Doom Eternal's new TV spot unexpectedly features mumble rap music, which does not quite fit the occasion. Luckily, Doom fans have made their own version, packed with Mick Gordon's aggressive industrial metal riffs.
It's not even mumble rap
Whatever it is it has no place in a doom trailer.
don't get me wrong, i agree, the song in the actual trailer doesn't fit at all, the replacement song is so much better for the doom trailer.
The person who decided on the music should be the main villain in the game.
Agreed. Though I'm certainly no fan of rap, I think it does work in certain instances and a DOOM game is definitely not one of them. DOOM has always been metal and it always should be.
Thank you! Look I don't like the song either but it's not fucking mumble rap...
Yea it's actually a decent song, although it doesn't suit DOOM at all. I was preparing for some unnecessary screaming in my ear but the guitar in the replacement was wayy better.
True it isn't but I don't know how they thought it fit the trailer
cant wait to see the article stating "Garbage Rock&Roll replaced with Hip-Hop." Cant you imagine the size of the fire thatll be started?
Does anyone else thing almost all rap is worse than a group of dying cats scratching chalk boards and "gangsta" rappers are nothing but insufferable, tryhard douches?
That's bot mumble rap. Its generic pop rap. Dont see why fans should care, this is a pop trailer to get the normies and dudebros at the gym see it on ESPN and want to buy it. It helps convert normies to fans.
This is DOOM not Bud Light! It should tear your f******g head off and s**t down your neck with metal!
That's the doing of some other dude who was all out of gum.
So? More fans means more get tor enjoy the death metal. Eze them in.
It makes the marketing team look confused. Let’s advertise Halo next with some Ariana Grande.
Depends on what Ariana is singing.
Imagine using the term normies with a straight face.
I just did it. What?!
Bethesda really are plonkers
A little to complimentary for me.
“Plonker” is the greatest British contribution to human society.
Rap should die
No music genre should ever die
Dubstep should die, be put down a pit, have petrol poured on it, set alight, then nuked just to be sure.
Yea, I'd rather have someone screaming in my ear for 5 minutes straight.
Shit rap should die. Good rap is harder to find, but is great. Still doesn't suit a doom trailer, but there you go.
Same thing with metal. You gotta dig through a lot of garbage before you find the really good bands.
Some rap is super entertaining and great to get inebriated to but let's be honest, it is not really music. There aren't even instruments involved and the actual rapping has gotten so much worse with migos etc. just making sounds (skkrt skkrrt). EDM isn't real music either, just rich kids with laptops stringing sounds together. Regardless of opinions rap has no place in a doom trailer though.
Careful that talk is no better than SJW talk. Just because you don't enjoy something doesn't mean it has no right to exist.
Rap can be good but the wast majority is complete shit. Rap does not go well with fighting games or shooters....or any game to be honest.
It worked well for the Def Jam games :P And what about THUG 2 and Parappa :P
QuePasa87 You got me there. Rap works in games that are made with rap in mind.😆
Highly disagree. Rap goes great with fighting games.
White people is mad at rap being in video game trailers again.
Bro, black people and white people have come together to take a dump on that TV spot. lol That song was BEYOND unfitting.
Blaze being a racist again
Way to make it about race. 2K19/20 in a nutshell people
Why do you boile this down to racism?
"White people ARE mad at....." not ïs". If you're going to be a racist, at least your proper English.
that's like mixing blood with water.
Blood has water in it
Look, that music was unfitting as heck, and def not Tommee Profitt's best work, but mumble rap it was not. Not even close. lol
If Bethesda wanted to market Doom with rap music they should have used a Rage Against The Machine Track (.e.g. killing in the name of).
Or Ice-T and Bodycount.
Yup, Ice-T, Bodycount, Cypress Hill hard hip-hop and Rap Metal/Rock.
as it should be
I would like to see someone put together a Doom trailer with the Exodus song "Now Thy Death Day Come". The song is great by itself, but I think it would fit Doom so well.
WTF is mumble rap?
Definition right here. Try not to laugh. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
@Lord LMAO, that's perfect!!
Words in Rap music that you can't understand anything they're saying,the words sound mumbled.
Can someone fill me in is this the same guy that made the Wolfenstein music cus if so those games were LIT because of the soundtrack!!
Yeah, Mick Gordon is one of the musical composers for that soundtrack.
I don't like like mumble rap or metal but I'll take metal over horrible mumble rap when it comes to a Doom trailer...lol.
So this is how the world ends.
Replaced shit with shit. Replace it with this, and then we can have a conversation. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
No one agrees with you. Go away
One did, so take your face for a shite, son.
That wasn't even rap wtf? 😆 That was closer to rock than rap
Both songs are wrong for this trailer. There’s only ONE song that goes with everything and that’s Guile’s theme song!!!
Getting sick of rap being crammed in every single thing. Its getting old, and boring. Even old ladies dancing to that crap in commercials, lame. Way too mainstream, reminds me of what became of MC Hammer. Shouldve died a long time ago.
