King Crimson "Lament" ends with a cool bit:



"Starless" ends with one of the heaviest riffs ever, that starts on John Wetton's bass about a third of the way thru the song. That outro that has it's own outro. BTW, epic Bill Bruford content!

Dangerous Type by The Cars. Elliott Easton and Greg Hawkes just keep adding little bits each time around.
Again, admittedly I’m a Cars wonk. But you are spot on here. Even more impressive is David Robinsons fills.
It just leaves me wanting more as I mimic it on my steering wheel lol

I really like the ending on this live version of Doctor My Eyes.



Also another vote for Kid Charlemagne.

I've listened to this recently and it just caught my attention again where it's like the outro is the best part of the song.

What are some of your favorite outros?

And god I love Stuart Copeland picking it up at 2:48 and the toms at 2:52



Tony Peluso’s guitar solo on the Carpenters’ Goodbye To Love is an outro that is a number in it’s own right. My all time favourite.

Another vote for a John Frusciante outro:




And this one is criminally under-rated (Ian Bairnson: Wuthering Heights):


^ That is a cover of the outro



Forgotten Wuthering Heights, brilliant the way it just fades in under the strings and is suddenly the lead. The bars of five, (or 2 and 3) just add to it’s effect.
