...and pretty much any other Rage Against The Machine song.


I'll add..
Iron Maiden "Die with your boots on"(...if your gonna die)
Pink Floyd various song from "The Wall"
AND
(caution not for the meek...)
Lamb of God

"Now You've Got Something To Die For"

Now you've got something to die for.
Infidel, Imperial
Lust for blood, a blind crusade
Apocalyptic, we count the days.
Bombs to set the people free, blood to feed the dollar tree
Flags for coffins on the screen, oil for the machine
Army of the liberation, gunpoint indoctrination
The fires of sedition
Fulfill the prophecy.
Now you've got something to die for.
Send the children to the fire, sons and daughters stack the pyre
Stoke the flame of the empire, live to lie another day
Face of hypocrisy, raping democracy
Apocalyptic, we count the days.
We'll never get out of this hole until we've dug our own grave
And drug the rest down with us, the burning home of the brave
Burn.
Now you've got something to die for.

I see your SOAD and raise you a B.Y.O.B.

That song came out while I was in Iraq. They used to play it on the base speakers all the time. I couldn't believe such an anti-war song (especially about the very war the military was fighting) would make it onto military radio.






Can't believe this one wasn't posted yet.

This Boy by Brendan Perry



Minstrel Boy by Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros.
This is a version of an old Irish song that has been around since the 1700/1800s..



Dogs of War by Pink Floyd



Us and Them by Pink Floyd





To me this is the greatest song about war ever written or recorded....

When The Tigers Broke Free by Pink Floyd

The best one is The Star Spangled Banner.
And the rockets red glare,
The bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night
That our flag was still there.

I like that too.
Then we have the Marines Hymn (from the halls of Montezuma)
Those casons go rolling along for the Army
Anchors Aweigh for the Navy and
The Air Force Song (off we go into the wild blue yonder)

And of course the Andrews sisters singing the boogie woogie bugle boy of company b

PS Least I date myself these are songs from my parents era. I was born a decade after the war.

I love this song. Now I'm thinking of asking a karaoke friend to sing a duet with me.

Duet this:



One-step here; one step there ...

If one more time, I could slowly run my hand along her perfect breasts.
Mmm, yeah.

All my brothers will understand.

Probably not what you had in mind, but I like this one, because it's a different perspective on the whole war thing.
