    For me, two songs come to mind: "Hotel California" and "Comfortably Numb".

    What are your picks for the songs with the best-ever outro?

    Red House Painters - Katy Song -- I'm always partial to a good la la la coda (see Hey Jude) and this one is just lubberly, too.

    Starts at about the 4:30 mark.

    Wishbone Ash - Throw down the sword

    I’m not that keen on the song, but I like the way Green Days ‘Boulevard of Broken dreams’ ends.

    I love the Framptonesque (played by Keith Scott) outro on Bryan Adams' "Heaven". There are lots of others, but that one came to mind first.

    Easy, King's X with We Were Born to Be Loved, only a really tight band could do this.
    Outro starts around 3.00.

    TheGoodDoctor It used to go something like that

    I’ve always had a soft spot for the Layla outro

    also the outro to November Rain by Guns n Roses is better than the actual song itself.

    The Airplane's "Hey Frederick" from Volunteers, that chunky, bass and guitar, power chord, fuzzed out coda.

    Total heaviosity is achieved. :)

    The thing where they play the same chord at the same time at the end of of No Reply has weirdly stuck with me. I don't even know if I described it correctly.
