Electronic Arts unveiled the full soundtracks for Madden NFL 10, FIFA 10, NHL 10 and NBA LIVE 10, representing the sounds of this fall's four sports franchises and affirms EA's standing as the leaders in worldwide videogame music and marketing.

"Each EA SPORTS game is unique to every gamer that picks up the controller, we wanted to make sure the music matched each of those unique experiences," said Steve Schnur, Electronic Arts' Worldwide Executive for Music and Marketing. "With the big songs and huge bands in Madden NFL, bringing back the Soul of the Game to NBA LIVE, tapping into the hard hitting metal tracks of NHL and the international flavor of FIFA, this year's EA SPORTS soundtrack line up aligns with each of the game's unique styles."


Since 2001, the annual Madden NFL soundtrack has become music's most essential launching pad for such artists as Avenged Sevenfold, Franz Ferdinand, Lupe Fiasco and Fallout Boy. This year, Madden NFL 10 makes the ultimate surprise play with a front-line of classics that includes Black Sabbath, 2Pac, Iron Maiden, Kid Rock, Nirvana, Public Enemy, System Of A Down and Rage Against The Machine; tracks by breakout bands Airbourne, Mastodon, and Killswitch Engage; and an exclusive new song by Cypress Hill.
