Very nice list. But no panthers fight songs. Man that is a bummer. But thanks for posting bro.

Nothin like a little Todd Rundgren after a Packers TD! This really adds to the presentation IMHO.

What about the Super Chargers? They said in the interview earlier in the year that it was in the game too. Very nice list of songs though.
# 5 Dog @ 07/26/10 11:05 AM
im so pumped for this game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
# 6 marcoyk @ 07/26/10 11:18 AM
I like the idea about the music being stadium, hype-up music. But I also kind of miss the days of the newest music being in Madden. I miss hearing music that got famous later in the year, first in Madden. But I'm glad to see:

this is a little off topic but that saints player in the screen shot has ALOT of accessories
# 8 tbranan @ 07/26/10 11:31 AM
Awesome news about the old school rock. Can't wait to hear crazy train and thunderstruck. Kinda sad that there is no "When the Saints Go Marching In" but, overall, good job.
# 9 MUCHLUV69 @ 07/26/10 11:50 AM
Hopefully you can add custom music tracks
. for each time I score with the Buffalo Bills I want to hear the "Bills make me want to shout" song
# 10 DJ @ 07/26/10 12:14 PM
Why isn't AC/DC's "Hell's Bells" in the game? I know the Giants use it before opening kickoff and I've heard it at several other stadiums, too.
# 11 mestevo @ 07/26/10 12:19 PM
Man, that's a really nice list of songs.
# 12 bigsmallwood @ 07/26/10 12:34 PM
Hail to the Redskins!
# 13 jvaccaro @ 07/26/10 12:36 PM
this is sooooo much better than past soundtracks

yeah, I get it... Madden had made a lot of pop and rap artists famous, etc... I just never liked that music, especially in a football video game. it never seemed to fit, and totally broke any immersion factor. Ultimately I would just turn off most of the songs and listen to the classic NFL tracks.

either way, this year the audio should be much better, IMO. even if I'm still not crazy about all these songs, they are appropriate to the stadium experience.

I'm glad they went in this direction. I like the choice of songs.
# 16 Marino @ 07/26/10 01:54 PM
I'm so glad the Dolphins fight song made it in, hopefully it's not that crappy T-Pain version.
# 17 Chrisksaint @ 07/26/10 02:05 PM
Hard to complain about the songs list but really the Miami dolphins fight song is prolly the worst i've ever heard no offense to any phins fans.

Halftime by Ying Yang twins is pretty much a saints song tho, was prolly played almost nonstop last year during home games.
# 18 RedZoneD25 @ 07/26/10 02:18 PM
Would have been cool to see Kickstart My Heart by Motley Crue in the game...It's played all the time at Lincoln Financial Field and other teams I'm sure too. Also somewhat surprised by the lack of Van Halen's "Jump".
# 19 canes21 @ 07/26/10 02:44 PM
Good list and all, awesome they have HTTR. But we really need Custom Stadium Sounds that work. I love the feature in NCAA even if it is broken and limited. Before every road game I take the time to set up a playlist for the team I am traveling to play against.
# 20 SteelBurgher @ 07/26/10 02:53 PM
Wow between this and the new SB Celebrations, I don't know what has me more hyped about M11. I just hope they dont miss the simple crowd chants like DEFENSE! DEFENCE! (the ones they did in NCAA 11 were perfect. The whole stadium shakes and the chant is really loud. Does anyone know if this is making its way into M11?) Im a little disapointed that the HERE WE GO STEELERS, HE WE GO chant isnt in the game and also Renegade by Styx (all real Steelers fans know ALL about that) But at least the HEATHHHHHH chant is incuded in M11. Theres always next year for the Steelers chant and Renegade, Im also gonna be hoping for the crowd waving terrible towels, a sea of them just like in real life (everything you see on Sunday?) anyway game looks great, cant wait
