Steve Vai and Joe Satriani have the best rock instrumentals.. Just at the top of my head try these songs:
Joe Satriani: Surfing With the Alien, The Extremist, Satch Boogie.
Steve Vai: Bad Horsie, Erotic Nightmares, Juice, Building the Church

Those have to be my favourites.. although there are alot of others. Have fun!

personally i rather like dream theater's dance of eternity. also another good one is emerson, lake & palmer's eruption which sounds a bit similar.

Steve Vai - Blue Powder
Yngwie Malmsteen - Icarus suite opus 4
Hands down best instrumentals ever recorded ever...
I don't care how fast they play those tracks have serious emotion and arent just wankfests.
And this should be in the bands and artists forum not CR.

Dude calm down, besides the title of the Thread is "best instrumental rock song??" Rock, not classic rock.
