He was listening to Saul Williams and referenced Guns n' Roses. That should be enough to cement him as my second-favorite character.

Badass all the way.

That is a remix, and oh my god that sounds odd... Scott would've shot the radio if that was playing.
Here is the original version, Greer was playing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXzK0AFpmcI)

Like that's going to stop them from asking.

A pity; you Aussies have a big industrial audience. I guess you're not part of it.

Why is it that I have the Urge to make a " Master Sergeant Greer Facts" thread...

"Greer is so tough, when he does pushups, he is not pushing himself up, he is pushing the Destiny down"

" Master Sergeant Greer does not, in fact, sleep....he WAITS..."

Master Sergeant Greer does not " Go hunting", he "Goes KILLING"

"Greer is so tough he gave Wilford Brimley the Diabetes"

Etc.

As long as you don't just re-use all the chuck-isms that might be a very entertaining thread.

I think it's just another example of the writers really delving deep into the characters. The music Greer listens to helps define his character and even opens up more questions about his past and life.

I look forward to learning more about Greer.

I saw some faint musical resemblance... But not much. ^That's about all I heard too. It wasn't even that loud, and as soon as I heard it, I'm just like "shut it off. shut it off!". Yeah, I'm not sure why I talk in lower case, yet type in upper case, either.

Although, I will give that it was 10x better than the music at the club during Earth.

All this is pointing me towards Greer being one of those square jawed " Jesus fire" marines. Absolutely fearless and scary as hell. I love those guys!

Yeah, if they do start playing more and more contemporary songs, I hope they start making them a bit more mainstream. Not like Miley Cyrus/Brittany Spears mainstream (HECK NO!), but something awesome.. I wonder if they could fit Coldplay in somehow...

Besides, it's a rule - either use indie music or classic rock, otherwise the TV Gods shall strike you down.

that song at the end of air was more jazz/blues/R&B and sounded pretty good...

Holy crap. Guns and Roses. SGU is sketchy enough. I wouldn't feel right about it being associated with Axle Rose. JK. They did have some pretty kewl songs back in thu day.

Welcome to the Jungle might have appropriate for the Time episode.

I wouldn't mind Coldplay in SGU, actually. I rather like them, no matter what my enjoyment of the 'screeching cats' Greer was listening to might lead you to assume. I can think of a few songs by them that might have been appropriate at the end of 'Air'.

Ultimately, I'd have been happier if contemporary music stayed the heck out of the franchise. But now that that door has been opened, I might as well hope for the best. Janelle Monae (I'm sure to be spelling that wrong; don't really care) didn't do it for me. That music was driving me insane. Not my cup of tea.

If that happened I'd lose my will to live.

Dang, we got some definite Coldplay haters in here... Glad I'm not alone Jeff. :cool:

Like I said, I wasn't sure how they'd put that in, but it would be cool if they could do it without it sounding completely out of place. I can't think of any of the crew that might like Coldplay though. Possibly Eli?
