probably Dopesmoker by Sleep, but there may be a song i've heard that's longer than that since I'm just naming that off the top of my head because I don't feel like going through my music to find the longest song

Twenty, four. hours.

That's just not impressive at all. You obviously did not see my other post.

Possibly "Tulimirsky" byMoonsorrow. It's around 30 minutes.

I don't believe for a second that you've sat and listened to that whole thing.

As it happens I recently listened to the Fushitsusha Black Box in its entirety, around seven hours, on one of my day's off work.

No, but that was the point I was trying to make to MikeyS9607. I don't believe for one minute that he listened to a 24 hour long song! If you're going to requote me, at least use my quotes in the context which they were intended. And obviously I haven't been listening to a song for near on 13 years. I already posted above my list of long songs listened to.

Okay I wont bug you about it anymore. I just wanted to make a point that it would be damn near impossible to sit and listen to a song thats that long. Although a 24 hour long song DOES sound manageable though. That is if you're bored enough and if you have nothing that needs to be done for an entire day.

Like a Wall in Which an Insect Lives and Gnaws by Bull of Heaven, it's 5 years, 8 months, 13 days and 20 hours long, but since I haven't listened to it, it doesn't really count.

Second place would be Jethro Tull's Thick as a brick, which is around 44 minutes long.

Third place is Cassandra Gemini by The Mars Volta, it's around 33 minutes long.

I don't know about listened to, per se, but I saw the Michael Jackson "Thriller" video and that one lasts about thirteen minutes. It's probably the longest music video I've ever seen. I know the longest one is "Ghosts", also by him, which I should check out sometime. I have sung the "100 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall" song and for me, it lasts about fifteen minutes.

I'm talking about songs that you have heard in it's. There is no way someone will be able to listen to every second of a song that lasts a millennium .

I'm not sure. I heard that from my father, but I'm sure you can find the answer somewhere...Maybe?

The teacher the name was based on is Leonard Skinner. Legend has it that he was always on their back because of their long hair, so when naming their band, they thought it would be funny to name it after someone who was totally against everything they were. But they changed the vowels so they didn't get sued!
