41 Day Tripper - The Beatles Day Tripper - The Beatles
42 Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue
43 Masquerade - Versailles Masquerade - Versailles
44 Snow (Hey Oh) - Red Hot Chili Peppers Snow (Hey Oh) - Red Hot Chili Peppers
45 Closure - Asking Alexandria Closure - Asking Alexandria
46 Black Betty - Spiderbait Black Betty - Spiderbait

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. :-)

47 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold
48 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
49 Where the Streets Have No Name - U2 Where the Streets Have No Name - U2

The buildup from the keyboards to the arpeggiated guitar, to when the drums kick in... It's unlike anything else I've ever heard

What an astonishing intro. Just listen it

50 Seasons in the Abyss - Slayer Seasons in the Abyss - Slayer
51 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold
52 The Sails of Charon - Scorpions The Sails of Charon - Scorpions

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

53 The Final Countdown - Europe The Final Countdown - Europe
54 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
55 Raining Blood - Slayer Raining Blood - Slayer

It broods for a little, before bursting into a backwards triple gallop where ALL will headbang.

56 Under Pressure - Queen
57 Hearts Burst Into Fire - Bullet for My Valentine Hearts Burst Into Fire - Bullet for My Valentine
58 Angel Witch - Angel Witch Angel Witch - Angel Witch
59 Back in Black - AC/DC Back in Black - AC/DC
60 Under a Glass Moon - Dream Theater Under a Glass Moon - Dream Theater
