Six Awful Songs with Amazing Intros

Categories: Nitpick Six

2. Guns N' Roses - "Sweet Child of Mine"

Those warm, buoyant, reverberating notes, echoing in a bright spiraling pattern - it's an intro that sounds like it could be the soundtrack to a meteor shower. The rest of the song, however, is a shrill and insincere waste made by a bunch of clowns. If "Sweet Child of Mine" were a one-night stand it would be awkward, because once those leopard-print pants came off, you'd realize they were filled with greasy diarrhea.

1. Devo - "Gut Feeling"

In a stunning twist ending only worthy of appearing in an M. Night Shyamalan film (or a music-themed list in an alt-weekly), we've included a song which has an intro just as fantastic as the rest of it. A one-night stand with this song would still be uncomfortable, though. Not because it'd wear one of those little red hats or yellow suits to bed, but because of how unworthy you'd find yourself feeling halfway through as your notice your filth tainting its divine beauty. Devo is simply too good for you. You should know that.

Yeah, I won't stand for RHCP being classified as such. Eat some magnets, RFT, and get your shit together.

John Frusciante is a God.... So was Hillel. If this Author cant find 1 song from the RHCP catalog that grabs them by the musical balls... Maybe they have none, And should write about fashion... Maybe be a food or movie critic

Under the Bridge might be a shitty video, but the song is a classic. That might be the RHCP's "growing up" song...

John Frusciante is a great guitarist. The intro to "under the bridge" is one of many great songs he wrote. The whole song is great! Flea too

They don't even have a page for The Pageant anymore. I stopped picking them up a while ago. Even being free that was the only good thing in it and now it isn't it is junk.

This article was so poorly written that if it were a one night stand I'd be ashamed to tell my friends about it.

You can have your opinions, but the Devo reasoning simply makes you a troll. RFT should pay us to read this garbage.

Jeff Buydos, the reason for some is, that maybe, just maybe this is could be the one serious, halfway thoughtful RFT article about music, only to find out that you wasted your time clicking on it. RFT has unforyinately turned into a Millenial freak show.

Watching people get so butt hurt over this is fucking hilarious. Who gives a shit if some dude doesn't like the Red Hot Chili Peppers? Keep writing funny articles Drew.

Oh cool, an angry hipster that gets paid to write articles about how music that isn't really bad at all "sucks" because too many people like it for it to be "cool". Real original. Go listen to an obscure punk album on 8-track on your way to a free-trade coffee shop.

Hell's Bells is no question number 1. As soon as the singing starts, it sucks.

"Black Betty" by Ram Jam starts off kick ass and then completely falls apart as a forgettable mess

I always thought "Spirit in the Sky" by Norman Greenbaum had a really bad ass intro guitar chord that is ruined and really disappoints once the lyrics start.

Jake Parsons

"Crazy Train" cannot be on the list simply because of the solo.....Ozzy didn't help the song, but Randy made it immortal for the intro and solo alone

The chili peppers only have one good piece of a song in their entire catalogue? This guy sucks. I'd love to hear what his musical tastes include
