    I was wondering if any of you people heard any songs that were inspired by D&D. If you have, who were they performed by and what were they called?
    I listen to metal mainly and have heard the following songs that are related to D&D:
    Raistlin and the Rose, Burn Fire Burn by Lake of Tears and The Soulforged by Blind Guardian. IMO they aren't realy that good. If any of heard them, what do you think of them?

    It may be only in my opinion, but I think that Black Sabbath's song Neon Knights sounds like one.
    Since they sing about dragons, kings and stuff...

    Led Zeppelin is known for making songs that refer back to Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

    Mithrantir has mentioned The Battle of Evermore, but there are also others, one of my favorites being the Misty Mountain Hop.

    A lot of early heavy metal bands usually sang about "D&D" type stuff - sorcerers, witches, necromancers, warriors, monsters, and other things like that.

    Dungeons and Dragon, by Stephen Lynch. Hilarious song. :D


    Have you heard about the D&D soundtrack Wizards of the Coasts is publishing? It isn't metal, it is more classical background music like in Lord of the Rings and other fantasy movies.

    There was an article about it on the Wizards site a while ago, but I can't find it at the moment. I will give the link if I find it, there are two songs to download.

    There's quite a bit of filk music available at fantasy conventions, or at least there used to be. This is the psuedo-folk music that's based on fantasy. Most of this stuff was produced in someone's basement, so be prepared for some pretty low-quality stuff. I don't know where to go outside of cons to get it, though - maybe google on "filk"?

    The one I remember is:
    Find me a horse, red as the sun
    Find me a blade that will make their blood run!
    For I ride out at dawn while the sun's in the sky
    So the buzzards can see where the bodies will lie.


    Fun stuff, eh?

    Aha! See, if you came to Science Fiction Conventions, you'd know there are LOTS of songs about D&D, and you'd have sung them with me in varying states of inebriation.
    Rolling on a D4

    A Grazing Mace

    The Apprentice's Lament

    Dungeons and Dragons

    And this isn't about D&D, but it's been one of my personal favorites for a long time...

    The Hedgehog Song

    Slappy, do you still have the lyrics to "101 ways to kill your Kangaxx"? I can't find it now...

    The D&D waltz from the movie 'Dungeons and Dragons' is marvellous. I have even danced it, actually :D

    Guess I'm Ready to Roll-Flashlight Brown

    I got a 20 sider on call
    dressed up and ready to roll

    I got the real world blinded
    dressed up and ready to roll

    Midnight, torchlight down in the haunted cave.
    Get some platinum the D.M. will turn the page.

    Check out my thief he's got the black shield
    dressed up and ready to roll
    Check out my sickly cave tan
    dressed up and ready to roll

    Lawful, evil a moral catastrophe
    Half-orc, full-dork; the myth and reality

    We may not know any girls
    But we got graph paper guiding our way
    We got confusion, delusion
    And all of Friday night to kill.

    Pick up the phone the pizza's still late
    dressed up and ready to roll

    Pick up from where your mule died
    dressed up and ready to roll
    That was by far the best time that we ever had.
    That was by far the best time that we ever had.

    Get to the tavern have a few beers
    dressed up and ready to roll
    Pick up an Elvin bar whore
    dressed up and ready to roll
