Hey guys, I was just listening to Beat It by Michael Jackson, and I started thinking about how weird that particular song is. It's not really anything like his other songs, and the fact that E.V. does a solo in it is even more kerfuffling.

So I was wondering what solos you guys can think of- like, dislike, whatever- that don't really fit in, either to th song that they're in, or the artist.

I'll start with Beat It by Michael Jackson.

The solo to "Sunshine Of Your Love" and "November Rain".

Really? I think November Rain fits quite well.

The one in the middle of the song does, but the end one just completely killed the mood of the song.

Don't understand what's wrong with November Rain myself, it fits really well.

The solo in Heartbreaker by Zeppelin. Its an awful horrible disgusting solo in one of my fav Zep songs.

Yeah I always thought that too. God, what was he on?
Oh.. wait...

In some older Blink 182 songs, they have this interlude where Tom just strums the same chord for about 16 bars. Not every song needs a solo, but if you can't play one, why make room for one? It's a bit of a waste of time, really.

I love the solo!

but I agree they put it in the wrong song.. It's an amazing song before that..


and I think the solo to Beat it - Fall out Boy is misplaced.. 'cos in comparison to the Van Halen one, it's like a guy who's been playing a week, playing an experienced veteran..

(yes I know John Mayer did the solo.. I hate him )
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

Raining blood by Slayer, Black Hole Sun has a pretty unfitting solo too!


Don't think of your sister naked.

They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

You guys don't like the heartbreaker solo? What? I didn't even realize it was possible. I was under the impression that the solo was universally loved. At least it is where I live.

But on topic I would have to say the solo in Paradise City. The craziest part of it is while Axl is singing and you can barely even hear the guitar unless you are listening for it.

Haha, this vid is in my YouTube favorites, John Mayer is undeniably a fantastic musician, this is more proof than you'll ever need to show it

Nothing wrong with the John Mayer but I can't take you seriously until you change your sig


Your point?

Just watch it, you won't see many performances as good as that one. I can pretty much say that as fact.

Also I love the Goo Goo Dolls, but "Iris" has lame solo. Still a great song though.

The "Come Together" cover MJ did has him just screaming random words from the song. I believe at some point he said "You're a walrus cracka"

The solo in Walk by Pantera.

OMFG Dude.
I feel they same way. it could've been one my favourite songs of all-time, but that solo at the end relegates it to just "great".
On the topic of whiney singers.

But not Robb Flynn, he has epic vocal chords (they're made from barbed wire and gaffer tape).

Black Hole Sun's solo was more of a lead, with a rhythm behind it.
