Was thinking that Like all military outfits, the Xenonauts would have some kind of song they'd sing. I was wondering what you guys think it would be. I had an idea in my head of doing a modified "Blood on the Risers" lyrics, changing it from being about a paradrop to a terror mission of course. Anyone have any thoughts on the subject?

Bodies by Drowning Pool.
However if there are Chrysallids about then I go for The Thing I Hate by Stabbing Westward.

Rework the lyrics of The Trooper to be about a terror mission!

I googled russian song and it gave me this :P

Still, these guys are an internationnal bunch, wearing part german uniform, drinking beers from around the world, singing an Hollywood song in a thick Russian accent.

Perfect!

Cadences are an interesting piece of lore. The Xenonauts will have had 20 years to put one together.

What would a world coming from the Cold War have in? What influences would it have?

Hmmm no this is more cold war type song how about

"sung to the tune of when Johny comes marching home"
yes issue me an m16 hura~ hura~, yes issue me and m16 hura! hura!
yes issue me a m16, and I will keep it nice and clean, and well all be dead by the summer of 69

Yes issue me a bayonet hura~ hura!, yes issue me a bayonet hura! hura!
yes issue me a bayonet, with the enemies blood I will keep it wet, and well all be dead by the summer of 69

yes issue me a claymore mine hura~ hura~ yes issue me a claymore mine hura! hura!
yes issue me a claymore mine, Ill blow up people all the time, and well all be dead by the summer of 69

(the cadence goes on but you get the idea)


how about you all from Europe, Africa, Asia and other parts of the world.... what fun military songs do you all have?
