Alright guys, what are some of the best opening songs you've ever seen in concert by ANY bands?

For me:

Kickstart My Heart- Motley Crue. Awesome riff, really gets the crowd pumped, lots of fireworks!

Skip to about :45 into it.

You Really Got Me- Van Halen. The curtain dropping was SO epic!

GO! Post links along with the song and band name.

Ecstacy of Gold seems to work pretty well for Metallica.

That's not really an opening song though, because they aren't playing it.
stuff is messed up - the offspring
iron fist - motorhead

but the winner:
THREE DAYS - Jane's Addiction that was immense
Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top
Fender 300CE T-Bucket
Dean DOF ML [For Sale]
Marshall AVT 2000 valvestate
Ibanez modified turbo tube screamer
Digitech RP250
i have a live version of sequoia throne by protest the hero that's pretty sick

it starts with the crowd chanting the band's name, then some ominous background music plays, then rody says 'we are protest the ****ing hero, rawwwrhhahhah'.
Money - Pink Floyd, love it, it starts with cash register sounds then kicks in with the awesome bass riff.

"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..
