. Tool.

This Is The Life- Living Colour

Legendary intro, legendary close out. The best song you never heard.


YES!!!! THIS!!!!

Time's Up is one of the best albums no one remembers. Ology into Fight the Fight... shiver. Vernon Reid's intro to FtF is so beautiful it brings tears to my eyes everytime I listen to it.
 
2012-07-08 11:17:42 AM
As an instrumentalist, I hate the words "intro" and "outro".

They imply that a song is just the singing part, and the rest is filler.

Given that there's absolutely NO instrumental musicianship in newer songs, it appears the notion that only the words count caught on.

I bet singers complain the same about the "solo". Well, at least they did, when music still had 'em.
