my party doesn't use a lot of music, but one thing i've found to get them really pumped is a good jam during a big fight to really make it memorable.

so do you have any particular song you like to play during a fight?

we go with more protest style folk-rock (think Neil Young, The Nightwatchman, etc) or SoCal Punk (especially Rancid and Bad Religion)
Nearly Lost You by Screaming Trees is another good one!


Oh the great Gaels of Ireland, are the men that God made mad!
For all their wars are happy and all their songs are sad!
- GK Chesterton

Liberty's Edge

VIX Noelopan - !aaaH-aH ,yawA eM ekaT oT gnimoC er'yehT


My table uses various songs with Roll20's jukebox, a particular favorite around the place is End of the Raging Winds for when the party has the advantage.

Scarab Sages

I've never implemented it in a game, but the boss fight songs (mainly "Festival of Servants" and "Death Ballad") from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night would translate fantastically.


Five Finger Death Punch- War is the Answer
Metallica- Seek and Destroy or For Whom the Bell Tolls
AC/DC- Hell's Bells
Rammstein- pretty much anything
The Conan movies scores
LOTR movie scores


James Horner's Last Of the Mohicans soundtrack


Roundtable Rival by Lindsey Stirling


Note I don't speak Icelandic, and I understand it is one of the most difficult languages in the world, so I most likely won't even try. Still here's an Icelandic Viking Battle Song...


Mars, Bringer of War from Holst's "The Planets" Suite.


SoCal punk is awesome. Add some Dead Kennedys, NOFX, and Offspring (Bad Habit!), Pennywise, and Guttermouth to that list. Love Screaming Trees and Mark Lanegan too!

Turisas - Battle Metal
Amon Amarth - Deceiver of the Gods
Warbringer - Combat Shock
if you are going for newer metal music.

Pantera - Cowboys From Hell
Datsuns - MF From Hell
Misfits - Green Hell
if you want to fight hell with me...though if you use the Misfits tune, the fight better be over in less than 2 minutes.

ACDC - If You Want Blood (You Got It) just a good rockin song!

Maiden Dio and Priest all have great songs to get pumped up for a fight.

My Chemical Romance - Desolation Row
Flogging Molly - Whats Left of the Flag
Barry Vorzon - Theme From "The Warriors" (The Warriors Soundtrack Version)

and the song what gets me ready for whatever:
Iron Maiden - Trooper

and when it's all said and done, head back to the tavern where this tune is playing:
Santiano - Es gibt nur Wasser


For me it's either of the following:

Rhapsody of Fire - Dawn of Victory
Rhapsody of Fire - Unholy Warcry

I don't use music at the table, but as far as songs I'd want as battle music:
The Irony of Chaste (Guilty Gear Isuka)
You May Call Me Father (Bayonetta)
The Greatest Jubilee (Bayonetta)
Last Battle - Asellus (Saga Frontier)
The Bitter Road (Des-ROW)

There are more, those are just my top choices.

I'd want:

Murder by Within Temptation
Promised Pain (Xenosaga 3)
Fatal Fight (Xenosaga 2)
End of All Hope by Nightwish

And a few classics like the Ride of the Valkyries, of course!


We once started a fight in a chieftan's hut.

I broke out singing "There's a brawl in da hut! A brawl in pizza hut!"

Beyond that, we don't get to use music. I'd love to use a ton of JRPG musics tho..


Not fight songs, but for free and easy music/ambiance for RPGs, check out Tabletop Audio, 10 minute long tracks that really fit fantasy, horror and sci-fi themes.


Nazareth's "Hair of the Dog"
Manowar's "Black Wind, Fire, and Steel"


Heather Alexander's March on Cambreadth
Five Finger Death Punch's Lift Me Up
And of course my favourite:
Fall Out Boy's Centuries


My favorite original soundtracks from video games to use for pathfinder:

Dark Souls/Dark Souls 2
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
Neverwinter Nights 1 and 2
Fallout series
Ninja Gaiden (xbox)

Currently for Serpent's Skull I'm using both the Turok 2 and Monster Hunter soundtracks and they work great for the campaign setting.

My favorite pump me up song.

:Back in Black AC/DC . Still raises the hairs on the back of my neck. That was the song I used to come out to when I wrestled and it still does it for me to this day.
