The famed lizard has decreed that this week we will feature only “riffs” from OSTs. It was a tough requirement, but many of you rose to the challenge.

Last week, I won, and rightly so. Bow to the might of Gloryhammer.

Next week:

  • It’s a normal Riff ov the Week. If you have one you’ve been saving, time to use it.
  • Send your riffs to toiletovhellriff@gmail.com. Include your name, a link to the video, the time of the riff, and an explanation.
  • If you have an idea for a theme, let me know.

 

Masterlord

DIE OF SORROW.
*willingly enters locker*

 

W.

The riff at 1:09 will break into your house and tear your wife in half.

 

Ted Nü-Djent

Hard category this week and after my first idea for submission was knocked on the head by that reptilian scalliwag I had to go back to the drawing board. Enter South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut and DVDA. Riff starts at 0:35 with guest vocals by one Jaymz Hetfield. It was either this or Blame Canada.

 

Lacertilian

This fucking riff.

 

Tigeraid

I was thinking of somewhat obvious choices like The Matrix or Heavy Metal, but then I remembered the FUCKING Rules of the Movie Theatre, thanks to Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters! The base riff from start to finish is nice and crunchy. Can you imagine being smacked around by this in an actual theatre?

 

Richter

We did it reel to reel. 0:00. Or whenever.

 

Óðinn

I am Óðinn, the God of wisdom, war, art, culture, and the dead. I am the supreme deity and creator of the cosmos. Your false gods are meaningless. They will be destroyed. This is my Riff ov the Week submission, “No Shelter” by Rage Against the Machine from the Godzilla (1998) soundtrack. The riff starts at 0:19. This is the only movie theme song, that I know of, which flat out disses the film for which it was written. Hail Óðinn!

 

Xan

Riff starts at 0:24. Out of the bevvy of kick-ass tunes that one is treated to while brutally murdering people, this has to be one of my favorites. It has the wonderful synth that one might hear in an ’80s action film and it perfectly sets the scene for bludgeoning people to death with hammers and bats.

 

KJU

This is actually a series of dueling solos, from one of the most underrated movies of all time.

 

Monkey

Whether or not you like anime, you gotta admit it, the opening for Trigun is feckin badass. A lovely bit of Clutch-esque stoner rock goodness from Tsuneo Imahori sets the mood perfectly for one of the greatest sci-fi western’s around.

 

Coolstorybro

I present to y’all Soundgarden‘s “Birth Ritual” from the Cameron Crowe Seattle grunge love letter “Singles.” Other than featuring a bunch of awesome artists (including Chris Cornell as a less-than-reputable car stereo installer), the movie kinda sucks. Luckily, “Birth Ritual” kicks ass once dat riff kicks in at 0:03. Kim Thayall lets ‘er rip while Chris shrieks his fucking head off like the world’s coming to a grisly end.

 

Boss

“No one knows who they were, or what they were doing”, utters Nigel Tufnel as Spinal Tap rips in to Stonehenge. OST? Check. Metal? Check. Riff? 1:25-2:05. Check.

  • Boss the Ross

    I will cut you with a linoleum knife!!!!!!!!!!

  • KJM, Shake Zula

    Not one single track from Judgment Night? Posers.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvfIXXjBuNk

    • Boss the Ross

      I was going to choose Just Another Victim, Paige Hamilton is the man, thought it would be too obvious though.

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        I honestly thought there would be at least one from this disc.

        • Boss the Ross

          Instead we have 2 mastodons.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I almost went with RATM because it was the best thing about that damned movie.

          • Boss the Ross

            I like the song, still refuse to view that abomination though. No overdubs, no Godzilla.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Check this out. It’s Summer 1998. It’s a beautiful day and I’m on my way to see Godzilla. Just got paid, I’m rockin’ an awesome buzz, and all’s right with the world.

            SNAP!

            Out of fucking nowhere my left ankle(the good one) rolls on me and I go down. I don’t own a car and I’m miles from home. I say “Fuck it, I will not be beaten by this” and limp to the movie theater anyway after taking a couple more tokes down by the Charles River.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            It made it onto BOLA anyway

          • Iron Spagheti’O Nose Hair Doom

            Saw it in theaters with my dad, and yes it is THAT fucking awful!

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      No one submitted this either
      https://youtu.be/ZTidn2dBYbY

      • Max

        If that film had actually come out in 1985, when I was ten, I wouldn’t have even seen the parody. I would have thought it was legit brilliant.

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          Totally

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          I was 8

      • Iron Spagheti’O Nose Hair Doom

        Hopefully they get the crowdfunding money to make a full length film out of that.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      What about Slayers cover of In A Gadda Da Vida off Less Than Zero?

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        It’s a cover though but good pick up

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    Sorry @Óðinn I have No Shelter on my copy of Battle Of Los Angeles

    • Lacertilian

      I thought I’d seen it on an album, one of my mates used to love RATM and had a lot of their shit.

  • KJM, Shake Zula

    m/ Mastodon m/

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      Was going to vote but 2 submissions of the same song cancels each other out for mine. If I vote for one, it’s unfair on the other

      • Boss the Ross

        It was one of the first riffs that came to mind, so we almost had 3.

      • Vote for Jeb

        But we picked 2 different riffz. Ted plz!

      • tigeraid

        Damn you! Tough but fair.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        what makes a man, is it the woman in his arms?

        just cause she has big titties?

        or is it the way, he fights every day?

        No, it’s probably the titties

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    Parker/Stone could have had their own OST theme

    • The sky is blue and all the leaves are green. My heart’s as full as a baked potato!

    • No More Mr. Nice Guy. Featured on Shocker OST film and featured a heroin fueled Mustaine that was so fucking drugged that he couldn’t stand in his feet too much time:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1TfSa9vU2U

      • JWEG

        I very nearly submitted this, but thought it might have been too cheesy to gather votes.

        • Boss the Ross

          It’s a classic Alice Cooper riff, metalized by Mr. Mustaine and the boys. Cheesy? Maybe. Freaking rips? Most definitely.

    • Breakpoint. Was featured on Mario Bros OST. Jajaja, yeah, that garbage.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxfL8OL1WaU

    • Boss the Ross

      Looks like somebody else also has the Hidden Treasures EP. Good stuff! I almost picked one of these.

      • Jajajaja, I love that album, Boss. 99 ways to die is one of my ‘deth favourite songs.

        • Boss the Ross

          Hell yeah.
          IF I SEE THE MORNING HOURS, I’LL HAVE ONE MORE YESTERDAY!

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        I have it on this

        • Dude, that Wembley Stadium was one of the best concerts I’ve heard, love it.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      It is merol though.

    • Zeke

      I submitted this for the last solo ov the week. Sick song

      You an All-Blacks fan or Frenchy?
      Wallabies play tomorrow night mate.

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        I just thought the Wales v Sprinboks would have been a good game. Fell asleep just after half time. Woke up on the lounge just after half time in the All Blacks game and saw they were smashing the French so I decided to take my arse to bed.

      • Iron Spagheti’O Nose Hair Doom

        All Blacks are my favorite sports team.

  • Voted Masterfeels because feels.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I didn’t even listen to his submission because fuck that nerdy shit

      • Vote for Jeb

        NO ANIME

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          Is this what that is?

          • Vote for Jeb

            No, it’s from a video game. It is, however, one of the lamer games in the series, so he should feel bad.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Yes I’m aware, I just needed to share a poor joke on that Anime can sound like Annie May

          • Vote for Jeb

            You lizard people are weird.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            And tired. It’s 2.00am now

          • Maik Beninton™

            Who the fuck is Annie May?

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            I now regret my comment

          • Lacertilian

            I liked it.

          • But that song is good 🙁

            And yes, the game isn’t that good.

      I was going to submit the badge but I got too sidetracked this week

  • Scrimm

    Night of the Demons wins.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      It got my vote

    • Too bad that Morbid Angel tune from Part 2 wasn’t written exclusively for the movie.

      • Lacertilian

        Well, now you know where all three of your votes thus far came from.

        • I always know, Lizzy. Al Ways. (Because usually the vote-count is 0.)

          • Lacertilian

            That riff reminded me a little of some Deep Purple, the vocals no but the riff alone.

      • Scrimm

        Thats right!

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    Another missed opportunity

  • BEARD-SPLITTER

    fyi, ders. I vote XAN this week. The sound track to Hotline Miami is the best part of that game(s). I dont know if I’d call it a riff, but it does riff.

  • Count_Breznak

    Ah, Final Fantasy, the videogame äquivalent of the Insane Clown Posse. Especially the fans.

  • Maik Beninton™

    I voted for KJU, because… whatever, it was either that or Tigeraid.

  • Max

    Well, that was easy. Stonehenge.

  • Waynecro

    First, let me just say that although I enjoyed voting, it physically hurt me to stop listening to the new Panopticon CD long enough to check out these submissions and vote. Seriously, that CD is fucking awesome. Second, again I failed to make time to submit something. I ran out of time before I could check to see whether Stan Bush’s songs from The Transformers: The Movie, Bloodsport, and Kickboxer appeared on any of his albums. Third, this was another tough decision. It came down to Final Fantasy, ATHF, South Park, Six String Samurai, Trigun, Soundgarden, and Spinal Tap.
