EA has unveiled an extensive list of (mostly) rock music for its NHL 11 soundtrack, with tracks from the likes of The Ramones, The Black Keys and Megadeth making up a sixteen-strong collection of tunes that will be blasted around the ice hockey arena.
Special kudos to the dev team for securing Europe's "The Final Countdown", which we're sure we've heard playing numerous times at hockey games. For the record, we've only been to see the Toronto Maple Leafs play the Colorado Avalanche, but hey, we still know a thing or two about the game of stick and puck with the netty net. Hit pucky puck into netty net with sticky stick, for a goalie goal.
"This year, it's all about authenticity," said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing for EA. "We talked to gamers and fans about what kind of music they wanted in this new edition, and they said they wanted the feel of a live NHL experience."
Here's the full list of tracks for NHL 11:
- In Whispers - "Here I Stand"
- Airbourne - "Bottom Of The Well"
