Madden 11 soundtrack to feature classics, fight songs

After years of featuring music by new bands in its hit Madden franchise, EA Sports is going in a different direction with the soundtrack for Madden NFL 11.

This year’s game will feature stadium classics and — for the first time — team fight songs.

“The term ‘Madden Music’ has come to mean music that matches the intensity of the video game,” says Steve Schnur, worldwide executive of music and marketing for EA said in a statement. “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. 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.”
