* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkvPw1vm_j8 first game's intro song]], which itself is remixed from a Immediate Music song. It pretty much fits the atmosphere of the first game.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se6GcPS8c-A second half of the Pegasus Bridge campaign]] is an endurance mission in which a British force must continuously defend a bridge from mounting German forces for over 10 minutes while being pushing back with dwindling men. The increasingly desperate situation is largely devoid of music until the last 3 minutes, when [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0ZlMXkzUqI this emotional reprise of the credits theme]] kicks in just as the British are finally backed with reinforcements as the Germans retreat.
** Also, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIBe63zCGS0 theme]] played in the final level and credits.
* ''World At War'' features some truly amazing tracks, such as the powerful "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeTW2MRUpes Red Army Theme]]" (ESPECIALLY the kick-ass version [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZYoQpRUFG4 with guitars]]) and the frantic "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFuylKrQ-js Zero Alt.]]"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nk4DqkZFdLM "The One"]] from the new "Shi no Numa" DLC. Creepy CrazyAwesome.
** As is its successor, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GYx3Zacy9s "Beauty of Annihilation"]] from the new "Der Reise" DLC.
** And no mention of the Nazi Zombies soundtrack would ever be complete with the song that started them all off, the fantastic [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RD73MqyHiRM Lullaby for a Dead Man]].
** And the old school [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbtTUUvNY4Q "Taking Stalingrad"]] from the first game. Badass epic song, coping with screens from ''Film/EnemyAtTheGates'' and you as Vasiliy Zaitsev's twin brother, taking on the German machine-guns with just some ammo bullets. ''[=WaW=]'' and ''[=MW2=]'' are probably some of the best games in history but nothing beats the good old fashioned ''[=COD1=]''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfpZ-H0Wk68 "Red Square"]], and its epic remix [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTPS-nwZkks The Flag Must Fall]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycGO_gR9oq4 Dog Fire]] is reminiscent of Control Room with its fiddles, but takes a much darker turn.
* ''Call of Duty: VideoGame/ModernWarfare''. Some standout themes include:
** The themes for the USMC in all their levels (especially "Shock and Awe").
** The [=OpFor=] theme, played out in full in "The Coup" is epic evil.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=df7N1HqrMyM Sins of the Father]]", which plays when [[spoiler:chasing Zakhaev's son through the suburbs]] and when [[spoiler:defending against the Ultranationalists' reinforcements while on the destroyed bridge.]]
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3VXfYYO618 Loyalists]]", played after you [[spoiler:finally stop Zakhaev and his bodyguards]], is a somewhat sorrowful track that perfectly fits the Loyalists' rescue scene.
* Just about everything [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Hans]] [[Film/BlackHawkDown Zimmer]] did for ''Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2'' is awesome. "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5z_4e678TNk Control Room]]" is a standout track, if only because it's the best use of a fiddle since, well, ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof''!
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMDPwBikzps Boneyard FlyBy]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpOFeNdv1sY Whitehouse EndRun]]" are also top notch tracks from the [[ModernWarfare MW2]] soundtrack.
* [=MW3=]'s soundtrack, courtesy of Brian Tyler (of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' fame), has some excellent tracks as well. "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLJ5ys5oh3Q Russian Deliberations]]" lends an awesome sense of gravitas to the Russian President's entrance, while the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrSonUkJ1a4 Main Theme]] carries an epic feeling of finality, fitting for the end of the trilogy.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZbvd9_5yqU Arabian Endgame]], the music for the final level, is pure epic in musical form.
* Whether you like ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps Black Ops]]'' or not, you've got to admit that some of its music is damn good. For example, the spawn themes are really good at pumping you up for a game! [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiczipBey_Y This]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TiUuPIYPKo or maybe this]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3inBhIDjGA and for sure this]] all stand out. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOeUwP7EGKk full factions]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcmYV1TsDlU themes]] are as good.
** Also, the zombie soundtrack is especially nice. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsJyE4-SQNs The main theme]] does a good job of setting the mood for your 30 minute zombie killing marathon. And who hasn't gone to the extra trouble of picking every meteorite fragment to hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnxkIX9uN2s this]] while blasting zombies?
** The Kowloon level "Numbers" had [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhxCxtSNKjw this]] as good background music, especially from 8:17 onwards.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUZbeDx5JGA Escaping Vorkuta,]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Blb0_JUFns0 The Pentagon Theme.]]
** There's a certain campaign mission where you pilot a boat down a Vietnamese river at night, shooting a combination of rockets and gunfire at the Vietcong on the shoreline. Treyarch could've just put in orchestral music in the background to reflect the action of the level, but what do they play instead? The freaking '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEgVI-IKpqk Rolling Stones]]'''.
** And Eminem (yes, Eminem!) feat. Pink with "Won't Back Down". A-mazing and awesome.
* Jack Wall truly outdoes himself with ''Black Ops II'''s soundtrack. In the ''very first mission'', your ears are greeted with the epic brass and percussion of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUYAX3z2JYc Savimbi's Pride]]", and the game just keeps coming at you with equally awesome tracks from there. Standouts include "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Udj7uRZ7_WM Suicide Ride]]" (from "Old Wounds"), the "[[http://youtu.be/hBssWMLDKUE theme of Raul Menendez]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9PkqtqaA6A Dockside]]" (from the end of "Karma"), "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-Synp_FEbw Dogfight]]" (from the F/A-38 sequence in "Cordis Die"), and the epic finisher that is "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ja4EJ8TI_SA Hero's Theme]]" (played as [[spoiler:Menendez is carted off to jail at the very end of the campaign]]). And of course, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7GC_TaJxMI main theme]], composed by [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor]], is exceptional as well, doing a great job of setting the mood for a bleak, violent future war.
** While the "Raul Menendez Theme" is good, it's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ay6uOlxKnWg&t=0m30s Cordis Die]]" that tends to serve as Menendez's {{Leitmotif}}.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEUFhtIbwvw The Judgement Day score.]] It gets more awesome at 2:36. It really gives the impression that one way or another, Cordis Die ends TODAY.
