Yeah if you didn’t see my rant on the over hyping of the Madden soundtrack (and series in general) then you will know that I wasn’t very happy (obviously, that’s why it was a rant!) about all the talking up the soundtrack got and get’s every year.

Well it has been confirmed that the soundtrack for Madden NFL 09 will be appearing, in small doses each week, as Rock Band Downloadable content. Now this is a good and a bad thing. The good part is that there will be some new and pretty cool songs available for download in Rock Band. The bad part of this is that it looks like EA might start to farm out all sorts of shit from their soundtracks into Rock Band and stop better stuff coming out.

I’m all for new content but if EA does the latter I for one won’t be too impressed (unless they start getting some kickass songs in their soundtracks!).

This quote comees from Reuters:

Under the deal, “Rock Band” will feature music from the “Madden 09” soundtrack in its weekly downloadable songs update, a handful at a time, over several weeks, with each song carrying the “Madden” brand. Additionally, each soundtrack song will be available for sale via iTunes as part of a special “Madden” playlist.

For those who missed it (or didn’t click to link to the rant post) here’s the tracklist again:

Airbourne – Stand Up For Rock ‘N Roll
Busta Rhymes feat. Linkin Park – We Made It
Disturbed – Inside The Fire
Franz Ferdinand – Lucid Dreams
From First To Last – Worlds Away
Gym Class Heroes – I’m Home
Hollywood Undead – Undead
In Flames – The Mirror’s Truth
Innerpartysystem – Don’t Stop
Izza Kizza – Millionaire
Kardinal Offishall feat. Lindo P – Burnt
Kidz In The Hall – Blackout
KOVAS – Wax On, Wax Off
Mindless Self Indulgence – Never Wanted To Dance
Rev Theory – Hell Yeah
Senses Fail – Wolves At The Door
Shinedown – Devour
The All-American Rejects – The Real World (Demo)
The Fashion – Like Knives
The Offspring – Hammerhead
Trivium – Into The Mouth Of…We March
Tyga – Diamond Life
Underoath – Desperate Times, Desperate Measures
Wale feat. Southeast Slim – Breakdown
Young Dre The Truth feat. Good Charlotte – Workin’

Some of this is cool and some of it is a bit meh. The Franz Ferdinand track could be cool and i’d actually quite like to see how the Busta Rhymes & Linkin Park track works because that’s a cool song and obviously not much of a rock song (rap in Rock Band?). I can see it turning out quite well for fans especially if they put them up at $0.99.

I personally think i’ll be downloading the Franz Ferdinand and Busta Rhymes tracks first but will check out the others in the Rock Band in-game store.
