"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.
