Just wandering what you guys think the oddest breaks and solos are in songs. In breaks, I'd have to say Motley Crue's Live Wire. In oddest solos......well, still thinking on that one.

Some of Thals stuff have odd solos that are genius at the same time.

alot of Zappa and King Crimson's 21st Century Schizoid Man. Both have weird breaks and solos and both are pure genious.

Whole Lotta Love is just plain ****ed up before the solo but it's one of Zeppelin's best songs.

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.


it's true

The Thing That Should Not Be - Metallica

Really cool song and a really cool solo.
Quote by hepzibahbaptist
Yeah listen to Apoc. He knows what he's talking about.

Real by Bumblefoot perplexes me...I love it so. Also Revenge of the Bambi Loving Terrorist is just plain weird the entire way through. Gotta love IA though.

Solo to "Don't Fear The Reaper" - Blue Oyster Cult

Solo to "In This River" - Black Label Society

Intro to "Fight Fire With Fire" - Metallica

EDIT: Whoops, shred forum, and I didn't post shred. sorry....nonetheless, those are weird ones.


I was actually thinking about Blue Oyster Cult's weird solo. For me, that just completely messed that song up, but I love the way he goes back into the
intro from the lead solo. If you ask me, most of Zeppelin's songs are weird.

Whole lotta love.... That solo and the break ruins the whole song...
#13
A lot of Frederick Thordendal's (meshuggah) solos are pretty odd

My favorite solo is probably Buckethead's on the song Buckethead

Jackson DKMG Dinky
Yamaha Eg 112
Strella acoustic
Dunlop Craybaby
Electro Harmonix big Muff

how come no one has mentioned The Mars Volta? anyways, you can't get much weirder solo's than Rage Against the Machine/Audioslave although it's not shred..

The first time i heard about Granny Sluts 16 on DVD i was like OMG AWESOME.I feel like they made it just for me, then after i saw it the black granny at the end just makes me feel really awkward and depressed

The solo and end of Dream Theater's Misunderstood could be called odd, I suppose. Both kind of ruined the song for me...

Whatever he's doing at the end of Misunderstood is pretty sweet I think. Is he just pick scraping with wah and delay or something?

Yep. There's a making of Misunderstood vid that shows him doing just that. I always thought that part went on a bit too long, but I'm probably just being nitpicky.

Yeah, Morello has some odd solos. Audioslave's Bring 'Em Back Alive is probably my favorite of his solos... not really sure why though.

Too obvious. TMV = my favorite band that's "weird" and one of my favorite band altogether

Guess you've never heard any Daevid Allen, John Cage, Edgar Varèse, Cecil Taylor...
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.


Remember: A prudent question is one half of wisdom.

No, I know, I'm extremely naive in the area, I don't know any better, I just posted the first thing that came to my mind.

What about that breaking part in "Rocket" from Def Leppard? Not only was that a little strange, but it seemed to last forever!
#27
The psychadelic saxophone solo in 21st Century Schizoid Man. So out of place, yet so fucking brilliant!
When I heard smoking would kill me, I bought shares in Dunhill and Marlboro - Thomas Geraghty

If we don't change it, nothing will fucking change.
#28
Oddest solo- either Dream Theater (John Petrucci) Beyond ThisLife at3:10
or Megadeth (Marty Friedman) Five Magics 2:58
...AJFA!!!!!!


(The Black Album was a "new musical direction," (albeit a very gay one); whereas St. Anger was more of an abomination upon mankind.)

All of Spidercrawl by Buckethead. That's right biotch, the whole freaking song wierds me out. But I still find myself listening to it alot anyway
