    i have several friends over in iraq. they're always in search of new music to work out to, relax to, and get ready to fight to. I had an idea if anyone would like to participate... I'm going to start creating "mix cds" and send them out to them. anyone wants to come up with a playlist of songs you'd think they'd enjoy (could be for a certain mood, just a mix or something to stir memories), i'll get the music, burn it and send it to them with a notice this comes from a friend who supports you on the US Message Board.

    I'm working on my first cd now (my speciality- hip-hop) but i'd love to make some more cds with your input.

    i know a lot of folks on here like sir evil have a serious taste in other areas, so that would be great to get some of that for these folks.

    Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
    Hell's Bells - ACDC
    Iron Man - Black Sabbath (or, even better, IMO, is Busta Rhymes "This Means War", which is him rapping over the Iron Man guitar riffs)
    For Those About to Rock - ACDC
    That's all I can think of for now.

    As a disabled vet who was in Iraq....
    The song that stuck in my head the most was,
    Metallica-Don't tread on me

    I have a huge music collection and so many blank CDs if you want me to help you send some too, I'd be more then willing to help you out. I know how sucky it must be to wait for the new music. So if you got MSN, or what ever pm me and I'd glady help you make countless CDs. I have Hip hop, rap, all kinds of stuff. Also what I don't have I'll get for em'.

    Ok, if you're getting NIN in there, then you need to get a good half of MM's Antichrist Superstar album in there. :)

    Jeff, I don't know if "Killing in the Name Of" would be a good choice or not. The music surely would get the troops pumped, but the overall message is to refuse to fight a battle that you don't believe in, so that may not be the sort of thing a lot of troops will want to be hearing right now. Maybe not, I've never been in any armed forces, so I can't really say how these songs would affect our troops.

    Either way, this is a great idea. Of course, music has gotten so political and just crappy overall that the troops in Iraq really haven't been missing all that much.
