Ten incredible intros

Ten incredible intros

No given order here, just ten great intros we thought worth sharing after 18 months culminating some 400 videos to add to our site to go alongside our original posters. Some bands we have posters for, so we've added links if any hit a chord.

Mumford & Sons, Tompkins Square Park

Considering this is live, compounded by the initial fooling around, this is simply epic with faultless vocals from Marcus. If you only liked M&S when they played the banjo, think again!


Stiff Little Fingers, Alternative Ulster

Formed over 40 years ago in 1977, SLF are still touring and recording despite major personnel changes.


The Animals, House of the Rising Sun

Eric Burdon was only 23 when The Animals recorded House of the Rising Sun in just one take on 18 May 1964. It starts with a now-famous electric guitar A minor chord arpeggio by Hilton Valentine.


The Eagles, Hotel California

A legendary intro, Don Henley uses the phrase 'the warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air' which has been interpreted as a reference to marijuana. "Colitas" means "little tails" in Spanish; in Mexican slang it refers to buds of the cannabis (marijuana) plant.


U2, Where the streets have no name

More of a film, but well worth a watch if you haven't seen the LAPD try to shut U2's impromptu concert on a rooftop in downtown LA.

Muse, Stockholm Syndrome

Matt Bellamy pulls an epic guitar riff closing out their legendary Glastonbury headline set with Stockholm Syndrome in 2004.

Eminem, Lose Yourself

Moody synths set you up for a pop track, then boom! Eminem walks in on a menacing guitar riff.

Pulp, Common People

Starting with a softly spoken Jarvis, it doesn't take long for this 90's hit to turn into a bouncy floor filler.

Oasis, Wonderwall

Regarded as Oasis' greatest song; written by Noel Gallagher for the band’s second album: (What’s the Story) Morning Glory and released in October1995.

Richard Ashcroft, A song for the lovers

An incredible live performance sourced from an original cd released in 2000 with a fabulous acoustic guitar intro by the former Verve frontman.
