Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundren first enlisted as Universal Soldiers in 1992. The Roland Emmerich flick even came complete with a theme song that best summed up the two words the violent sci-fi action movie was all about: body count.

Around the same time as Universal Soldier was opening in theaters, Ice-t was crossing over from hardcore rap to hard rocking rap with his metal band Body Count. The band had already become infamous for their highly controversial single “Cop Killer” when the producers of Universal Soldier tapped Body Count for a single to use in their movie, a rap metal anthem whose sole lyrics consist of repeatedly yelling “body count” and “body count’s in the house”. Yeah, well, Universal Soldier wasn’t exactly known for its highly literate screenplay either.
