Camo based on music!

With music video collabs like the Bismarck one by Sabaton, along with various other music videos commissioned by naval recruitment offices, I think it'd be a good idea to make some camo based on said music.

A couple of good ones would be Van Halen's "Dreams" and Top Gun's Danger Zone for carriers (with the Dreams camo featuring the blue and gold of the US Navy Blue Angels, and Top Gun camo featuring Maverick's helmet). Another good one would be Motley Crue's "Kickstart my Heart".

For heavy cruisers or battleships you could use "In the Navy" by the Village People, and for Destroyers, use "Sea Cruise".

Music samples, starting with carriers.

Here's Van Halen's 1986 classic US Navy music video, "Dreams" starring the Blue Angels:

And here's everyone's favorite song from the 1986 cult-classic carrier aviation movie, TOP GUN:

And here's Kickstart my Heart, once again featuring the Blue Angels:

 

Next, in the large-bore gunnery category (battleships and heavy cruisers), here's "In the Navy" by The Village People:

And finally for destroyers and submarines, here's "Sea Cruise" (Original artist Frankie Ford, which is a little dated. My favorite rendition is by the Kidsongs Kids, seen here performed onboard a US Coast Guard cutter):

 

Like with the Transformers and other collabs you could even have these songs play instead of the standard in-game music.

Having the actual songs play would involve all sorts of very expensive livensing rights.

Fair point. However, another thread was posted that also suggested a Van Halen camo (that thread is unrelated to this one, other than inspiring it) as a tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen with proceeds going towards cancer research.

If that happens I don't think his estate would mind if Wargaming borrowed the song as part of the tribute, assuming Wargaming asks nicely.

The others may be a bit more of a problem, especially Danger Zone with it being remastered as part of Faltemeyer's(sp?) soundtrack for the Top Gun sequel, Top Gun: Maverick.

That being said, while I don't know about the Village People, the original author of Sea Cruise, Frankie Ford, is likely dead (w/ no estate that I've heard of) so that song may be public domain.
