Free Energy, Hot Chip, Deadmau5 tapped for Sims 3 soundtrack


    Oh, The Sims. How you bring memories of hours upon hours of time lost on building homes and sending people to work. The Sims 3, the latest version of the immensely popular and addicting computer game, is coming to consoles (Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii) this October 26th. If you’ve put a stereo in your Sims’ home before, you’ll have noticed vocal tracks scattered throughout the radio stations. In fact, in the latest few expansions, you might have actually recognized some of the songs, albeit translated into the fictional Simlish language.

    This new version of the game is no different. A total of 21 artists/bands have lent their re-recorded music to it, from indie rockers Free Energy and School of Seven Bells to dance outfits Hot Chip and Deadmau5.

    Oh, and for the millionth —ahem — third expansion pack for the computer game, you can expect more of the same. A few of the songs from the console edition will be included, but in addition, you’ll be hearing both My Chemical Romance and Soulja Boy, among others.


    As such, take a look at the full list of songs you’ll be hearing while setting your Sims on fire.

    …that isn’t just me, right?
