28 Hotel California - Eagles
29 Ropes - In Flames
30 Gates of Babylon - Rainbow

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

31 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

? Only 32nd?

Is this the real life, or is this just fantasy?

32 Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N Roses

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. - mgenet

33 The Bleeding - Five Finger Death Punch
34 Knocking at Your Back Door - Deep Purple

The most unique intro ever! Knock, knock...
Give a listen to this - amazing and funny. You won't be sorry. - Metal_Treasure

36 Poison - Alice Cooper
37 Discord - After Forever
38 War Pigs - Black Sabbath
39 Love at War - While She Sleeps
