Electronic Arts today revealed the highly-anticipated list of bands that will be featured in Madden NFL 06. Characterized by the same intensity and high energy of the sport, the music in Madden NFL 06 brings together the hottest artists from hard rock and hip-hop.

“Every year, the release of Madden NFL Football is a major event for gamers and music fans alike,” said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Music Marketing at EA. “Some of today’s most important acts were first introduced through the game. This year’s in-game soundtrack features some amazing new tracks from artists that we believe will be next year’s hottest stars.”

The Madden NFL Football franchise is widely recognized as a driving force behind launching new music and this year is no different. In 2006, Madden NFL Football returns with an all-star line-up of multi-platinum bands and emerging acts. Up-and-coming bands such as Nine Black Alps, Avenged Sevenfold, Finch, Hot Hot Heat and Fall Out Boy join established acts such as The All-American Rejects, Disturbed, Godsmack and Foo Fighters. Also this year, some of the most promising new hip-hop artists will make appearances in the game, including Kanye West’s protegee Bump J, Spider Loc, who recently signed with 50 Cent, Sam Scarfo, who is the first act that Jay Z signed to DEF JAM, and Stat Quo, who was recently signed by Eminem. Even with all of these phenomenal songs, the crown jewel of the hip hop line-up is ‘Mind On The Road’ from Rev Run, who is most famous for bringing rap music to the world’s stage with Run D.M.C. in the mid-1980s. These songs will raise the temperature in football stadiums nationwide this season.
