FUN FACTS ABOUT THIS SONG [Expand the Description to see!] :

• This is the original version— this song was released on October 6th, 2011. The Living Tombstone's remix was released on January 21st, 2012, making his later than mine by 3 months and 15 days. On 1/8/2015, Odyssey removed "(EuroChaos Mix)" from the title because it confused people into thinking that it was a remix of Tombstone's, an inaccuracy still rampant to this day, even amongst show staff.

• This song is 158 BPM. Tombstone's remix is 105 BPM, but he sped up the vocals to 210 BPM to make sure they didn't drag out too long. This is why his seems "faster", despite being 2/3 the speed of the original.

• The Living Tombstone has gone out of his way on several occasions to credit this song as the original— in the title, he calls his version "(Remix)"; in the video itself, he provides a linked annotation to the original; in the description, the original is the first link he has provided.

• There are other remixes of Discord than The Living Tombstone's. They are all quite fantastic and all worth hearing, even if it would take a long time to list them all here.

• This song went through several different versions before settling on this one— click here http://youtu.be/lDnNHRCfsyA to see the other versions I had in mind! (Video says it was published in 2013, but that's the date I made the video public, not the date it was published!)

• Posting things like "tihs not as gud az teh remicks lolol" or "teh remix is bettur" is scientifically demonstrated at nearly 100% accuracy to reflect vastly reduced intelligence, inability to communciate with others, and a karmic need to step barefoot on a Lego at least once per day.

[EDIT]: Looks like the upload stretched the album art from its original state(s). Sorry! I still like 'em.
Discord didn't have a theme song in Season 2. So I made one for him. I tried to make this one reflective of his characteristic sense of humor and cunning, with a dash of villainy for good measure (and the fact that he's, well, a villain).

Eurobeat-wise, it's much like late Time pieces (in fact, it borrows a great deal from "Speed Man" by Dave Simon), but jumps between a couple other genres in light of Discord's distaste for consistency. Which genres? You'll have to listen~ (or cheat by reading the tags, but where's the fun in that?)

I'm not a fan of puppeteers but I've a nagging fear
someone else is pulling at the strings
Something terrible is going down through the entire town
wreaking anarchy and all it brings

I can't sit idly, no, I can't move at all
I curse the name, the one behind it all...

Discord, I'm howlin' at the moon
And sleepin' in the middle of a summer afternoon
Discord, whatever did we do
To make you take our world away?

Discord, are we your prey alone,
Or are we just a stepping stone for taking back the throne?
Discord, we won't take it anymore
So take your tyranny away!

I'm fine with changing status quo, but not in letting go
Now the world is being torn apart
A terrible catastrophe played by your symphony,
what a terrifying work of art!

I know there's probably a lot of people who say "tombstones is better" but you're the reason it exists. You inspired him to make that remix. Your amazing song inspired an amazing remix. So whenever someone says "tombstones is better" remember that you're part of the reason it exists. You don't deserve all the hate on this fucking amazing song.

Nearly 5 years old and I still love this version more than Tombstone's remix. Eurobeat is such an unpopular genre, but it's one of my faves.

TLT's was good, but the original version captures a theme about Discord. The way the music blends in with the tone of the lyrics gives off that effect that Discord gives off. Changing themes, playful sounding music, and almost a creepy effect. I will forever and always stay with the original. Great job!

Hey folks, It's been 3 years and 10 days since the release of +The Living Tombstone 's remix of Discord. Almost every day since then there have been lots of comments like "Oh, Tombstone's is way better!" and "This one's not as good, it's slower..." Even if that kind of evaluation is generally based more on taste/opinion than any factual statements (though I will concede that Tomb's is generally better-polished), there's not much I can do to fight that. I get it, I really do. And there's not much I can do to fix it or change it, now. While Tomb's been one of the very best sports about it, it's been a bit of a drain to have this kind of unsupportive talk about one of my proudest works, on what's been nearly a daily basis. I really do work hard, when I do have time to work on music, to improve and make things sound more polished, more energetic, and more interesting; but there's not much I can do to grow as a musician with "Tombstone's is better" "yours is slower" "yours isn't as good". Speeding up Eurobeat? This song's already 158BPM compared to Tomb's 105BPM... I've released plenty of faster songs since then, upwards of 165BPM. (I also refuse to enter nightcore territory...!) For those of you who intend to post such a comment, please consider the good it may or mayn't do— it doesn't help Tomb, it doesn't help me, it doesn't really help anyone. Although I really need to follow my own advice and brush it off, it still kind of stings, even after this long. However, I don't mean to sound as if I don't see the praise and more insightful comments that have sprung up over the years. To those of you who have encouraged me or pointed out ways that I actually CAN grow— or, in some cases, called me out on some of the less savory responses/things I've said about this song and the remix— I thank you immensely. Regardless of what people think of this version compared to its remixes, I'm still extremely proud of Discord as a song, a big part of which is due to the general reaction people have had to it (that it made their day better, more interesting, or more fun somehow), and the fact that it's had that effect on so many people! Though I do feel I've worked hard on my own, I can't help but feel a little lucky for this much, and your input has helped me grow in the way I have so far. I have some of the very best fans in the world, I really do believe that. I may not have as many as Tombstone or BlackGryphon or Mic the Microphone or Andromulus, but what I do have in you all is quality— so many of you reach out with praise, with positivity and encouragement, even telling me about how the song has helped you in one way or another— that I'm genuinely blessed to have your support, and hope to continue to create works that please and entertain you just as much as this, if not even more so. Sorry for rambling! I needed an 'old man rant' moment there, and I think this more than says my peace on the matter. I harbor no ill will towards Tombstone— hell, we'll be performing at Japan Ponycon later this year, which is gonna be awesome! Please look forward to both of our works as we continue to grow.
