Dearly beloved, are you listening?

One of the first epic songs I recall from my youth was “Rime Of The Ancient Mariner” by Iron Maiden. Not in the sense of EPIC, but “epic” as in long poem. It’s rare to see an artist/band actually perform an epic song live, even if they do have one on an album. Probably because the lyrics aren’t repetitive, the song is hard to remember, or the fans just don’t like it. Hence, it seems those epic songs come few and far between.

I would consider the following an epic song. This is probably one of my favorite songs from some of the latest stuff by Green Day. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but hey, it’s my blog. Deal with it. 😉

(A better quality live but non-embeddable version is here. And the official video is here.)

What songs do you consider “epic”? Or how about EPIC?

Until next time...
