metal hammer mags cool idea...




excellent lists.....

Top Ten: Favourite ’side one, track one’s (opening songs)
Friday, September 12th, 2008 by Metal Hammer
The Metal Hammer staff pick their favourite ’side one, track one’s. The only rules are that you can’t use the same artist more than once, interludes are discounted (for example, the first track on Slipknot’s ‘Iowa’ would be ‘People = Shit’ and not ‘(515)’) and the tracks must come from an album and not a greatest hits or live compilation (or a playlist you’ve got on your iPod etc.). Here’s the lists and as always, add you own lists and abuse for us in the comment section.
