Not even close! Where's Uncle Ted with Cat Scratch Fever or ZZ Top's Just Got Paid?
The roughest, loudest and most fun Rock band of the late 60's early 70's. - phr
Iron Maiden covers this, FooFighters covers this, Van Halen, Guns & Roses, Pearl Jam, even the Sex Pistols covered this song live.UListen to Sample
Lovely intro. That bassline played by Cliff sounds amazing. - Userguy44
The best intro ever. The bass intro makes the song more energetic and I think this is the best Metallica song with the great bass lines of cliff and the guitar work of kirk, vocals by james and yes the crazy drumming of Lars - amitcornelius1
I get goosebumps every time I hear this song. It's by far the greatest song intro ever written! The awesome bass guitar riff is just the best and Lars absolutely nailed the drumming rhythm! The intro is just the right length to build suspense and the energy is just exploding. Best... Song Intro... Ever!
Heard this song during the hockey playoffs & it just pumps the arena wild!V 6 CommentsUListen to Sample
THE reason I did this Google search. This is, in my humble opinion, THE BEST rock intro. I don't even like Slash, but he killed it here.
Beautiful, intense... it's got the complete package.
Song intro... Oh come on?
Without a doubt.. Best ever..
Gotta love this one. When I was first getting into rock music this was my favorite! - DonutV 4 CommentsUListen to Sample
A very catchy intro, its what attracted me to the song... But Sweet Child O' Mine is better. I'm surprised master of puppets intro isn't on the list
The Ultimate "pump up the crowd" song. The Riff... The Chant... It's legendary - VADERtheIMPALER
The best ever.
Catchy from the start!
This intro is definitely badass, but it should be #2 and For Whom the Bell Tolls should be #1 all by itself.UListen to Sample
I wouldn't call it an intro, it's just the main riff. - Alkadikce
The most legendary intro in rock history and the most obvious winner on this list.UListen to Sample
The intro to this legendary song, transcends any form of human greatness.
Instantly known, even for those who don't like Metal. - Kolobanov
He outro was the best part - zxm
Never heard something as amazing as this... The intro is absolute perfection
Its out of human reach
And I love how jimmy page improvises it on stage
The intro just gets you to the mood; it gets you so high that you can reach the sky. I love Dire Straits. MARK KNOPFLER IS THE BEST GUITARIST EVER! SAY WHAT YOU SAY
There's nothing much to say except this is one rocking intro!
No intro to any song, ever, has ever, or will ever, come close to this beauty.

Nightwish is the my favorite band of all time and Ghost Love Score is my favorite song. I hope others agree with me and this song stays number 1 forever!
Very upbeatUListen to Sample
Awesome intro and it's so unique that can't be described. It just slides into your head like nothing else.
Try the song sample below (only part of the intro guys). - Metal_Treasure
Guns N Roses was one of the most talanted Bands of our time. Axle viocals were off the charts! Slash could play anything. What a shame they couldn't work out there def.
Slash was supreme on this piece. The music he played was perfect. Axles vocals were frightening, as they should have been. - mgenetUListen to Sample
ObviouslyUListen to Sample
The most unique intro ever! Knock, knock...
Give a listen to this - amazing and funny. You won't be sorry. - Metal_Treasure
Easily, the most original intro/opening of any classic Rock song.
BEST INTRO EVER! So AMAZING! Especially with the bell going at the start
This should be #1 not for whom the bell tolls by metallica
How this isn't number two is beyond me.V 1 Comment
65 really?! I honestly believe this song has the greatest rock intro of all time. So many different layers of music in this intro help create one of the most epic and intense feelings ever. The intro has the listener excitedly anticipating what's next, this intense build up could be down to the subtle "oooh"s or the piano key that sets the song in motion and more but either way there is no denying that this has one of the greatest introduction sequences ever!
Every time I hear this I feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Definitely my favorite. So soothing and relaxing. - MontyPythonUListen to Sample
It sounds so coolUListen to Sample
Spooky, unusual and awesome. - Metal_TreasureUListen to Sample
