Okay, third round is over.  You can HCM me your grades or post them here, whichever you wish.

Jiriki's mixtape - I like the way you included some non-rock songs in there.  Thematically everything fit together perfectly. However, many of the songs were not very memorable.  I found more than once that I was listening to some appropriately sinister instrumental music and then the electric guitar and vocalist would come in and the song would be ruined. Grade: 7
The Apocalyptica song was a great ender

Mytical - I found your mixtape had the opposite problem.  There were good songs on there but musically it didn't gel.  I think the universe is more likely to expire than for me to be in a mood where I want to listen to REM, Billy Joel, and Metallica  You had some great choices in there though like Johnny Cash and Blaze of Glory.
Grade: 8



For the next round the theme is going to be "Time to Kick Ass"

With my varied taste in music, you will find that a common problem with my Mix tapes .

Hmm dang I don't want to reuse songs (but some would fit)

Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
You gotta fight, for your right, to Party! - Beastie Boys
Welcome to the Jungle - Guns 'n Roses
I need a hero - Bonnie Tyler
Were not going to take it - Twisted Sister
Mama said Knock you out - L.L. Cool J.
I stand Alone - Godsmack
MORTAL KOMBAT((No clue who does the song sorry))

BAD - Michael Jackson

Another one bites the dust - Queen

@fog: I'm surprised I got so high Still I'd like to know which songs you found worst (I suppose "Das ende krönt ds werk" is definitely among them? Most people have a problem with the singers voice. I don't like it too much anymore and in some aspects, the instrumental version is better, but I chose the song for it's lyrics mainly, so I decided for this version.)

For the next round...


It's allways Time to kick ass

Yet I'm not sure how to read this theme...I decided for songs who are kinda "starting a fight" theme and most would probably find at a fitting point in a movie.

AC/DC ~ TNT
Perfectly fitting imo

Bloc Part ~ Ares
Ares, as Greek god of War, has probably kicked quite MANY asses! "We dance to the sound of sirens!"

Bloodhound Gang ~ I hope you die
"You must die - I alone am best!"

Creating this playlist makes me happy

Chumbawumba ~ Tubthumping
typical fight song^^

The Clash ~ I fought the law
found no non-live versions on youtube. A great song that sounds pretty "kick ass" imo.

WIll include a song by the German band "Die Ärzte" probably, still undecided though, will probably be Schunder-Song, but maybe also "Super Drei" (linked to the kick ass theme as a "We're so great we can kick anyones' asses" song), maybe it also could be "opfer".

Maybe "Bombe" form "Die Prinzen" but not sure.

Again, a sogn from Die toten hosen should be in. "Auswärtsspiel", "Friss oder Stirb", "Chaos Bros.", "Du lebst nur einmal", "Viva la Revolution", "Pushed Again", "Carnival in Rio", maybe sth from the "Zurück zum glück" album ... they have many songs which imo would fit this theme.


...indeed there are if i get the theme right SO many songs to indlude...
I will probably gathe rsome more here and then decide which to take later^^

I'd love to judge others mix tapes, but hard to do with the limited time I have with a computer that has sound.  

Still only the 3 of us still competing????  The host (FoG) might have to throw some HCM's around

Yet I'm not sure how to read this theme...I decided for songs who are kinda "starting a fight" theme and most would probably find at a fitting point in a movie.

Limp Bizkit ~ Hot Dog
"Just know that nothing you'll Do will bring you closer to me!"

Die Ärzte ~ Super Drei
"So I ... I got three guys out there." "Aha?" "They are just about...to kick your ass!"

AC/DC ~ TNT
Perfectly fitting imo

Bloodhound Gang ~ I hope you die
"You must die - I alone am best!"

Die Toten Hosen ~ Pushed Again
Great Resistance Song!!!

THough a bit outstanding here...I think this song kicks as SO much that I want it in:
Welle:Erdball ~ Nyntändo-Schock
"Nintendo-Shock: KILL UNCLE MARIO!"
The guy just sings 'bout playing console in a very sarcastic way *grin* I like the way they're always criticizing technological advance in their songs.

And finally, for variety
Tenacious D ~ Classico
If you should not know: The "real" song begins at about 0:50

...I know, that probably the lineup may be considered too much rock, but with this theme, for me there's not really another way^^ Rock just DOES kick ass

You remind me that by focusing more on the punk side of kicking ass, I mostly forgot about the metal one...however usually the playlist should have 10 songs

Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
  excellent start , I'm lacing my boxing gloves as I write this with my tongue
You gotta fight, for your right, to Party! - Beastie Boys
  hmmm, nope
Welcome to the Jungle - Guns 'n Roses
  nice  knekneknekneeeees
I need a hero - Bonnie Tyler
 good choice though the instrumentation sucks away some of the aggressive energy
Were not going to take it - Twisted Sister
 too corny to pump you up
Mama said Knock you out - L.L. Cool J.
 perfect!
I stand Alone - Godsmack
 
MORTAL KOMBAT -
 hehehe perfect, makes me want to take on somebody twice my size
BAD - Michael Jackson
 hmmm, this one's kinda lame
Another one bites the dust - Queen
 makes a nice ending but no aggressive energy

Lotsa energy though some wierd ones detract from the overall vibe of needing to kick some ass.



Jiriki's set:

Limp Bizkit -
 kinda annoying
Die Ärzte ~ Super Drei
 hehe fun, perfect for the theme
AC/DC ~ TNT Perfectly fitting imo
 yeah, alot of ACDC songs could fit on this mix
Bloodhound Gang ~ I hope you die
 hmmm, not so energetic
Bloc Part ~ Ares
 lyrics fit but energy sags
Chumbawumba ~ Tubthumping
 an interesting twist on the theme but it works, lotsa energy
The Clash ~ I fought the law
  it's wierd though, the driving guitar and drums don't fit the vocals
Die Toten Hosen ~ Pushed Again
 I want to smash something!
Welle:Erdball ~ Nyntändo-Schock
 heheh cool
Tenacious D ~ Classico
 meh silly


Bloodlover's set:

Manowar - The Dawn of Battle
 haha great start!
Bathory - Nordland
 I want to create wide swathes of destruction wherever I go!
Metallica-Seek and Destroy
 continues nicely...
Summoning - The Rotting Horse On The Deadly Ground
  sorry screamo always makes me laugh
Blind Guardian - By the Gates of Moria
 hmmm, this one kinda lacks energy for me...
Iron Maiden - The Trooper
 the energy's back
Amon Amarth - The Pursuit of Vikings
 hmmm, song's not so great...
Therion - Asgård
 lol, sorry this one doesn't work for me
Manowar- Thor
 fits well, love the screams
Wagner - The ride of the Valkyries
 

great mix, though I'd subtract some songs



Okay, so if I needed to kick some ass and I wanted a soundtrack to do it to I think I'd narrowly pick Bloodlover's over Mytical's with Jiriki's as my backup.

Here's my list:

Aretha Franklin - Chain of Fools

Janis Joplin - Summertime

Blondie - Heart of Glass
not exactly girl power but it's a nice song.

Pretenders - Night in my veins

Breeders - Invisible Man

Cocteau Twins - Iceblink Luck

Ladytron - Soft Power

Rilo Kiley - Its a Hit

Jealous Girlfriends - Something in the Water
this is the best version I could find

Pretenders - Im a Mother
this is the only recording I could find
heheh, kinda corny but a fitting capper for the set.

I'm a mother
Treat me like a mother
You wanna suck on my breast
It's no surprise you do
I'm the source and the force
You owe your life to, brother
I'm a mother
And I take like a mother
I understand blood
And I understand pain
There can be no life without it
Never doubt it
I'm a mother

Amy Lee (Evanescense) - Call me when your sober would be my 11th pick.



Edit : WOOOT I got Kooky to post, that has to be worth something in and of itself!!!

FoG.  Though I don't know about the whole list, 4 of your groups songs would get a 10 from me straight off the bat as I recognize them and they are awesome.

Kooky seven of your 10 songs I know/have heard before.  Based solely on just those I would give the mix a 8.5.  Though I know Joan, she sort of detracts from it for me.  Not a fan myself.

Just wish I could give a full score, but for at least until next wednesday not gonna be able to
