Sports fans have turned it into a stadium song in its own right, but I always considered it to be an intro for "We Are the Champions"

Can't stop at just 5!

For a southern angle, Sweet Home Alabama has a great intro

Foreplay has got to be up there

Shook Me All Night Long (one of Rocks greatest anthems) is top 5

Three short ones, each featuring a classic lick from a different instrument, from the stones: Satisfaction (guitar), Brown Sugar (sax), and Sympathy for the Devil (percussion)

Love Lies Bleeding based on length as well as content

Want to talk 70's: The intro to Hooked on a Feeling always made me turn up the volume on the boom box.

Not 70's enough: The BG's Stayin' Alive complete with its mental image of a younger and poorer John Travolta walking down Queens Boulavard with a can of Paint in one hand a double slice in the other, simply unforgetable.

The Who's Baba O'Reilly sums up the height of the synthesiser era.
From later times I have to mention Van Halen's Jump for those here that can't remeber the 70's

I can't leave out Come Sail Away by Kansas, and in for some reason I have to include Steve Miller Band's Come on and Dance as well.

Paul Simon's best latin impersonation from Late in the Evening is also a classic, but he has worked hard on his intros since the days of Mrs. Robinson.

From the 90's U2 has lots of high power intros, but my favorite is a tie between Where the Streets have no Name and I Will Follow

Bruce's Jungleland, great intro for a great song.

Best use of a cow bell: Stones' Honkey Tonk Woman
Come Sail Away was Styx, not Kansas, I think? (nm)RhodyRider

When we were kids, we wore out a couple of Grand Illusion albums, but we listened to Dust in the Wind a lot as well.

Not necessarily in any order:

1: Hard Day's Night -- Beatles; possibly
i the
single most electrifying chord ever
2: Rip This Joint -- Stones
3: Fast Cars -- Buzzcocks
4: Hot 'lanta -- Allman Bros
5: Foxy Lady -- Jimi!
...and why stop with 5?
Hey Joe -- Jimi!, One Way Out -- Allman Bros, Tin Soldier -- Small Faces, Dreams -- Allman Bros, Brown Sugar -- Stones, Sugarlight -- X....
