Top 5 Songs to put in your Dragon Ball Z AMV

LOOK if you don’t know what an AMV is… Well, I don’t know what to say. It’s an ANIME MUSIC VIDEO, ya dummy! ISN’T THAT OBVIOUS. Just read the list.

Race For The Prize – The Flaming Lips

Race For The Prize could soundtrack any glorious struggle so that covers around 90%-95% of every Dragonball Z episode. Goku creating a spirit bomb for ten episodes? Right here. Vegeta getting the ass beaten out of him for fifteen episodes? Hit that fucking jukebox and play me this tune. Gohan getting pissed off and smashing the shit out of Cell? THIS FUCKING SONG. Just put this on loop non-stop for the entirety of the show.

Spiral Galaxy 28948 – Hawkwind

This is a good choice for the Frieza saga. Space travel and all that kind of shit, right? Just imagine you’re in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber and you’re training to fight some crazy shit (before you say anything I KNOW THEY DON’T GO IN BEFORE FIGHTING FRIEZA JUST USE YOUR GODDAMN IMAGINATION). Then you have to go to Namek and fight this crazy, bald alien dude. This would be the soundtrack. This song has been described as being in the “standard Hawkwind traditions of sweeping synthesiser passages contrasting ethereal space with the violence of monotonous bass and rhythm guitar”. SWEEPING SYNTHESISER PASSAGES? MONOTONOUS BASS? SIGN ME UP.

Rydeen – Yellow Magic Orchestra

I love me some Japanese stuff. THIS SONG IS THE SHIT. Yellow Magic Orchestra are like the Japanese Kraftwerk meaning that they made some of the best music EVER and they’re pioneers and innovators and all that good stuff. If this shit doesn’t make you happy, there’s something wrong with you. I don’t know where this would fit into Dragon Ball Z. Maybe some of the filler sagas? The Great Saiyaman Saga. Boom. Perfect. Or maybe that episode where Goku and Piccolo get their drivers licenses. Also perfect. I know tons of you want to make AMVs about those episodes, so you’re welcome.

The Dragon Ball GT Japanese intro (AKA Dan Dan Kokoro Hikareteku by Field of View)

Just listen to it. It’s fucking glorious. This song also works as a great soundtrack to everything. They should have this song fucking blaring out of speakers on every street corner on the planet. Everyone would be happy. There would be instant world peace. Everyone would have all the money and love in the world. We would all live forever and transcend into a state of utter bliss.

Rock The Dragon – Shuki Levy and Kussa Mahehi

This is an obvious one. Here are the lyrics so everyone can singalong:
