From what I understand, Chaotic Neutral can include anything from a friendly bounty hunter to a completely, utterly, insane psychopath. I actually play most Bioware games (with the exception of Dragon Age 2 where I hunted filthy blood mages) in this alignment. Some days I’ll throw some mook out a window. Other days I’ll heal a sick alien that would otherwise hate humans. There’s no rhyme or reason why I do the things I do in the Mass Effect world with zero thought going into the consequences of my actions. Unless it has to do with Garrus or Mordin.
Musically, this leaves me a lot of options. It means I get to find songs that are unpredictable, a little strange and perhaps even a bit dangerous.
Honestly, the first song that came to mind was “Safety Dance”. A song about dancing if you want to and leaving friends behind verges on Chaotic Stupid, but I love it anyway. And, even though I was a bit critical of Asteroids Galaxy Tour the last time I’ve mentioned their stuff, I think this cover is fucking spot on. Her voice is weird, but the song is WEIRDER, so it works.
I’ve had arguments about the alignment of the Cowboy Bebop crew, but I think they all occasionally fall in that Chaotic Neutral territory. The theme song, “TANK!” is a really beautiful example of what I think Chaotic Neutral music could sound like. So, if you don’t mind, I’d like to go old school with this next song. This is Don Ellis with the single version of “Indian Lady”.
Finally, we have the song “Sunshine, Pretty Girls” by the Unnatural Helpers. It’s a punk song about not giving a shit and letting that be the doorway to freedom. It’s messy, a little drunk and got that carefree sound that reminds me of Chaotic Neutral. It’s also a very short song, but I imagine the Chaotic Neutral characters that go off the deep end don’t last very long either.
