    Dragonforce 'Through The fire And Flames' not strictly an instrumental but wait for the guitar solos and prepare to be amazed.

    Toss up between Rush, and ELO, but ELO won out because Rush is too mainstream, and way too overplayed.

    LOL

    I've been a Rush fan for over 20 years and seen them live over 40 times. This is the first time I've ever heard them described as too mainstream and overplayed.

    And fwiw, I hear Fire on High played on the radio with considerably greater frequency than YYZ.

    I can't imagine choosing my favorite rock instrumental, but how about Tarcus by Emerson Lake and or Palmer?
