Mccain soundtrack

What was the music that McCain had playing as he walked off the stage after his concession speech on Tuesday night?

It sounded like it came from the soundtrack of an action movie. I must know what it is.

Best answer: It was the score to Crimson Tide.

That is remarkably fitting.

For those of you who don't know, Crimson Tide has Gene Hackman as a grizzled old war-hungry submarine captain versus Denzel Washington as his rebellious, young, black regulations-bucking first officer. It ends with Denzel winning.

I almost flagged Seppaku's first answer as a joke answer. But yes, Crimson Tide.

Yes, but that Hans Zimmer piece is used all over the place, it's in tons of movie trailers, for example.
