"Power of the Horde" is the debut song by Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain, released with Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne on July 1, 2003, where it is featured during the expansion's credits. The song "appears" on the band's fictional 2003 album, also titled Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. A BlizzCon 2005 announcement jokingly asserts the song a "multimillion-selling" single, and the fictional album it derived from as best remembered for the "popular little computer game" that was included with it as a bonus feature, while these "facts" were quite the opposite in reality (the song itself included as a bonus to the highly popular Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos expansion).


"Power of the Horde"

Storm, earth, and fire! Heed my call!

I am the son of the wind and rain,
Thunder beckons and I heed the call
If I die upon this day,
In battle I will fall

Hear me brothers gather up the wolves, <howl>
To battle, we will ride
Wardrums echo the beating heart,
Pounding from inside

Black clouds fill the sky
I hear my battle cry
Thunder we'll bring forth...
From the power of the horde...

Far Seer to the Warsong Clan,
To no man will I kneel
Feel the power and the energy,
For the black blood, honor, and steel

I feel the fire burning in my veins,
Lightning strikes at my command
By storm and earth, axe and fire,
We come to claim this land


<-guitar solo->


Surrounded by the enemy,
The wolf among the hounds
Thunder turns to silence,
It took the hundred to bring me down

War brothers falling at my side,
With honor I will die!
Upon the Altar of the Storms,
I will be reborn

Black clouds fill the sky
I hear my battle cry
Thunder we'll bring forth...
For I have been reborn!

STORM! <thunder crackles>
EARTH! <an earthquake is heard>
FIRE! <faint fire sound>
DEATH! <death sound>
The power of the horde!

In-game availability

"Power of the Horde" can be heard in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne's credits, or by playing it in the Warcraft III World Editor's sound manager, where can be found as "PH1.mp3," or by entering "TenthLevelTaurenChieftain" in the chat box, enabling a cheat which plays the song. This cheat can be used in both Warcraft III's Reign of Chaos mode and The Frozen Throne mode, but will only play in the former mode if the expansion set has been installed.

With Patch 2.1.2, the song was included in World of Warcraft World of Warcraft, as well. It can be heard in the game by entering "/script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Music\\ZoneMusic\\DMF_L70ETC01.mp3")" in the chat box. The filename "DMF_L70ETC01.mp3" was the first indication of the band's name change, from "Level 60" to "Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain", keeping their Tauren Chieftain up to date as the highest level obtainable in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade The Burning Crusade; the prefix "DMF" refers to the Darkmoon Faire, the band's new location near Shattrath City. Since Wrath of the Lich King it's called "Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftains". (However, as of the 3.2.2 PTR, the filename is still DMF_L70ETC01.mp3, in the same location)

If you have Direbrew's Remote, you can take it to the Grim Guzzler, talk to the roadies on the lower level to bring the band in for a "Practice Session" to hear the song. It also plays nightly at 8pm server time.
