Fans replace Doom Eternal's mumble rap trailer music with Mick Gordon's metal

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.

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.

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...

CannOfPoo40d ago

There should be no such thing as mumble rap, bunch of douches, sounding like douches.....

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.

Muzikguy40d ago

True it isn't but I don't know how they thought it fit the trailer

UnSelf40d ago

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?

CaptainObvious87838d ago

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.

MrDead41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

This is DOOM not Bud Light!

It should tear your f******g head off and s**t down your neck with metal!

MWH40d ago

That's the doing of some other dude who was all out of gum.

annoyedgamer39d ago

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.

Lennoxb6340d ago

Depends on what Ariana is singing.

lellkay40d ago

Bethesda really are plonkers

Shuckylad40d ago

A little to complimentary for me.

Smokehouse40d ago

“Plonker” is the greatest British contribution to human society.

No music genre should ever die

Dom_Estos40d ago

Dubstep should die, be put down a pit, have petrol poured on it, set alight, then nuked just to be sure.

Silly gameAr40d ago

Yea, I'd rather have someone screaming in my ear for 5 minutes straight.

Immorals40d ago

Shit rap should die. Good rap is harder to find, but is great. Still doesn't suit a doom trailer, but there you go.

Parasyte40d ago

Same thing with metal. You gotta dig through a lot of garbage before you find the really good bands.

TheProfessional40d ago (Edited 40d ago )

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.

Casepb40d ago

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.

AnubisG40d ago

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.

QuePasa8740d ago

It worked well for the Def Jam games :P

And what about THUG 2 and Parappa :P

AnubisG40d ago


You got me there. Rap works in games that are made with rap in mind.😆

chiefJohn11739d ago

Highly disagree. Rap goes great with fighting games.

White people is mad at rap being in video game trailers again.

ShadowWolf71240d ago

Bro, black people and white people have come together to take a dump on that TV spot. lol

That song was BEYOND unfitting.

UnholyLight40d ago

Way to make it about race. 2K19/20 in a nutshell people

AnubisG40d ago (Edited 40d ago )

Why do you boile this down to racism?

CaptainObvious87838d ago

"White people ARE mad at....." not ïs".

If you're going to be a racist, at least your proper English.
