Opening bass riffs.
So, As I was perusing the memory tubes, I saw a video of LoverBoy and "Turn Me Loose". I noticed the opening was a BASS and not a guitar rift.

What other songs have a highly recognizable BASS rift? (If that is even a thing)

5.

Re: Opening bass riffs.

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

"Sober" - Tool
"Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" - Primus
"Would?" - Alice in Chains
You can keep a wooden stake in your trunk
On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.

Not necessarily opening but right after and most recognizable part of the song.

I didn't miss it. I just wanted to leave something for the little people!

How about some love for the Law & Order or Seinfeld theme songs?
