EVO 2003 Intro Music thread!


EVO 2003 is going to have intro music for the final 8 (for each game). So, I need to compile about 100 different songs perfect for intros. Basically… think like boxing intros or WWF/E style intros.

Here are the specifications:

5-15 second “buildup”. This is the area of the song where the introduction for each player will be spoken.

High energy hit/break/hook whatever (directly following the 5-15 second “buildup”). This is what plays right after the players name is spoken… this is where they come out all hyped up etc.

If the jam has lyrics, thats fine… however, some jams might work even better as instrumentals. If you have an instrumental of the song in question, feel free to send it to me on IRC, or at least make note that its available online.

Descriptive lyrics might also prove to be a plus. For example, Trapt - Headstrong has a guy yelling “ILL TAKE ON ANYONE”, and Linkin Park - One Step Closer has a guy yelling “SHUT UP WHEN IM TALKING TO YOU” (just examples, calm down!). Both of those lyrics follow a very cool “buildup”.

Keep in mind that overtly sexual and offensive songs won’t be used. A swear or two isn’t gonna kill anyone, but if you are gonna be suggesting 2-Live Crew… realize that it’s probably not going to get played.

If you have a suggestion, and you are on IRC, drop me a line (on EFNet). It would be great if you actually had the song in question seeing as I’m going to have to be doing a ton of searching/screening myself. If you can send it there… great.

By the way, the songs country of original or language doesn’t matter as long as it follows the guidelines of a) good buildup, b) good hit/break, c) not overtly sexual or offensive (yes, people that speak those languages will probably be present).

Here are some examples to get you all in the right frame of mind. However, this is NOT a music discussion thread. Any threads talking about “that band sucks” or whatever will be deleted. OK… examples:

Trapt - Headstrong
Linkin Park - One Step Closer (near middle/end of song)
Quarashi - Stick 'Em Up (high energy, not much buildup tho)
Machine Head - From This Day
Ozzy Osbourne - Gets me through
Limp Bizkit - Rollin (WWF Undertaker version)
Evanescence - Imaginary
DMX - What’s My Name
Cypress Hill - Rap/Rock Superstar (instrumental)
Nas - Made You Look (instrumental)

Oh yeah, if you have a song that has a great intro, or a great hook/break or whatever, but not both combined… feel free to mention it (and explain what it’s missing). I may do some custom editing and make some special intro songs.

OK… get posting!



Dr. Dre’s

Whats the Difference between me and you. (too lazy to remember actual title)


First and last time I’ll probably ever say this sentence:

P.O.D.'s “Boom” might be a good song.


I like

Pharoah Monch - Simon Says (Instrumental)
Powerman 5000 - Bombshell
The Crystal Method - Name of the Game

And random Andrew W.K. songs!

And I can’t believe I forgot this: 50 Cent - Wanksta!


Lose your Self - eminem…=cX
Jurgen Vries - The Theme
They Might Be Giants - Boss Of Me (Malcom In The Middle Theme Song)
B**** Please part 2 (might be too much)


Isn’t that Ricky Person gay ?

Use Macho man , that’d be hilarious.

Other good themes for entrances…

Bret Harts entrance theme . HBK’s theme , All about the benjamins by P. Diddy would make a good entrance.


Good suggestions so far. I’m dloading as fast as I can. Remember, if you have IRC… and the file… come send it!



Bone Crusher w/ killa mike, T.I.P. - Never Scared


Chicago Bulls - Intro

The song of a champion…


M-flo : How You Like Me Now?

L’arc En Ciel : Shout at the devil
(good song for the underdog of two rivals.) bad ass opening.

Malice Mizer: Beast of Blood
(how can you go wrong with lyrics like this)
No fear, no sadness
Lofty life is tasting loneliness and eternity
And near by the target with no more life
Red drops on my greedy lips
Falls down on the freezing ground
Get down limitless night

Animetal ver of : Dunbine Tobu

Only One No. 1-Masami Okui (Digi Charat Op)
(XD it makes sense if you can get past the cuteness)
I want to shine brighter than anything in the world
My goal is the No.1 STAR
Not my rival
Everybody can shine in the world because everyone is there
Something will start your fire
Stimulate you, and those daily routines will change everything
Shine, No.1 STAR


nelly-# 1
eye of the tiger


Gridlok - Uncaged Aggression

No lyrics. Just plain nasty drum and bass.


Sunna - Power Struggle
Snake River Conspiracy - Vulcan
Marilyn Manson - The Beautiful People
Evanescence - Everybody’s Fool, Tourniquet, Lies



put in some cool DBZ music. lol seriously. At least if i made it that far by some chance that would be one of my choices.

hikari no will power(has 16 seconds of build up almost right on!)

hrmmm maybe some cool kof music…

dear fallen angel

ethier of them arranged are good.

maybe some cool final fantasy music… cant think of any song off the head the builds for a bit though. Or i can but it builds for like at least a min…

hrmm… maybe burly brawl from the matrix…


“Fortunate Son” by Creedence Clearwater Revival has an ass-kicking intro and would no doubt work perfect for some fortunate player.



Some songs that I think would be rather useful are:

Metallica - Ride the Lightning, St. Anger(ugh), Frantic (ugh), Enter Sandman, Creeping Death(personal fav)

Tool - Hooker with a Penis, Opiate

Lost Prophets - Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja

Nine Inch Nails - Wish

Pantera - 5 Minutes Alone, Hearsy, Shedding Skin

Audioslave - Chochise, Show me how to Live

Rage Against the Machine - Know your Enemy, Renegades of Funk

AC/DC - Highway to Hell

Misfits - NY Rangers (I just like it :slight_smile: )

Eminem - Business

A Perfect CIrcle - Judith

These are just some of my personal favourites. I am a little biased towards metal and alternative but I tried my best. Hope it helped. Goodluck and can’t wait for the DVD.


any of Celine Dion songs


M.C. Hammer- Cant touch this, for J-Wong!:lol:


LL COOL J - “Mama Said Knock You Out”


“The Touch” and/or “Dare to Believe” - Stan Bush
