* The standout aspect of Music/ShiinaRingo's title lengths is usually that the track listings of her albums (after the first one) are entirely symmetrical in their lengths, but a few of her singles have songs that definitely qualify here.

** There's also "Big Church (Megszentségteleníthetetlenségeskedéseitekért)", which isn't as long by letter (or even syllable) count, but it's certainly a mouthful. (The subtitle is Hungarian meaning something like "for your continued behaviour as if you could not be desecrated". Perhaps unsurprisingly, this is one of their songs featuring Hungarian vocalist Attila Csihar, of Music/{{Mayhem}} fame.)

* German black metal band Nagelfar, mostly on the album ''Srontgorrth (Die Macht erfaßte das Meine wie die Angst das Blut der Anderen)''[[note]]a literal translation would be "Power Seized Mine Like Fear the Blood of the Others", but a more comprehensible meaning is "Power Seized My Blood Like Fear Seized the Blood of the Others" (German's case system and other features of the language's grammar make the subtitle comprehensible without the usage of some words that are necessary in English)[[/note]]. These songs have three- or four-part titles, with the first one meaning "chapter (number)", the second one meaning (apart from the title song) one of the seasons (the final song has a phrase meaning "Welcome Home" here), the third with a subtitle, and the fourth (in all but the winter song) being a ''second'' subtitle. The longest of these by itself is "Kapitel Zwei. Der Sommer: Die Existenz jenseits der Tore (Begreifen des Bewußtseins ist Streben nach Wissen)". This translates as "Chapter Two. The Summer: The Existence Beyond the Gates (Understanding of Consciousness Is Striving for Knowledge)". A close runner-up is the final track, "Kapitel Fünf. Willkommen zu Haus (...denn keine Sonne schmelzt mich, das Licht, die Freiheit, den Untergang)", meaning "Chapter Five. Welcome Home (...Because No Sun Melts Me, the Light, the Freedom, the Ruin)". This is further complicated by the fact that the first two songs on the album are also divided into movements: four for the first song and two for the second. (Did we mention that all five songs on the album also qualify for EpicRocking? The ''shortest'' track is 9:19, while the longest is 18:09. The album runs for seventy minutes.) The longest movement title is "Mein Thron auf den Leibern verstorbener Freunde" ("My Throne Upon the Bodies of My Dead Friends"), the first movement of the second song. Beyond this, most of their titles are closer to a normal length, with the main exception being "Der Flug des Raben (Ein Jammerschrei in traurig' Nächten)" ("The Flight of the Ravens (A Cry of Distress in Tragic Nights)"), though the subtitle is only present in certain editions.
