    In no order:

    Growth - VH - Not the longest or "best" I guess, but still a great beat and always left me wishing they would have completed this "song".

    Everybody Wants Some - I actually do like this better than HFT.

    Hot For Teacher of course.

    AFU Naturally Wired has always been a fave of mine. I remember when they opened with this in '88...Al came in with the drums, then Ed doing his thing, then they kicked it into high gear. An AWESOME way to start a show!

    let's start this thing off brand new

    Van Halen - The jungle drums on "Everybody Wants Some" are where it's at, but Al had so many other moments to shine such as "Intruder"/"(Oh) Pretty Woman", "Dirty Movies" and "Hot For Teacher",
    Cheap Trick - "Ain't That A Shame (live)"
    Fleetwood Mac - "TUSK"
    U2 - "Sunday Bloody Sunday"
    Led Zeppelin - "D'yer Mak'er", "Rock & Roll", "When The Levee Breaks"
    Pretenders - "Middle Of The Road"
    Guns 'N Roses - "You Could Be Mine"
    INXS - "The Swing", "What You Need"
    The Beatles - "Why Don't We Do It In The Road"
    Aerosmith - The "Intro" to "Eat The Rich" on Get A Grip (more jungle drums!)
    Slade - "Run Run Away"

    I'm sure there are many others!

    Good thread, I always thought VH has had the best song intros of all time (whether it's drums or guitar).

    Outside of VH intros:

    Jimi Hendrix Experience - I don't live today (especially on the live version from The Jimi Hendrix Concerts - totally awesome).
