Buddy Addresses Madden '09 Song Version

Posted by: Anton Djamoos (08/18/08)
Buddy Nielsen (Senses Fail) recently spoke to me to address the discrepancy between the album version of "Wolves at the Door" and the version that appears in Madden '09. About the Madden version...
From BuddyWe had to change the lyrics because they weren't 'pg' enough. The chorus and a couple other lines changed; it was also mixed by someone else. Brian Mcternan mixed the record and Paul Levitt mixed the song

Krusty the Clown: Now, boys, the network has a problem with some of your lyrics. Do you mind changing them for the show?
Anthony Kiedis: Forget you, clown.
Chad Smith: Yeah, our lyrics are like our children, man. No way.
Krusty the Clown: Well, okay, but here where it says, "What I got you gotta get and put it in ya," how about just, "What I'd like is I'd like to hug and kiss ya."
Flea: Wow. That's much better!
Arik Marshall: Everyone can enjoy that!

I don't see anything wrong with it in this case. EA must've shown interest in the first place, but required the songs to be toned down to keep their own rating for Madden. It wasn't like Senses Fail were sitting in a room writing a separate PG version incase EA gave them a call one day.

If I was in a band and the developers of a game played by millions upon millions of people asked me to change a few words for a specific video game only version of a song, I'd jump on that shit.

I'm gonna disagree, to an extent. Illegal immigrants picking strawberries in California are making more money than bands nowadays it seems. You kind of have to rely on little things like this to pay the bills. Whatever works, I say.

You really have to take senses fail with a grain of salt. i always keep my expectations low so im not disappointed. But then again i went to see senses fail when they did like four little shows before still searching came out and it was the best performance of any band i've ever seen. I've seen them where they were terrible but like i said sometimes they are amazing.
