That's not it?

*listens to video* ...Eww, no. =/

SnuggleBandit2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

Whoops, didnt mean to edit my comment

Anyways, people all i am saying is that i like both MUSE and MCR, how can you say im dead wrong for liking one band more than the other?

Music is a personal preference and is subjective

They are both amazing bands....

-Alpha2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

I never meant to say MCR is generic pop, I was referring to that other song that they've used:

This one isn't too bad, but it's not something I'd expect to hear for GT5. I generally don't care for the music, so long as I can play my own I wouldn't mind, but MCR is a questionable choice. Like I said below, I don't know how often music is used in-game for racing sims but it ended up a huge negative in games like Burnout. It's just a theme song in the end, but someone should tell Yamauchi that it's not the perfect choice ;)

And unfortunately, current day Muse is too pop, which is a crying shame (Muse pun intended for those who get it) But they are still my top band, and Matt Bellamy's voice is much better than the whiny, American teen voice that MCR has (no offense)

shazui1232743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

Muse are f*cking miles better than MCR, please don't make me mention them both in the same sentence again.

However I'm annoyed at Muse because of the whole Twilight thing. Before 2010 they were a-goddamn-mazing.
@ musemanmike: :)

@Snugglebandit. Please go fuck yourself for your stupid opinions. You make me ashamed to bear this username.

Fred-G-Sanford2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

lol @ that GT5 intro song pick.

SnuggleBandit2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

Tell me to go fuck myself for my opinion?? Who the hell are you??

What are we back in junior high? God how can people agree with you over that comment?

The hatred we have in this world over stupid crap is truly astounding...

Hydrolex2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

if you youtubed the song, that song is fake ! it has not been released yet

Charazani2743d ago

He said Muse was more "pop" oriented and at the same musical level as MCR. He removed that part. And claimed it as an accident. Don't buy his bullshit.

-Alpha2743d ago

The problem isn't that the song is fake, the problem is that it's My Chemical Romance, a band that a large majority of GT users and people in general don't seem to like much lol.

HolyOrangeCows2743d ago

"...My Chemical Romance..."


SnuggleBandit2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

I still stand by that statement, i literally accidentally edited my first comment instead of my second one and then forgot EXACTLY what i wrote when i re-edited it.

Muse does more "ballad" style music (with synthesizers, high notes, etc) which to me is more like pop

MCR (if you've actually listened ALL their records) are for more rock based

And even so, how does that comment justify you telling me to go fuck myself?? I dont get it...

ExplosionSauce2743d ago

No thanks SCEA for your music pick!

Wonder what the EU and JP versions will have instead.

Rocket Sauce2743d ago

I'm not even a Gran Turismo fan and this makes me sad.

TheIneffableBob2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

Muse are all over the place with their genres. They've done prog rock, heavy metal, pop, classical, and even rap. Even though they've done Twilight stuff, I still think they're a great band because they experiment with their music and don't get too comfortable with what they're good at. Oh, and their live performances are FUCKING INCREDIBLE.

kneon2743d ago

The song is kind of dull. MCR have much better songs than that to choose from.

DORMIN2743d ago

As much as I disapprove and dislike the band, I would like to hear the song first.

You never know it might actually fit. The GT franchise has always had some amazing music so hopefully this will be good.

Dee_912743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

i like SOME of MCR songs
so i wont speak on it till i hear
i wouldve like friendly fires or passion pit or something but wut ev
lol wouldve been epic if it was some rap music tho
lupe gucci kanye somebody well known

if it was N.E.R.D i wouldve had an heart attack lol
but what ev
after yhe 1st few times i skip the intro so idrc

Gue12743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

the song's awful...

edit: well, forget it, the author of this article says that the guy that posted the song on youtube is a troll(?).

OneSneakyMofo2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

Music is subjective. Get over yourselves, people.

My song genre spans country, rap, pop, rock, hardcore, emo, death metal, classical, opera, broadway, celtic, instrumental, electronic, etc. Think I'm joking? I got over 50GB of music. :D

This should be the intro song:

skwidd2743d ago

You could be joking about Rick Astley and he may have become an internet joke but that song is seriously not bad and catchy. I am serious when saying I'd rather hear Rick sing over what they picked. Rick over some GT cars would be described as wonderful, colorful and joyous! :)

Dont hate me :/

Hideo_Kojima2742d ago (Edited 2742d ago )

the intro is going to be a song like this...

With clips like this playing...

Try playing the sound of the first video and mute the second link I posted.

I don't think MCR and GT5 fit too much but hey maybe the song they are using will fit the intro.

If the editing is good I think you can make an MCR song much a GT5 montage.

We will see.

I don't know if racing sims use music tracks a lot but I never liked the generic pop songs I've heard in GT5 so far. It makes no sense. Burnout had the same problem.

Hopefully we can play our own music, I hate these sort of bands. Hopefully it's just instrumental.

NoOoB1012743d ago

Custom soundtracks has been confirmed along time ago =D

rrw2743d ago

it actually confirm you can play custom soundtrack

mike90772743d ago

dexter theme song FTW haha

Shadow Flare2743d ago

At least it's not justin beiber

Pen152742d ago

Yea I think we can ALL agree on that.

MexicanAppleThief2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

Thank god for custom soundtracks!

EvilBlackCat2743d ago




this is funny shit

ALL THIS fools claiming that GT music have always been better than the forza sountrack.... LOL!!!

aaahhh no gt music can touch this one >>>


theonlylolking2743d ago

That song in forza is great but most are not good.I dont think GT has a great soundtrack either but forza 3 has a better soundtrack than GT4, GT1, and possible GT2.

iPad2743d ago

ROFL. You actually care about the music in the game?

jony_dols2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

Dragula GT2 tops anything.

Sunday cup in the Primera

Neither GT nor Forza have had the best OST in a racing game.
Wipeout XL owns that honor.

kneon2743d ago

I stopped listening at the first "ya, uh huh". I can't stand that sort of crap.

Ilikegames762743d ago

sworn EBC, you sound just like a Turn 10 employee.

Hideo_Kojima2742d ago

look at the poor fanboy he finally things he found a flaw in GT5...


Oh noooOoOeez GT5z no longer good!!!

Forza 3 is better because is has cool song!!!

iPad2743d ago

You never know. I didn't like the song for GT5 from the E3 trailer. But then I kept on listening to it and it fit perfectly for the trailer and now i like the song.

It could be the same thing for this song.

ShadowJetX2743d ago

The game hasn't even been released yet, so that means there's plenty of time to choose a knew opening theme song should the fans all send hate mail to Kaz (don't send actual hate mail! Just tell him we're not pleased with the chosen song YA'KNOW!)

Phew, I'm glad the game missed it's printing date, even if it's by three days yeah.

Anorexorcist2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

Besides the music, I can't stand the fact that all the frontmen for "bands" of today all have that Adam Lambert look and persona. They wear black eye-liner, black nail polish, black cloths, jet-black hair, and yet all sound like complete p*ssies. It's like some sick, p*ssified alternative form of punk.

I would have preferred Rob Zombie's "Two Lane Blacktop" or Primus's "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver". Anything but the 21st century disposable crap like MCR. MCR and pretty much 85% of active bands today are generic pop.

ilikestuff2743d ago

open up the game with rusty cage from soundgarden. thatll light some fire under a nut sack or two! if you dont now the song go look it up. pure badassocity!

This is the first time any soundtrack related article on n4g got this many approvals within minutes.

@below - haters gonna hate.

Motorola2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

no one heard it yet. have you? impossible. go away troll!
@wat How am i hating? YOUR HATING ON A SONG YOU HAVENT HEARD! typical troll

MGRogue20172743d ago

... Let's hope it sounds good then.. 'cause we'll be hearing it every time we boot up the game. -.-

PirateThom2743d ago

Maybe not, GT5P had an option to turn off the intro movie...

I'm also hoping it's not Europe... sorry America, but if it's me and you, I'm taking me.

I wish they'd just use Moon Over the Castle for all regions though and stop the messing around.

yewles12743d ago

"I wish they'd just use Moon Over the Castle for all regions though and stop the messing around."


Redempteur2743d ago

wait am i confused ?

What happened to "5ouls on di5play" ?

because i loved the lyrics ...

skwidd2743d ago

""I wish they'd just use Moon Over the Castle for all regions though and stop the messing around."


^ I second that.

I also would love hearing this one used.

This sounds like something the EU version might have. I'd buy the one with the better intro song :)
