If you have an impact wrench and can fit it in, pound some smaller socket on what's left of the head and let 'er rip....

That's why I like the hammering effect of an impact. I used one a few months ago to get out the drain plug on a differential case. The plug was in so tight I was going to strip out the drive hole, so I used an impact on low. It came free in a second.
