the Howard Chaykin onomato for the guns is a reference to the refrain from the Rivingtons' novelty pop song "Papa Oom Mow Mow" which would be instantly recognizable to someone of his generation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow

Okay, so I put the Video Game examples under a WMG header at the top (in a folder, so it can be collapsed) and then all non-videogame examples under another WMG header beneath the Video Game examples, all in their own separate folders.

Reasoning: the "sound so iconic and so awesome, you just want to hear it again" is not limited to videogames.

Now can we please all just get along?

Tell that to the guy who wiped the examples from Most Annoying Sound, as "Sounds so irritating and unpleasant you never want to hear them again" apparently is limited to video games.

I only wiped the non-videogame examples to make the page more consistent with Most Annoying Sound. The reason for wiping over half the examples on that seemed pretty reasonable, so I applied the same nuking to this page. Also this thread. This isn't just some "retarded protest thing"; watch your mouth.

You watch your editing. And you'd better tell Doctor Who fans that the TARDIS does not make the Most Wonderful Sound by the way. Trust me, changing a trope that's already irrevocably associated with something else won't go over well.

So you just wiped them? Didn't even bother to transfer them over to Crowning Music of Awesome?

One big fat "screw you", mister.

...is it just me, or did this page use to have more than one non video game example? Where's all the Star Wars examples, or Doctor Who?

Edit: Oh great, it's because of a retarded protest thing.
