I don’t know about you but whenever I raid I tend to put some music in the background. Not too loud and never for the whole duration of the raid but over the years I’ve sort of always made some sort of playlist for the various raids I’ve been in and most of the time each raid would have its theme song that I would have to play at least once.
Now the reasons for inclusion in this very exclusive list are varied. Sometimes its just because the theme fitted and other times there’s more obscure reasons like a comment someone made, an inside joke or simply because I got the song stuck in my head. Here’s my list of theme songs for the past few expansions and I’d be curious to hear about yours too.
Molten Core: Ring of Fire / Johny Cash
BlackwingLair: The roof is on fire / Bloodhound gang
Ahn’Qiraj (both 20/40) : Creeping Death / Metallica
Zul’Gurub :Welcome to the Jungle / Guns n Roses
Karazhan: Skullcrusher mountain / Jonathan Coulton
Gruul’s Lair: The lumberjack’s song / Monty Python
Naxxramas: Safety Dance / Men without hats
Ulduar: The frayed ends of sanity / Metallica
Icecrown citadel: Hardware store / Weird Al Yankovic
Twilight Bastion: Rime of the ancient Mariner / Iron Maiden*
*it’s a bit early to say if this one will stick but I had that playing last friday and I would just replace the part “Water, water, everywhere!” with “Fire, Fire, everywhere!”. Seemed fitting.
