They cane people there after all.
Guys, the game will be out less than a month from now. Everyone will know what the song is then.
Just relax for a while and leave this poor guy alone.
The End would not make a good ending song. The vocals are almost nonexistant except for a couple of lines. The last song should be a good one for all instuments. I think this is a case of people believing what they want to believe.
The End would be a pretty terrible ending song for the game, unless also paired with Golden Slumbers and Carry That Weight. The end of the game is supposed to have a big emotional impact, The End by itself doesn't do that. By itself, it sounds incredibly disjointed as it's the end of a medley.
As we know the full medley is supposed to be available as DLC, it doesn't make sense to release a piece of it like this. The Tom Sawyer comparison isn't valid since that was a cover vs a master and the songs had their differences. Selling us the exact same song twice is a bit more of a leap than selling us a master after a cover.
The dude was probably lying because he obtained the copy of the game under some condition he doesn't spoil it. He probably works for MTV or Harmonix or something.

He could be lying or not. But still The End is highly probable. As everything points to it.
I don't think that the 'big emotional impact' comes from playing the last song. A dreamscape playing while we eyeball the chart isn't going to hold our attention enough to warrant declaring it the Brian's Song of games.
Rather, I'm imagining there will be an ending cinematic playing with the credits rolling. *That* will be the emotional hit.
