Borderlands 3 Intro song suggestion

(holy crap these forums are confusing)
Anyway I have a suggestion for the intro song in bord3rlands.Its The Dead South’s Gunslinger’s Glory…

Here are the lyrics…

Creep and crawl until you fall into that old dark room
Where you left your sins and all of your friends
Staring back the old man’s lies as he watched you drown
You get up and you just splash around

Never really knowing why, they won’t understand
As you hang from the tree with that look of despair
Pulling out your guns and blast another round
Oh, one of these days you got your, you got your crown

I want to be the very best
Best there ever is
The quickest draw
The toughest ■■■■■■■■■■■■ in these lands
I want to be the very best
Best there ever is
The quickest draw
The toughest ■■■■■■■■■■■■ in these… lands

Going around every day as I shoot away
Taking 'em on down to their knees to pray
Make my way up to the top, as I knew I would
Being a gunslinger is a glory and goddamn, goddamn it’s good

I want to be the very best
Best there ever is
The quickest draw
The toughest ■■■■■■■■■■■■ in these lands
I want to be the very best
Best there ever is
The quickest draw
The toughest ■■■■■■■■■■■■ in these… lands

Well I got my wish, I was the best
The only problem is
I’m laying on the cold cement
With a bullet… in my head
In my head
In my head
Now I’m dead


I like it. The borderlands song is such an important thing. I have been listening out for a song for ages. Keep up the hunt !

I know this was used in the Call of Duty WWII Live Acttion Trailer, but…

This is my pick.


I don’t think there’s a gamer who hasn’t heard this and it’d make a great Borderlands theme tune.

The singer even does the psycho pose in it lol.


I feel like this song may be a good choice as well.


I can’t see this one being in it, even though it has a good beat like the others. Seems like you hear it on the radio everyday, if they put it in there, a lot of people would not like it.

My fave is the first one, Take It Outside
Brantley Gilbert – Take It Outside

Fall Out Boy – Know What You Did in the Dark

Saliva – Badass

I am surprised no one suggested ring of fire since Prometheus(and it sounds like actual hell) sounds to be the planet for the game

Post lyrics and/or references to songs you think would be good as the intro song to Borderlands 3.

I was at starbucks and heard a song by this Aaron Lee Tasjan and then listened to the album on Apple music. Then I discovered their song, “Ready to Die”, which totally made me think of Borderlands. I quoted some of it. It’s not perfect because the full lyrics refer to Ohio and Cadillacs but maybe that’s ok. But it also kinda fits the musical tone of the other songs they’ve chosen.

Ready to Die

Aaron Lee Tasjan

I’m ready to die for a worthy cause
It’s cause I’m tired of living bad
I’m ready to die for a worthy cause
It’s cause I’m tired of living bad

One of these days I’m gonna lose my mind
Can’t wait to see what that’ll help me find
Been sitting on the couch with the house on fire
Gonna be one hell of a funeral pyre

Enticed by the myriad multiplicity
Entombed by our own disguise
We will dive into vast unknowns
An ember remains to unearth a hope

The undercurrent rises from the fading coals
Blown tethered cross the plain far from sanctuary’s gaze
In search of what could not be spoken
Scripted and gifted and parted
Amended forever’s lashed gnashing with vice
Laid open and undressed to none but my own prying eyes

Oh, master of nothing you slave to diatribe
Oh, master of no one you prey on your device

A cross section of crossroad hoisted high toward the sky
And life filled my nostrils as veins ran so dry
Dead to the world and dead in your eyes
Etchings interred as failure recurred
Desolate worlds fall to these endless nights

Always felt that this song would fit right in with BL.

I actually have a Spotify playlist called “BorderlandsVibe” - Check out “Wicked Ones” by Dorothy, “Trouble in Mind” by Larkin Poe, “Howl” by Beware of Darkness, “Say My Name” from Peking Duk, and “I’m a Wanted Man” from Royal Deluxe.

This is clearly the correct intro song for B3. No questions


I imagine this song fits the intro by showing the many different rises of vault hunters from each fraction fighting from small time encounters up until they to face each other then the real threat emerges, demanding that they become allies.

The enemy of my enemy, is my friend?


Good fit!


We had a lot of luck on Venus
We always had a ball on Mars
Meeting all the groovey people
We’ve rocked the Milky Way so far
We danced around with Borealice
We’re space truckin’ round the the stars
Come on let’s go Space Truckin’

Remember when we did the moonshot
And Pony Trekker led the way
We’d move to the Canaveral moonstop
And everynaut would dance and sway
We got music in our solar system
We’re space truckin’ round the stars
Come on let’s go Space Truckin’

The fireball that we rode was moving
But now we’ve got a new machine
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah the freaks said
Man those cats can really swing
They got music in their solar system
They’ve rocked around the Milky Way
They dance around the Borealice
They’re Space Truckin’ everyday
Come on

That’s my pick despite it being less fitting

It’s not the style of music that they’ve traditionally used for the theme song, and you could really pick any of 50 songs by the guy, but my suggestion is this:
