We all love FIFA, but could you imagine panning through the menus in silence? Over the years their have been some absolute bangers to sing to your mates after you stick another one in the back of the net, from Cobrastyle by Teddybears (FIFA 06) to Club Foot by Kasabian (FIFA 13). The tunes are back this year and they don’t disappoint. alt-J, Lorde, Mura Masa and ODESZA are just some of the big names taking you through FIFA 18, and you can expect to have these tracks stuck in your head after day one. Kick-back, relax and enjoy.
RealSport’s Top 5 Picks
Dangerous by The xx is taken from their latest number one album I See You. The track is a throwback to Jamie xx’s solo days, with the trumpet fanfare getting you pumped up for next match. The British trio are now one of the biggest bands in the world, headlining festivals around Europe this past summer.

Long-time FIFA fans will remember Fuego by Bomba Estereo from FIFA 10. The feel-good tune from the Colombian group is the perfect song to come on when you pause to review that wonderful strike that went in off the crossbar, as you dance around the living room in celebration.

Grime has exploded over the past two years thanks to Stormzy and Skepta, and the British rappers feature on Avelino’s Energy to give FIFA 18 some grit. Are you ripping your opponent to shreds? Every time you put another one past them, reciting one of the raps will wind them up big time.

One you will recognise is Found What I’ve Been Looking For by Tom Grennan. The 20-year-old featured on Chase & Status’s All Goes Wrong, which brought him to the limelight, and the Brit made the BBC’s Sound of 2017 longlist. Just suffered last-minute heartbreak, this is the song for you.

Best Friend by Sofi Tukker featuring NERVO, The Knocks and Alisa Ueno feels like a classic FIFA tune already. Trumpets and a strong bass is the perfect competitions, and as you make your way through Alex Hunter’s Journey, the American group’s track will make you tap your foot all the way to glory.

Special Edition Artist Ultimate Team Kits
Any Ultimate Team players from FIFA 17 will remember the swanky kits you could use, which were designed by the artists on the soundtrack. It’s the same this year, with strips from Capital Cities, Glass Animals, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Bloc Party, Grouplove, Saint Motel, Zhu and Lemaitre. These kits are only available to those who pre-order FIFA 18.
