Should THQ use unsigned bands in WWE '13?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I was thinking the other night, instead of paying for the use of generic tracks, why not use unsigned bands to contribute music? They would happily (I know this as I would allow my music to be used if given the opportunity) allow their song to be used for free (and sign contracts etc. to that effect), as not only would it be good exposure, it would also be good for the game.

 

Imagine, instead of generic stuff we had this? Our original caws, and maybe even the WWE Superstars , could have a lot of choice for gimmicks etc.(considering loads of bands would be up for this). What do you think? I reckon if you do like the idea, we could get enough responses in this thread and let someone at THQ know? It's probably just enough time to get this sorted for the next game or at least WWE '14.

 

And before anyone says, I am not just saying this because I would want my band in. I would be happy with any extra music to choose from, and t would help us hear some new bands from around the world we might not have heard of before.

I'm okay with it, as you said there's a lot of talent that remained unnoticed. Plus, we will have a lot of music to choose from, maybe some o;f their songs and covers of old themes.

They have been using the wrestler's entrance music for a few games now...personally, not a fan. How many times did we all have to hear Maryse's stupid Pourquoi song throughout SVR11?

 

How cool was it hearing Anthrax, Showcore, Megadeth, etc on the soundtracks of past games? In SVR (2004) on PS2, you even had music playing during the matches if you wanted.

 

I discovered the band Nonpoint because of this series. If not unsigned bands, they should at least pick some more unknown artists.

I discover Nonpoint too because of the series, also Egypt Central which became one of my faves.

I can honestly say I have never once bought a wrestling game because of the music.

 

I like the idea of unsigned bands, but chances are finding a good unsigned bands wouldn't happen. I know a lot of people in unsigned bands and a lot suck. There are good ones, you just have to look for them, which is something I doubt the WWE would do.

Here is my idea of the music,

 

As long as it's not like Smackdown! Here Comes the pain annoying generic Record scratching and random noises filtered in and garbages entrance themes over and over and over again (Ooooh, you just smoke & Mirrors). Then I'm fine, WWE'12's music was annoying to low. You couldn't hear it half the time which left you in complete silence, kinda like the Free Brawls...

the reason I suggested unsigned bands was the fact it would cost NOTHING as many bands would be willing. and although a lot of local unsigned bands tend to suck, some unsigned bands are spectacular, and there is enough online in many different genres that dont suck. It would just be a case of thq posting on facebook and other social media sites saying they need bands, and then picking the best from the pile.

 

I too found Nonpoint from hearing "Bullet With A Name" on one of the games. I think this could be a good thing for both parties.

The bands they should use for the soundtracks should be one for their PPVs.

If they make shitty music like the kind of musicians WWE chooses for their PPV theme then No, I'd rather they used wrestler themes instead. I'd rather listen Randy Ortons or Drew Mac's theme than MGK or Flo Rida...

Hurricane Cletis, or better yet, contact Traumatosis and get him to make some songs for the game.

W/e happens, I hope to God they never use entrance themes again. In 2011 I found myself skipping certain entrances just because I had enough of hearing their theme song while I made Caws and what not. Smoke & Mirrors was a prime example.

Legends of Wrestling I & II had Saliva and others with their budget soooo.

Wrestlemania X8 had Drowning Pool and Smackdown! vs RAW 2006 had a good music bit too..

 

I guess it's reflective of WWE's tv product.

Them using rock for PPV hype videos are what got me into that type of music and I'd like to see it return in all aspects-

We are talking about unsigned bands who have never been heard of before; not major bands on record labels such as Epitaph and the like. The majority of unsigned bands would do it for free due to the publicity. Hell, if they take notice of this idea then I better get into action with my band, as I love the WWE games and I'd love to have a song by my own band playing whilst I play the game.

Glad to hear someone else with a band agree that they'd do it free! now lets get more people to say how much they like this idea, so we can present THQ with the concept. you never know, wwe may not even let them if they wanted to.

Better yet, if we can customize wrestler's entrance music by uploading our own mp3s, whynot give us the option to do the same for our in-game soundtrack?

I am on PS3...even if I had a 360, still not looking to replace entrance music and match commentary/sounds, only the music that plays during title, VS, loading screens, etc.

Unsigned band's although a good idea, could end up as a legal nightmare for THQ. Most established bands accidentally steal a riff or two. Oasis Cigarettes and alcohol, T-rex get it on for perfect example. However established bands have huge record labels and powerful lawyers protecting them. THQ wouldn't be as protected, with the games industry in it's current decline. The risk would be too high to gamble on. I'm sure guy's like face82 honestly feel any piece of original music created by them are 100% original. Truth is though no one has heard every track from a single genre of music, but companies like EMI pay people they like to call "Internet sheriffs" to find similarities. Perhaps this is a huge reason why the record industry has turned into a reality tv talent/fashion show. If they control it from the start they can ensure they only steal beats/riffs from artist's already on their labels. If the record industry wasn't *censored*ed thanks to illegal downloads I think your idea would be golden.

I just want some more music, I'm tired of listing to the same thing for a 30 minutes

Rip your favourite tracks to your 360/PS3 and listen to whatever you want instead.

None of the track's in any game will remain new for longer than the first few weeks of owning it. If you're after something new explore Youtube/LastFM and discover new music, then buy it.
