Composer Bobby Prince

Title Origin Official

Nobody Told Me About id is the song from Doom composed by Bobby Prince. The song is apparently play-on-words: the name, id, references the company which developed Doom, id Software, and the phrase "Nobody told me about it".

Bobby Prince used Sequencer Plus Gold to compose this track.

The song starts out with tricking its listeners into thinking the song is a 12/8 ballad. However, the notes playing are just triplets. The song later goes to a straight beat. The chord structures are Am Dm (on A) G#+, then Cm Fm (on C) B+.
