I'm listening to "The Song Remains the Same" off of LZ's House of the Holy. What a way to kick off an album.

What are some of the other of the greatest songs that announce/kick off a studio album with authority?

I love the double bang of Take the Highway and Can't You See from the Marshall Tucker Band.

I was think of the very same thing when I read the thread title.

"Birds of Fire" off the album of the same name by The Mahavishnu Orchestra springs to mind as well.

"Firing Line" is a super underrated song, and was a great way for the band to reintroduce themselves.

"A Hard Day's Night" has to be in the mix - that chord says everything you need to know.

"I Just Want To Make Love To You" on Electric Mud - I don't care what the purists say, I never get tired of that album.

"Walked on Gilded Splinters" kicks off an album like no other, and it doesn't let up. People give Beck a lot of **** for using the drum beat, but can anyone deny this wasn't on the minds of everyone involved in Gregg's "Whipping Post" on Searching for Simplicity?

"Preachin' Blues" is the highlight for me on Derek's Out of the Madness album. The way Derek plays that old Son House lick is pretty much the same, but not at all, at the same time.

"Gimme Shelter" is pretty epic for a pretty epic album.
