Ram Jam's version of Black Betty is widely known, but I honestly think that Spiderbait gave it a more aggressive face. Also, I find Spiderbait's version much catchier than Ram Jam's. :-)
The buildup from the keyboards to the arpeggiated guitar, to when the drums kick in... It's unlike anything else I've ever heardV1 Comment
It broods for a little, before bursting into a backwards triple gallop where ALL will headbang.
A must listen intro! Especially for people who are looking for superb but obscure/deep tracks and intros.
It's probably the longest intro on this list because it also includes the solo - yes, the guitar solo is in the intro. The song structure is unusual but it's awesome. Uli rocks! - Metal_Treasure
65 really?! I honestly believe this song has the greatest rock intro of all time. So many different layers of music in this intro help create one of the most epic and intense feelings ever. The intro has the listener excitedly anticipating what's next, this intense build up could be down to the subtle "oooh"s or the piano key that sets the song in motion and more but either way there is no denying that this has one of the greatest introduction sequences ever!
Definitely my favorite. So soothing and relaxing. - MontyPython
