List of rock instrumentals

The following is a list of rock instrumentals, including live performances and drum solos. Firstly, there are tables of music which has charted; then there are longer lists, organized primarily by artist name, then chronologically through the artist's discography.

Instrumentals which have chartedEdit

Instrumental rock is rock music that emphasizes musical instruments and features very little or no singing. An instrumental is a musical composition or recording without lyrics, or singing, although it might include some inarticulate vocals, such as shouted backup vocals in a big band setting.[1][2][3]
