Yeah, in last year's game. I think you have to do financial takeover from the EASFC Store.

I used it in my QPR save to see what it was like. Your transfer budget goes up by $50-75M. This was after I won the Premier League, too, so I used that cash to win the UCL by the end of the next season.

Anyone else actually enjoy just listening to the soundtrack now? Granted I haven't played much this month so I guess that's why I'm not tired of it

I actually have a lot of the music they put on the FIFA soundtracks anyway but yeah I did that as well on a few I didn't know.

FWIW ... FIFA had the Black Keys on one of their soundtracks before they really blew up. The one thing they do really well is they are always ahead of the curve on their music selection.

My understanding is there is like a 1% chance of it happening to a team that is user managed. I "bought" it for fun one time with an MLS team just dominate the league for a while. I don't use the catalog anyway. All that really happened was I scouted an amazing US national team, and won nearly every game by simulating. Got boring pretty fast, but was nice to win the WC with the USA.

Agreed! Muse was on there before they blew up in the US (and created that abortion of an album they just released), I love the FIFA soundtracks.

Which band and song? I sold my '12 copy...

I can handle it, but I was such a fan of their old sound I can't get into the new one. I know a lot of people that love the album. It's just not for me...

Great band (@ Jazz Fest 2013), one of the few times I wasn't introduced to a band by FIFA. (I.e. The Black Keys, Muse, Keane, Metric... and a few others that I was into before)

Not the best of songs, but its still cool to see a small band out of laffy making it on there

Givers suck. Royal Teeth have people from Lafayette and New Orleans and they have a song on FIFA 13.

I always liked that song. It's goofy and I did not know they were from Laffy. That is cool!

Didn't know that either, I like their song too.

One of the Lafayette guys is a big soccer fan too, think Arsenal.

Not surprising LHS (if he went there)and the Laffy area has been pretty good at soccer since as long as I can remember...

Don't get me wrong, I love Supermassive Black Hole (the album)

But part of what I like about Muse is their seeming variety even while still being able to instantly tell it's a muse song.

I can respect that. Honestly, Absolution is my favorite album by them and one of my favorite albums period. It took me a while to get into Resistance. Maybe I need to give this album another chance.
