As much as I love Doom's original music I also love plugging in my Ipod and listening to my music as i'm playing. Anyone else do this? I lvoe lsitening to Fall Of Efrafa or Tragedy while playing.

Anything 'Doomy' is pretty good for it.

I think it's acceptable for doom II, to play and listen to the song "Let the Bodies hit the Floor" by Drowning Pool, only because there are an asinine amount of enemies in each level.

Anything by slayer. Or Metallica. Or just any thrash metal for that matter.

The PSX doom soundtrack (trust me it's less nerdy than it sounds).

I do this with almost any game I play with some exceptions. For shooters, I'm a fan of Metal like Priest and Maiden as well as classic thrash like Anthrax and Megadeth. When I am playing retro arcade games, I usually listen to hair bands :D. It's good stuff!!

The new (freely released) remastered Fallout 1-2 soundtracks.

DO IT! ;)

SNSD (Girls Generation) K-pop while killing demons is fun.

The in-game soundtrack.
Nothing beats the classics in this game. Except the original Doom soundtrack.

Yeah, for some reason I don't think Doom II's OST was up to par with the original at all, but still fun stuff.

'Chainsaw Buffet' by Lordi is quite apt!

Doom's soundtrack itself is the best thing you can hear with the game. random thrash metal is good too.

Boyz II Men. The balance of gore & RnB is quite nice.

On jDoom (one of the source ports on PC) I made my own playlist for the game to play my own selection of songs (mostly Static-X, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails) everytime.

I also threw in songs that some level midi's are clearly based off (e.g. Alice In Chains - Them Bones = MAP23, Pantera - This Love - MAP18, MAP27 etc).

Hell yeah, dunno if you know of them but Heathen + Doom = epic!

And yeah overall I loved Doom's OST itself, though I kind of like the updated versions on the PC. And I gotta say Doom II's OST is kind of step down from the original games, quite a bit... but maybe it's just nostalgia.

Godsmack, Disturbed, White/Rob Zombie, Slayer, Pantera, Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Marilyn Manson, and Linkin Park's first album. Now if you could drive a taxi and mow down some demons, I'd suggest some Offspring.

.Good Topic.

well it depends on what games i play
like if i was killing monsters and ripping off heads - gears of war
that would be 'Metallica'

and if were boosting or helping somebody in whatever activity im doin , i kindda get bored out fast - gears of war , red dead redemption , lost planet and etc. that would be 'Taylor Swift'


and if i were for the win and getting too exicted to win a certain achievement or whatever - all games
i listen to 'ke$ha'

Cool topic, but yeah, whenever I'm playing Doom I turn the music volume down and leave the effects(Doom without sound would be a *****, you need to hear the monster's growling to know they know you're there, a door opening, etc) and I put some Sigur Ros on. I found that calm music helps you stay focused and relaxed whenever all the walls around you raise and release wave after wave of demons.
I tried listening to hardcore music like The Bled and Normal Jean but I'd get all trigger happy and run out of ammo or do stupid **** like run out in the open, etc. But those bands work wonders for MW2 and Halo 3.

i usually listen to Metallica while playing anything but Master of Puppets is the perfect 'Doomy' ( as quoted in the OP post :D) even sounds like a doom music sample at the beginning.

The PSX doom soundtrack (trust me it's less nerdy than it sounds).

Yeah you could say Metallica or Disturbed is good for mowing down demons. But wake up and smell the blood you need straight up death metal! Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, At The Gates, Bolt Thrower, etc. A hardcore game needs a hardcore soundtrack :rock

Back on my old PC I would fire up the old tape deck and blast some good ole' black metal.

Venom & Bathory worked wonders for me.

Since I'm a die-hard Doom fan, I can't be bothered to hear anything other than the actual soundtrack, so I would go with a complete remaster and remake of the entire Doom II soundtrack by Dimaension X.

No because there is nothing as epic as the original Doom music, even today I might blast it over my Ipod or play it when playing Dead Island or Deadspace.
