LdScotsman gave me an idea.

"Turbo Lover" by da Priest for TTD.

Some of you really got into this. I have to give this some thought before I can add anything else.

Until then I'll say Bon Jovi's "Raise Your Hands" for everything as a default. ;)

I am probably getting this topic wrong...
--
If we are talking about queue-music here, I would say friction is the key! (as long as the music itself is kind of mass-compatible)
Let the people wait in line come up or fail with their own theory of why the song fits.
(example: 'Ecuador' at Riddler's Revenge--- )
Dance music is a plus.
I would like to see more house DJs heating up the coaster queue! :)
If the song makes too much sense, it will become boring and obnoxious pretty soon, imho.

I think queue design in general is often one of the biggest shortcomings of contemporary coaster design... that's where people spend most of the time, after all!
--
If we are talking about music that brings up the idea of the coaster or that would work well with a POV video... well, that's a whole different story.
It's funny how trance techno/eurodance always seems to fit the bill for steel coasters, while wood coasters seem to be better aligned with alternative rock/grunge/punk.

But sometimes the lyrics just fit too well, I admit :)

LOL! Queue music!! Brings back fond memories of hearing "The Joker" while waiting for the Beast in the rain back in the mid to late 80's. Multiple times....

How about Voodoo by Godsmack? I love that song. I guess the obvious would be:

Voodoo: Voodoo at Dorney

No, I'm talking about what a coaster's "THEAM SONG" might bee

I understand you're talking theme...but the lyrics fit I think.

Chorus:

Breathe, Breathe in,

Feeling, freezing

I'm coming back again

I'm coming back again

I remember a video of Hades with "Burn in Hell" by Twisted Sister. I think it was on youtube.

I can't believe the amount of Metal Heads in this thread...and I thought I was alone.

Rock You Like A Hurricane - Scorpions... Hoosier Hurricane, Triple Hurricane, ect...

God of Thunder - KISS... Zeus - Mt. Olympus *** Edited 4/11/2008 12:30:57 AM UTC by Blackie***

Back in the early '90s, I made a few coaster videos from my coaster footage.
Big Bad Wolf & Anaconda - "Animal" by Def Leppard
Mean Streak - "Mean Streak" by AC/DC
Loch Ness Monster - "Go Zone" by AC/DC
Shockwave(SFGAm) - "Heads I Win, Tails You Lose" by Ratt
Iron Wolf - "Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leppard
Magnum XL-200 - "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne

They were pretty cool videos. Magnum's was the best one. I listened to it many times and wrote down the times I wanted certain footage to be placed. Remember, this was before computer editing came out. Made the video certain length, and then dubbed music over it.

Wish I could find the tape with these on it. *** Edited 4/11/2008 5:31:13 AM UTC by CoffinBoy***

This is a fun thread. Great answers! Personally ANYTHING that rocks and is upbeat and kickass is good to me. Hell, I even like the music on California Screamin'.

ALL coasters should have a rock and roll soundtrack to them. ;) It should be in the rules. :)
