Every great marksman needs his soundtrack. Without the Mission Impossible
theme, Tom Cruise is just a short bloke blowing up buildings and doing really lame indoor bungee jumps. Without Monty Norman’s famous Bond theme, 007 would be just another suave tosser wearing a suit and ordering fancy cocktails. Heck, without that instantly recognisable ‘durrrrr-dum, durrrrr-dum’, Jaws is just a lump of budget animatronics about as scary as Bagpuss.
The same is true of any great Call of Duty
soldier. You can’t expect to maintain a monster killstreak if all you can hear in the background is your sister singing along to Taylor Swift and the neighbours shagging. When it comes to being the best you can be at COD
, the right tunes are as important as sufficient ammo and not accidentally hammering jump instead of shoot when startled by an onrushing enemy.
Let these musical mammoths provide the soundtrack to your greatest ever COD
session. If you disagree with them, or if you think we’ve missed a big one, Tweet your selection using the hashtag #CODbeats and we'll put together a list of the best suggestions.
