Granted, I'm a huge Firefly fan, too.... 

But I'm also an old school Rock and Roll kind of guy.  Firefly was awesome, and unjustly killed before its time.  Yet, there's always Jackson Browne....

People stay.... Just a little bit longer,
We wanna play just a little bit longer,
I hope your mother don't mind,
And the Union don't mind,
If we take a little time and we leave it all behind and sing
One more song!

Oh, won't you stay?
Just a little bit longer,
Please, please, please, say you will,
Say you will!

...Oh, won't you stay just a little bit longer, oh,
Won't you stay just a little bit longer?

And your mother don't mind,
And your brothers don't mind,
If we take a little time and we leave it all behind and sing,
One more song...!

There's a lot of love for the Firefly music.  Understandably so; it was great music for a great show.

However, let's not mix our messages (if any of this music is rolled into a message).  At worst, people will hear the music and think we're another wave of "Bring back Firefly!" campaigners (which we might also be, in other times and places); even for some who know that we're not, they're liable to wonder why we're using the music of another media movement for our own.

I'd also think a 'Save CoH' vid from Samuraiko featuring this song would be amazing...1st heard it some years ago on The Cape Radio....

Her plate is pretty full.  Try the main forum's Fan Creations board to see if there's an interest!

I just thought of one... will post both a link and some of the lyrics and you'll see why it came to mind

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZ-D4jmkUiQ

"I Still Believe" (Frank Turner)


Hear ye, hear ye
Friends and Romans, countrymen
Hear ye, hear ye
Punks and folks and journeymen

Hear ye, hear ye
My sisters and my brethren
Our time is coming near

Come ye, come ye
To soulless corporate circus tops
Come ye, come ye
To toilet circuit touring stops

Come ye, come ye
To bedrooms, bars and bunker squats
The sound is ringing clear

And who'd've thought that after all
Something as simple
As rock 'n' roll would save us all?
Who'd've thought that after all
It was rock n roll

[...]

And I still believe
Now who'd've thought that after all
Something as simple
As rock 'n' roll would save us all?
Now who'd've thought, after all
Something so simple, something so small

Who'd've thought that after all
It's rock n roll

I have theme songs for all my toons, and I think this one would be ideal

3 Doors Down - Citizen/Soldier
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgV6VUinDEA

Beyond the boundaries of your city's lights,
Stand the heroes waiting for your cries.
So many times you did not bring this on yourself,
When that moment finally comes,
I'll be there to help.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here.
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready because we will always be there.

When there are people crying in the streets,
When they're starving for a meal to eat,
When they simply need a place to make their beds,
Right here underneath my wing,
You can rest your head.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here!
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready because we will always be there...

There... there... there...

Hope and pray that you'll never need me,
But rest assured I will not let you down.
I'll walk beside you but you may not see me,
The strongest among you may not wear a crown.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here!
On that day when you don't have the strength for the burden you bear,
I'll be right here!
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
(Citizen soldiers)
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready because we will always be there.

I don't have a link right now, but I'd recommend the City of Heroes Orchestral Theme,
by OminousVoice on Youtube.

Or were you thinking of this one?

Music doesn't do quite as much for me, but awfully good.

Yeah! The first link is it. Anyway, that's my suggestion.

I had Nickelback in my head and seemed to remember an ancient video using Demorecord. I actually found two:

I am so sorry.  You can use HeadOn to get it out.

In our City I will show
'Cos to a mission I want to go
I love the game...I've watched it grow
But since the news of the 31st I think you ought to know

That I'll keep flying long as I have wings
And I'll keep loving all this game brings
I'll keep stallin' till the pendulum swings
'Cos the game ain't over till the fat lady sings
 

NCSoft I can't tell
If your profits weren't all that  swell
(it seemed like all was well)
But since your news I haven't gone to hell
 

So I'll keep pluckin' at your old heart strings
I'll keep truckin' long as a noobie dings
I'm not duckin' what tomorrow brings
'Cos the game ain't over till the fat lady sings
 

Babs has  left Galaxy town
Positron hid his frown
I am not just fooling around
And I won't let you get me down.
 

So though the end, you're trying to bring
I ain't grievin', none of these things
Ain't retreatin' I'm a hero with wings
'Cos the game ain't over till the fat lady sings
 

IT AIN'T OVER TILL THE FAT LADY SINGS
Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

The City of Paragon (to the tune of house of the rising sun)


There is place in Cyber Space
They call it Paragon
And its been the home a many a hero
and Devs I know I'm one

My Mother was a tailor
she sewed my spandex tights
my father was a Freedom Fighter
down in Romero Heights

The only thing a Hero needs
is purpose and a drive
and the only time he's satisfied
is when citizens stay alive

Oh mother's tell your children
to go where I have gone
Spend your lives in armor and tights
In the city of Paragon

Well I got one foot in Preatoria
and the other in Earth Prime
I'll Defeat lord Recluse
and tyrant just in time

There is place in Cyber Space
They call it Paragon
And its been the home a many a hero
and Devs I know I'm one

Ever since the announcement I've had a song by the Finn Brothers in my head (Aussies and Kiwis will know who I'm talking about).  Won't Give In.

"What does it mean when you promise someone
That no matter how hard or whatever may come.
It means that I won't give in,
won't give in, won't give in
Cause everyone I love is here,
Say it once and disappear"

Just to bring a funny note here, but, it's not exactly since the Black Friday, or anything particular. It's more because I do impersonate parts of the character, but I picture the following months with this music on the background:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRBJYR1kSxY

or any flavor of boss music. But better take one that you do like, because it'll be a hell of a long boss battle ! ^^
Yeeessss....

Lots of great suggestions...

I personally like Not Dead Yet by Styx...
http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/s/styx/not_dead_yet.html

Maybe later tonight I'll do a rewrite.

This is actually the theme song of one of my alts, Serena Ravensong.  DB/WP tanker. She's hard to put down, and never stays down.

How could we forget this classic? (grin) Took me a while to find the recording I think I remember from my misspent youth... which technically is still in progress according to most people, but who's counting.
