Wednesday Question: Best Rock/Metal Song With Saxophone
The time has come for the very first Wednesday Question of 2017! We decided to kick this one off with a pinch of sax and ask ya this:

What's the greatest rock or metal song to feature a saxophone?

Make sure that your favorite falls into the category of rock and metal and that the sax is used at some point and you're all good. Apart from that, standard rules apply.

  • Post only one suggestion per comment after checking that your favorite wasn't already nominated (Ctrl+F and all).
  • Multiple nominations of one song create heavy confusion, since on one hand it's unfair to the given track to take into consideration only the most upvoted nomination, but seeing that multiple nominations allow one user to give two or more votes to the same tune, it's also unfair to other nominees not to discard it.
  • Vote up the ideas you support and vote down the ones you dislike.
We'll sum up your votes by Friday and bring you another traditional UG top list. Show us what you got now!

    For me it's Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond. Also one of my favourite songs ever.
    As well as all of the sax work on Dark Side Of The Moon.
    Agreed, can't go wrong with sax and Floyd, I was going to suggest "Us and Them" always been a favorite of mine.
    King Crimson - 21st Century Schizoid Man for me. I always really like Catharsis by Ihsahn with Jorgen Munkeby on Sax.
    Since you invalidated your nomination by putting another song in the same comment, I'd just like to say... 21st Century Schizoid Man.
    Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street
    My 11 year old learned that riff on sax last week on his own. Very proud dad here.
    Envious of that dads pride. Go kid! Congrats man always cool if a kid takes interest in music, especially if your fond of said music.
    Arfing Thumb
    Not only one of the best saxophone parts in a rock song, but also one of the most iconic saxophone riffs in music!
    The sax riff on this song is my favourite guitar solo ever. Yeah, I meant every word.
    TESSERACT - Calabi Yau
    This. Without a doubt. Saxophone player myself, I never would have dreamed that this instrument fits progressive metal so good. This song is stellar.
    This is an awesome track no doubt, but my favourite Chris Barretto Sax moment has to go for his live intro to Monuments' track "Garden Of Sankhara" especially this version. (0:58 to 2: 00)
    I remember the first time I heard this and my mind was quite literally blown. Not only was it something that was kind of odd in context (sax in a "djent" tune), it was also expertly performed and a perfect fit for the band's style.
