Top 5 Vocal Intros Of All Time

It’s all in the voice

Songs are usually started with an instrumental riff and not many rock classics actually begin with vocals, so yes, it’s a rare gem when song intros consist of just the singer’s voice. When you think of vocal intros, one iconic rock classic may come to mind and that is Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” (which is part of this list). Freddie Mercury’s masterpiece has such a memorable and recognizable multi-part vocal harmony that was so ahead of its time. Not many may know any other hits that have vocal intros so here’s a list of the best rock songs that began with just the human instrument, the voice, to refresh your memory.

“Renegade” by Styx


“All Guns Blazing” by Judas Priest

“Black Dog” by Led Zeppelin

“Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen

“Kicked in the Teeth” by AC/DC
