DISORDER - JOY DIVISION unknown pleasures
THE CLASSICAL - THE FALL hex enduction hour
HOLIDAYS IN THE SUN - THE SEX PISTOLS never mind the bollocks
10% WEIRD - THE MEANIES 10% weird
I find it odd that 10% Weird rates so well, espeically since it's so ridiculously short.

So anyway, it's opening tracks on albums? This is actually a pretty good one. Ok, off the top of my head....

Violet - Hole (Live Through This)
Arcarsenal - At The Drive In (Relationship Of Command)
Serve The Servants - Nirvana (In Utero)
Come Home - Placebo (Placebo) - this one is for for the era it reminds me of though....
Is This It? - The Strokes (Is This It?)

PJ Harvey - Rid Of Me (Rid Of Me)
PJ Harvey - To Bring You My Love (To Bring You My Love)
Hole - Violet (Live Through This)
McLusky - Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues (McLusky Do Dallas)
Suede - So Young (Suede)
The Classical - The Fall (Hex Enduction Hour)
Non-Alignment Pact - Pere Ubu (The Modern Dance)
Sunday Morning - Velvet Underground (The Velvet Underground and Nico)
Frownland - Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band (Trout Mask Replica)
Debaser - Pixies (Doolittle)

many others could have made it...
to list top five openers for an album requires them to either floor me or signal the beginning of a great album that I will never forget.

1. metallica - hit the lights (kill em all)
an older kid than me was disgusted to learn that I had only heard the black album. He dragged me back to his house after school to show me this album. The opening tracks's fade in and million mile riffs floored a young bogan Boris.

2. shellac - my black ass (at action park)
Probably one of my favourite rock songs ever. It opens with a little squeaking noise of Steve Albini sliding his hand down the fretboard, before the first riff. awesome.

3. atari teenage riot - get up while you can (the future of war)
I listened to this at Dada's and after the snare roll and screams preceded the gabber kicks, thought "fuck yeah" and bought it.

4. brujeria - pito wilson (raza odiada)
Tyron and I were into our first cone and laughing our arses off at Jello's intro when that riff made us stop laughing and concentrate on it.

5. daisy chainsaw - I feel insane (eleventeen)
It's Katie Jane Garside's girly grunting noise before the smashing drum intro that does it for me.
