Don't forget 'Cock Rock' and 'Butt Rock'. 
 
Don't google those, by the way.

A little flamenco in the middle doesn't mean that the song belongs to that genre. Exept that bit there's nothing else from flamenco.

I think Tie Your Mother Down double qualifies as heavy metal and glam metal, which is rare for a metal song.

The genres list I made there includes either the genre of a whole song or a part of a song. There is a flamenco section in Innuendo.
