I'm new here - hi all.

The Clash - London Calling (suprised no-one has mentioned this yet)
Rancid - Killing Zone
Simon and Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence
Smashing Pumpkins - Zero

Something by Megadeath would seem appropriate too.

There's a song by A Perfect Circle. It's called "Counting Bodies Like Sheep To The Rhythm Of The War Drums". In a nutshell, dark, gritty and.. hmm... well... anti-war, but it almost sounds as though it's being played/sung amidst the footsteps of an approaching army, by a soldier or something. I think it has an excerpt of one of Adolf Hitlers' speeches in the background, plus general crowd noise.. It's hard to describe, but if you listen to it you'll understand right away...It's... perfect.

i do indeed mean hius greatest hit :P
perfect soundtrack for mass global thermonuclear war!


Technically, if it's global thermonuclear war, it has to be mass global thermonuclear war. Surely you can't have a localised global thermonuclear war ;)

/tired waggish pedant


lol /counters

2 countrys accross the world would be global thermo nuclear war, more that 2 would be mass global thermo nuclear war :P


I'd call war between two countries "international thermonuclear war" ;)

The theme from M.A.S.H., right?

Also, there is a track from Donnie Darko -- "Mad World" -- that would be appropriate, but I don't know who the artist is.

xander


Gary Jules. And I beleive the original was done by Tears for Fears.


The original was indeed done by Tears for Fears, but I'd say the Gary Jules version is a good deal better. And Donnie Darko ftw.

Here's my set of additions:

Audioslave - Set It Off
Bright Eyes - Road to Joy
Goldfinger - 99 Red Balloons (English & German cover of Néna's)
Incubus - Made for TV Movie
Juno Reactor - Navras
Marty O'Donnel (Halo) - The Gun Pointed at the Head of the Universe
Nine Inch Nails - The Day The World Went Away
Nine Inch Nails - Burn (this for the person pressing the Big Red Button)
OutKast - Bombs Over Baghdad
The Postal Service - We Will Become Silhouettes
Rage Against the Machine - Calm Like A Bomb
System Of A Down - Boom!

That's an interesting selection. I think that is a great addition to the list. Any particular reason you chose it?

Only one song -
The Arcade Fire - Funeral - In The Back Seat :wink: Evokes such contrary feelings, very suitable.
Ok, and lots of jazz, it's just such a free genre...And its use in nuclear situations has already been proven.Image
