Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Live Action Launch Trailer – What’s the Song?

Anticipation for the forthcoming ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ video game just got even higher, if such a thing is possible. A new trailer for the game, which will be released Nov. 13, uses AC/DC‘s classic song ‘Back in Black.’

The live-action clip was directed by British film director Guy Ritchie (‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,’ ‘Snatch,’ ), the man to blame for Madonna‘s fake British accent due to their marriage from 2000-2008. Robert Downey, Jr., who has worked with Ritchie in the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ franchise reboot, makes an appearance. In a nod to his ‘Iron Man’ character, he appears in a fighter plane saying, “Guess who brought a jet to a gun fight?”

The distinctive, unmistakable riff from ‘Back in Black’ was recently named by Gibson guitars as the Top Riff of the ’80s. The entire song came in at No. 4 on our list of the Top 100 Classic Rock Songs.

This is the second time AC/DC’s music has been used in a commercial for the ‘Call of Duty’ franchise. Last year, ‘Shoot to Thrill‘ was the theme for the trailer to ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.’
