When after all It was you and me Let me please introduce myself Im a man of wealth and taste And I laid traps for troubadours Who get killed before they reached bombay

@tellthetruthoryour Just shut up and listen to the song. So what if a game brought people here to this video and song. Who cares. Just chill crazy. And kudos to The Rolling Stones for this wonderful song.

I shake my head every month when someone says “I heard this song on Black Ops” Stop embarassing yourself by saying that. Where the FUCK have you been at that you never heard this classic song that is 25 years old?? Get your head out of that stupid country music, or stupid C-rap or stupid christian rock bullshit or whatever garbage radio station or ipod, or satellite music you have been listening to in bumfuck America or that cave you have been living in. Go out and search for Class Rock!

@temp967 TROLL

@denverfan97 good for u

@MNiTFTW this song was on that mission when your on the boat in the river and you had to shoot the buildings on the riverside, i love that mission for this reason.

I’ve heard this song before, now I’m listening to it again, who fucking cares when and where.

This song is about you, I and every one about. Did you do anything to stop the tragedies? Or help those in need? Did you stop the corruption? I doubt it. So embrace it. There is no devil or god. We are all and one and it is our decisions that decide to what degree of each we are.

@MNiTFTW yup

@dittmiss This song was in Black Ops?

WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO! WOO WOO!

@lakeloon1234 You clearly haven’t played the campaign. :P

Thumbs up if you weren’t brought here by Call of Duty: Black Ops.
