Fable III Revolution Commercial Song: The Black Angels – Young Man Dead [Bands + Brands]

by oz on October 27, 2010

I recently ran across this Fable III Revolution commercial song during an episode of Pawn Stars. It features the song “Young Man Dead” by The Black Angels. It’s coincidental since we just gave away tickets to their show at Metro tomorrow and they’re stopping in for a live studio session with us.

I’m not a much of a gamer these days, so I know nothing about Fable III Revolution. We’ve come a long way since Metroid. Congrats to The Black Angels for the spot.

Here are the lyrics heard in the commercial:

Run for the hills, pick up your feet and let’s go.
We did our jobs, pick up the speed now lets move.
The trees can’t grow without the sun in their eyes.
And we can’t live if we’re too afraid to die.
Hold on tight, yes hold on tight you’re too slow.

Congrats The Black Angels! That portion of the song was perfect for that spot! Keep moving forward! 😉

The song is great. I actually thought it was Bauhaus or Peter Murphy solo material.

Unrelated note: thanks for saying ‘coincidental’ and not ‘ironic’! Huge annoyance when people say the latter when they mean the former. Nice relief!

This isn’t their first foray into video game music, as this song appeared on the soundtrack to “Alan Wake,” released earlier this year.

For a second thought it sounded like joy division
