MLB 2K10 Soundtrack Announced

  POSTED February 17, 2010

As anticipation for the baseball season begins to build, 2K Sports is bringing the heat by unveiling the music soundtrack for MLB 2K10, the next iteration of the popular Major League Baseball 2K series. Featuring an eclectic array of sounds chosen to enhance the virtual baseball experience, the artists selected for this season range from rock legends Pearl Jam and Social Distortion, to rap pioneers The Sugarhill Gang and Black Sheep, along with popular up-and-coming acts such as Cage the Elephant and Phoenix.

"I couldn't have put together a better soundtrack that reflects the spirit of baseball fans if I created it myself," said Evan Longoria, All-Star third baseman for the Tampa Bay Rays and cover athlete for Major League Baseball 2K10. "Every game needs a killer soundtrack, and that's what we definitely have in Major League Baseball 2K10."

Beyond its mix of musical genres, the Major League Baseball 2K10 soundtrack also received some assistance in the selection process by Longoria himself, who helped to hand-pick the inclusion of the hard-rock band, Tantric. Longoria's personal favorite Tantric song, "Down and Out", will also serve as his walk up song throughout the actual MLB season. In a unique partnership between SPIN magazine and 2K Sports, bands also had the opportunity to participate in a special contest to be featured in Major League Baseball 2K10. The gritty indie funk band hailing from San Diego, Hotel St. George, was selected as this year's contest winner. The Grammy award-winning French alternative rock band, Phoenix, and their new single "Lisztomania" will also make its way on the soundtrack to get fans pumped for the game.
