6. Steve Vai “For the Love of God”
This guitar piece off of Vai’s 1990 album, Passion and Warfare, was recorded on the fourth day of a ten-day fast because the guitarist wanted to push himself into an altered state of consciousness. The track was voted #29 in a reader’s poll of the 100 greatest guitar solos of all time for the magazine Guitar World.


5. Led Zeppelin “Moby Dick”
The song off of 1969’s Led Zeppelin II contains one of the most famous and memorable drum parts and solos in rock history (played by the legendary John Bonham). To this day it is a staple for all rock drummers and the song holds up as a classic in the band’s catalogue.
