What's your favourite opening riff?

I have a fair few, but those that are worth a mention;

Always On The Run - Slash & Lenny Kravitz

Sounds of A Playground Fading - In Flames
(The acoustic intro is great, but it really kicks in @ 01:09)

Nightrain - GN'R

I Know It Hurts - Alter Bridge

Still Remains - Alter Bridge - Big Favourite!

Isolation - Alter Bridge

One more Alter Bridge one

Come To Life - Alter Bridge

Love them all! There's plenty more I could fit on here but these are definately some of the best intro riff, in my opinion.
So Pit, yours?

I believe "favourite" means one, so...

Acid Rain - Liquid Tension Experiment

It's not really an opening riff per se. Just 10 seconds of the sound that a 7-string makes when melting faces.

I've never listened to LTE before. I've heard plenty about them though.

I know how to use the search function. Funny man. I just didn't feel the need to.

Rise to Remain's Illusive exsistance has some pretty serious drumming in its intro, along with some good riffage so im voting for that
