The Top Ten
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...2 Comments
Awesome collaboration between hetfield and hammett. the intro solo by hammett is specially memorable
One of the best of Metallica, and the best intro... - doodad
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.
Greatest Metallica song ever
Well this is the best along with master of puppets
I like the sounds
Love the acoustic intro that transforms into an awesome metal riff, LOVE PLAYIN! METALLICA RULES
I don't want to live on this planet anymore
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!
Such an unexpected and awesome intro!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..
A great intro - Spyrofan35
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 ever
Deserves to be #2 after For Whom the Bell Tolls. - Vinitsky
The acoustic Intro is epic.
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
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
Its defenetly better than the Unforgiven 1,2, and 3
I think about this intro all the time
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
Why is it 17?
Best metallic a intro should be on the top ten. Battery is second
Hell yeah! - Userguy443 Comments
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. - patschyie
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.
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.
Love the ancient souning music at the start. - dragon13304
Descent song with a build up to an awesome intro - christangrant
It is the best
The intro is just so awesome! This should easily be in the top 10's. I love the intro to this song! The whole song is just so damn good! MFOM! MFOM! Vote! - johnpaularguelles
Cliff recorded this on multiple bass guitars. It's quiet impressive. - Userguy44
It is like a bolt of lightning hit the tip of my penis
Personally, I think "For Whom the Bell Tolls" is the best intro, but "Damage, inc."'s is also an amazing one. While "Battery" also has a similar start, something strikes me about "Damage, inc." It's so beautiful, like "Orion"'s middle solo by Burton. I love the ambient sound that plays in the background until the first minute passes. It's so soothing and pumping at the same time. Add in the effect that this is Cliff Burton's final song and that kinda makes the song sad :(. Heck, I'm listening to it right now :).
Also, Kerry King has said this is his favorite Metallica song. And it definitely is one of my favorites too (And in my opinion, the most underrated Metallica song ever).
Amazing, and difficult to replicate.
Just... nice and soft and soothing. I love this intro.
Not very metallica-like, but can't help liking the beautiful piano/orchestral intro. - petrucci75hammet
I do, admittedly, like this song, but the intro is its strongest asset; there are many Metallica songs that are superior overall, but I really like the intro to this one.
Through The Never? It's so epic!
