The most famous of which is unquestionably "Bohemian Rhapsody".

Let's kick off with Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band. "Zig Zag Wanderer" is the second track on side one of his 1967 debut album Safe As Milk:

Nights in White Satin - Moody Blues

Thanks E. But could you link a version that has the gong at the end? I'm a bit flummoxed. Evil

Yes, I thought it might be an idea to start a new thread now and again. Keep stagnation at bay. Wink

No other takers? Have it your own way then. Grin

"This Prison Moon" comes from Gary Numan's 1983 album Warriors:

I can't think of any more songs that end with the gong.
All I can think of are songs that have the gong during them, such as "O Fortuna" from Carmina Burana

Mussorsky - Pictures at an Exhibition. Repeated gongs towards very end. Last gong a couple of seconds before end - close enough ?

Crazy story. Back in the 1970s as a student I was able to take out a subscription to our symphony 's concerts. Got a great seat for next to nothing, the row in back of the box seats.
One of the concerts I went to had this piece as the last on the program. Immediately in front of me , in box seats, was a candidate for Mayor in our city, and his wife . Towards the end of this piece, exciting music being played, he got up, said "this is boring" and they left.
I thought do I want someone like that for Mayor ? (Yes I guess that was a bit snobbish lol)
So for this reason (and yes, others), I voted for the other guy, who ended up winning the race.

Here's the last one I can think of--the epic "Underture" from The Who's Tommy ends with three strokes of the gong:
