Private Mendoza: "Why do we always have to listen to this old stuff, Sarge?"
Staff Sergeant Johnson: "Watch your mouth, son. This "stuff" is your history. It should remind you grunts what we're fightin' to protect!"
Private Mendoza: "Hey, if the Covenant want to wipe out this particular part of my history, that's fine by me."
Private Bisenti: "Yeah, better it than us."

Flip music is a genre of music created and performed by humans.


The "slam-bam" beat[1] of flip music is descended from 21st century heavy metal.[2] By the 2520s, flip music was popular at dance clubs, which are common destinations for Marines and Orbital Drop Shock Troopers on leave.[3] Avery Johnson had an odd fascination with the genre.[1][4] Many people dislike flip music, including Captain Jacob Keyes, SPARTAN John-117,[2] Corporal Locklear,[2] Private First Class Wallace Jenkins, and Privates Riley, Mendoza, and Bisenti.


The flip music heard in the "Jenkins' helmet cam" cinematic is a song called "Shreddin'".[5] This song was created for Halo: Combat Evolved, although it is not present on the retail soundtrack. It was later released as a free download on Bungie.net.
