  • Name some songs that you LOVE the Intro....

        Before the video I got an ad for the Sheetz in Altoona.

        Are you in that area?

       "Along the Way" by Bad Religion is really super catchy and is only a min. and a half long!

        Holy wars... The punishment due
        I am the night
        The chosen few
        Cloak of feathers and the veil of isis
        Big rocks got stacked on top of each other. Is this proof of alien life? Yes it is

          Death Cab's I Will Posess Your Heart.  That's 4 1/2 minutes of perfection right there.


          Stones' Can't You Hear Me Knocking? and The Faces' Stay With Me.

          Dada's Dorina

                There is almost nothing that fires me up more than cranking the shi t out of the intro to For those about to rock, except for maybe, Highway to Hell.


                I could list a thousand intros I love , but those will make me grab the knob and turn it up to 11 pretty much faster than anything else.


                Tgey will also make me grab the radio knob and turn that up too!

                  Someone is going to get blamed for this.

                  I would like for that person to not be me.
