Worst Doom music track

I don't really dislike anything about doom. Not even the midis. I enjoy it all! :)

the one used in bloodfalls. It's a shitty version of the one used in Monster Condo. I mean come on why have both?

 

Map02 is great though! haters gonna hate. The best doom music (just like any other music) isn't metal, it's all the other stuff.

I might be biased at this point, but I think there aren't any objectively bad tracks in the OST. Period.

I was stunned that I couldn't find a single rip of the glitched version, so I went ahead and recorded it for your listening "pleasure"

 

 

 

The MIDI sounds like it's dying for the first few seconds.. Almost reminds me of the agonizing sound of an NES or Famicom when it hangs or something. Without the context given by the drums and bassline it all sounds pretty damn weird. I actually kinda got a headache just recording this from that goddamn droning note right at the beginning.

 

That droning .... ugh. 

 

Why didn't it just start with the part 10 seconds later,? It's terrible. The rest is quite good it just doesn't shine in midi format.

 

Echoing what has been said about d2 m04 it's weird and not doom-like, and that monotonous noise used in 12 and 24.

 

As for d_runnin,  come on, it's miles ahead of those I mentioned above, but people are dying from being overexposed to it.

Even without the repetition d_runnin really doesn't suit a game like Doom imo, it sounds a lot like food parlor music to me.

Tunes like map02 probably don't fit in either, since it's salsa music apparently.

I will go with Map 02 Underhalls too... it sounds like it should be playing in a lounge on a cruise ship.

The music from "The gauntlet"  , it's the most uninspiring music according to me.  I have no idea on which kind of map this music could fit well.

"Running from Evil" though it's mostly overexposure and when I don't get upset at it playing in the first couple of seconds then I don't mind it.

"Bye-Bye American Pie" and "Getting Too Tense" on the other hand... At least GTT is cool the first minute around but if the level lasts longer I just have to change the music to something less tiring on the ears. BBAP is just tiring immediately.

I think I'm too blinded by nostalgia to say that any of the tracks are bad. Most of my custom maps almost never started on MAP01, and I almost never use Doom II as a primary resource .wad anyway. Therefore, D_RUNNIN hasn't been ruined for me as much as it has for others (although I will admit that it is easily the weakest track in the series).

 

I LOVE all of the music in TNT: Evilution! It's so powerful and gets me in the perfect mood for some demon killin'.

 

I'm not sure what the hell my laptop does when it reads the midis, for some reason the sounds are always different on my laptop compared with whenever I hear it on someone else's computer. To be honest, I've gotten so accustomed to the different sound on my laptop that I kind of prefer it over the originally intended sounds. I've always wanted to record the music and sound effects as they are played on my laptop just so that I can use them for ringtones.

I heavily disagree, that is one of my favourite tracks! I always felt that it fit well with the map, though that's my opinion so whatever.

Except Into The Beast's Belly, because it is boring, waste of time to listen, and sounds like baby crying.

I don't dislike any of the music from TNT, as I said I love it all.

 

Feel free to have whatever negative opinions you want about anything, but do not put words into my mouth.

Doom 2 Map 4. I never really liked it.

This. It's not a bad song on its own merits, but it sounds like it would fit better as a Commander Keen tune (or a song for a similarly family friendly fare). Too bright and happy, especially in a map as dark and foreboding as Map04 in Doom 2.

I'm shocked that not everyone is saying D_RUNNIN. It's pure concentrated elevator muzak.

It's very difficult for me to pick least favorites as I have a spot for all of them, mostly due to nostalgia. However, to list some that are strictly my least favorites (but not outright bad otherwise), it'd probably be something like:

 

Doom: The Demons from Adrian's Pen (E2M2). This was a hard one because I don't even dislike this track at all, but I'd put it at the bottom of the ones I do like the most.

Doom II: Adrian's Asleep (MAP25). This one doesn't do much for me. I still like it in some ways, but again, bottom-lister.

Evilution: Text screen music. Very epic 5-second song!!!! For a more "serious" pick, Into the Beast's Belly (MAP08 et al.) works well for a boss theme but I don't much like hearing it on longer levels, and it could definitely benefit from a 25% volume drop, at least.
