    Default Top 10 Greatest Rock and Roll Song Endings of All Time

    https://www.guitarworld.com/artists/...dings-all-time

    06. “Shy Boy,” David Lee Roth
    Vai, Sheehan. Sheehan, Vai. When David Lee Roth combined the talents of these two stringmen, he unleashed the shred equivalent of a nuclear fission reaction. The furious four-handed tapping makes one realize the importance of science to our daily lives.


    03. “Hot for Teacher,” Van Halen
    Eddie uses his space-age finger slides and tremolo picking to sound like a laser weapon battle from a late-Seventies sci-fi flick, while brother Alex runs in place on his double bass pedals and David Lee Roth howls till his heart’s content. You don’t have to be Freud to figure out what pubescent fantasy an ending of this magnitude symbolizes. Orgasm. Oh, my gawd.

    Both Great! I would through “One Foot Out the Door” and “Mean Street” in there too!

    How about this one?

    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    I'd vote for Hotel California. I absolutely hate that song so I'm always super stoked when it's over...

    I’d throw Drop Dead Legs out there, it’s just a stellar groove and Ed’s playing and kicks are perfect. Not flashy, just a bluesy groove with relaxed playing. The ending of this song is s song in and of itself

    The ending to this one doesn't suck …

    VH are masters of the ending, as they are of the intro, bridge, chorus, outro.

    Hot For Teacher is a great example of how to end a VH song.

    “Oh my God!”
