Fallujah Hot Tracks

If you were a Marine DJ in Fallujah, which songs would you play at the Sunni Gunmen?

Here's my list.

Rock the Casbah - The Clash - Of course.
Closer - Nine Inch Nails
Teenage Lobotomy - Ramones
Take Me To The Backseat - The Donnas
Freedom of Choice - Devo
Close (To the Edit) - Art of Noise
Kill the Poor- The Dead Kennedys
In America - The Charlie Daniels Band
Star Spangled Banner - Jimi Hendrix
Irish Drinking Song - Dropkick Murphys
It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) - R.E.M.
God Will - Lyle Lovett
Party At Ground Zero - Fishbone
In A Gadda Da Vida - Iron Butterfly
Into You Like A Train - Psychedelic Furs
Welcome Back My Friends - Emerson, Lake and Palmer

And one I probably wouldn't play.

Don't Fear The Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult

Posted by Bigwig at April 17, 2004 01:11 PM | TrackBack
First time visitor to House Hraka? Wondering if everything we produce could possibly be as brilliant/stupid/evil/pedantic/insipid/inspired as the post you just read? Check out the Hraka Essentials, the (mostly) reader-selected guide to Hraka's best posts, and decide for yourself.

You forgot a couple good ones.

Loser - Beck

I Shot the Sheriff - Bob Marley

Hangin' From the Gallows Tree - Zeppelin (tho the 192? Lightnin' Hopkins version probably sounds more haunting)

War Pigs - Black Sabbath

Jerusalem - Sinead O'Connor

Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting - Elton John

Ballroom Blitz - Sweet ("and the man in the back said everyone attack, and it turned into a ballroom blitz...")

Ballad of the Green Berets - Barry Sadler (Let 'em choke on good, wholesome corn)

And just for shits and giggles - New York, New York, Sinatra.

A Country Boy Can Survive - Bocephus

Move - Ludacris

Gangland - Iron Maiden

I'm Mad - EPMD

Set up a giant video wall. Play Britney Spears videos until their turbans explode.

Posted by: Man Mountain Molehill at April 17, 2004 07:36 PM

Here's a replacement for Don't Fear the Reaper. Cities on Flame (With Rock and Roll) - Blue Oyster Cult

Some for the words, some for the sound:

Boom, Boom, Out Go the Lights - Little Walter

Seether - Veruca Salt

Nantucket Sleighride - Mountain

Gone Away - The Offspring

Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana (Here we are. Now entertain us.)

Bone Machine - The Pixies (And then you try and molest me in parking lot.)

A triple from Billy Squier - In the Dark, Everybody Wants You, and Rock Me Tonight

Three Strange Days - School of Fish

Bullet the Blue Sky - U2 They meant it to be anti-American, but it works either way.

Runnin' With the Devil - Van Halen

Posted by: Bruce H. at April 17, 2004 09:40 PM

Your Time is Gonna Come -Zep

Posted by: Jim at April 17, 2004 10:51 PM

I guess "Smack My Bitch Up" by Prodigy would go over pretty well, too. Grand Funk Railroad's "American Band" wouldn't suck, either. (We'll come into your town, we'll come to party it down...etc).

Posted by: Blackavar at April 17, 2004 11:05 PM

Willam Hung singing "She Bang".

If that doesn't get the insurgents enraged enough fling themselves onto a Bradley nothing will.

Posted by: H.D. Miller at April 18, 2004 10:39 AM

Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden

Posted by: MojoMark at April 19, 2004 12:19 AM

Stranglehold - Ted Nugent

Don't Tread on Me - Metallica

And as a special request for Mr. Al-Sadr: King Nothing - Metallica

Posted by: Captain Holly at April 19, 2004 12:57 AM

Oh, and one to remind them of our survelliance capabilities: Electric Eye - Judas Priest

Up here in space
I'm looking down on you
My lasers trace
Everything you do

You think you've private lives
think nothing of the kind
There is no true escape
I'm watching all the time

I'm made of metal
My circuits gleam
I am perpetual
I keep the country clean

Posted by: Captain Holly at April 19, 2004 01:03 AM

I would have thought anything by Metalica, Slayer or any other speed metal bands would be good. Of course, if you really want the "we're going to war and kickin' ass and takin' names" effect, have the Marines come flying in helicopters while playing "The Ride of the Valkeries".

Posted by: El-ahrairah at April 26, 2004 12:34 PM

Remind them of exactly whom they are fighting.

“Stars and Stripes Forever” by the Marine Band.

A good mix of the insane and the inane --

I agree with I Shot the Sheriff; add
Panama -- Van Halen (nod to Drew Carey)
Thank God I'm a Country Boy -- John Denver
"I wanna rock and roll all night" over and over and over
Do You Really Want to Hurt Me -- Culture Club
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun -- Cindy Lauper
