I personally think Warriors Of The World United by Manowar would be best. The whole song goes:

Here I see you stand from all around the world
Waiting in a line to hear the battle cry
All are gathered here, victory is near
The sound will fill the hall, bringing power to us all


We alone are fighting for metal that is true
We own the right to live the fight, we're here for all of you
Now swear the blood upon your steel will never dry
Stand and fight together beneath the battle sky

[Chorus:]
Brothers everywhere - raise your hands into the air
We're warriors, warriors of the world
Like thunder from the sky - sworn to fight and die
We're warriors, warriors of the world

Many stand against us, but they will never win
We said we would return and here we are again
To bring them all destruction, suffering and pain
We are the hammer of the gods, we are thunder, wind and rain.

There they wait in fear with swords in feeble hands
With dreams to be a king, first one should be a man
I call about and charge them all with a life that is a lie
And in their final hour they shall confess before they die

[Repeat chorus]

If I should fall in battle, my brothers who fight by my side
Gather my horse and weapons, tell my family how I died
Until then I will be strong, I will fight for all that is real
All who stand in my way will die by steel

Brothers everywhere - raise your hands into the air
We're warriors, warriors of the world


Execpt for the fighting for metal that is true, the song is actually pretty damn good for an XCOM theme.

Not bad..how about Megadeth's "HANGAR 18"? Agent Steel "Agents Of Steel" or "Taken By Force"?

I take slightly darker approach.


Bathory - Death From Above


Wright Cyclone thunder coming closer mid day time
From thirty thousand feet the 452 Group in clear sky
Beholds the city laid out like a carpet drown below
Still the fires from last nights attack among the rubble glows

Black puffs the anti-aircraft guns has come alive
As the mighty eight approaches high up in the sky

Death From Above

From the bellies of the flying fortresses in olive drab
Hells fire pouring down upon the earth
Incendiary high explosives falling through the sky
To detonate at ground level to enflame to kill to burn

Bombs away heading west 452 Group returns to base
All land below engulfed in smoke the city is ablaze

Death From Above

Again at night the roar of engines in the dark above
The Merlin rumble now 514 Sqadron has arrived
With bellies full of daeth and bomb doors open wide
To destroy what 542 Group may have left behind

The pathfinders unloads a colour full veil glow so bright
And the rubble city down below burn throughout the night

Death From Above

MaaZeus - excellent!

FenderStrat, Hanger 18 ONLY if it is followed immedietly by Return To Hanger(to signify the switch between UFO and Terror From The Deep) as the UFO tech was discontinued after the original title ;)
