Iron Maiden takes Downhill Jam

Metal legends contribute song to Tony Hawk game for Wii; "Different World" will blare while gamers skate down streets.


Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam

Shooting down steep hills on a plank of wood on wheels just wouldn't sound right accompanied by polka, classical, or opera music. One of heavy metal's classic bands, Iron Maiden, will be included in the soundtrack to Activision's Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam, reports music Web site Blabbermouth. The song "Different World" from the forthcoming album A Matter of Life and Death has been selected as part of the game's soundtrack, says Blabbermouth. Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam is scheduled for release on the Wii, Nintendo DS, and Game Boy Advance later this year.
