So!  What games have you ripped onto your Xbox?  And, specifically, what is that one song that you can consider your "video game anthem"?

Mine pick is funky.  And I'm sure I'll get jeered because of it.  It's on a CD that was released back in 2001.  And it was released during a time when boy bands were supremely popular.

My "video game anthem" would have to be "The Game is Over" by 'N Sync.  No I do not lie.  It really is.  I'm not into that sort of music at all - actually into electronica/ebm/goth/industrial sort of stuff - but this song seriously pumps me up.  If you hate boy bands, I don't caaaare you need to really listen to this song.  It will have you laughing!  "How could you do me like that?  Now the game is over."  "But you'll never win, you'll never win, try again because the game is over."  It has just all kinds of video game jargon incorporated with the stereotypical boy band lyrics along with classic video game "bleeps", "bloops", and "bloips."  Just give it a quick listen!  You owe it to yourself whatever type of music you like!  If you go to amazon.com and click on over to the "Celebrity" cd it's track 3 with a clip.

So what is everyone else's pick for their own "video game music anthem"?  Or what do you all have on your Xbox in terms of music?

*nerd voice* MY VIDEO GAME ANTHEM IS "TUBTHUMPER" BY CHUMBAWAMBA *SNORF* *SNICKER* SNICKER* "I GET KNOCKED DOWN, BUT I GET UP AGAIN" *SNORF* *GIGGLE* *GIGGLE*

I really have no clue where that came from.

Ummmmm good question...I had the Gummi Bears Theme play whenever I scored a TD in ESPN NFL - so in a way, that was my battle cry.

And then, playing Project Gothem Racing 2, I found a really good song on the official soundtrack and I've since then gotten the mp3 and it just gets me in the mood, I really like it, it's called "Tango Shoes" by Biff Naked.  Not a hard song, not an intense song, but it reminds me of how competitive some of our GG PGR2 races got and brings flashbacks.

But I guess the single song that could really put me in the mood, and that describes me as a gamer, would be Rob D's "Clubbed to Death [Kurayamino Mix]" from the first Matrix soundtrack.  I'm sure we all know that one.

actually, I hardly ever use my own songs.  One major exception was for Grand Theft Auto Vice City. I set up a bunch of my favorite songs to listen to while I was riding around: songs by Stevie Ray Vaughn, Tina Turner, Bonnie Raitt, B. B. King, David Sanborn, Eric Clapton, Pavarotti and Friends, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, David Bromberg, and the Afro Celt Sound System.  Sometimes I would start on one of my favorites of those, so I guess those were, sort of, anthems - the "Bang, Bang" one of Sanborn, "Bang on the Drum all Day," or "Riding with the King" - only that last one is it's actual title, probably...

I know "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" would be awesome, but I don't have it on CD! Tongue   I have made a vow, though, to try using more of the XBox's capabilities when I pay the big bucks for the XB2. We'll see...

I have Skinny Puppy's Greatest Hits, Assemblage 23's 'Failure', and Fronline Assembly's 'Implode' on my XBox.  They make for superb racing music.

Not much on my Xbox HD.  Needed some good driving music for PGR2 so I added The Revolt Against Tired Noises and Love & Distortion, both by The Stratford 4.

What a PITA, though.  Takes forever to rip and naming the tracks with the controller even longer.  I would love to see Xbox 2 have some kind of link to CDDB/FreeDB or something similar.  Assuming the HD addon will allow you to continue to rip songs and play them in-game.

i have a huge assortment, of metal, for the most part on there.  Some George Clinton, and assorted other industrial and stuff.  But i really never use it.  I find that the few gmaes that allow for you to ue your own music, either dont make it easy on you to do so, or play them to toned down behind everything, that i would rather just have the game soundtrack.  Its really been on of my main gripes about it.  they made such a huge deal about being able to put your own music in, and now its rare to find a game that does.
