Forgive me I used to know the name of the piece thats played it was in Triumph of the Will and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Seeing how the brownshirts/stormtroopers were goose stepping to it I was wondering how this is politically correct. I like the music but I like the Badensweiler better. (only problem is its also in triumph of the will and instead of stormtroopers goose stepping its the 1st SS Adolf Hitler Division- the most zealous and fervent Nazis of them all, again highly politically incorrect) A side note- the British have played the march along with eh Chilean Military so maybe its not as stigmatized as I had initially estimated. We could play it safe and use Panzer Lied?
The song is [SIZE=-1]"Der Koniggratzer" by Gottfried Piefke. It was a German victory march composed in the 19th century to commemorate a German war victory at the time, so I don't think it's a Nazi march. Personally it's a song that's been stuck in my head since I saw Last Crusade as a kid and I pretty much had a heart attack when I first heard it on FH2. [/SIZE]
I thought they used the music from the Indiana Jones movie! (Oh, they did!)
i uploaded all the different performances i have in my collection for you.

The march became so symbolic of German and especially Prussian armies that in Austria to this day Piefke is a pejorative term for German.
If you get offended by a german WW2 I wouldn't like to see it when you turn on the TV and hear the crap that is like 20x worse there. Just MO though, whateva.
How about the Badenweiler are there youtube clips that have it? other than the 1930s ones?
The "Königgrätzer Marsch" is a prussian victory march witch was composed to remember the victory of the prussian army over the army of austria on the 3rd july 1866 near Königgrätz (today Hradec Králové, czech republic).
