Got your own song for a beatin’ to the beat? Feel the rhythm, get free games!

The musically inclined Crypt of the Necrodancer is here, ready for you to get groovin’ to beat the baddies better with your awesome dance skills.

We want to make the DRM-free arrival even more special, and that's why we need your help with creating our unique Crypt of the NecroDancer playlist! Pick a tune that would rock some skeleton-socks off and submit it in this thread - later on, we'll take a community vote on the Top 10 awesomest tracks and reward the winners.

1. Pick a song you think would do well as the background for an in-game boss fight. If you're the musical type, it can even be your own song!
2. Post a comment with a link to the song and up to 50 words explaining why it’s the one before the deadline.
3. Win game codes!

Bonus challenge: got the game already? Record yourself playing with the song of your choosing to prove that it’s possible. It won't guarantee a win, but we'll throw in an extra bonus code if you make the Top 10!

You have 48 hours - that is until Saturday, August 15th, 1pm GMT to post your entries. We aim to pick winners from across the English, French, German, and Russian forums before the end of next week.

Get jiggy with it!
Are you guys going to release a video or a post detailing the winners and the music they used? It would be an awesome way to get good new songs for the game.
Scary Monsters (and super creeps), by David Bowie.

You don't get much more monstrous than this, after all. And with that peculiar Bowie feel, which is all the better.
Well, it's my fav TW3 piece, but I imagine it'd make a difficult final level for Crypt.
I don NOT own the game, plus OBS is a bleeding botch, so no vid for ya :(
Iced Earth - Dystopia

With the strong focus on rhytmic, catchy and heavy melodies, the epicly opening Dystopia is about fighting a secret emperor (a BIG BOSS basically) who controls the souls and minds of the whole society including you. Will you succeed to rise against the meanie through the heavy rhythms...

John 5 - Black widow Of La Porte
(sry, can't post links for some reason)

Ultra cool metal with the most amazing tune you ever heard
I'll be Impressed if anyone can beat this! ;)
Elegance: The Wavering Light (instrumental) by Samudra

Aggressive enough that there aren't lulls that might put one at a false sense of security but not so frenetic that it requires downing a case of Red Bull just to keep in sync with the tempo.
Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up

Because we can use the trolls weapon against them.
DEVO - Through Being Cool

It's got a nice beat to it, the general theme of the song ("Eliminate the ninnies and the twits" and "Time to clean some house", for example) would be perfect for fighting, and it's pure 80's awesomeness courtesy of DEVO.

Edit because I was initially exceeding the limit. Can I still win?

How about the Mini Boss theme from Sonic 3?

This song definitely has a "dance" feel to it! Since the character in Necrodancer has to constantly move, it seems to fit!

An awesome 8-bit mix of the songs from the last Daft Punk hit album. It really highlights the genius of the crazy beats and slightly nostalgic melodies of their last magnum opus. Perfect for smashing monsters! Crypt of the Random Access Memories?

Sorry, but i can`t choose only one song, so i propose two perfect songs, one from Super Hexagon - "Chipzel - Focus", and second from youtube - Best of Chiptune. Enjoy it! Really nice soundtrack for Crypt of the Necrodancer!
HaaYaargh: All right guys! I made this video still in the office (obviously after working hours ;)) so please forgive missed beats, at the beginning and at the end of the run. Also not really nice ending (no time to install fancy video editor to cut it).

Loituma - Ievan Polkka <--- the link is here

And of course I'm not participating in the contest (beyond the competition anyway!). I really like the game, so I thought why not? Maybe it will inspire you to make your own videos? Who knows? Enjoy!
We've got a winner :))
HaaYaargh, my thumb momentarily up! Thank you for the perfect song!

I just edited my post because I realized that 50 characters was the limit, not the minimum, and I initially exceeded the limit. Can I still be eligible to win, or are there rules against editing that I was unaware of?
<span class="bold">Fear Factory - Remanufacture (Demanufacture)</span>

High tempo, aggressive industrial metal, for those who want a challenging boss fight. This track is all about raw power and speed. It's also featured in another classic game, so it's a good fit for a GOG playlist in my opinion :D
