There are a lot of great 19th century war songs, I especially like Battle Hymn of the Republic and Die Wacht am Rhein   (The Watch on the Rhine)
Quote
Battle Hymn of the Republic

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His day is marching on.

I have read a fiery Gospel writ in burnished rows of steel;
“As ye deal with My contemners, so with you My grace shall deal”;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel,
Since God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Since God is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet;
Our God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free;
While God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! While God is marching on.
Quote
The Watch on the Rhine

The cry resounds like thunder's crash,
Like ringing swords and waves that clash:
The Rhine, the Rhine, go to our Rhine,
Who'll guard our River, hold the line?
|: Land of our fathers, have no fear, :|
|: Your watch is true, the line stands here. :|

2. A hundred thousand hearts beat fast,
The eyes of all to you are cast,
The German youth, devout and strong.
Protects you, as he has so long.
|: Land of our fathers, have no fear, :|
|: Your watch is true, the line stands here. :|

3. He casts his eyes to heaven's blue,
From where past heroes hold the view,
And swears pugnaciously the oath,
You Rhine and I, stay German, both.
|: Land of our fathers, have no fear, :|
|: Your watch is true, the line stands here. :|

4. While still remains one breath of life,
While still one fist can draw a knife,
One gun still fired with one hand,
No foe will stand on this Rhine sand.
|: Land of our fathers, have no fear, :|
|: Your watch is true, the line stands here. :|

5. Should my heart not survive this stand,
You'll never fall in foreign hand,
Much, as your waters without end,
Have we our heroes' blood to spend.
|: Land of our fathers, have no fear, :|
|: Your watch is true, the line stands here. :|

6. The oath resounds, on rolls the wave,
The banners fly in wind. We'll save
The Rhine, the Rhine, the German Rhine
Together we will hold the line.
|: Land of our fathers, have no fear, :|
|: Your watch is true, the line stands here. :|

7. So lead us with your tried command,
With trust in God, take sword in hand,
Hail Wilhelm! Down with all that brood!
Repay our shame with the foes blood!
|: Land of our fathers, have no fear, :|
|: Your watch is true, the line stands here

Gladiator OST - the song of the first battle ( against the german )

I know this was posted a long time ago, but I think that song is called "Am I Not Merciful" if anyone was wondering.

It is based off of a war movie but i don't think it would be good for battle-music.

I think a good metal song for a battle scene would be Megadeth's instrumental "Into the Lungs of Hell"

March of the Mountain King... Reminds me of a sneaky special ops attack.

Other than that they have been posted. Though you could try Mozart,  especially Bach.

It's actually entitled 'Lux Aeterna,' and it's not fair to bring it up in this thread. It's likely one of the greatest compositions of all time and should therefore be exempt from all comparison. ;)

Well you work to earn a living
 But on weekends comes the time
 You can do what ever turns you on
 Get out and clear your mind
 Me, I like football
 And there's a lot of things around
 But when you line 'em up together
 The footy wins hands down

 Up there cazaly, in there and fight
 Out there and at 'em, show 'em your might
 Up there cazaly, don't let 'em in
 Fly like an angel, you're out there to win

 Now there's a lot more things to football
 That really meets the eye
 There are days when you could give it up
 There are days when you could fly
 You either love or hate it
 Depending on the score
 But when your team run out or they kick a goal
 How's the mighty roar (hooray, hooray)

 Up there cazaly, in there and fight
 Out there and at 'em, show 'em your might
 Up there cazaly, don't let 'em in
 Fly like an angel, you're out there to win

 Up there cazaly, you're out there to win
 In there and at 'em, don't let 'em in
 Up there cazaly, show 'em you're high
 Fight like the devil, the crowds on your side

 Up there cazaly, in there and fight
 Out there and at 'em, show 'em you're might
 Up there cazaly, show 'em you're high
 Fight like the devil, the crowd's on your side
 The - crowd's - on - your - side...

Of course you can't go wrong with the Halo 2 soundtrack!

I lost the CD but at least I had it recorded on my computer...
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Yeah, LOTR has some good battle music. Halo Video Game series has some good stuff too. Star Wars music seems a little too.... overdone methinks.
