January 30, 2007 - The "Gimme Danger" teaser trailer for the upcoming Ubisoft release of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 features the music of legendary Frank Black, best known as the caterwauling frontman of The Pixies.
The song utilized in the trailer is "Gimme Danger," a seminal classic culled from the vaults. It was originally written and performed by Iggy Pop when he was a member of the ground breaking Michigan combo The Stooges (the band universally regarded as one of the major acts to lay the groundwork for the Punk Rock movement of the early '70s).
Frank Black teamed up with 3volution Productions to re-record the track exclusively for GRAW 2. Supposedly the raw energy of the track makes for a perfect match to the equally raw intensity of the game play. It also continues to expose the growing interaction between modern rock music and videogames.
