What song would you set an action scene to?

My nominations:

Happiness in Slavery - Nine Inch Nails
Whole Lotta Rosie - AC/DC

What are your ideas?

I think F***in' In The Bushes by Oasis would be a good action scene song, but that's kind of already been done.

Kind of off topic, but I've always thought that Hells Bells by AC/DC would be a good opening for a movie. Or has that already been done, too?

Gave Up - NIN

I always thought the end part of Stairway to Heaven was perfect for some kind of tragic action scene...dunno why.

Unchained - Van Halen

Don't Tread On Me - Metallica

I'd have a few kids singing kids tunes in a slow manner, songs like "Old McDonald" and Barney's "I Love You".

The action scene would be filmed in slow motion and without sound.
