This is sung to the tune "Battle Hymn of the Republic."

He was just a Sanctioned Psyker and he surely shook with fright,
He checked all of his equipment and made sure his kit was right,
He had to sit and listen to the awful dins of war,
He ain't gonna Warp no more!

Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die!
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die!
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna Warp no more!

"Now call upon the Empyrean," his officer had cried,
"I'm ready for my duty, sir," the Psyker did reply.
He stood to face the enemy, in peril
As ne'er before,
He ain't gonna Warp no more!

Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die!
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die!
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna Warp no more!

He reached out with his eldritch pow'r and called upon the Warp,
Imperiled he did grapple with the demons' hated corps,
His faltered and his soul was swept into the ragged maw,
He ain't gonna Warp no more!

Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die!
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die!
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna Warp no more!

And so it fell to him of which we owe our efforts to,
A shining great example who ensures our loyal due,
One shot from him and Psyker's head exploded into goo,
He ain't gonna Warp no more!

Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die!
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die!
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna Warp no more!

(This is something that I came up with a version of the battlecry of freedom it's a bit rough and could use some criticism)

Yes we’ll rally around the eagle, boys, we’ll rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of Imperium , We will rally from the battle, we’ll gather from the void, Shouting the battle cry of Imperium!

The Emperor forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the Aquila;
While we rally round the eagle, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of Imperium!

We are springing to the call with a million guardsmen more,
Shouting the battle cry of Imperium! And we’ll fill our vacant ranks of our brothers gone before, Shouting the battle cry of Imperium!

The Emperor forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the Aquila;
While we rally round the eagle, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of Imperium!

We will welcome to our numbers the loyal, true and brave,
Shouting the battle cry of Imperium!
And although he may be poor, he shall never be a heretic,
Shouting the battle cry of Imperium!

The Emperor forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the Aquila;
While we rally round the eagle, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of Imperium!

So we’re springing to the call from the Coreworlds and from the Rimworlds,
Shouting the battle cry of Imperium!
And we’ll hurl the heretic scum from the empire we love best,
Shouting the battle cry of Imperium!

The Emperor forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the Aquila;
While we rally round the eagle, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of Imperium!
"Ave Imperator!"

Well my favorite imperial guard song is still that one from the dawn of war 2: retribution soundtrack.
If you are seeing this I didn't die or anything I just figured that because of my unabillity to remain involved regularly for long periods of time I might as well not bother the rest of the forum.

Dunno if this deserves its own post or not, but the cult of personalities that the Imperium builds around its heroes leads me to wonder about the culture that each Regiment ultimately creates within its ranks. Some people will be exemplars of virtue, and some will be used as cautionary tales, the songs and rites specific to each providing additional lessons on "how to sojer, you frakking dummy."

I feel that Sly Marbo would be used as both.

*slap* "Watch what you're shooting at! If that was Sly Marbo out there, he would have killed us all!"

As I see Krieg, it has more in common with WWI Germany and Prussia than with Nazi Germany, I also don't think they are the Human version of Necrons, they are still human but posses a die-hard stoicism and basic acceptance of their death as a fact. (They also may be a bit anti-social and Socially Awkward so they don't speak much)
Well, where are the Prussian-themed songs you ask? Here we go!

This one is inspired by the Prussian Song "Fridericus Rex" about Frederick II "The Great"
feel free to correct mistakes
Sing along with music from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uIPG-UrANM

Imperator Rex, our divine liege and Lord,
He calls every Krieger to gather gun and sword!
[Twelve million regiments and a thousand rider corps
And every single Kriegsman has more than sixty shots!] X2

"You blighted men!" says his regal majesty,
“For your ancient treason, you’ll fight and die for me!”
[“For Cadia, they begrudge me and for Terra they do the same
As for every holy sector that bears my regal name.”] X2

The Heretics conspire, with Chaos they consult,
And the Foolish Traitors are uprising in revolt!
[The Orks have invaded, they are storming near and far
Let's show what fighting men the Krieg Guardsmen are!"] X2

"With holy faith and the Astra Militarum Might,
My loyal subjects are all ready for the fight!”
[With Blood, tanks, and thunder – The Victory we own,
Only in death there’s atonement, our destiny known!] X2

Don’t Cry my brothers, wipe away the tears
As we all are Kriegsmen and March without fears!
[Should one fall in battle -a thousand will take his place,
Las Volleys and Bayonets to the enemy they race!] X2

The Lasgun’s Bayonet makes a very tiny hole,
While the Bolter’s angry growl does shatter to the core!
[The Flamers’ cleansing breath –by Promethium is blessed,
And with Plasma guns, just to fire is faith’s test!] X2

Our cannons roar, they're a force that can contend
And a Kriegsmen loyalty, are faithful to the end!
[With millions of Guardsmen the Imperium does advance,
Strikes at our foes with a strength of righteous lance!] X2

The Tau pay their thralls with promises and lies
In the Imperium of man, the Duty pays its price!
[With Blood, tanks, and thunder – The Victory we own,
Our triumphs go before us so the Galaxy may know!"] X2

Imperator-Rex, the laurel wreath adorns
And every single Kriegsman his loyalty has sworn!
[Imperator-Rex, my Divine liege and lord,
We'll march to the death should you only give the word!] X2
