22 Epic Songs With Kickass Intros!


The intro is probably the most crucial part of a song for many of us to be able to actually “love” a song. And we know that it’s not an easy job to keep on listening to something once you hate the beginning. But we’re here to restore your faith in music. There are SO many great songs with outrageously epic intros, which means it wasn’t easy for us to pick 22 of them. But here they are, 22+3 bonus songs with amazing intros!

1. Led Zeppelin - Kashmir

A legendary song with a truly legendary intro. You may want to listen to the live version if you haven’t so far!

2. Dream Theater - Space-Dye Vest

A great song with a one-minute-long piano intro

3. H.I.M. - Gone With The Sin

Unlike others, this one starts with the vocals.

4. AC/DC - Back In Black

5. Hozier - Take Me To Church

6. Deep Purple - Soldier Of Fortune

7. Archive - Again

8. Rammstein - Engel

9. Queen - Under Pressure

10. Nirvana - The Man Who Sold The World

This list would be incomplete without this song and its intro. You can also listen to it from David Bowie and Midge Ure.

11. Massive Attack - Teardrop

Most of us remember this song from Dr. House!

12. Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know?

13. Michael Jackson - Billie Jean

+ almost every Michael Jackson song...

14. Dead Can Dance - Cantara

A little depressing, but if you can make it to the end, you should also try The Host Of Seraphim from Dead Can Dance.

15. Carl Orff - O Fortuna - Carmina Burana

Yes, we all know this one.

16. Dark Tranquillity - Lethe

17. Metallica - Master Of Puppets

If you want something smoother, try Nothing Else Matters.

19. The Chemical Brothers - Galvanize

A cheerful one...

20. ZZ Top - Bad to the Bone

Personal favourite...

21. Anathema - Fragile Dreams

Wish it was longer...
