In past years, the Madden franchise featured a soundtrack with new music that appealed to the youthful demographic to which the exclusive NFL video game appeals.
This year, Electronic Arts will focus on replicating the in-stadium experience.
The full soundtrack appears at the EA website. Original songs appearing on the game include AC/DC’s Thunderstruck, Welcome to the Jungle by Guns ‘N’ Roses, Let It Rock from Kevin Rudoff, the Kiss classic Rock and Rock All Nite, and Ozzy Osbourne’s Crazy Train.
The game also includes covers of Rock ‘N’ Roll Part 2 and We Will Rock You.
For the first time, team-specific songs will appear in the game, including Bear Down Chicago Bears, Go Packers Go!, Skol Vikings, and Fly Eagles Fly.
Meanwhile, Florio Jr. continues to pester the hell out of me to demonstrate my modest sports industry juice by scoring for him an advance copy of the game. EA, Drew Brees, can you help me get Florio Jr. off my back?
