100 Greatest Really Long Rock Songs

Criteria: Songs must be 10 minutes or longer. This means on their original release either on an album, EP or a single - remixes do not count. Songs were chosen and ranked based on initial and lasting popularity, acclaim and influence. Live versions of songs that were less than 10 minutes when done first in the studio were only included if they became significant in their own right. Songs that reached 10 minutes only because of an extended jam at the end will receive less credit than songs that legitimately exceeded 10 minutes without an extended jam. Also, songs that were edited down and also issued in a shorter version will lose some credit.
