Written, performed, and recorded by members of different units and branches serving with the Baghdad Green Zone protection details.
Sample lyrics from the song "Shadow's Kiss":
They live in our shadow,
in our shadow,
our deep long shadow.
They cower in their cool shadows,
buy burger king and dvds in their shadows,
they don't know what its like to feel
out side the shadow of
of the crimson zone
don't know what its like to
pick up a baby
and kick it through a window
and shit on an old man's face
don't know what its like to
throw grenades at a school
and set fire to a cat
and call in an A-10 strike on a hospital
but we do
but we doooo
Released in June of 2007 on Splatter/Suck Records, Gorriors of Ragnarok brings the reality of life on the streets of Baghdad with the US Marines to anyone with the balls to buy this CD.
Sample lyrics from the song "Holiday in Haditha":
Ancient evil spawned below
owl-eyed demon's blood-faced skulls
hear our gore lust-ing refrain,
SLAY ALL IRAQIS THAT REMAIN!
Blood soaked unicorn of the abyss,
fiery hooves and bloody fists,
We will eat your skin and meat,
We will shit out pellets of hair and teeth
Don't need no excuse to kill,
The whole of the law is kill as you will,
We will step on your eyes and brain,
We will beat your neck with a bike chain!

Sample lyrics from the song "From the Rooftops":
String the Hajji from the rooftops,
String the hajji from the sky,
String the old hajji to a plane,
And let old Hajji have a fly.
Choke the life from Hajji's body,
Wrap his neck in copper wire,
Put a spear through Hajji's rectum,
it's my only true desire.
Every Hajji has a secret,
and his secret is that Hajji's bad,
so when you see the stacks of Hajji,
It's time to laugh and be glad.
Punch a knife through Hajji's brain pan,
Just like in Under Siege,
Melt their hands in high molar acid,
Fallujah is technically under siege.
Strip their women and beat their kids with pipes,
Shoot their pets and put bags on their heads,
Run over their chests with a tracked vehicle,
and force entry and shoot them in their beds.
Next week we'll be offering a fine selection of ululating and trilling music from various Jihadi videos. Which will be the best song? Will it be "Allahu Ackbar!" or will it be "Allah...Ackbar!", who can decide!?
Given our society's obsession with stalking and ridiculing celebrities, it's tempting to seek a life of anonymity. But beware: not being famous has its own hidden costs.
Mass Effect: Andromeda turns its nose up at the original trilogy's rigid morality. It boasts a more nuanced and intellectually compelling shades-of-grey approach in which a heart icon pops up when it's time to tell an alien to take their clothes off.
