Default Songs of the Guard

Inspired by a topic we had on the tau boards a while ago i thought we needed one aswell. what songs remind you of them imperial guard? for me it would be Hell March from Command and Conquer Red Alert.

Tune to "She's coming down the mountian"

We're gonna kill the heretics when they come! We're gonna kill the heretics when they come! We're gonna kill the heretics, we're gonna kill the heretics, oh we're gonna kill the heretics when they come!

Once I found a song from communist russia and played it. Think bleak but hopeful... just like the IG!

The opening to Angel's Holocaust.


Aside from that... Battle Metal and One More by Turisas are good... or Manowar offer up Call to Arms, Warriors of The World, Brothers of Metal, Kingdom Come, Battle Hymns... the list goes on.


I also find, for reasons unknown, that Bon Jovi's It's My Life is good. It's the theme-tune to an Armoured Company I wrote up.

Hmm... when I hear Battle Hymns I think of a massive force of Kislevite Lancers.

I can't really think of any off the top of my head... I'll browse through my library later though.

Almost anything performed by the Red Army Choir works. Except for Catachans, who will have to do with american rock, ca 1968-1972.

My online gaming has a war mix. Most of that would be appropriate too i guess. Ride of the Valkyries, Tsaikovsky's 1812, you know, all of the clichéd ones.

Here is a list of the stuff I think fit as an Imperial Guardsmen song:
-Red Army Choir Naval Hymn
-Flight of the Valkyries
-Paint It Black (My personel favorite for the Death Korp )
-Duck and Run / 3 Doors Down
-Stand Up / Trapt
-Blow Me Away / Breaking Benjamin
-Blood Upon The Risers (this is a Paratrooper song..I have the lyrics if needed)
-Most military Cadences

Thats what I think an Imperial Guard song should be.

-Sgt. Schultz

Actually, mine is Bungle in the Jungle by Jethro Tull. Neither have anything to do with war, but they've got the word "jungle" in them.


The All-father protects...

...from venemous snakes

for catachans, any song from Forrest Gump would do, and for the rest of 'em, I'd have to agree with Wargamer.
