    I saw Die Hard with a Vengeance in a cinema in Manhattan when it first came out.

    Die Hard is a nice try, but I don’t think anything comes close to this

    Original version is worth a watch too

    +1 The Doors The End in Apocalypse Now.

    Trainspotting with Lust for Life is cracking too

    My favourite would be Rosie Perez dancing to Public Enemy in Do the Right Thing

    I forgot about this one. One of my favourite films. Great opening credits and song.

    Can’t remember the film name but the playover was Roll Away the Stone by Mott the Hoople. If Werewolves of London was at the intro of a Paul Newman film then I’d go for that (was it a sequel to the Hustler?).

    … what is your choice?

    I’m going for Nancy Sinatra’s Bang Bang in the opening sequences of Kill Bill Vol. 1.

    Dawn of the Dead – When the Man Comes Around.

    Not the best film but the song sets an apocalyptic feel to it.

    Not quite the opening scene, but the OH **** moment when he wanders out of the hospital for the first time in 28 Days Later, accompanied by Massive Attack always does it pretty well for me…

    It’s not quite the opening song but ‘Uncle F**ker’ by Terence and Philip at the start of the South Park Movie was just incredible.

    Lots of good ones already – Another Danny Boyle: the Free Blood track starting 127 Hours worked brilliantly, I thought.
    I’d bought the album a few months before seeing the film and was thinking ‘This is damn familiar!’

    As far as all time faves though, this is up there
