    I'd have to go with Hole In The Sky because of the dramatic and evil chatter before the song kicks in.
    We had a student DJ play album cuts before High School started in the mornings. I brought in Sabotage and kept bugging him forever until he finally played Symptom for me.
    Also I'll never forget how Symptom Of The Universe kicked off the 78 tour. That was one on the highlights of my senses and soul!

      "Back Street Kids" is a fantastic opener ...

        always thought Heart stole the riff for Barracuda!

          Always thought that for Technical Ecstasy, Gypsy would've made an excellent opener instead of Back Street Kids.

            Barracuda is my favourite Heart song. I consider Back Street Kids to be a 'fair' Black Sabbath song; not bad, but nothing special.

            Black Sabbath cannot exist without these Individuals in the lineup: Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Ozzy Osbourne or Ronnie James Dio or Ian Gillan.

              Hey Ted, I love Back Street Kids, just think Gypsy would make a great album opener or like Ozzy Chevy said, Rock and Roll Doctor.

                Ted , it's actually a great track , the vocals and drums are excellent .... and that transition moment in the middle of the song is genius !

                Remember "All Moving Parts" is also the opening track to this album ... less common , but still the album opener as well.

                  Speaking of songs sounding like other songs, I've always felt like the beginning of Always Somewhere by the Scorpions sounded a lot like the beginning of Simple Man by Skynard

                      An interview I saw on Youtube with Nancy Wilson she said Hearts Barracuda riff was taken from a Nazareth song This Way Tonight and that the band Naz wasn't very happy about it! LOL ...

                        Black Sabbath and War Pigs for me.

                          The name of the Nazareth song is: This Flight Tonight.
