    No VH because they would fill all 5. Also sticking with 80's metal on this one.


    No order but impossible to keep it to 5....


    Lay It Down (Ratt) - Pure genius.

    Back For More (Ratt) - Maybe the best acoustic rock intro ever?

    You're In Love (Ratt) - Perfect intro to a song.

    Home Sweet Home (Crue) - Instant classic when it came out.

    Bark At The Moon (Ozzy) - Pretty insane guitar attack.

    Runaway (Bon Jovi) - Go ahead and laugh. But come on, it's one of the best intros ever up to the full band kicking in.
    .
    .
    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    Man On The Silver Mountain - Rainbow

    Swords and Tequila - Riot

    I Like To Rock - April Wine

    The intro is simply haunting ...

    Not in any order:
    Rainbow--Tarot Woman
    Robin Trower--Bridge of Sighs
    Billy Thorpe--Children of the Sun
    AC/DC-- For Those About to Rock
    Ozzy--Mr. Crowley

    This does not include the Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Dio, Metallica, Rush, Jeff Beck stuff. I could name top 5 intros all day. And this list certainly does not include the Mighty VH stuff.
    I just picked a few unique intros. Some many of us have forgot about !!!

    --Tarot woman (keyboards are great) but Ritchie's guitar part in the intro mix is just a pure mystical force that really influenced me.
    --Bridge of Sighs--truely haunting when hearing from a young guitar players point of view.
    --For Those About to Rock---Pure Marshall power
    --Mr. Crowley--Unbelieveable and then Randy's character and phrasing
    --Children of the Sun--Hey, I always liked it--kinda like Dream Weaver

    Man, there are so many great intros to choose from !!!
    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

    A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.
