Who said running the shadows was easy? Dodging bullets, swords, spirits, and spells just to name a few. Elves, Dwarves, Trolls, even the occasional Dragon can make any Shadowrun go bad.

What song do you think is the perfect one for Shadowrun?

I pick The Wrong Side by Abney park:

Lyrics:

I run on the wrong side of life,
I'm the one that you fear when you hold your wife.
I run where the darker crowds run,
On the rain swept streets where the black rain runs.

I play where the darker kids play
I'm the one who goes out when you end your day.
I dance where the darker crowds dance,
In the pitch black clubs in a clove stained trance.

I see things the darker kids see
Though you wouldn't believe all that's happened to me.
I've been to the backside of hell,
And I've played with your fear and enjoyed it well.

This our time, the nights our day
We'll dance this fading life away.

Secret Agent Man seems appropriate.

Not my favorite version of the song, but the first version I found:

Edit: I could see Piss All Over Your Grave for some characters. "I hope that you die young, I hope you die in pain, I hope you die alone in the pouring rain..."

Despite the fact that the series in particular takes place 41 years before SR4. i think it fits.

Electric Light Orchestra's "The Buildings Have Eyes" seems very appropriate too, although it's probably not grungy enough for most folk.

Electric Light Orchestra's "Four Little Diamonds", on the other hand, is a bit rougher. It has always sounded to me like a job advertisement for 'runners, complete with all the implied vindictiveness and betrayal that goes with the work they do.

The very nature of running is most likely something illegal, unless your on guard duty lol so i choose the above. I have others some in Japanese and some techno. but this stuck out in my mp3's enjoy

Nothing depicts the utter dystopia of the Shadowrun universe like Keyboard Cat.

For runs south of the Mason-dixon line, I'm partial to this song:



In the South, we like our crime a bit more soulful.

For something closer to our Seattle Home:



Pink mohawk, ftw!


But, in general, I think this fits the whole of the setting best.




Just nice, dark, and edgy.

I'd have to say, off the top of my head, I'd have to say that Mega-Corp runs most certainly bring up the song Guilty, by Gravity Kills, in my mind. Besides, I need to hear something industrial or heavy on the gritty guitar to get me in mind of SR.:




Along the same line, I have to say that Disturbed also brings to mind the grit I see in Shadow Run. This one does bring me into the mood, but it's kind of iffy, depending on what you're doing with your game:



And last, but certainly not least, The Thing I Hate, by Stabbing Westward, however, my internet is being a pain, and won't link the video....

I really like "Guilty" and it does fit quite well. Plus, it's metal, which is always a plus in my book.

A cover by Disturbed, "Land of confusion."

The music of the 80s meet the grunge of cyberpunk. Or so it feels for me.
