Well the first 10 seconds of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" changed rock music in about 10 seconds so I'm gonna go with that.

Unless you listen to CKY often as I do (new album sans Deron is not good though. I've forgotten that one already).

This is a much better question than best intro. I spent a good 10 minutes looking around and most songs don't get a good hook in time. You need something that knocks you down without delay.

First, for Led Zeppelin I have to counter with Immigrant Song. There really is no contest here for me vs Kashmir as you get the hook and the first primal scream in the first 10 seconds.

For Van Halen, I have to go with Unchained.

My final pick at the moment is Hangar 18. Holy Wars into Hangar 18 is just pure bliss.

Spaceman by Babylon zoo the first ten seconds were great at the time the rest was sole shitty rock song that I tried to like. But in hindsight it was rather shitty.

I like you sir. A lot. I'll add Hell Patrol from the same album, it's insane.

Totally agree on Metallica, tons of great intros. Was going to post Wherever I may roam myself.

The whole intro is 25 seconds, but the first 10 are still exhilarating.

Oh I love the minimalism of that choice. Just three or four two-handed piano chords to grab everybody's attention, punctuated by ominous low notes from the left hand.

Certainly makes me sit up.

Well, it's a 20 second best intro of any song, but given it's funeral doom metal and very slow, it's forgivable.
