The Clash song London Calling for the Dirty Bomb main theme.

It fits for me.

    It may fit but money for the rights to use the song is probably better left for development.

    I think DB is more like Massive Attack type, but who knows.


    Literally every movie that has a scene in London plays that song. I'm not exactly sad DB doesn't use it, lol.
    And for a main menu theme, oh jesus. I get sick of games that don't use atmospheric-type music in the background pretty fast, but an actual song? Might be good for a trailer, but listening to london calling on loop while I wait for matchmaking would drive me insane lol.

    Would be cool to have a DB themed playlist though, this would definitely fit that.

    Man if Dirty Bomb looked like TF2, this would be perfect.
    Although, a more "orchestra-ized" version of this would be pretty nice actually. Make it more DB like, but keep the same melody. Maybe a choir singing the vocals.

    Since DB takes place in the future, the type of music will have to sound futuristic

    Not necessarily. I mean, we live in the future compared to the 80s, yet 80s music is still popular. DB doesn't really give off a futuristic vibe as much as it does hypermodern. Not to mention eurobeat and whatnot has a pretty oldschool vibe for most people now. Although the speed definitely fits DB well, a lot better than the current menu theme which is pretty much the soundtrack National Geographic would use if they had a documentary on sleep.

  • The average person who doesn't listen to that type of music will think it's new imo

    In my experience the best music to capture my feelings when having to play DB along side 3 incompetent Vassilis is Japanese Noise Rock. Because this is such a common event SD might as well make something like this the intro music.

    Forget the cobalt Kawaii stick, better listen to some Kawaii rock.
