Military production music is the musical equivalent of popcorn, the kind of thing that gets eaten in a hurry.
It is a genre that is so prevalent in the military that it can even be found in military-related memes and videos on YouTube, according to a new report.
The Military Music Project, which was created by veteran production artist James Smith, says it tracks “the most famous military music production credits,” and it identifies a total of 2,500 songs in the “top 100 military production credits.”
Smith told Breitbart News the music in the top 100 is made by: “The Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard, Coast and Air Force and the Army National Guard.
This includes some popular American and Japanese pop and metal songs such as the hit, “Popcorn,” by Kami Bando and other artists.
The list goes on, and there are many other songs and artists that we don’t know about, such as bands like the band The Redwoods, which is a fusion of American and Indian rock and country music.
We have included music from many different genres including pop, country, jazz, bluegrass, rock and roll, folk, folk-rock, classical, blues, R&b, Latin, jazz-fusion, jazz fusion, hip-hop, country fusion, classical fusion, Latin fusion, rap, hip hop, country-futurism, alternative rock, and rock-punk.”
Smith also identified music by the US Army National Guardsmen, the Air Force Reserve, the Navy and Coast Guard.
