What did you think of that Skrillex and Damian Marley dubstep song?

I actually enjoy me some doofy Skrillex nonsense every now and then, but this track had such a reggae sound to it, which I don't care for, so it didn't do anything for me.

I am too much of a dubstep elitist for this. :(

#4 Edited by Redbullet685 (6065 posts) -

I voted "Yes". It fit the moment great. Total ridiculousness.

It fits the moronic vibe that this game has. Everything about this game is douchebaggy/moronic. Except the gameplay, which is excellent.

not fond of it at all.

I kind of like some of Skrillex's music.

I don't know about you guys but I hated that song but love dubstep. Ok I don't love all dubstep but I have a fondness for bass heavy British dubstep like Skream, Benga, or Coki. I know why they chose that song because of Damian Marley's connection with weed but they could have chose a more crazy sounding song like Coki's "Revolution." That song is crazy, I mean real crazy. Take a listen...

See!!! fucking crazy that it fits imo the already crazy game. I think that the devs at Ubisoft missed a great oppertunity to show the world some great and crazy music.

whoops should not cook and type at the same time to damn slow.

ironically, dubstep has roots in reggae (see what i did there?). it's north american producers like skrillex who've eschewed the original sound in favor of something more punchy and club-oriented.

When it started I was like "Oh this is that song everyone's so up in arms about OH WAIT IM HAVING TOO MUCH FUN SETTING DOGS AND PEOPLE ON FIRE FUCK THAT SONG" kinda.

Full of sounds Skrillex has used constantly, annoying commercial dubstep. I'm not trying to be some Hipster-Barista here, but man. Dubstep now.

Is the song actually good? Hell no. But it fits that part perfectly and I thought its use was really funny. I'm not entirely sure if it was intended to be comedic or not, but nevertheless, it was.

Never heard Skrillex before--I honestly thought it was some death metal band--but I didn't mind it. I was having way too much fun chucking Molotovs and grenades everywhere while lighting shit on fire.

That was one of my favorite moments in games this year. It fit so unbelievably well.

Once you've heard one dubstep song, you've heard them all.

@MetalGearSunny:

That's a pretty narrow view.

This is why I hate what Skrillex (technically his fans, but whatevs) has done to the dubstep name. This is so entirely untrue it's ridiculous. :( SADFACE I TELL YE.

You guys are probably right, but nothing would change how stupid I think dubstep is.

I totally agree with you @AlexW00d:.

Damian Marley is one of my very favorite artists. You know what he doesn't need? DUBSTEP. Gross.

#21 Posted by Baillie (4274 posts) -

Dubstep sucks.

#22 Posted by Dogma (985 posts) -

I have nothing against dubstep or wubwub music or whatever you want to call it BUT I don't like this song.

#23 Posted by RIDEBIRD (1233 posts) -

Song is shit, but fit the ridiculousness perfectly.

#24 Posted by triviaman09 (803 posts) -

I do not like dubstep.

#25 Posted by Counterclockwork87 (733 posts) -

I don't entirely hate a music genre just because its cool to...so I actually enjoyed this song.

#26 Posted by George_Hukas (1317 posts) -

I would hardly say it "fit well". If by "fit well" you mean shitty music started up while I'm trying to play like a popup ad.

That moment put words like desparate and pathethic into my head.

Similar to my reaction to that "amazing" character Voss. Oh, he's so cool.

I heard it first outside of the game and it was as bad as the rest of Skrillex's stuff.

Then I looked for and found a clip of the game section and it totally works in that way. Just like Kanye West's "Power."

I like it more for Marley, than for Skrillex.

#29 Posted by believer258 (12075 posts) -

It was a great moment in the game, so I picked yes, but I can't say that I enjoyed the music. It fit the moment.

I saw Damian Marley live once and my buddy's girlfriend finangled us back stage.  I got high with him.  Hes pretty fucking cool.

I don't like Dubstep, but something about Skrillex works for me. It was his music videos that first drew me in and then the songs ended up getting stuck in my head. He's very good at putting together a comprehensible theme to his songs admist the chaos of wubs, meanwhile most other dubstep sounds like nonesense noises for the simple sake of it.

At least, this is my opinion.

Edit: I also don't care for Reggae, but again, something about this song just works for me.

@RIDEBIRD

I wouldn't call it shit, but it's definitely not something I'd listen to outside of this game. It fit the missions dumb insanity really well, and that's all it needed to do. Wasn't nearly as good at the Saints Row The Third "Power" moment. But nothing beats that.

Really funny in the moment but outside of that context, pretty horrible.
