I need help with something, if a bar-fight were to break out what would be the best/most fitting music to be playing in the background?

#2 Posted by Feanor (1440 posts) -

Whatever's on the jukebox when the fight breaks out?

Something with bagpipes.

I don't know, that's just the first thing that came to mind.

This is a song I'm going to use in a screen play bar scene I'm writing. Haha.

#7 Posted by NTM (8229 posts) -

Mmm, probably this.

... Just kidding.

#8 Posted by Grimhild (758 posts) -


What's the vibe you're going for? Is it slapstick, darkly comedic, brutally realistic, hyper-violent? So many possibilities.

Uh huh, trust me.

#12 Posted by Ksaw (358 posts) -

This always sounded like a bar fight song to me for some reason.

#13 Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG (4311 posts) -

How about some video game boss themes?   

#14 Posted by Cynically_Happy (55 posts) -

@Grimhild: I'm not really going for a really dark and grim tone, the violence I'm not really sure about (this is for a random scene I came up with that I may or may not put into a screenplay at some point in the future, so I'm not sure how bloody or brutal I want it to be) but I do want a kind of song that conveys a sense of chaos and franticness as it will be a big fight (20+ patrons involved in the fight)

It goes with everything.

@Cynically_Happy: Carl Douglas - Kung Fu Fighting

EDIT: I changed my mind. This is the perfect bar fight-background song. Hell, it's the perfect anything-background song.

I guess this would be my second choice:

#20 Edited by PhanThomas (94 posts) -

Well, since it also was a bar fight scene, this music fits perfectly I guess :)

Also for the Irish bar fights - or social gatherings as they call them:

@S0ndor: Was just about to post that upon looking at the title lol

#24 Posted by PeezMachine (269 posts) -

Look, I like you guys, but you're all wrong.

#25 Edited by Schmollian (300 posts) -

Or we could turn the bar fight real dark. The Max Payne way

  Seriously, I'd so be in that bar fight.
#28 Posted by Inkerman (1492 posts) -

Bad things happen to me when this song plays.

#29 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3053 posts) -
@wewantsthering If you like Nick Cave barfighting music, may I also recommend the Ballad of Robert Moore and Betty Coltrane?

Anyway, the entire discography of the Dropkick Murphys would be appropriate for all bar fights, although that'd get tiring if you had to fight that whole time.
#30 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4745 posts) -

Yuzo Koshiro has the answer.

#31 Posted by Grimhild (758 posts) -


#32 Posted by fox01313 (5172 posts) -

Lots of options with this one but there's a lot from the Dropkick Murphys that would work for this but just about anything over the top/absurd would be good.

Either that, or this:

It's a toss-up for me, really.

@Inkerman: Nice call man. 
The first thing that popped into my head (and won't leave) is Motorhead's Ace of Spades.

#48 Edited by Ravenlight (8057 posts) -

It may not a proper fight, but the opening bar scene of Prey remains one of my favorite memories in gaming, the rest of the game notwithstanding.

That fight needs to end quick hopefully this will calm everyone down.
