Don't know about epic, but basically the definition of a crescendo - "A Day in the Life" - Beatles.

AHHHH YES!  I finally thought of a good one.  Keeping Warm by We Were Promised Jetpacks.  It's the song from the Kings of Summer trailer that we all went gaga over last summer.

Transatlanticism by Death Cab for Cutie is basically one long awesome crescendo from start to finish. From the train tracks at the beginning to the muted piano and vocals, followed by the simple driving drum beat, and "I need you so much closer," leading to noisy electric guitars and "So come oooooooon," over and over again.  It's also part of one of the best two-track combinations (with Tiny Vessels) that I've ever heard on an album.

It's really a crescendo in every way. Even the lyrics are written in a crescendo style themselves.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Certainly more activity toward the end than at the beginning, but that's pretty much er'ry song in some way, wouldn't say this has an "epic" crescendo but it is still a great song though so TY for posting. If SB were looking for a Toadies song with a great big finish the choice would probably be Tyler, which is another great song.

Boston - Foreplay/Long Time

Starts out rocking, silence, then crescendos into that chill guitar solo. Very melodic. Love it.

really great bump by skibe.

Also, okay look, i'm not saying i think this is a great song, i'm just saying in terms of an epic crescendo i don't think you can have an earnest conversation without including this ditty:
