Wolfenstein: The New Order is shaping up to be one of my highly anticipated games of this year. I’m a massive fan of alternate history storylines and MachineGames is doing everything in their power to help make the game’s alternate timeline where the Nazis control the world as authentic as possible. That’s where the soundtrack steps in to help seal the deal.
Once the Nazis have conquered the military world, it’s obvious the next step is to conquer the pop culture world, right? Die Käfer is an excellent parody of one of the biggest bands in the world, The Beatles and their track “Mond, Mond, Ja, Ja” is a straight up mocking of every 60’s pop song from The Monkees to The Beach Boys. The simple lyricss, the zesty guitar riffs and that authentic old fashioned nature to this song helps make it feel like it’s a long lost record from an unknown German pop band. It’s a fun track that is a loving parody of She Loves You and it’s always interesting to see videogame music perform parodies of songs that fit into the game world. (The barbershop quarter version of God Only Knows in Bioshock Infinite is a definite stand out.)
Please enjoy “Mond, Mond, Ja, Ja” below, and let us know what you think in the comments!
