Those Shadow of Mordor Uruks are hilarious and the fact that they get stronger when you lose to them really does make you mad. hahaha "I'm the bloody Tark slayer and you're killing me! I guess that makes you the Tark Slayer Slayer."

I'd nearly forgotten about Split Enz. That was a flashback.

Minor correction but Metal Dance by SPK was originally released in 1983 as a single and then came out on the album Machine Age Voodoo in 1984. I played the original 7 inch version from 1983 and not the album version released in 1984.
