PostSubject: songs with bad endings index   Fri Sep 11, 2015 11:38 pm

The last version of this thread was absolutely loaded with bullshit. I'm not going to make any generalisations about fade-outs or endless choruses or whatever.

Songs where the ending isn't really bad, but it just doesn't fit the song:
Porcupine Tree/"Fear of a Blank Planet"
The Beatles/"A Hard Day's Night"
Thom Yorke/"The Eraser"

Otherwise great songs with bad endings:
Black Sabbath/"Children of the Grave"
Black Sabbath/"Hole in the Sky"
Black Sabbath/"War Pigs"
Golden Earring/"Radar Love"
Iron Maiden/"Die with Your Boots On"
Kansas/"Mysteries and Mayhem"
Loverboy/"Working for the Weekend"
Queen/"One Vision"
Queen/"We are the Champions"
Scorpions/"Blackout"

Otherwise good songs with bad endings:
Adam Lambert/"Whole Lotta Love"
Aerosmith/"Round and Round"
Aerosmith/"Critical Mass"
Annihilator/"Word Salad"
Arctic Monkeys/"Crying Lightning"
Billy Squier/"Don't Say No"
Coldplay/"Low"
Deep Purple/"Chasing Shadows"
Metallica/"The Memory Remains"
Motorhead/"Capricorn"
Queens of the Stone Age/"I Think I Lost My Headache"
Red Hot Chili Peppers/"Funky Monks"
Sonic Youth/"Mote"
Supergrass/"Evening of the Day"
Tesla/"Time"

Mediocre songs with bad endings:
Aerosmith/"Livin' on the Edge"
AFI/"Halloween"
Arctic Monkeys/"The Bad Thing"
Depeche Mode/"Blasphemous Rumours"
Ozzy Osbourne/"Can You Hear Them?"

Terrible songs with even worse endings:
Deep Purple/"Child in Time"
Nirvana/"Smells Like Teen Spirit"
The Beatles/"Strawberry Fields Forever"

Songs that have a false ending that would have been better than the "real" ending:
Alice in Chains/"Rain When I Die"
Black Sabbath/"Heaven and Hell"
Emerson, Lake, and Palmer/"Take a Pebble"
Foo Fighters/"New Way Home"
Foo Fighters/"Next Year"
Skid Row/"Midnight/Tornado"

Songs that house a hidden track that is far, far worse than the main track:
Bon Jovi/"Sympathy"
Tenacious D/"City Hall"

Songs that reprise a prior track at the end, which completely kills the mood of the song:
Queens of the Stone Age/"In the Fade"

Edits that fuck everything up by hacking off the best part:
Lynyrd Skynyrd/"Freebird" [single version]
The Beatles/"Get Back" [Let it Be/Let it Be... Naked versions]

Times when Harmonix or Neversoft eliminated a fade-out and ended up giving the song a bad ending:
Blue Oyster Cult/"Don't Fear the Reaper" [Rock Band]
Bon Jovi/"Livin' on a Prayer" [Guitar Hero: World Tour]
Judas Priest/"You've Got Another Thing Comin" [Rock Band DLC]
The Beatles/"Michelle" [Rock Band: The Beatles]
The Jimi Hendrix Experience/"Bold as Love" [Rock Band DLC]
The Jimi Hendrix Experience/"Castles Made of Sand" [Rock Band DLC]
The Jimi Hendrix Experience/"Spanish Castle Magic" [Rock Band DLC]
Twisted Sister/"I Wanna Rock" [Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the '80s]

Wavegroup covers with bad endings:
David Bowie/"Ziggy Stardust" [Guitar Hero]

Although I feel like Midnight is far and away the superior part of the song, Tornado has kind of grown on me, but I guess I wouldn't miss it if it were removed. I also wholly agree on Rain When I Die, and will have to add Helter Skelter for the same reason. Fade-outs are iffy, but fade-ins are horrible.

I will also have to add "The Bad Thing" by Arctic Monkeys on the list of good songs with bad endings. Too abrupt, too lazy, especially on a song that could arguably be considered a filler song compared to the rest of the album.

I also feel like "Time" by Tesla is a bit annoying. I don't know if I dislike it to the point of considering it bad, but it definitely deserves a mention.

And although the song is by far Porcupine Tree's best ever, the weakest part of "Fear of a Blank Planet" is definitely the last part.

I probably have a few more, but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Helter Skelter is saved at the last moment by Ringo's "I've got blisters on my fingers" scream. I can't put it on the list because of that.

I added all your other suggestions, though. You're completely right, except I was a bit harsher on Time.

Doesn't Strawberry Fields Forever do the same thing as Helter Skelter? Though I think Helter Skelter's ending is worse than SFF, ringo's scream does save it.

I would much rather have a fadeout than a random hard stop. Chasing Shadows by Deep Purple is a pretty bad offender of this.

And though most of you haven't listened to Stark Reality, ALL of their songs end by turning into free jazz garbage.

For example, here is a song that takes a full 45 seconds to end.

I always forget about Strawberry Fields Forever, since I absolutely loathe the original version. I only ever listen to the Love version.

I added it and Chasing Shadows, but the ending was the best part of that Stark Reality song.

There is more


Low by Coldplay is a huge culprit in this category, the actual song is so infinitely much better than the ending.

Word Salad by Annihilator also has a pretty unnecessary ending, wrecking face with a whammy bar into a fade-out is uncool

Mysteries and Mayhem's outro by Kansas is just a big wat

I will keep on posting stuff I find
