Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to mount your high horse. EA has announced the soundtrack to Skate and it is all over the place in its rocking. In our interview with the folks at EA Blackbox, we asked about the tunes we'd be thrashing to and their supplied artists were a fine example of the variety found on the soundtrack.
Checking in at 45 songs, Skate features everything from punk rock legends Black Flag, influential hip-hoppers Gang Starr and the likes of Rick James. There are a few more contemporary acts in there such as The White Stripes and Nirvana, but for metal heads nothing will sound better than Slayer. An oddity at best, the included N.W.A. track, "Express Yourself" has also appeared in the soundtrack for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4.
Check out the full soundtrack and endless groaning and moaning behind the cut. We've also supplied iTunes Music Store links (when applicable) to each of the tracks so that you may sample the unknown.
