What are the best Rock-n-Roll songs about or related to Fantasy Fiction? Please stick to Rock-n-Roll. Sorry if you're a huge fan, but Enya is NOT Rock-n-Roll. I'll get us started with some obvious entries (Please list artist followed by track title then comment):

Led Zeppelin
Ramble On
A tribute to Tolkien's poetry & LOTR. Runner up mention to Misty Mountain Hop and The Battle of Evermore.

Jimi Hendrix
All Along The Watchtower
Musical imagery equivalent to a Frazetta drawing. A shout out to Bob Dylan, but Hendrix and the Experience infuse Dylan's composition with the power it needs to be a Fantasy classic.

Jefferson Airplane
White Rabbit
The definitive link between the 60's counter-culture and Fantasy Literature. Zeppelin transported us from present day into a fantasy world. Airplane dragged the fantasy world into present day.

Is Leonard Nimoy's The Ballard of Bilbo Baggins Rock and Roll?

Are we counting metal?

If so, then pretty much all of Battlelore's discography - inspired by and based on Tolkien.

This classical song is better sometimes i think, listening and enjoying it.

Always enjoy seeing pictures of Spock giving Kirk the mind meld business. I've attempted to do the vulcan mind meld manuever on our family cats. To my surprise, neither cat was amused. :D
