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.

"favourite - something regarded with special favor or liking; "that book is one of my favorites""

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

Favourite riffs =/= Favourite opening riffs

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

Mine's probably The Glass Prison by Dream Theater.
Northern wind take my song up high
To the hall of glory in the sky
So its gates shall greet me open wide
When my time has come to die

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

I think i've finally found someone who loves alter bridge as much as me
My favourite intro riff is probably Ties that bind or madhouse by anthrax
