    I thought, okay, it's kinda hard for me to do a top song list, I just like way too many songs. But as the 101 rules of power metal opens with, I always love a song that's epic. Whether it tells a story, is long as fuck, or breaks out an orchestra more than once, there's nothing better to me than a band deciding to be overblown for the hell of it.

    without further ado, let's name a band and name their most epic songs!

    Adagio



    After Forever



    Age of Artemis




    Avantasia





    And after all that, we've only done the letter A :P

    You couldn't measure the fucks I give with bacteria, Deku :P, Now either contribute or get the fuck out, as I can only deal with so much of your histrionics before I get a migraine.



    (can't really get much more epic than a one song album)

    You couldn't measure your dick size with bacteria.

    Also, that's called a single.

    He means "epic" in the correct sense of "grand and sweeping" in this contex, so he's by no means a faggоt.

    False: singles usually have two or three songs. Two historically: an A and a B side; three more often in the digital age.

    At the least the one song album thing is closer to the literal definition of epic.

    Let's not go that far.

    My bad. But I'm just harassing you guys anyway.

    make sure to watch the video for this one, it fits the "overblown for the hell of it" criteria perfectly

    I dunno, I've heard a lot of people talk about how they love Kesha's music. I'd never argue that Taylor Swift doesn't suck, and has unearned respect for her crap, but I'm not sure if she's worse than Kesha.

    Back on topic though:
