Top 10 Rock and Metal Songs with the Most Exploding and Commanding Intros

By intro I mean the first several seconds of the song - this can be music, scream, spoken lines, shout, sounds, and so on. So any intro that surprises you, shocks you a bit and "wakes you up". Music that makes you feel messages like "hey, attention here!", "freeze!", "quiet!", "stand up!", and similar. You should focus on the music and not on the lyrics.

The Top Ten

1 Another Brick In the Wall - Pink Floyd

I think a better example for Pink Floyd would be In the Flesh (particularly the first one). It has such a loud and present sound that it grabs your attention and makes you think, "Ooh, this is gonna be an interesting album". - Gg2000

2 Master of Puppets - Metallica
3 Induction - Gamma Ray
4 Crying In the Rain - Whitesnake
5 You Give Love a Bad Name - Bon Jovi
6 Crimson King - Demons & Wizards
7 I Surrender - Rainbow
8 Smoke On the Water - Deep Purple
9 Set the World on Fire - Annihilator
10 Raining Blood - Slayer

The Contenders

11 Oops I Did It Again - Children of Bodom

Alexi says "Because you're loser, perkele! ", followed by funny sounds (perkele is a Finnish swear word). - Metal_Treasure

12 The Curse Of Feanor - Blind Guardian
13 Still of the Night - Whitesnake
14 Mirror Mirror - Blind Guardian
15 Let's Get Rocked - Def Leppard
16 Judgement Day - Whitesnake
17 Give Me All Your Love - Whitesnake
18 Road to Ruin - Annihilator
19 Grand Parade - Blind Guardian
20 (Sic) - Slipknot
21 Moonage Daydream - David Bowie
22 A Warrior's Call - Volbeat
23 Overture - Edguy

This intro song sounds very similar to Gamma Ray's “Induction” but this one came out before Gamma Ray intro. - Metal_Treasure

24 Tutti Frutti - Little Richard
25 It's So Easy - Guns N Roses
