Sometimes when listening to this, I run around and pretend to be Solid Snake. My neighbors are frequently assaulted by air soft guns.

This a ripoff of the Rock? That's a stretch....b e s i d e s Harry Gregson-Will i a m s (who I believe composed this theme) worked on the Rock soundtrack, so obviously similarities are going to be noticeable.

And if you want a rip-off of the Rock soundtrack, check out The Dawn by the power metal band Dreamtale

Sigint:"Uh Snake...what are you doing?"
Snake:"I'm in a box."
Sigint:"A cardboard box? What are you...?"
Snake:"I dunno. I was just looking at it, and suddenly I got this irresistible urge to get inside. No, not an urge - more than that. It was my destiny to be here; in the box."
Sigint:"Dest i n y . . . ? "
Snake:"Yeah. And them when I put it on, I suddenly got this feeling of inner peace. I can't quite put it into words. I feel...safe. Like this is where I was meant to be. Like I'd found the key to tr

I knew this sounded familiar. Odd that it played on my Utada Hikaru station, but it's good nonetheless!

My favorite metal gear game and the only one i beat (less than 12 hours) definitely worth playing. Music in all metal gear games are well composed as the games themselves

Wow, I didn't know that about this song. Interesting. The original is beautiful too... the MGS song is really quite a reimagining, with a lot of new content in it, but that main theme part is definitely a theft.

You people have all been had. The melody for 'Metal Gear Solid' was in fact stolen from an earlier piece of music from a classical Russian composer: http://www.y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v = d T c N U o x C m H I I still love the theme, but its not original. You can borrow styles from other composers but it is generally not allowed to take the melody(s) from prior work without compensating or giving credit to the original composer.

heroic epicness, the best kind...

This song basically brings tears to my eyes at the end because it just reminds me of all the stuff the Troops do for us over there. BTW.. For those who enjoy this Please add Nobuo Uematsu to a new station and enjoy music from all kinds of games. Halo, MGS, Final Fantasy, you name it!

Talint:

Yea sure both soundtracks have basically the same style, but there are distinct melodies in each that help to differentiat e . MGS soundtracks didn't reinvent the wheel, they were just damn good at what they did.

Like this? Check out Nick Glennie's soundtrack for the movie "The Rock". It's basically a direct rip off.
