Classic Rock Songs With Gong

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

When I think of classic rock drummers I think of massive drum sets - complete, almost laughable, overkill. And nothing completes an over-the-top drum kit better than a gigantic gong, set right behind the drummer. And for even more effect it can be doused with lighter fluid and lit on fire during that one song where the gong is actually employed. The gong is an eastern invention, but Western rock and roll stole it and made it their own. But we need to face facts, the gong doesn't fit in too well with most songs. That's why it's hard to find rock tracks that actually feature one. This playlist includes 10 classic rock songs with gong that I could scrounge up.

Please help expand the list and add any I have missed to the comments.
