I've been ruined by Nirvana / Pixies and love a song that starts quietly and then at some point guitars/bass/drums/gut-wrenching noise kicks in at massive volume. Obvious examples are Smells Like Teen Spirit but also Minerva by The Deftones, My Life is an Accident by Six by Seven and Soon by My Bloody Valentine.
Post some more please!
