The Music of Awesome Stuff That is Happening

Postby Bootkiller on Sat Oct 11, 2014 9:37 pm

The basic idea is to post music that you like that plays generally when someone's doing a cool thing.

Doesn't have to be anime, doesn't even have to be music written specifically for awesome things. It could just be a song you feel would play in your head when you're doing something cool.

Here are some of my examples:

I'll Face Myself
from Persona 4


It would be good of me to point out that this song is remixed like eight times throughout the game, and that I just picked one of the versions with a faster beat. I honestly like all of the versions.


Libera Me From Hell
from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann


Of course, a well known show built upon the concept of "Awesome People doing Awesome Things" would have a song that fits this theme. There's just something about the Engrish rapping that pumps me up.


I'll Libera Myself From Hell
a mashup of I'll Face Myself and Libera Me From Hell by BotanicSage


Okay, this is not really fair. But fuck it, I REALLY like this mashup.


Before My Body Dries
from Kill la Kill


Of course I'd throw in a KLK track.


Right Hand From Behind
from Sekien no Inganock


Now here's one I doubt anyone's heard before. Sekien no Inganock is a beautiful Visual Novel about a world where everyone has mutated to varying degrees, some of which to the point of basically being monsters. We follow Gi, a back-alley doctor trying to make a living in the slums. This music is a fantastic orchestral piece that really gets me excited for the action scenes that take place. The fucking violin solo gets me every time I hear it.


The Decadent Dandy (King Knight Battle)
from Shovel Knight


It's really hard just picking one track from Shovel Knight, as the whole OST is fantastic. Second place goes to Strike the Earth! (Plains of Passage), but I just really like the boss battle music, which always remixes the stage music of that boss generally with a faster tempo.

^^ That song was the best thing in the game.

I could basically say the entirety of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance's soundtrack is awesome, but I'll just post Rules of Nature:



As a bonus, I recently came across a musician on youtube who has taken all of the main boss themes from MGR:R and redone them using only kazoos and an acoustic guitar.

It's fantastic.
