So here's a question to the Lore people at Gearbox

Which Genre of music would the Battleborn like? We started talking about this on the Battleborn Discord after I started talking about how i liked music from the 40’s and 50’s compared to stuff from now.

I can imagine Marquis listening to German classical (Wagner, etc) as he ever so gracefully ends the life of filthy liberal arts majors.

Some opinions here too:

Thorn & Boldur - Gaelic folk music, perhaps?

Benedict - country rock, classic rock, cheesy hair metal

Orendi - chaotic math jazz-metal, Mr Bungle, Aphex Twin, Fantomas, John Zorn, the crazier the better

I like to think Beatrix listens to musicians like Aurelio Voltaire. I can see her taste in music really being all over the place, especially if it annoys other people.

Here some combos I could imagine:

Orendi - The Prodigy (90´s aka Spitfire, Voodoo People, maybe Fighter Beat & Big Gundown too)

Rath - Susumu Hirasawa (Kaji wo Tore, Forces, Sign, Indra, Hashi Daiku)

Alani - Helician Classics (to impress Gal of course)

Galilea - Disturbed

Beatrix - L´Arc en Ciel, Mana, Dir En Grey, ect.

Toby - ACDC, Pantera, Twister

Miko - Spongle , System7, Odd

Kelvin - Operas, mainly Verdi & Puccini

ISIC - Agonize, Roter Sand, Combichrist, Feindflug, EBM/Industrial

Boldur - annoying bavarian folk music. Loud.


I feel like we had a thread like this before…I´ll look into that.

I love threads that ask this sort of thing. The character theme songs one is my favourite dead thread that I’m always tempted to resurrect.

I could see Orendi listening to classic Deep Purple, when they had that heavy, frantic metallic sound. After all, she makes them burn with the wave of of her hand…

Good Orendi-choice! :heart: Die Antwoord would be fitting to, imo.

Attikus - Rammstein
