The Internets love the lists, and here is another cool one that your station might "riff" off of yourself. From CTV's site yesterday, here are the 15 greatest opening riffs in modern rock (note the 'Modern" qualifier, you "Back in Black" fans). Hard to argue with unforgettable openers like "Are You Gonna Go My Way," "Enter Sandman" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit." This would also be a cool phoner for a Classic Rock station--and it would be pretty hard, in my book, to argue with "Back in Black," "Highway to Hell" or any of, oh, two hundred other AC/DC tracks from back in the day. My personal guilty pleasure--the opening to "Stone in Love" by Journey. But I grew up in North Podunk, Maine, so I can be forgiven. What are yours?
