Metallica – Enter Sandman
The band intros the song with deep hard smooth guitar notes, and then thundering with their power chord riffing using two fingers plucking. Giving “Enter Sandman” one of the greatest song intros of all time.
Deep Purple – Smoke On The Water
This song is one of my favorite introduction with hard guitar beating. Blackmore uses two fingers to pluck so the pairs of notes can be played exactly simultaneously to match the organ's timing more closely. The intro (and throughout whole song) used a contrasting verse-chorus form, with the driving verse sections building musical tension while the soaring chorus releases it.
Black Sabbath – Paranoid
The song is considered one of the greatest intros of all time. With the combination of its hard riffing and power notes solo gives the unique hardcore sound intro to this legendary song.
Guns N' Roses – Sweet Child O' Mine
Slash gives a unique sound of electric guitar by playing wonderful notes as a pattern before the heavy guitar rhythm will kick in as a hard background.
AC/DC – Back in Black
Hard guitar rhythm and very crystal guitar solo gives this song intros one of the most memorable intros of all time.
Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit
This great intro is in the musical key of F minor, and is based around a riff using four power chords (F Bb Ab Db) with a noticable similarity to a section of Boston's AOR classic "More Than a Feeling", Blue Öyster Cult's "Godzilla", and Pixies' "Debaser". Cobain starts with clear guitar riffing chord before the coming of headbanging drum beat and power rhythm, then twisting back to clear guitar melody before vocal starts.
The Who – Baba O'Riley
with its crashing chorus coupled with repeating F-C-Bb power chords via organs and the way the sound slowly laying on each others more and more created deeper sound dimension before the vocal will kick in, Baba O'Riley is considered one of my favorite song intro and also The Who's concert signature song.
Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird
Lynyrd Skynyrd gives the unique sound to start this popular song by introducing a song with slow beat of drum and guitar, then the hard note solo will lay on top of those before the vocal starts.
Gary Glitter – Rock N Roll Part 2
The song starts with nice drum beating following with hard guitar rhythm, then followed with great powerful guitar solo notes giving this intro music piece one of the most popular widely used in many commercial advertisements.
Grand Funk Railroad – We're An American Band
We're An American Band: I love the section of solo drum beating together with rhythm guitar, so unique and head banging.
Europe – The Final Countdown
Such a epic way to start the song with powerful pattern of notes on keyboard before coming of the hard beating drum and another guitar rhythm laying heavy chord as a background.
Golden Earring – Radar Love
I love the sound of hard rhythm guitar intro together with the drum giving a unique sound of hard heavy metal from 70's.
Kiss – Rock N Roll All Night
This is one of my favorite song intro with perfect drum beating and beautiful hard guitar rhythm giving this song one of the rocker favorite intros.
