jimmy the exploder

seven nation army

ball and biscuit

the hardest button to button

and their covers of 'stop breakin down' and 'i just don't know what to do with myself'

jack knows how to riff like a motherfucker

Mobb Deep - Shook Ones Pt. II

If there was a ever an intro that can wipe the smiles off of every single face in a room, this is it.

If you have your iTunes open right now, play this song. And see if your fists don't start clenching. Word up, son. Word.

"The First Song" - Built to Spill off Ultimate Alternative Wavers. That's always been one of my favorites for some reason, it's more like a minute long though, not 12 seconds.

"Leave Them All Behind" by Ride

After Nowhere, everybody at the time thought they were in for some serious business with this one...too bad that wasn't really the case.

kinda cheating since it's ~30s intro, but excursions - a tribe called quest.

one of the sickest intros to one of the great hip hop albums
