Default Your three favourite intros/riffs?

The mighty RIFF!

What three riffs, in rock, punk or metal make the your hairs stand on end and never fail to send a shiver down your spine the moment the song starts?

I'll kick things off with...






Crowbar, Planets Collide: just because its so amazingly epic, heavy as hell and if you're lucky enough to be at a show and hear this live, there's a tangible buzz that goes through the crowd when the opening notes play.

Sepultura, The Hunt: I like the original by New Model Army but I think the Sepultura version is better. I've loved this song since I first heard it and it brings back some pretty good memories.

The Stooges, I wanna be your dog: Loaded with menace, stripped back ugly guitar sound and one of the starting points for all things punk, what's not to like?

That's my three, there are many more I could have gone with but what are your favourite intros/riffs and why?

randy rhodes/ozzy osbourne - crazy train.

this was the classic Randy and it just made me go buy the album

the long version of freebird - lynard skynnard

i have never heard anything like it before or since, the speed that man played was remarkable and it is still a joy to hear.

Wolf Moon - Type O Negative

Starts off like a horror type lull into false security then bang here it comes...great song,

Muse - Time is Running Out. Technically it's a bass rift, but hey I'm a bassist.

Wolfmother - Joker and the Thief

Jimi Jendrix - All Along the Watchtower

Take My Scars - Machine Head

Just One Fix - Ministry

Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

All Along The Watchtower gets my vote as well, simply epic and utter perfection. I don't believe in gods, but if anything would convince me otherwise, it's Hendrix.

Tuesdays Gone - Lynyrd Skynyrd. I personally think it's a better song than Free bird, it's actually one of my favourite songs ever and top on my iTunes most played by over 100 plays, my ultimate chill out/relax/calm down song. This live version with the strings intro makes it even more amazing.

Third? What else but Baba O'Riley by The Who. Nothing more needs to be said, just listen to the sound orgasm that this intro and song itself is.

Rise Above - Black Flag https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Oh8K5tTcig
Holiday in Cambodia - The Dead Kennedy's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KTsXHXMkJA
Do What You Want - Bad Religion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5F-xHX1PDE

BONUS!!

Status Update - Propagandhi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRrtTt5k3q4

This last one is my favourite band ever, and I truly believe all 6 of their albums are nothing but killer. All of these bands totally ran my childhood, played a huge part in who I am today.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
