Who decides the music for the game?

I know that Madden has had some songs that have ended up on the radio, but for the most part I really haven't liked a lot of the music that is picked for the game. It always seems rock-heavy. That's not really the music I prefer and I'd guess a lot of the Madden crowd. Is this years sound track going to be more balanced to give everyone a taste of their taste?

P.S. I promised not to mention my favorite game , but they seem to have a real diverse soundtrack with every type of music represented.

NFL Films soundtrack is perfect, imo. Could do without anything else.

Re: Who decides the music for the game?

I remember watching something on MTV a few years back in which they showed this guy who actually goes out and searches for new music that would fit madden well. But yeah the recent madden soundtracks haven't been too diverse. The last real good one was Madden 04 (a big reason for it is due to its diversity).

Anyways, I have made predictions on who will be on the soundtrack for madden for the past four years and I have gotten at least 2 artists/songs right each year. My sig has my madden 10 soundtrack predictions. I made them based on if the songs are new releases or if they are by new artists and also if their music sounds like something that's suitable for a madden game. So yeah, will see how my predictions go once they reveal the soundtrack

I'd love to have that only and be able to do custom soundtracks. Using Madden to showcase unknowns can get old. I wouldn't mind so much if it wasn't so much rock. I'd prefer dance/stadium style music. Even some hip-hop, just mix it up. IMO Madden has some of the worst videogame music. Shoot, license the ESPN Stadium soundtracks with all the "stadium" songs. Something just more football....

P.S. The song on the vid is crap...

Yeah I don't like Airborne at all.

What's funny is that this will be their 3rd straight year having a song in Madden.

Agreed. I think they need to mix it up a lot more.

Agreed! On PS2 I turned off all the songs except for the NFL Films stuff... could you do that on PS3? Not sure if I ever looked for it.... I just muted it all...

Really no matter how good the music is it will always get pretty old after a while. As long as we have the option to customize the play list then I'm cool.

I think thats one reason why the trailer sucked so much, it didnt give off a NFL vibe at all.

NCAAs however had band music, shots of cheerleaders and it really gave off a college football vibe.
