the intro to "3's A Crowd" by local boys Quik is quite humourous but thats an ep so that doesn't count.

Probably

The opener for "Deja Entendu" by Brand New

Serve the servents-Nirvana

Looking For Someone/Dancing with the Moonlit Knight by Genesis

21st Century Schizoid Man/Red by King Crimson (although I always thought One More Red Nightmare would sound good as an opener as well)

Speak to Me - Pink Floyd (though somehow I don't think there's anywhere else it could go)

Den of Iniquity - Norman Haines Band

What's the best album opener? A belter to hook the listener or something more held back to ease them in and lead up to the album's climax? Depends on the album I suppose.
