    Martial Arts related songs?

    I was just wondering what kind of influence martial arts had on the music world. Thus far I have a few songs in my mind that have martial arts as the theme:

    "Yoshimi battles the pink robots pt. 1" -The Flaming Lips
    "Kung fu fighting" -I forget
    "Eye of the Tiger" -Rocky theme song

    Anybody else?

    "Kung Fu Fighting" was by Carl Douglas -- his only hit.

    Also

    "Karate Man" -- Superfriendz (obscure indie tune, on March records)

    "Karate Joe" -- The Beach Boys (an early song)

    "The Ballad of Bruce Lee" and "Jeet Kune Do" -- Songs recored by Bruce's brother Robert circa 1974

    "Flash of the Blade" -- Iron Maiden (about Musashi Miyamoto, or so I was told)

    "Muhammad Ali -- Black Superman" -- Johnny Wakelin

    And, if you want to define things a little more loosely...

    "Street Fighting Man" -- The Rolling Stones
    "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" -- Elton John
    "The Sentinel" -- Judas Priest (knife-throwing)
    "Someone's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked in Tonight" -- Not sure who first recorded it, but it's probably the only song that both Fleetwood Mac (in their early years) and the punk band Youth Brigade have in common

    Also, Sirc. why's this in Bullshido? It belongs in General BS, doncha think?

    Jeru the Damaja and Afu-Ra made a few. Don't remember the names though, but I think Afu had some referens to takedowns and grappling in a verse.
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    "Step away," I hissed.

    There was also a another song from the same album (Power Slave) called "The Duellists" which I think deserves an honorable mention in this thread IMO.

    Then there's also:

    Kung Fu Ramone- Guitar Wolf (J-punk)

    Face to Face- Loudness (Yay! more J-rock goodness :guitar: )

    Ninja- Europe (Yes, the "Final Countdown" guys)

    Ninja Rap- Vanilla Ice (It's a song about ninjas so it counts doesn't it?)

    I asked this question once before in jest, and I'll ask it again now -- the final line in "Coward of the County" is "everyone considered him the coward of the county." This, after Tommy has beaten the Gatlin boys until they were no longer standing (unconscious? comatose? dead?).

    Is the line repeated at the end to indicate "boy, those townfolk sure were wrong, they thought Tommy was yellow but they won't think that anymore?" Or is it meant to indicate "everybody STILL thought Tommy was the coward of the county afterward, because his long history of passivity led to his wife being gang-raped?" Or does it mean something else altogether? Or is it simply a convenient way to end the song, repeating a key line to summarize a central point from the lyrics.

    Or should I just not worry about it, and focus on knowing when to hold 'em vs. fold 'em?
