But First, The Meme’s Context

Very useful website says…

When the Doom Music Kicks In refers to a series of memes set to “The Only Thing They Fear Is You” and other progressive metal songs by composer Mick Gordon from the soundtracks of the 2020 video game Doom Eternal and the 2016 video game Doom.

The memes combine scenes of intense, sometimes humorous, fights with the music, imagining that its energetic nature invokes a desire to inflict violence.
