Even if you are not a big fan of rock and roll music, there are some opening lines to songs that grab your attention and keep it. Some of the greatest rock bands in the world have crafted masterpieces, but their opening lines leave a little something to be desired. The following list is purely subjective, but it bears the question, what do you think is the best opening line in rock and roll?

 

1. "It was 1989 my thoughts were short my hair was long, caught somewhere between a boy and man. She was seventeen but she was far from in-between, it was summertime iin Northern Michigan."

Kid Rock, "All Summer Long"

How many times have you heard this song and you daydream to when you were a kid, when summers were carefree and there were no responsibilities but to hang out and have fun? Kid Rock captures this perfectly on the opening lines of "All Summer Long," his 2008 hit from the CD "Rock n Roll Jesus." Mashed seamlessly with the powerful and memorable chords of "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd and Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London," it's an ode to Middle-American country summers as well as one hell of a great song.
