              I thought someone else had already listed Sabetauge by the Beastie Boys???

              If you open diplomacy with the English, you should hear London Calling by the Clash.

              Mindless wave attacks by Fundamentalist AI governments could be accompanied by the lines from the old Doors tune Five to One:

              they got the guns, but we got the numbers.
              gonna win, yeah, we're takin' over, come-on!

              COckney - that song is from before Madonna was even born. I think it was before I was born too!

              Hey, its Tom Jones' birthday today! He is 60, which doesn't sound as old as it used to. How use could we use It's not Unusual or Beautiful Balloon???

                            would it be possible to make a scenario using triggers to actually make something like this a reality?

                            Who wants to do it?
