Madden has become well-known over the years for boosting the music careers of numerous, then unknown, artists. Bands like, Good Charlotte, Avenged Sevenfold, Seether, Franz Ferdinand, and OK Go have all vaulted to musical prominence after the Madden soundtrack included their first hits, but this year they are looking to give fans of the game a much more realistic, "game experience".
“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.”
Now, for the reason why I say, "Touchdowns Just Became Much More Fun".
In bringing this "experience of live football in a packed stadium" to gamers, Madden '11 is also going to include some authentic, team FIGHT SONGS!! One of my favorite things about the live experience at the Metrodome is the ritualistic singing of "Skol Vikings" after every score, and thanks to the creators of Madden, we will be treated to the best fight song in the NFL, in-game!!!
Team Fight Songs:
- Chicago Bears – Bear Down Chicago Bears
- Detroit Lions – Gridiron Heroes
- Green Bay Packers – Go Packers Go!
- Miami Dolphins – Miami Dolphins #1
- Minnesota Vikings – Skol Vikings
- Philadelphia Eagles – Fly Eagles Fly
- Washington Redskins – Hail to the Redskins
It's a small addition to the game that, at least to me, will make the playing experience that much better.
V-I-K-I-N-G-S!! Skol Vikings, Let's Go!!!!!
