Sometimes you have to go out with a bang - Radio X picks a selection of great songs that brought the curtain down on a great album.

  1. Radiohead - Street Spirit (Fade Out)

    A low-key finale, but a gem - the final track on the classic album The Bends.

  2. The Stone Roses - I Am The Resurrection

    The Roses' debut album comes to a memorable conclusion with this rifftastic classic.

  3. Oasis - Champagne Supernova

    After the world-beating bluster of Morning Glory, this is a more introspective ending to one of the biggest records in history.

  4. Nirvana - All Apologies

    The last track on the last Nirvana album, In Utero. Poignant.

  5. Arctic Monkeys - A Certain Romance

    A fine end to a fine debut album, 2006's Whatever People Say That's What I'm Not.

  6. The Beatles - Tomorrow Never Knows

    The final, game-changing song on the peerless Revolver album. After this, rock music would never be the same again.

  7. The Rolling Stones - You Can't Always Get What You Want

    The inspiring, gospel-tinged finale to the Stones' finest outing, 1969's Let It Bleed.

  8. The Libertines - What Became Of The Likely Lads?

    The Libs closed the door on their recording career with this moving tribute to the Barat/Doherty songwriting partnership.

  9. The Clash - Train In Vain

    The epic double album from the punk pioneers ended with this upbeat track that wasn't listed on the original album. What a nice surprise!

  10. David Bowie - Rock 'N' Roll Suicide

    Bowie ritually "kills off" his alter ego at the end of the classic concept album The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars.
