A Moment To Remember The Song That Sold Borderlands

Kotaku- As we sit here waiting for the launch of Borderlands 2, it's easy to forget that a lot of people thought that the first game was going to be a huge flop. It was a new idea amid a flood of sequels, and a totally untested quantity—did we really need another first-person shooter? Why would anyone buy it? Analyst Michael Pachter famously said that the game was being "sent to die" amid other big fall releases like Modern Warfare 2. It made sense at the time!

The story is too old to be commented.

I wonder why they never put another Cage the Elephant song in the sequel

By the way Borderlands had another song by DJ Champion called No Heaven which was also pretty catchy

I've heard some of their other stuff and it doesn't fit Borderlands like this does. I think this song was a one time deal. I'm sure they'll get another awesome intro song :D Can't wait!

Well it better not be crappy dub step which dosent fit the game at all....

You know what would of been really good for the game "How'd you like me now" by The Heavy

In One Ear by Cage would fit fine, not as perfectly as No Rest for the Wicked, but it'd be close

Dude, you haven't listened to Cage the Elephant much. Check this shit out, would go perfect with Borderlands. "People talking shit, they can kiss the back of my hand."

Video is very similar to boulevard of broken dreams

I really don't see how it's similar.

Still, it was a sweet song.

I love to see publishers and developers rewarded for taking on the risk of launching a new IP.
