The best and no1 can replicate it and even Metallica can't do it what cliff has done - amitcornelius1
The intro is long and intimidating! This should be #1 without a doubt!
What Cliif is playing bass on the inro. Riffs are power and kirk's playing good. The best...

the intro is perfect and so is the entire song
Ride the lightning has the best intro, you'd be crazy not to think so. - Crash
Not my favorite but voted it just because I think it should be higher this and fade to black and master of puppets and battery are my 4 favorites
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!V 1 Comment
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..
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... - Cmf97351
the acoustic part is the best part of the entire song and sets up the whole song to make one there greatest songs everV 2 Comments
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..V 1 Comment
Descent song with a build up to an awesome intro - christangrant
This intro riff is from the Wizard of Oz but Metallica's twist on it makes this intro amazing and it totally pumps me up.
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. - MKBeast
Its defenetly better than the Unforgiven 1,2, and 3
I think about this intro all the time
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.V 1 Comment
Love the ancient souning music at the start. - dragon13304
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.
