Mix - Hellsing - Gentlemen, We Love War

Fandom: Hellsing
Title: Gentlemen, We Love War
Warnings: Some spoilers; lots of Nazis.

A two-disc mix for Millennium, the best bad guys ever. Seriously, they're a bunch of vampire Nazis who set out to make war for no reason other than they feel like it. What could be easier to hate?

The first disc covers the individual characters, with one or two songs for each. The second covers the general arc of the war. Walter's arc is unfortunately only touched on, but aside from that it tries to be comprehensive. Ranges from deadly serious to, frankly, pretty silly.


The Valentine Brothers

1) Voltaire - The Vampire Club
Luke and Jan Valentine recruit from Club M(urder), waited on by vampire chicks dressed in skimpy leather.

There was so much angst after the fight
Vlad and Akasha broke up that night
While some rivet-heads danced in a puddle of goo
That used to be "Father" you-know-who!

Fangs were flying, capes were torn
Hell hath no fury like a vampire scorned...
And Boris at the bar orders a Bud and says,
"It's just another night at the Vampire Club."

2) Eric Idle - FCC Song
Jan Valentine swears. Kind of a lot. (And complains about how Integra spends her money on expensive cigars.)

Fuck you very much the FCC
Fuck you very much for fining me
Five thousand bucks a fuck so I'm really out of luck...

So what the planet fails
Let's save the great white males
And fuck you all so very much

3) Voltaire - When You're Evil
Luke Valentine thinks he's hot stuff. He's in for a surprise when he tries to take on a real monster.

And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

I pledge my allegiance to all things dark
And I promise on my damned soul
To do as I am told, Lord Beelzebub
Has never seen a soldier quite like me
Not only does his job, but does it happily

Tubalcain Alhambra

4) Sting - Shape Of My Heart
The Dandy ditches conventional weapons and fights his battles with a deck of cards.

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart

He may play the jack of diamonds
He may lay the queen of spades
He may conceal a king in his hand
While the memory of it fades

Rip Van Winkle

5) CAKE - Opera Singer
Rip Van Winkle sings as she hijacks a battleship and slays the crew, her warhead making no distinction between riffraff.

Some people, they call me monster
Some people, they call me saint
My talent feeds my darker side
Yet no-one will complain

I am an opera singer
I sing in foreign lands
I've sung for kings in Europe
And emperors in Japan

6) Nightwish - The Phantom Of The Opera
Rip succumbs to the fate that the opera demands: If you wield the magic bullet, Samiel will come for you.

In sleep he sang to me
In dreams he came
That voice which calls to me
And speaks my name
And do I dream again
For now I find
The Phantom of the Opera is here
Inside my mind

Sing once again with me
Our strange duet
My power over you
Grows stronger yet
And though you turn from me
To glance behind
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside your mind


7) :Wumpscut: - Dr. Thodt
The archetypal mad scientist, with multi-lensed glasses and bloodstained coat.

His smile stretches for a mile
Across his bloody mask
Down the white coat spilling
I need treatment

Reaching out from the cold
Dr. Thodt


8) Seussical the Musical - A Day For The Cat in the Hat
In the midst of all the serious plans for war, there's a mischievous catboy prancing around. What's more, he's their secret weapon.

It's time to open the locks and think out of the box and today is your day!
Bounce on the brink of whatever you think and oh, what could be better than that?
And that is the fun of the Cat in the Hat!

Montana Max

9) Styx - Too Much Time On My Hands
Why does the Major decide to start a war? Well, he's a little crazy, but he's also just that bored.

Is it any wonder I'm not crazy?
Is it any wonder I'm sane at all
Well I'm so tired of losing; I got nothing to do and all day to do it
I go out cruisin' but I've no place to go and all night to get there
Is it any wonder I'm not a criminal?
Is it any wonder I'm not in jail?
Is it any wonder I've got
Too much time on my hands
It's ticking away with my sanity
I've got too much time on my hands

10) Jonathan Coulton - Skullcrusher Mountain
The Major hits on Integra.

I’m so into you
But I’m way too smart for you
Even my henchmen think I’m crazy
I’m not surprised that you agree
If you could find some way to be
A little bit less afraid of me
You’d see the voices that control me from inside my head
Say I shouldn’t kill you yet

Picture the two of us alone inside my golden submarine
While up above the waves my doomsday squad ignites the atmosphere
And all the fools who live their foolish lives may find it quite explosive
But it won’t mean half as much to me if I don’t have you here

Zorin Blitz

11) Queen - Killer Queen
Zorin leads the zeppelin attack on the Hellsing mansion. (Most of this song doesn't fit at all. Pretend it's ironic.)

She's a killer queen
Gunpowder gelatine
Dynamite with a lazer beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind...
She's out to get you

12) Sugarcult - Memory
Zorin kills Pip. Big mistake: Seras drinks Pip's blood, absorbs his soul, and goes True Undead, with Pip's memories guiding her.

This may never start
We could fall apart
And I'd be your memory
Lost your sense of fear
Feelings insincere
Can I be your memory?

Hans Günsche

13) Echo & The Bunnymen - The Killing Moon
Standing before a full moon, the Captain catches Walter's wires. The next time we see Walter, he'll be working with Millennium.

Under blue moon I saw you
So soon you'll take me
Up in your arms, too late to beg you
Or cancel it, though I know it must be
The killing time
Unwillingly mine

14) E Nomine - Wolfen (Das Tir In Mir)
(Translation from here.)
Facing down Seras/Pip, the Captain goes werewolf.

Es ist das Tier in mir!
Es weckt die Gier nach dir!
Hab dich zum Fressen gern!
Kannst du mein Verlangen spürn?

Dunkle Wolken und finstere Gedanken,
die Vollmondnacht zerbricht meine Schranken.
In mir kommt die Gier auf Getier, dass ich massakrier.
Spür diese Lust auf Blut jetzt und hier.

It is the animal in me
That awakens my greed for you
I would gladly devour you
Can you sense my desire?

Strange thoughts, wild lust
The desire for the tender breast meat
I want to tear, I want to bite and shred withered flesh
I hunt my prey with lustful agitation


15) Marie Laforêtt - Marie douceur, Marie colère
(Tune is Paint It Black. Translation is mine.)
The mystery woman.

Marie colère ne sera plus du tout d'accord
Et sautera sur toi toutes griffes dehors...
Marie colère est maintenant là devant toi
Marie douceur n'est plus qu'un souvenir déjà

Angry Marie will not put up with this at all
She'll jump on you with claws unsheathed...
Angry Marie is now here before you
Sweet Marie is already no more than a memory


The Oncoming Storm

16) Ronan Hardiman - Nightmare
The Nazi vampire troops in formation. "Let us remind them of the sound of our military shoes pounding."


17) Def Leppard - Gods Of War
Enrico Maxwell takes on the mantle of crusader. "But the enemy is not Allah. The god this time is Mars."

Here it comes, hell in the night
Here it comes, here comes the night
When we all fall down...
We're fighting for the gods of war
But what the hell we fighting for?

18) Culture Club - The War Song
Hellsing faces pressure on all fronts: against Millennium, against Iscariot, against the Round Table.

What's mine's my own
I won't give it to you
No matter what you say
No matter what you do

Now we're fighting in our hearts
Fighting in the streets
Won't somebody help me?...

War, war is stupid
And people are stupid
And I heard them banging
On hearts and fingers>

19) Leith Stevens - War Of The Worlds
A secret enclave of vampire Nazis wants to start World War III. What were the odds?

The chances of anything coming from Mars
Are a million to one
But still, they came...

20) Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Karn Evil 9
The Major is downright gleeful as his show kicks off.

Come inside, the show's about to start
Guaranteed to blow your head apart
Rest assured you'll get your money's worth
The greatest show in Heaven, Hell or Earth...

Right before your eyes we pull laughter from the skies
And he laughs until he cries, then he dies, then he dies

World War III

21) Yasushi Ishii - When You Start The War, Fight With Arrows, Spears, And Swords!
It begins.


22) Peter Gabriel - Games Without Frontiers
The rules are thrown out the window; Iscariot jumps into the fray, on the wrong side.

Adolf builts a bonfire
Enrico plays with it...

If looks could kill they probably will
In games without frontiers
War without tears

23) Lemon Demon - The Ultimate Showdown Of Ultimate Destiny
(See the full animation here.)
Battles on battles on battles, with every character getting a chance to fight. Opponents are shuffled around like cards as alliances change, between organizations and within them.

This is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny
Good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see
And only one will survive, I wonder who it will be
This is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny

Godzilla took a bite out of Optimus Prime
Like Scruff McGruff took a bite out of crime
And then Shaq came back covered in a tire track
But Jackie Chan jumped out and landed on his back
And Batman was injured, and trying to get steady
When Abraham Lincoln came back with a machete
But suddenly something caught his leg and he tripped
Indiana Jones took him out with his whip

24) Final Fantasy VII - Battle in the Forgotten City
Abandoned by the rest of the world, London collapses as the war rages on.


25) Relient K - Down In Flames
Iscariot and Hellsing waste a lot of time fighting each other.

Christians, we mourn, the thorn is stuck
In the side of the body, watch it self-destruct
The enemy is much ignored
When we fight this Christian civil war
We're cannibals, we watch our brothers fall
We eat our own, the bones and all

26) Foo Fighters - Long Road To Ruin
The remains of the Iscariot Organization finally side with Hellsing against Millennium, abandoning principle for despair.

Dear God I've sealed my fate
Running through hell, heaven can wait

Long road to ruin there in your eyes
Under the cold streetlights
No tomorrow, no dead end in sight

27) Iron Maiden - Paschendale
All the while, nameless extras on every side are dying by the score.

I stand my ground for the very last time
Gun is ready as I stand in line
Nervous wait for the whistle to blow
Rush of blood and over we go

Blood is falling like the rain
Its crimson cloak unveils again
The sound of guns can't hide their shame
And so we die in Paschendale

The Aftermath

28) Pink Floyd - The Hero's Return
The heroes win. It's not a glorious victory. The cost is high.

When we came back from the war
The banners and flags hung on everyones door
We danced and we sang in the street
And the church bells rang
But burning in my heart
My memory smoulders on
Of the gunner's dying words on the intercom

29) Pink Floyd - The Gunner's Dream
The Last Battallion is slaughtered and left to die on foreign soil. Their ghosts remain.

In the space between the heavens
And in the corner of some foreign field
I had a dream
I had a dream

Goodbye Max...

Night after night
Going round and round my brain
His dream is driving me insane

30) Enya - Cursum Perficio
(Translation/notes from here.)
From the perspective of eternity, it all makes very little difference.

Cursum perficio
Verbum sapienti
Quo plus habent
Eo plus cupiunt
Post nubila, Phoebus

I finish the course
A word to the wise:
The more [people] have,
The more they want
After the clouds, Phoebus

Bonus: Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie - The War of 1812
They'll be singing silly songs about this war someday too.

In 1812, Madison was mad
He was the president, you know
Well, he thought he’d tell the British
Where they ought to go
He thought he’d invade Canada
He thought that he was tough
Instead we went to Washington
And burned down all his stuff!
