I’m having a gathering tomorrow, and I’m trying to put together music to take my party from burger burning and frisbee throwing in the evening to drunken insanity and passing out in the yard by 4 am. I’ve got a handle on the whole thing, except for the fireworks show. Once it gets dark, I’ve got about half an hour’s worth of not-legal-in-my-state pyrotechnics to let off. It’s going be a prodigious show worthy of a substantial soundtrack.
While I’d love to choreograph the whole deal, the best I can hope for is setting the proper mood music. Some powerful stuff with lots of meaningless lyrics like “boom” and “bang”.
So I request the help of the esteemed SDMB cultural experts. I’m looking for songs that fit the following criteria:
- Hard rock/Metal
- About fire, burning, explosions, blowing shit up, or raw displays of power
- Not unreasonably offensive or vulgar (it’s generally an audience I don’t care about offending, but gratuitous lyrics may detract from the show)
- Age of the song is not a factor, the audience is bound to appreciate new stuff as well as some classics.
Some candidates so far…just a few obvious ones, and I like Rammstein =] …
Saliva - “Click Click Boom”
P.O.D. - “Boom”
Metallica - “Fuel”
AC/DC - “T.N.T.”
Rammstein - “Feuer Frei!”
I’m sure you all can do better…so have at it. Thanks in advance for your assistance. I owe a beer to those with the good suggestions.
