Electronic Arts is coming out with a new game in its popular Madden football franchise, Madden NFL 11, and has just released the tracklisting for the game’s soundtrack, which contains a heaping dose of rock.
This time around, the game will focus on creating an in-stadium experience complete with hard rock favorites such as [lastfm]Ozzy Osbourne[/lastfm], [lastfm]AC/DC[/lastfm], [lastfm]KISS[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Guns N’ Roses[/lastfm]. For the past ten years, the franchise has showcased new artists and it is just now that they have decided to return to the classics.
Songs like KISS’ “Rock and Roll All Nite,” AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck,” “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns ‘N’ Roses and Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” will appear on the soundtrack.
“The term ‘Madden Music’ has come to mean music that matches the intensity of the video game,” says [lastfm]Steve Schnur[/lastfm], Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing for EA. “This year, we wanted the music to not only define the game, but also the stadium experience. These are the classics that consistently bring NFL crowds to their feet.”
Schnur goes on to say: “It’s an exciting new audio direction for Madden NFL, one that we know all fans will respond to. There is nothing like the experience of live football in a packed stadium, and the Madden NFL 11 soundtrack absolutely brings that excitement home.”
Madden NFL 11 is slated to drop on August 10 and will be available for several game systems.
