Poll: Royalty-Free Song of the Show(s) (254 votes)

Lock Down (Dan Skinner, Adam Skinner, Dave James) 77%
Party Hard (Bob Bradley) 14%
E3 2011 Giant Bomb Music 6%
Other 1%
I hate them all (I am an enemy to royalty-free music and all of mankind!) 2%

Since we're at the tail-end of this year's illustrious E3, and since the chat polls are fleeting, I feel like we should resolve this particular item permanently:

What is your Royalty-Free Song of the Show(s)? (Links as follows)

Lock Down (Dan Skinner, Adam Skinner, Dave James): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2FDPgvm2l0

Party Hard (Bob Bradley): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vlqgok_P6bk

E3 2011 Giant Bomb Music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytkiOvL9DZ4

There are no other possible answers but Lock Down.

Lock Down. Those first 14 seconds alone make it the clear winner.

Anyone know what the music was during the Tuesday's show? It was like this drum and bass hybrid flute thing.

@natetodamax: As in the Pre- and Post- show music from Tuesday? Are you referring to this? (I literally could only find that link as a full playable version of it since I couldn't find it on youtube); it's called Keymantia and it's by this group called 00.db. It actually doesn't look royalty free as it's available for purchase on Amazon MP3 surprisingly.

Both Lock Down and Party Hard are amazing in their stupidity, but the stupidity of Lock Down is quite a bit more creative than Party Hard, so I'll give it to that.

I really like Party Hard. And I have absolutely no clue why that is.

Lockdown is easily the song of E3 2013.

I was gonna party hard, until the sun comes up, but then it became a lockdown, baby.

To truly "get" Lock Down you had to be in the chat during that super long break between segments where it was playing on rotation for what felt like an hour. Everyone was screaming for the song to be changed. After that full immersion session though, there was a HUNGER to hear it again that will never be sated.

People, please... Party Hard is the best song. I won't just sit here and watch you fawn over this Johnny Come Lately!

Lock Down is too smooth

PS: Anyone know when paypal support will be up?

Party Hard isn't an E3 song, Party Hard is just a general waiting-for-the-stream-to-start song.

But Lock Down? That's an E3 song.

I have a love/hate relationship with Lock Down. It now defines Giant Bomb chat waiting. #13 evanbower perfectly captured my exact thoughts on the matter.

And... throw away...



The key...

Lock Down's kinda just annoying.

I've been listening to Party Hard with astonishing regularity since last E3, though.

#20 Edited by stalefishies (352 posts) -

I just want to add that I've just come back from an exam where I had Lock Down stuck in my head the entire time and it was NOT helpful.

Anyone who voted for anything other than Lock Down is obvi trollin'

There was a time where "Party Hard" was our goddamn White Whale.

How times have changed.
