The "Fun" starts at about 0:22.

Kinda OT, I know... but I just happened to have come across this in my playlist, and anytime this starts playing, I always imagine myself about to do something incredibly badass and nothing can touch me.

As it says in the Title, it is from Saints' Row: The Third, in a "Blink-and-miss-it" scene where you jump out of an airplane at the beginning of the game. It is the only place in the game this theme plays as you are diving to catch your friend, while simultaneously engaging in a shootout with pursuers.

I'd have to say it is one of The most epic beginnings of a video game I've ever played and this song always makes me feel like a badass on a mission.

Lol, your not alone I totally know the feeling. I get that same "bad ***" feeling when I play Grand Theft Auto. When you have jsut stolen a car and you cahnge the radio staion to your liking and are just crusing around on mission to no where. Easily one of the best feeling of the game.

Wow, what a necro. lol.

While some radio station songs are awesome in these games, I think what really set the mood behind that tune I linked above, is the context behind it (the music itself really helps).

You and your friend jump out of an airplane after some evil mafia gang tries to kill you. You have a paracute, your friend doesn't. You didn't get enough time to get her one, you kinda got thrown out of the back of the plane (it's complicated).

On the way down, these gang members with machineguns are trying to kill you, so you have to kill them, BUT, your friend is still falling and you gotta catch her before she splats. Oh, and... all the cargo the plane was holding is falling too. While you're trying to speed dive down to her, you have to dodge all the crap in the air (which hurts and slows you down if you get hit).

Kill those guys, catch your friend and it is like "whew". Oh wait. Crap. The airplane has circled around and is now trying to ram the two of you. So you throw your friend off to the side (who still doesn't have a parachute and she's quite angry about this), use your gun to shoot out the cockpit window of the plane, while slipping the parachute off, flying through the plane, and grabbing this dude on your way through to steal his parachute (that hasn't been deployed yet).

THEN, after all gotta dive to catch your friend again, and MORE gang members are trying to kill you. Again.

That has to be one of the most awesome scripted scenes in a video game I've played to date.
