Julie is taking suggestions for music to accompany both the recent CAFF and upcoming Armageddon war videos. Suggest as many songs as you like, but keep it focused please. Rather than listing a song just because you like it, watch the existing videos and try to find a few songs appropriate for that pace.

A good recommend for Arg 05: Green Day's Holiday. Why? Because part of a song goes like this:

...like an ammageddon flame.  The shame, the people who die without a name...


Another that you could use for either is Sandstorm by Darude (note: It is an old song (like 2001) so you might have trouble finding it.)because it is fairly long (longer than a lot of songs, but not like 10 minutes long.)

Another thing could be that you could use different songs for different types of clips: like when you are at the meeting spot you could have calmer music and during battle more...umm...less calm music.

If you go with Sandstorm I have an mp3 of it, for some reason or another, on my computer. I could email it to you if you want it.

Contra:Shattered Soldier for PS2 has some pretty hard songs. I could upload a few tracks if you guys would like them.

"Run to the Hills," by Iron Maiden (3m57s). Or "Power of Thy Sword," by Manowar (7m50s). Wouldn't that be a lark? ^_^

Real suggestions:

Bankshot - Operation Ivy (1m33s)
(Instrumental, fast pace, but short song)

Instrumental Disease - The Godless Wicked Creeps (4m46s)
(Instrumental, may be a bit too hick for you)

West End Riot - The Living End (3m52s)
(Relatively fast rock song, "With the guns that they made and the caps that they stole they would fight to their death.")

Toccata in Dm - The Toy Dolls (2m38s)
(Classic arrangement, fast british-punk instrumental)

Double Dragon (theme) - The Neskimos (4m10s)
(Classic rock. Same goes for their rendition of Airman and Woodman. ^_^)

Street Fighting Man - Rage Against the Machine (4m42s)
(Reasonable pace, classically recognizable)

Or, we could rock highly, and use that "Fire" song from the Mortal Kombat movie... Hehe... Bad times. :mellow:

Regardless of our suggestions, it comes down to your decision, personal music tastes, and personal feelings on the war itself, so I hope you make a good one!

I'll list some songs with a good intro (so you could show some people doing stuff)and that would fit pretty well.

Apulanta - Bring Me Down

Blink 182 - Carousel

Box Car Racer - Tiny Voices

Those are just my opinions. I do like the idea for the Halo soundtrack but I'm not sure if any of the songs have enough of a steady beat/rhythm to work. I hope this turns out good.

Queen - Stone Cold Crazey or Hammer to Fall are always good.

The metallica cover of Stone Cold Crazy is far superior for the perposes of the nerf vid. However hammer to fall has the whole crazy nam vet driving a kickin' rad car about to get skewered by the kurgan kind of thing going on, so that could work too.

Alright, I know that the last video had "Believe" in it, but there are still some sweet Chemical Brothers songs that would go with the flow:

1.) Chemical Beats (Singles 93-03 (Disc 1) - A good solid beat that rocks
2.) The Boxer (Push the Button) - A fast pace and happy song

Also, another good idea would be NIN's "Hand that Feeds". I love that damn song.

The Living End are my favorite band. Zero, I love you as much a heterosexual man could love another.

That could definately fit with a NERF video, though they couldnt understand the pure awesomeness of TLE unless they heard the song.

...

...

Okay okay... what?!

50 Cent, and Black Eyed Peas?

No no... no.

Anyways, I'd like to suggest a few songs:

It Was Fear of Myself That Made Me Odd - Alexisonfire (First half of the song can be used for less action packed parts of the video, and the second half can be used for short clips of gun fights.

Tom Sawyer - Rush (Certain parts are good for certain moods)

Life In The Fast-Lane - The Eagles (A good classic Rock n' Roll song)

I might think of a few more later.

How ironic, I just got an assload of music off my friend's computer a few weeks ago, and have been listening to several tracks thinking, "damn, this would make an awesome Armageddon theme."

A lot of these classic rock songs are great, but I'm questioning their success as a background song in a Nerf video.

!!! - Me and Guilianni Down by the Schoolyard
(The group's name is pronounced 'chick chick chick' or three other repeatative sounds. A little over nine minutes in length, very long, would probably fit all the footage in)

Franz Ferdinand - 40'
(I know alot of people hate mainstream, but this song rocks and is quite befitting. About three minutes.)

Bond - Explosive
(Orchestratal techno, very fast-paced. About three and a half minutes.)

I'll have some more suggestions when I'm home from work and can browse my iTunes.

-Groove out.

I agree with black wrath on rush. Progressive rock is just what that video needs. I also think that Rage against the machine "Bulls on Parade wouldn't be too bad or hell even "Killing in the name".

Anything from the "Parade of Athletes" album, actually. One of the best mixes I've heard.

No More Mister Nice Guy- Alice Cooper

Crazy Train- if you dont know who this is, seek help. But, for those who dont, Ozzy Osbourne.

Cant touch this- M.C. Hammer

Dont fear the reaper- Blue Oyster Cult

All have a good beat, good rythm, and are overal great for fast paced things.
