Iron Maiden covers this, FooFighters covers this, Van Halen, Guns & Roses, Pearl Jam, even the Sex Pistols covered this song live.
The roughest, loudest and most fun Rock band of the late 60's early 70's.
Yep, not even close!
Not even close! Where's Uncle Ted with Cat Scratch Fever or ZZ Top's Just Got Paid?
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!
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
Why is the best intro ever 22nd? I've actually heard this song live and the guitaring gives me chills down my spine
Heard this song during the hockey playoffs & it just pumps the arena wild!
For children of a certain generation, this was the song that made us want to learn to play the guitar, and the first riff that was difficult enough to teach us the value of practice until we nailed it.
Iconic. Inspirational. Seminal.
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.
Gotta love this one. When I was first getting into rock music this was my favorite!
The way all the instruments gradually come in is amazing!
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
Just raw, fist-pumping, crowd-baiting, rock n’ roll. The purest distillation of everything AC/DC stood for.
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.
Badass drum solo to start
I like Ozzy Osborn
The most legendary intro in rock history and the most obvious winner on this list.
I wouldn't call it an intro, it's just the main riff.
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 to this legendary song, transcends any form of human greatness.
Instantly known, even for those who don't like Metal.
Heartbreaker by Led Zep a much better intro. It should be top ten!
I like Iron Maiden
I'm sorry have you listened to this song? Then you know it should be #1
This should be #1
No intro to any song, ever, has ever, or will ever, come close to this beauty.
There's nothing much to say except this is one rocking intro!
Awesome song greatest guitar intro I ever heard
By far the greatest guitarist
this intro makes you more and more excited... its the perfect intro
This Intro Is The Most Hardest Rock Intro I've Ever Heard, I Gotta Say It Should be Either 1 or 2 But I Guess 5 Is Still OK, But This Metallica's Hardest Intro Ever
The Who were the first true masters of the intro, and this was their best.
Remarkable considering it was very experimental, and the power required by the synth loop machine (very advanced for the time) was so great that once the other instruments kicked in, the electricity to the synth was sapped, so it started slowing down, forcing Bonham to change his beat ever so slightly.
Definitely of the best intros, should be at least in the first 5
The Who - Masters of epic song intros.
Nabbed off 1 direction
The intro is absolutely amazing and the song itself is even better. 1: Money for Nothing 2: Hell's Bells 3: Wish You Were Here.
I absolutely love the intro in this song. It's meant to take you on a journey.
Not only a great intro, but also the greatest drum solo
Come on people... have you ever listened to FEAR OF THE DARK? and where's BOSTON - FOREPLAY/LONGTIME
