Look at that no underground artists, again. (sometimes I hate when great products go mainstream) It ruins their essence.

Seriously? Macklemore and Drake? I was hoping there wasn't going to be any bad songs on this Soundtrack but i guess i'm horribly wrong, But it's good that the whole soundtrack isn't all hip hop even though i love hip hop.

I guess to many people think that LBJ is like what Skip Bayless says he is. NEWS FLASH Bayless, your team LOST! SCOREBOARD!!! People need just stop watching ESPN in general and this LeBron hate would not an issue because of ESPN's hate for being a PAWN for once instead of the other way around for a change during "The Decision", they spew on the airwaves for him leaving Cleveland. GET OVER IT PEOPLE, ESPN First Take is not gospel!!!

Looks cool at least compared to last year's own, but i still prefer the 2K12 soundtracks, it had some cool tracks like Machinedrum's Let it(edit remix)  feat Melo X.. that Rocked :)

I have to be honest, having Phil Collins on this soundtrack is pretty awesome.

Anybody remember 2 Ball for the PS1? Games have come a long way.

You might not realize how difficult it is to get some of these songs in game with how much money licensing and copyrights cost.

When I thought Lebron couldn't be any more lame...

Pretty horrible song list. Only songs I can tolerate are Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight" and that Macklemore song.

I miss the days when Basketball games had great soundtracks

So hopefully I can turn off the music, because I really don't want to hear Eminem, Coldplay, & Phill Collins whining in my ear at the menu screen.

Music looks fine, I'm just hoping they'll fix all the bugs that were in NBA 2K13. Especially the 6yr old stats/gametracker bug. How come there are no quarterly stats for players in the boxscore. EA has been doing that since NBA Live was on the PS2. We get Team Quarterly stats, but no player ones?

That soundtrack isn't too bad but I'd prefer to play my own. Please, just give us the option to CHOOSE OUR OWN MUSIC. Listening to it in just the freakn' arena or after a player of the game replay just doesn't cut it for me.

The fact that the soundtrack being chosen by Lebron and then turned into some huge announcement tells you exactly where the priorities are for the actual game itself and what its demographic is perceived to value in a game.

what is up with the cliche that the NBA community is only interested in this shit music?

That's a better list of menu music than they've had for A WHILE. But would it really be that hard to maybe have some sorta "soundtrack" update a couple months after the game releases? Maybe even put all the songs that have been on the NBA2K soundtracks up, and let you choose the ones you like?

@handsome222222 don't you remember how bad those games were, they had the same layup animation every single time you drove to the basket

@AvatarMan96 You think it's horrible yet you think Phil Collins is the best of it? Good thing it's only our opinions and they aren't right or wrong. Not Afraid is a shitty song, though. Eminem should give it up IMO.

Well it depends on your taste in music really, if you can't stand Hip Hop then i don't expect you to favor it!

...Also, already looks so much better than live '14, that they might as well cancel that shit... AGAIN.

@digits52 Oh well than... 40% is pure shit, everything wrong with modern day Hip-Hop and music in general, even Nas is shit compared to what he used to be.
