Writing soundtrack: Army Green: Hooligans

I'm always curious to see what other authors listen to while writing, so I'm going to try to make my own soundtracks more accessible to peeps. My first post is the one I listen to most often. Keep an eye out for more Hooligans in 2012!

Links go to Youtube. I tried to link to official videos where they existed. Top of the list is a little metal heavy, so some of the vids may be graphic in nature. Be warned.
