Heroscape Theme Songs

I was watching a Ben Folds Five DVD last night when one of their songs got me thinking. What songs would be theme songs in Heroscape?

The first one that came to mind was for all of us who didn't get to go to GenCon: Missing the War by Ben Folds Five. (Big surprise that it's a BFF song, I know.) I also like Night on Bald Mountain by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov for Taelord because he looks similar to the demon the song was used for in Fantasia.

So what songs work as theme songs for Heroscape figures, situations, players, or the game in general?

The only restriction I'd place is that if you're going to put a song for a Heroscaper that you can't list one for yourself since that's covered in another thread.

halo music would fit real well in heroscape. So would Pirates of the Caribbean music as well. They both are awesome soundtracks for adventures and battles.

If you like it, link it into this thread.
There's no rule against putting in songs made by members.

If you have a least favorite figure Ugly Kid Joe's I Hate Everything About You works might fine.

I'm pretty sure I've posted this in one of the other Heroscape music threads, Led Zeppelin's The Battle Of Evermore.

I like this thread! I love putting together mixes to listen to while playing, and I try to make a broad selection of genres just like the game pulls together so many kinds of characters. As for matching songs up to specific units...

'Spybreak!' by Propellerheads for Carr and the Krav Maga Agents (better known as the theme from The Matrix): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-aqy9BYqDM

the loading theme from Battlefield 1942 for Sgt. Alexander and the Airborne Elite: http://ytmndconference.ytmnd.com/

'Quad Machine' by Sonic Mayhem from Quake II suits many of Utgar's units, but perhaps the Zettians and zombies benefit the best from it: http://quake2.ytmnd.com/

'Requiem for a Tower' by Clint Mansell, from the theatrical trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is a good song to listen to, but it's hard to pin it on any one unit... likely the Grut orcs, though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQnE74BDzu0

Also, anything by Hans Zimmer (such as the Pirates of the Caribbean music) is great for games like Heroscape. 'Roll Tide' from the movie Crimson Tide, though I've never seen the movie, is a great song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeoIHxSaEaU

In the Hall of the Mountain King is one of my favorites to use in any situation. It starts nice and slow and builds and builds!

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup!!

I still like my "This is the theme to Heroscape"
