EA announces SKATE soundtrack, outlaws rejoice

You’ve seen the screenshots. You’ve heard about the new “Flickit” control system that’s going to revolutionize the skating genre. But now, the question that has been burning brains across the world is finally being answered — which one of the Ramones’ songs is going to make it into EA’s SKATE? The answer to that question, and more, will be answered after the jump, where the games entire soundtrack is listed by artist. The aural selection is rounded out by excusive tracks from DJs like XXXChange and Tommy Guerrero. If that doesn’t get you excited, then that makes two of us.

According to Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing at EA, the game’s soundtrack “is a direct reflection of true outlaw skateboard culture. It’s a throwback to the days of underground skateboard videos when skaters created their own soundtracks that raided every genre of music.”

Creating my own soundtrack … hmmm. Gee, that’s a clever idea. I wonder if any of the consoles I own will allow me to do that. Because if one of them can, chances are I will never have to listen to any of the game’s 45 licensed songs. But custom sountracks? That’s fancy moon talk.
