Bodies Hit The Floor in Drowning Pool’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Music Video

From Machinima’s new Music Video Series, which kicked off earlier this month with a Borderlands video featuring The Crystal Method, comes this explosive Call of Duty: Black Ops montage set to “Children of the Gun,” a track from metal band Drowning Pool’s eponymous fourth album from last year. Machinima director iDuel2010 created the music video, saying this about working on the project:

“The idea of showcasing big name artists on YouTube through machinima is a huge step forward for music and gaming. I hope this project shows other artists that showcasing their music through machinima music videos is a huge promotional tool and an original way to reach a whole new audience!”

What do you think of the growing convergence between gaming and music? We’ve already seen major game publishers use music videos for promotional purposes, like EA did with its collaboration with Linkin Park to hype the release of Medal of Honor, and more and more game trailers are tapping popular artists for background music. Do you want to see more bands / musicians lend their songs to video games? Should publishers and developers use music videos like this more often?
