I don't even like U2, but that is a bad-ass intro.

"Mountain Jam" - Allman Brothers. They couldn't fit the song on At the Fillmore East, so they just faded it out at the end. Then they faded it in on Eat A Peach.

I've also always liked the layered entrances on "Magnificent", though I know that a lot of fans and critics aren't as fond of that particular album.
(The video is pretty amazing as well.)

Fleetwood Mac's Station Man. Less than 40 seconds but sets up the rest of the song.

There are...


...a bunch from Van Halen /Van Hagar: 'Hot for Teacher', 'Right Now', 'Finish What Ya Started', 'Runaround' and 'Poundcake' (that features a 'Frankenstrat' painted electric drill used on Eddie's guitar strings).

Except... none of those are fade-ins...

"Hot for Teacher" - starts right in with the infamous drum intro.
"Right Now" - starts right in with the piano
"Finish What Ya Started" - starts with Alex counting them in "One- Two, One-Two-Three-Four.
"Runaround"- starts immediately with the G-A-G-D riff
"Poundcake" - doesn't fade in either, it starts with a Makita 9-volt cordless drill motor hovering over the DiMarzio Custom Humbucker bridge pick-up of an Ernie Ball Music Man guitar. No FrankenStrat at all.

FTR, he had drill and guitar painted his signature red, white, and black striped pattern for the video. He kept the drill, but I have never seen that particular guitar again.

They did it on "One Of These Days" from the "Meddle" album too, & "Dogs" on "Animals" but "Shine On.." stands above 'em all!
Yeah, you said it!

Since the thread was bumped anyway, and I've been on a '90s rock kick, I figured I'd nominate Matthew Sweet's 'Girlfriend' as a candidate for having a decent if short fade-in to a (IMO) pretty rocking song (the song does fail the best fade-out test, what with not having any)
Cool video as well, among the earliest to incorporate anime (but not the first). VEVO video, so sorry for the ads.
