Are These Rock’s Greatest Guitar Intros Ever? [VIDEO]

What are The Top 10 Greatest Guitar Intros in rock? Well, someone compiled a list and put it on the internet and I thought I’d pass along their choices.

All the songs were released between 1967 and 1990.

Here’s the list:

10.) “School’s Out”, Alice Cooper (1972)

9.) “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love”, Van Halen (1978)

8.) “Thunderstruck”, AC/DC (1990)

7.) “Sweet Home Alabama”, Lynyrd Skynyrd (1974)

6.) “Heartbreaker”, Led Zeppelin (1969)

5.) “Working Man”, Rush (1974)

4.) “Layla”, Derek and the Dominos (1970)

3.) “Suffragette City”, David Bowie (1976)

2.) “Purple Haze”, The Jimi Hendrix Experience (1967)

1.) “Eruption / You Really Got Me”, Van Halen (1978)

Technically, “Eruption” only works if you think of it as the intro to “You Really Got Me”, which it’s NOT. It’s a solo…and one of the best ever.

Unfortunately they’re permanently linked, because CERTAIN people INSIST on playing them back-to-back. Every. Single. Time. So they’ve basically become, like, one song.

Like ALWAYS playing Led Zepplin’s “Living Loving Maid” after “Heartbreaker”. Really? Every single time?

Are there any guitar intros that you think need to be added or dropped from this list? If so, leave a comment below and make your case!
