For weeks I've been debating what song to use, then Vinnie Paul died. This is the perfect song for the unfolding drama at Cowboy. On one hand, its Basher's message to the new Lieutenant. At the same time, it could be her theme song. If she liked heavy metal, that is. But then, what heavier metal is there than a tank? And as much as she turns her nose up at the music, she didn't turn it off...

Heavy Metal has been the anthem over there because of how it unnerves the enemy.

Maybe so... though I don’t know what the kids are listening to these days, probably makes Pantera sound mild...

Is there something worse than dubstep?

Because that would be my nomination for the only thing that could knock off heavy metal in the "rek yr earz" category...

You all do realize that Heavy Metal is 50 years old now with Iron Butterfly's 1968 "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida"?
In 'Nam that year, "We Gotta Get Out of This Place!" was number 1. Unfortunately, every Filipino rock band's female lead singer coming through on the USO circuit just had to sing "It Must Be Him". That went over like a lead balloon with guys just back from being shot at out in the boonies. Even George Jessel's dated WW I period jokes were preferable.

I always wondered if we gotta get out of this place resonated with the grunts in Vietnam, or if it was too “on the nose.” Seems like a perfect anthem, but almost too perfect. I guess because they used it in the movie Hamburger Hill to great effect, I wondered if it was a Hollywood thing.

Nope. Hollywood does more often than given credit for use the right historical items.
Over the years on occasions when Vietnam vets at a gathering sing together, this song is one of two most frequently sung. The other with everybody arm in arm in a circle is "Goodnight, Saigon."

I wonder if Eric Burdon knows that. It would probably bring him some peace. He probably knows.
