Spinner Rates Best Opening Lyrics

Spinner just released this list of best opening lyrics:

10. "Tommy used to work on the docks"--Bon Jovi's 'Livin' on a Prayer'
9. "Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine"--Patti Smith's 'Gloria'
8. "Well, it's one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, now go, cat, go!"--Carl Perkins' 'Blue Suede Shoes'
7. "In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey"--Beck's 'Loser'
6. "Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?"--The Carpenters' 'Close to You'
5. "Don't call it a comeback"--LL Cool J's 'Mama Said Knock You Out!'
4. "Well, she was just seventeen -- you know what I mean"--The Beatles' 'I Saw Her Standing There'
3. "Hey, ho, let's go!"--The Ramones' 'Blitzkrieg Bop'
2. "I was born in a cross-fire hurricane"--The Rolling Stones' 'Jumpin' Jack Flash'
1. "She's a very kinky girl"--Rick James' 'Superfreak' 'Scuze me???

Disagree? What's missing?

I think this list is lacking for Nirvana, particularly,
"Load up on guns and bring your friends..." - Smells Like Teen Spirit
Your turn...
