Soundtrack for ICC Challenge

Who likes to listen to music while raiding? I do! Of course I have to keep my WMP set at a volume no higher than "7" so I can hear what people are saying in Vent, but I do still like to have that background noise.

My favorite, though, is when you find those songs that so perfectly match a boss you can't help but laugh and enjoy the kill that much more. Unfortunately, I haven't found the songs for all of the bosses. Just Marrowgar, Lady Deathwhisper, Gunship Battle, Rotface, Blood Queen, Dreamwalker and the Lich King. The other bosses? Well, that's where you come in.

What song do you think has the perfect lyrics, is just funny as all get out, or has epic timing for these bosses? Heck, if you have better ones than I picked for some bosses already, feel free to let me know about those, too! Every suggestion I get, I'll find a link to post under the boss, so we can make the ultimate Icecrown playlist.

Ready? Let's go!

My pick for Gunship is Led Zepplin's Immigrant Song.

Added it in, awesome :)

It's been years since I've heard The Last Saskatchewan Pirate! Great song, very fitting for the Gunship.

My personal choice for the Gunship, in both lyrics and mood, is Aquabats - Captain Hampton. Midget pirates! (aka dwarves!)

I know it's bizarre, but I do actually like the built-in music for raiding, especially what they've come up with for ICC.

I'm probably in the minority, but even "Good news, everyone!" still makes me smile.

Bell said...

@Anhava - it's not bizarre at all! I play with my sounds on and my music playing. That way, if I have lag and have to close my WMP, then I'm still able to listen to something :) And I agree, "Good news everyone!" is my favorite.

I say Abney Park: Airship Pirate for gunship battle. Just because it fits more or less.

Cephalic Carnage - Phantom Pharter

This works for either Blood Prince Council or Blood Queen, you decide: Vampire by Antsy Pants

Silly little vampires :P

@Anhava: "I tink I made an angry poo poo! It gonna blow!" is my favorite :P I quote it all the time, and now one of my guildies has a newborn baby, and every time she has to afk to change a diaper, she says "need a min, angry poo poo". It cracks me up :D

Lich King
Cathedral - Ebony Tears

I'm not a raider so i can't say which fight these would fit, but for epic music you need some Tyr and Amon Amarth
