Warcraft: Orcs & Humans
  • Orcish Victory Music, especially when the massive Orc Chieftain's portrait is splayed in the background, with the Orcish narrator explaining the utter destruction of the Kingdom of Azeroth.

Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness + Beyond the Dark Portal

  • It's called simply Human 1, but the name is the only non-epic thing about it. "Human 1" has a heavy metal remix in Heroes of the Storm.
  • Orc 1. War drums playing? Rally the grunts, it's time to go to work.
  • Orc 3 uses a minute and a half to build up the single greatest harpsichord face melter in video game history.
  • Also the intro, helped by the vowel-savoring overacting in the narration.
  • Human 6, a victory fanfare reused in WoW for Alliance battleground victories.

  • The human's defeat theme is almost worth losing to listen to.
  • Let's give the greenies some attention. It makes its return in the bonus campaign to the Warcraft 3 expansion, and in WoW when you go back in time to Durnholde Keep via the Caverns of Time, you get to hear it again.
  • The Orc Briefing. It's the first song you hear in the game (it's used for the main menu) and it's probably the one you'll remember the most.

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos + The Frozen Throne

  • The "First" Human song does a good job of tying together the overall medieval-kingdom-feel of the faction. Be sure to hear the track at 3:28, where is the music segues into what sounds like an anthem for the Human Alliance; it really encourages you to get your army moving into battle. From the Frozen Throne expansion, "Human 4" sums up the state of the Alliance perfectly.
  • Tremble before The Scourge! Better yet, try to listen to the first two tracks simultaneously. The combined tracks sound surprisingly good!
  • Arthas' Betrayal. Sends shivers up the spine.
