Top Ten Metallica Songs with the Best Intros

The Top Ten
1 For Whom the Bell Tolls For Whom the Bell Tolls Cover Art

Anybody here should vote this song. The bass of cliff sounds perfect, and his variations of the intro during the lives (for example, the Oklahoma concerto of 1985) make it one of the best songs of this band

The most unbelievable heav intro Metallica has ever done. Couldn't believe this was a Metallica song when I forst heard it. Simply stunning headbanging music.

The best and no1 can replicate it and even Metallica can't do it what cliff has done

The intro is long and intimidating! This should be #1 without a doubt!

2 One One Cover Art

Awesome collaboration between hetfield and hammett. the intro solo by hammett is specially memorable

3 Master of Puppets Master of Puppets Cover Art

those three chords are Perfect

the intro is perfect and so is the entire song

4 Fade to Black Fade to Black Cover Art

The best! It is amazing, I get lost when I listen to it. It so well written and beautiful and amazing, just astonishing. Wonderful music.

Well this is the best along with master of puppets

One of the best of Metallica, and the best intro...

Greatest Metallica song ever

5 Enter Sandman Enter Sandman Cover Art

I like the sounds

Love the acoustic intro that transforms into an awesome metal riff, LOVE PLAYIN! METALLICA RULES

6 Welcome Home (Sanitarium) Welcome Home (Sanitarium) Cover Art

I play that song on guitar.
For me it's the best song in the World, just listen to the whole song every day, you will understand me..

In my personal opinion, I think Welcome Home (Sanitarium) has the best riffs and lyrics overall Metallica songs.

7 Seek & Destroy Seek & Destroy Cover Art

Kill 'em all is so underrated

8 Battery Battery Cover Art

This 30s acoustic intro symbolizes the entire thrash genre! If I were to make a film on thrash this intro would be the first thing played! As soon as I hear this it instantly reminds me of the greatness that was to follow...

Deserves to be #2 after For Whom the Bell Tolls.

The acoustic Intro is epic.

Battery hands down

9 Ride the Lightning Ride the Lightning Cover Art

Such a classic thrash metal intro, the high pitched guitars are the lightning and the pounding tom drums are the thunder, perfect! The harmonies are such a great touch and the bass crunches through! Incredibly clever, then the headbanging chugging riff begins!

Ride the lightning has the best intro, you'd be crazy not to think so.

Such an unexpected and awesome intro!

Straight. Up. Amazing.

10 The Four Horsemen The Four Horsemen Cover Art
The Contenders
11 All Nightmare Long All Nightmare Long Cover Art

Its defenetly better than the Unforgiven 1,2, and 3

12 Bleeding Me Bleeding Me Cover Art

Why not, the most underrated Metallica song,

I Wish There Was A 10 Hour Loop On Youtube

13 Sad But True Sad But True Cover Art

I think about this intro all the time

14 Nothing Else Matters Nothing Else Matters Cover Art

I want to say about this song just nothing else matter.. I also play this intro in my guitar & this is the 1st intro which my teacher taught me..

One of the best intro by Metallica... Hammet you rock

15 Creeping Death Creeping Death Cover Art

A great intro

one of the best metallica songs w an intro to match

16 Blackened Blackened Cover Art

A guitar track that was written in reverse, then they recorded the reverse of that, then reversed it for the album. Genius, should be higher than 15

Best metallic a intro should be on the top ten. Battery is second

Amazing guitar part in the intro.

Why is it 17?

17 The Call of Ktulu The Call of Ktulu Cover Art
18 The Unforgiven III The Unforgiven III Cover Art

Not very metallica-like, but can't help liking the beautiful piano/orchestral intro.

19 The Struggle Within The Struggle Within Cover Art

Cool! I love the drum intro to this song. It sounds so awesome. It sounds like a war is about to start in the intro which is pretty cool! Should be higher.

It is really cool, the snar,... Like on a parade. Really cool.

20 The Day That Never Comes The Day That Never Comes Cover Art
21 St. Anger St. Anger Cover Art

While the song itself isn't very good, the intro is badass. If they kept the aggression flowing from the intro throughout, this could've been one of Metallica's best songs.

Pure aggression. I love it. Makes me want to punch someone it the face.

22 Wherever I May Roam Wherever I May Roam Cover Art

Love the ancient souning music at the start.

eerie and wonderful

23 Fight Fire With Fire Fight Fire With Fire Cover Art

How could anyone forget the acoustic intro to this song? It is so deceptive to non metal fans. They will think, "aw that's so nice! " but when the thrash kicks in, it will be different.

24 ...And Justice for All ...And Justice for All Cover Art

How can this not be in here? It has amazing intro that starts slow and beautiful and gets heavier as the intro goes on... One of my favorite intros
