For me it's either:

"Myrrh" from Heyday


"Destination" from Starfish

Both songs perfectly set the mood for their respective albums and both are wonderful individual songs.

Both by The Church, of course.

For this one I would have to go with AtomicBono. "Where The Streets Have No Name" has one of the best intros ever. I mean the build up is incredible. It is even better live. One of the best versions I listened to was "Auld Lang Syne" as the intro. You could feel the emotion just by listening to it.

Here are soe close contenders:

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" - Nirvana

"Enter Sandman" - Metallica

"Born In The U.S.A." - Bruce Springsteen

"Zoo Station" - U2

"Thunder Road" - Bruce Springsteen

And that's about it for now

'Know Your Rights' that introduces 'Combat Rock'.

Sure it's not that strong an album, but 'this is a public service announcement...with GUITAR!'

Now that's fantastic.

Bush's Razorblade Suitcase. Gavin's dog Winstan begins the album with a nice little growl/heavy breathing number. Any album which opens with a growly panting dog wins.

good constuctive arguement there. Yes, after the first couple of songs on their album, they do, but it doesn't mean I can't like like the way the piano fades in at the start.

if I may add one:

Stereophonics - Performance & Cocktails
