Now I'm not comparing these songs to Bohemian Rhapsody by any means, but for the given bands, these are probably IMO their most epic, many-part-containing, bohemian rhapsody-esque tracks.
Great song from an equally great album.
Jesus of Suburbia
My least-favorite of the songs on this list, although it is still pretty epic for Green Day.
This is perhaps one of my favorite songs I've heard in awhile. It's pretty much the reason I picked up the CD of the same name recently, and it some some good shit.
Pay the Man
Not as many parts as some of the other ones on here, but still plenty epic and VERY experimental as far as The Offspring are concerned.
Now I know everyone on this website jizzes in their pants over Radiohead, and I gotta say I'm not really as big into them as most, but this is still a damn impressive song.
A Day in the Life
Now this song came out well before Bohemian Rhapsody, so maybe I should've retitled the list "Days in the Life" or something else that sounds like a soap opera and put Bohemian Rhapsody on the list instead, but w/e too late now. Also, this is a track which features a rare legit collaboration between Lennon and McCartney in the same song.
This song goes all over the place - grunge-ish rock, moderate ska, upbeat ska, and even this odd little slow breakdown part - and all in under 3 minutes. This is definitely one of the best songs in Sublime's collection.
Even though I said that STP goes all over the place, it's got nothing on 88. Holy shit, 88 is the balls and is IMO the best track in Sum 41's collection. Here's the song's rundown: it starts out with a very catchy punk riff, then has an abrupt ballad section before shifting into pop-punk madness. After the pop-punk section (which includes a mini-solo) concludes, the song has a double-bass driven breakdown and then just explodes into a staight up thrashy punkish finale. Although this may seem like plenty to cover in an album (let alone a song), as the hooker-beating Vince Offer would say, "but wait there's more." After you think the song's over, there's about a minute-and-a-half of creepy eeriness with just deryck and a VERY distorted guitar. What a sick way to finish off the "Chuck" album and this list. 88 is the shit.
|another horrible list sublimefan list|
how do you do it
|GODDAMMIT now he can use my typos against me |
most of these are still terrible though
|@mrporchular - which ones are terrible??? please specifically enlighten me. i'll give you 2 being bad and 4 being aight, but all the other ones i am not ashamed to say i like at all. i legit think you just see the band and just assume it's gonna be a terrible song, but how about you actually listen to some of the songs on here? like what the hell's wrong w/ "tragic kingdom" or "88" or "paranoid android," etc...?|
|I've heard them all except the Coldplay one and 5 and 6 are the only good songs here|
|5 and 6 are amazing|
|Wait... how long would you wait?|
|...just for me to call.|
|Jesus of Suburbia, isn't really a rhapsody :p|
42 Ftw. I love that riff. Other than that, not bad list.
|I agree with 5 and 6 the other I argue that sucks|
|YES. MY FAVORITE USER|
