Faith No More with Easy. From the famous 1992 album Angel Dust.

Fox News's Greg Gutfeld is recorded as saying sometime last year: "You’re either a Faith No More fan, or a Red Hot Chili Peppers fan. You cannot love Mike Patton and Anthony Kiedis, because they are two different people. You have to love Mike Patton, you cannot love Anthony Kiedis. So that is why the Red Hot Chili Peppers are the worst band in the universe, because Faith No More is the greatest band in the universe."

Which proves that even Gutfeld is sometimes wrong. I like both bands. Though in all honesty, Kiedis is a bigger *ss than Patton imho.

Hans Zimmer with Leave No Man Behind. From the 2002 soundtrack of Black Hawk Down. To be sure, there were also a number of other musicians involved (Wesson, Pereira, Eastman...)

I consider Black Hawk Down, based on Mark Bowden's book of the same name, one of the greatest war movies I saw so far. I have some problem assessing the personality of the film's director and producer, Sir Ridley Scott. But more on that later.
