The new Mars Volta album has a song called "Que Dios Te Maldiga, Corazón" ('God Curse You, Sweetheart').

It's fantastic, and under 2 (two!) minutes.

Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles
and perhaps Yesterday, Helter Skelter, Across The Universe
Somebody To Love - Queen
the Montreal, Milton Keynes, and Wembley versions of 'We Are The Champions
Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel
Hello! Hooray! - Alice Cooper

and....since each song is less than five minutes, these qualify, correct? (even though together they total 5:12)

I'm cheating once again, but since this song is only 24 seconds too long, I'm including it!

King Crimson - Sleepless

That Tony Levin bassline is the definition of epic!

It's 5:14 but..
Kiss-Black Diamond
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums................or WTF.  ;D
You know that a mark of a great song is if TAC hates it with a special passion.

but one can fade it out much sooner.......so it qualifies.

Heck....I was going to include 'Detroit Rock City'.....it rocks, it is epic (especially for a Michigander), and if one removes the radio intro...

I couldn't think of a song for this thread, but then Youtube recommended a band to me. It wasn't this song, but I checked out more and this song is epic, and big.

Not sure if anyone other than Ariich would like this, but the ending of Frank Turners latest album is just fucking great. It gives me such goosebumps.

I imagined the story to go more like this.

I was sitting a traffic light blaring Space Dye Vest and next to me in another car was Kevin Moore. And I'll never be open again.

The first movement of Frost's Wonderland fits this description for me.  The piano doesn't kick in until 1 minute in, and the music stops at 5:45 or so.  Yes, the entire track is longer than that, but if you're looking for something that takes less than 5 minutes to hear something that qualifies as having an epic feel, this is what I think of.

A lot of really great suggestions in this thread, Wasteland by 10 Years is something I haven't heard in ages.

"Open Car" by Porcupine Tree is only 3:46, but it's sooo good!

I always loved the live version if the additional little breakdown section.

My submission is going to be Gordian Naught by Animals As Leaders, it's big, epic, and sounds like chaos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw4BkF60o2U

I've been meaning to check them out.  Matt Guillory has mentioned them a few times.

I'm not sure if it totally fits the topic (and it's a little over 5 minutes), but Tesla's "Modern Day Cowboy" has a great ebb and flow and sound pretty epic to my ears.

One that comes to mind is "Goliath" by Karnivool.  So tasty.

For real.  That was the first one that came to mind for me.  I'll also add:

Queensryche: Screaming in Digital
Faith No More: Epic
Karnivool: Synops
Muse: Apocalypse Please, Stockholm syndrome
A Perfect Circle: The Outsider

I see what you did there...   :)

Kinda surprised more people didn't, honestly. :-\
