Should Legendary Gear Sing When Activated?

The answer is yes.
Yes it should.

This came out of a discussion earlier about the “Talon of the Hawk” legendary.
If I activate the thing… I want a female chorus to sing “TA-LON OF THE HAWK!” You know… like “Solid as a Rock” but with “Talon of the Hawk” instead? Yeah. You get it.

So this would play when you first activate the gear, then whenever you kill an enemy Battleborn.
To avoid “CLUSTER-F**K OF NOISE!” It would only do it for your first activated or your first slot legendary.
But what are your thoughts? Should your favorite Legendary gear have it’s own theme that plays on activation and whenever you kill an enemy Battleborn? Also, what would it sound like?

TA-LON OF THE HAWK!!!

Aw… I’m gonna be singin’ that all day…

This makes me think of the talking guns in Borderlands 2. That got me thinking of a character in Battleborn with a talking smartgun that argues with it’s user like Shayne and Aurox argue with one another.

Or maybe a massive sword that talks, but the only way it can communicate is through song?

OH HELL…
Imagine Galilea carrying around a sword with a cheery disposition…

EDIT: The legendary will be called “The Cheery Disposition.” It grants attack speed and life steal for melee characters. Special will be granting movement speed increase after sprinting for 5 seconds, at which point it will start singing to you about how wonderful life is. If you’re running away, it sings about how life is too precious. I’m thinking it sounds like Sir Robin’s minstrels.

A sword that sings as it swings? I’m sold!

Louis Armstrong already sang that!

From Benedict
to his beloved
UPR-SM23 Rocket Launcher

And for love’s sake, each mistake
Ah, you forgave
And soon both of us learned to trust
Not fly away, it was no time to play
We blew it up and blew it up and blew it up

And it’s the Talon
Talon of the Hawk
That’s what this love is
That’s what we’ve got, oh, mmm

Talon (Oh)
Talon of the Hawk
And nothing’s changed it (Ooh)
The thrill is still hot, hot, hot
Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot

Oh, oh, oh, ah

You didn’t turn away
When the sky went gray
Somehow we managed
We had to stick together (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

You didn’t bat an eye
When I made you cry
We knew down the line
We would make it better (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

And for love’s sake, each mistake
Ah, you forgave
And soon both of us learned to trust
Not fly away, it was no time to play
We blew it up and blew it up and blew it up

Now it’s the talon
Talon of the hawk (Ooh)
That’s what this love is (Oh, oh)
That’s what we’ve got (Oh, oh) (Yes, it is)

Talon
Talon of the hawk
And nothing’s changed it (Oh)
The thrill is still hot, hot, hot
Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot

Oh, oh, oh, ah

Gone with the wind
Another friend
Got in between
Tried to separate us (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Oh, knock-knock on wood
You understood Love was so new
We did what we had to (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

And with that feeling
We were willing to take a chance
So against all odds, we made a start
We got serious, this wouldn’t turn to dust (Ooh)
We blew it up and blew it up and blew it up

Now it’s the talon
Talon of the hawk (Ooh)
That’s what this love is (Oh, oh)
That’s what we’ve got (Oh, oh)

Talon (Yes, it is)
Talon of the hawk (Ah)
And nothing’s changed it (Ooh)
The thrill is still hot, hot, hot
Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot

That’ll be the theme for ISIC’s Legendary. “What a Wonderful World.” Then ISIC will shout in his usual cheery tone, “Irony!”
