What playlist for killing terrorists?

US special forces say the Taliban hates heavy metal. I knew there was a reason I didn’t like those guys.

Update: I decided to create a play list of 10 songs entitled killing terrorists. It’s below.

Faction – Candiria
Black Label – Lamb Of God
When Slaves Revolt – Earth Crisis
Destroy Everything – Hatebreed
Hellbent (On War) – Throwdown
Pawns – Dead By Wednesday
Big Wiggly Style – The Devil Wears Prada
Fueled By Hate – Droid
Davidian – Machine Head
Turning Point – Superjoint Ritual

    “Meanwhile, Lieutenant Colonel Brian Christmas, the commander of US Marines in northern Marjah, said he was unaware of the musical psychological operations.”

    Somewhere, upthere, Patton is warming up his good hand for this guy.

  2. Bobby Says:

    oops, forgot the rest of the quote

    “It’s inappropriate. I’m going to ask this to stop right now,” he added

  3. ModlCitzn Says:

    That is totally bad-ass.

    Dying Fetus – One Shot, One Kill, might be a good one to add to that.

  4. Gregory Morris Says:

    Hold the Pig Steady.

  5. homebru Says:

    And that makes it official. I am over the hill.

    In the above list, I can’t tell which are the band names and which the song titles.

    I shall now retire to an interlude with Glenn Miller.

  6. SayUncle Says:

    well, in your defense, not a lot of metal bands see a lot of radio play.

  7. Jester Says:

    I am the Law, from Anthrax seems appropriate
    for such a list…

  8. Ed Says:

    Um, how could you forget “Die, MF Die” by Dope?

  9. Freiheit Says:

    Our glorious overlord has good taste in music.

    “well, in your defense, not a lot of ACTUAL metal bands see a lot of radio play.” – FTFY. Genre labels are vague, but theres a lot of “metal” on the radio that is really quite tame.

    Pandora has a good selection of metal. Its nothing like used to be, but still good.

    Die (And Die Now) by Devildriver.

  10. Aaron Spuler Says:

    Awesome list. Good to see Droid getting some love. Might want to throw some As I Lay Dying or some Dry Kill Logic in the list as well.

  11. Aaron Says:

    Indestructible by Disturbed is ‘tame, but the sentiment would fit.

  12. IllTemperedCur Says:

    “Mouth for War” and “Message in Blood” from Pantera

    Kind of obvious, but Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper” for us old guys over 40.

    Back in the late 80s, my old Infantry squad leader, the Megadeth fanatic, made us memorize the lyrics to “Peace Sells”. All through the day, he’d randomly come up to us and yell a line from the song into our faces. If we couldn’t immediately recite the next line, we were down on the ground doing pushups. Great fun.

  13. Rabbit Says:

    I’d think that anything Orcs would dance to should be included.

  14. JJR Says:

    I’d probably cue up some Rammstein…Heavy Metal + German just seem made for each other.

  15. rick Says:

    “Hold the Pig Steady.”

    heh – are certain private contractors getting PUFFs for confirmed terrorist kills?

  16. Mikee Says:

    Everything I know about heavy metal I learned from watching Metalocalypse on the Cartoon Network. While I would suppose almost any tune by Death Clock (or Deth Klok? I just dunno) would likely cause eyebleeds and testicle explosions at even a moderate volume, I don’t think the band is actually, you know, real. Still, they are my choice for anti-Taliban music, if the “I Love You, You Love Me” song from Barney the Dinosaur is ruled out.

  17. Aaron Spuler Says:

    Mikee, I have 2 Dethklok cd’s and they are good stuff.

    Should probably add some Fear Factory to the list Uncle…

  18. SayUncle Says:

    Should probably add some Fear Factory to the list

    Depends. Any song he actually tries to sing and not scream in sounds awful.

  19. Michael Hawkins Says:

    My top10 (not in order)

    Burn your crosses, Sabaton
    Holy wars, Megadeth
    Table round (Together), Grave digger
    Balls to the wall, Accept
    New religion, Black Label Society
    Alone, Judas Priest.
    Sex death and money, Alice Cooper
    Go to Hell, Alice Cooper
    Flash of the blade, Iron maiden
    Soldiers of the wasteland, Dragonforce

    Those of you acquainted with a certain band from Birmingham may say: “hey, one of those isn’t quite like the others”, well, that one most closely conforms to my personal opinion.

  20. Captain Holly Says:

    Can’t believe no one posted “Enter Sandman” yet.

    That would be a great song to blast from speakers on a helicopter, a la Apocalypse Now. Course, you’d lose the tactical advantage at that point…

  21. Dixie Says:

    “I’d probably cue up some Rammstein…Heavy Metal + German just seem made for each other.”

    I came here to say this. Feuer Frei would be oddly appropriate.

  22. mike w. Says:

    How about “America, Fuck Yeah!”

  23. Chuck Z Says:

    It’s really a bad idea–anything that upsets the locals–they guys we’re trying to get on our good side, to help us fight, is a bad idea.
    Would you like a neighbor who blasted Ricky Martin 24-7, despite your repeated requests not to? Would it piss you off that it was waking up your kids at night? Would you maybe gripe to other neighbors about it? Would you side with the only people around who were willing to do anything about it?
    It shows a lack of understanding of the environment, the mission, and the basic principles of Counter-Insurgency.

  24. Borepatch Says:

    Not metal, but “Live and let Die” has the right attitude.

  25. Sabot Says:

    Counting Bodies Like Sheep To the Rhythm of…

    By Puscifer (Don’t like their politics but the tune is enough to make any insurgent go nuts)

  26. kiwipete Says:

    Call me old school – but here’s my picks for a good war sountrack.

    Nailed to the Gun – Fight
    Battery – Metallica
    Burn in Hell – Judas Priest
    Book of Heavy Metal – Dream Evil
    Holy Wars – Megadeth
    War Ensemble – Slayer
    2 Minutes to Midnight – Iron Maiden
    War Pigs – Black Sabbath (Dio version)
    Bodies – Drowning Pool
    Down with the Sickness – Disurbed

  27. Pop N Fresh Says:

    no The Trooper or Raining Blood?

  28. Billll Says:

    Lunatic Fringe – Red Ryder

    Not metallic enough I guess.

  29. Bugs Says:

    New Millenium Cyanide Christ – Meshuggah
    Get Some Go Again – Rollins Band
    Super Junky Monkey – Buckin’ the Bolts
    Goin’ to the Liquor Store – The Urge
    The Trooper – Iron Maiden
    Whiskey River – Willie Nelson
    Rock ‘n Roll McDonalds – Wesley Willis
    Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition –
    Blitzkrieg Bop – The Ramones
    By Demons Be Driven – Pantera
    Just a Gigolo – David Lee Roth

    This IS PsyOps, after all.

  30. Old Doctor Weasel Says:

    I like these

    Blitzkrieg Bop – The Ramones
    She Wolf – Megadeth
    War Pigs – Black Sabbath
    For Whom the Bell Tolls – Metallica
    Breakin the Law – Judas Priest

    but that’s just because my band played them.

    and maybe add
    Bulls on Parade – Rage Against the Machine
    (hate they lyrics, love playing the bass line)

  31. Robert Says:

    Can’t believe no one posted “Enter Sandman” yet.

    And in that vein, “Seek and Destroy” would also work well.

  32. ATLien Says:

    one word: MASTODON

    And chuck, if it were me, the locals would have been vaporized years ago.

  33. B Smith Says:

    There was a meme awhile back: “You’re trapped in a mall after the zombie apocalypse. You can have any one weapon (with unlimited ammo), program any one song to play continuously on the muzak system, and have any one partner to fight alongside…”
    My answers were:
    Weapon: 12-ga. pump (good destructive round, plus that racking sound is just too cool)
    Song: “Close To You” by the Carpenters. (Really, what would inspire you more to killing frenzy?)
    Partner: Nancy Pelosi. (First shot booms out, BLAM!! Me: “Oh, damn, Nancy…my bad…”)

  34. Peter Says:

    War is the answer by five finger death punch. Semper fi mother f***er semper fi

  35. Jerry Says:

    Godsmack, anyone?


  36. Aaron Spuler Says:

    Wow, can’t believe that Cannibal Corpse didn’t make the list. Back in the early 90’s (high school) they were pretty much all I listened to for a few years.
