    Intros? Prefer to get right into it so mine would have to be one of he short intros the clash sometimes did.

    I once set my work phone to ring with white riot by the clash. It might be the reason I always took so long to answer it!

    Out of those listed, how many are recent? At last 5 or 10 years?

    It seems to me either we're a bunch of old folk stuck in the music of our youth or there's been no good intros in recent times.

    Or as from my point of view the current 'pop' music is cr4p.

    For me, given these rules

    - Must make you want to instantly turn up the volume
    - Max. 30 seconds

    Ruffest Gun Ark - Top Cat/DJ Rap
    Incredible - M Beat ft General Levy
    Origin Unknown - Valley of the Shadows

    Residents of SW London probably point and laugh at the bodywork shaking bass emanating from the sensible family-sized Ford being driven by a middle-aged white guy with 2 embarrassed looking children trying to hide in the back. :D

    Please convey my sincere sympathy to your children if that's the dross you're subjecting them to.

    How Soon Is Now is one with my vote.
    How about 'love spreads' by Stone Roses

  • joe2008joe2008 Posts: 1,531
    Yeah, Alternative Ulster, SLF,

    Tommy Gun and Safe European Home, The Clash, are great too...

    but The Boys Are Back In Town, Thin Lizzy is probably my favourite intro.
