One of my daily blog reads, Borepatch, has a rather interesting post that poses a rather interesting question. Basically, if you were about to “drop the hammer,” so to speak, and unleash a firestorm of lead and destruction upon your foes, what would you have blaring over your headset or your loudspeaker setup? Like Col. Kilgore from Apocalypse Now.
Having thought it over, if I were swooping down on Charlie Point, or about to lay the hurt on some Taliban or AQ, this is what I’d have playing in the background:
Led Zeppelin – “Immigrant Song”
Iron Maiden – “Run To The Hills”
Rammstein – “Zerstören”
Metallica – “For Whom the Bell Tolls”
AC/DC – “Thunderstruck” & “For Those About to Rock”
The Clash – “Rock the Casbah”
Johnny Cash – “God’s Gonna Cut You Down”
Wagner – “Ride of the Valkyries”
Gustav Holst – “The Planets: Mars, Bringer of War”
Tchaikovsky – “1812 Overture”
And I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few, too.
How ’bout you, fair readers? What would be on your “Drop the Hammer” playlist?
