Ok so i was watching high fidelity last night, and when it got to the part about their five all time favorite opening songs on an album, i wondered what the ug commintie's top five opening tracks off albums are?

EDIT- No p**s taking of peoples choices, just because it's not your style of music


i'll start off.


Smells like teen spirit - Nirvana - Nevermind (predictable i know)

Mellon collie and the infinate sadness - Smashing pumpkins - Mellon collie and the infinate sadness

Bombtrack - Rage against the machine - Rage against the machine

Enter sandman - Metallica - Metallica

Scream aim fire - Bullet for my valentine - Scream aim fire

not sure if there's been a thread like this before, sorry if there has been
