Gearheads of War: The Musical

So as I was booming my way through Fuel Depot and Gridlock, we came back to the pregame lobby and I started singing "Boom boom boom let's go back to my room so we can do it all night." SweetTea promptly replied, "Hey, we should create Gearheads: The Musical, what with that song and Really Doe's acting chops."
Any way, it was one of the light moments of the night. As usual, Really Doe was nasty with the shotgun, taking Lancer bullet after Lancer bullet and refusing to acknowledge they were even there. Although I did actually win one one-on-one shotty battle with Really Doe for maybe the first time in the history of FFF. Usually if Really gets close to you, your head is going to pop off or you're going to blow apart. That's just one of the laws of FFF.
It was a ton of fun as usual and we played until the other side of midnight when my wife got home from seeing Gwen Stefani in concert. One of the big highlights of the evening was the final brother versus brother, Wangler vs. Wangler battle (SweetTea vs. Wangler1316) to decide the final victor on Mausoleum. The battle was epic, prompting Zoso to quip, "This is downright Shakespearean and if SweetTea had any dignity, he'd just off himself right now rather than kill his brother." A moment later, younger brother prevailed for the final kill of the night and sending the Zoso/Papi/Robbins/Younger Wangler to bed with the satisfaction of victory. Although Zoso claimed he was going to go get a chocolate shake. I think that was an homage to our brothers in arms partnership as I quickly realized it was my obligation to get a peanut butter shake today. Heh.
Finally, since this post has a music theme, I was wondering what the perfect Gears of War soundtrack might be. My daughter heard the song "Bodies" today by Drowning Pool and loved it. Obviously that would be a good candidate. I was also thinking that Shamrocks and Shenanigans (Butch Vig Mix) by House of Pain would be another good choice since it's got the "Boom-Sha-lak-lak-Boom" chorus and it's got "shenanigans" in the title. I personally love the "I bring doom because I've got the boom" line. Any other songs? The Mad World song would need to be on there as well as Megadeth's Gears of War. And a good amped up song that I also like is Sepultura's Ratamahatta.
