Top Ten Metallica Songs with the Best Intros
The Top Ten
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!
Awesome collaboration between hetfield and hammett. the intro solo by hammett is specially memorable
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.
One of the best of Metallica, and the best intro...
Well this is the best along with master of puppets
Greatest Metallica song ever
the intro is perfect and so is the entire song
those three chords are Perfect
Love the acoustic intro that transforms into an awesome metal riff, LOVE PLAYIN! METALLICA RULES
I like the sounds
In my personal opinion, I think Welcome Home (Sanitarium) has the best riffs and lyrics overall Metallica songs.
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..
Kill 'em all is so underrated
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...
the acoustic part is the best part of the entire song and sets up the whole song to make one there greatest songs ever
Deserves to be #2 after For Whom the Bell Tolls.
The acoustic Intro is epic.
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!
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
Ride the lightning has the best intro, you'd be crazy not to think so.
Such an unexpected and awesome intro!
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
Hammett didn't even play on this track. Every guitar part, even the solo, was James.
Its defenetly better than the Unforgiven 1,2, and 3
I think about this intro all the time
Why not, the most underrated Metallica song,
I Wish There Was A 10 Hour Loop On Youtube
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.
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.
one of the best metallica songs w an intro to match
A great intro
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.
Love the ancient souning music at the start.
eerie and wonderful
Not very metallica-like, but can't help liking the beautiful piano/orchestral intro.
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
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.
