Greatest Rock Song Ever?

Probably not, but a classic nonetheless.

I mean what other song includes the following?:
grinding guitars, a funky bass line, pounding drums, flutes, a Hammond organ, an accordian, whistling, gibberish lyrics, and... yodeling.
Yes, yodeling.

None other than the epic "Hocus Pocus" by the band Focus.
Oh sure, Jethro Tull might've used flutes but did they yodel? No, they didn't. So there.

The song is pretty crazy as it is, but they played it even faster when they performed it live.

2 things people had to say:

Which is weird, because I could have sworn that the GRSE was "It Never Rains in Caifornia."
