The topic is a misnomer.

If its most viewed cracktro, then its hands down the Fairlight/Angel Dawn one that Gaston used, Renegade used and Moi used, no question no doubt, because it was used so often and very often on the front of games you'd actually want to keep.

However, if its most viewed as in which cracktros would get repeat views just for the cracktro, then thats subjective but probably quite easy to guess:

(some of these cracktros are forever linked to certain games, others I mention the games so you know which intro)

Lemmings/SWIV - Skid Row
Super Off Road Racer - Paradox
Nitro - Horizon
Robocop 3 - Fairlight
Moonstone - Melon Dezign/Crystal
Interceptor - Unit A
Shadow of the Beast/Shinobi - Paranoimia
Paradroid '90 - Classic
Xenon 2 - Bamiga Sector One
R-Type 2 - Skid Row
Rodland - Crystal
The Immortal - Paradox
Desert Strike - Paradox
Vroom - The Company / Vision Factory

To name but a few, but yes, Dan's cracktro for Lemmings quite simply is timeless, not only because its a great cracktro, but it was attached to every cracked copy of Lemmings, quite possibly one of the Amigas finest games.

IIRC the background gfx in that intro were generated randomly.
Slightly offtopic, anyone knows the composer of the music here? I'd like that one in my little mod-collection.

So Dan's more famous for this cracktro than for Chuck Rock and Wonderdog?

I’d say whatever cracktro was shown on X-Copy was the most viewed ;-)

Dan was famous before he joined Core Design.

Core Design poached him to try and conquer piracy (This is completely fabricated by myself)

It's almost true, he hid some 'nasty' messages to crackers (Skol/ATX? :P ) in at least 1 of his Core games... how quickly he forgot about making a cracktro for the most prolific pirate group at that time
