    Black Ice by Stu Hamm, and No More TEars already taken.

    I like this one- not only for the intro but cool counterpoint to Steve’s guitar throughout-

    It's not big or clever but 'makes' the song!

    Not sure if it's the best bass intro ever, but this instantly jumped to mind when I read the thread title. And it certainly defines the song. The actual intro is The Ides of March but that's not a bass intro, heh.

    This first hit me in my first Iron Maiden gig back in the day. I hadn't even listened to Killers back then so you can imagine the shock seeing and hearing Steve Harris a few metres in front of me doing it first thing in the gig.

    Agreed, and one of my favorites too! It is only #14 in the OP video. :(
