Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has chosen Call of Duty: Black Ops II as the venue for his latest musical creation. Speaking to USA Today, Reznor revealed that he has written the theme song for Black Ops II, an "aggressively sounding" composition of guitar, bass, and drums-based rock.
Regarding his aim for the Black Ops II theme song, Reznor explained that the selection was deliberately designed to fit the form of the game's narrative.
"There is a lot of reservation and angst and sense of loss and regret and anger bubbling under the surface," he said. "So it didn't make sense to have a gung ho patriotic feeling kind of theme song. It has to feel weighty."
Reznor is a longtime gamer and is a fan of Activision's Call of Duty series.
