Name That Track, Get A Spot In The Credits For GT5

Okay, so maybe you're no master programmer. But that doesn't mean you can't steal a place in what is guaranteed to be a lengthy credits list for Gran Turismo 5.

It must be quite the thrill to see your name up there as a member of any credit roll, so you might want to give it a shot. Head on over to the game's official site to get the scoop: what they want is a track title name (in English) for the music track heard in the recent E3 2010 trailer. So feel free to listen to the track, read the lyrics and send in your title suggestion; if your grand idea is selected, your name will be included in the "Special Thanks" section of the credits for GT5. Not bad, eh? Make sure to follow the rules regarding submission and entry because if you don't, you could be disqualified before Polyphony even bothers to review your idea. The deadline is July 25 and they will announce the winner within two weeks of that date; you don't have a heck of a lot of time, so make sure you get those creative juices pumping quickly. Oh, and if you're wondering who will be doing the judging...why, it'll be none other than series creator and producer Kazunori Yamauchi. We're wondering how many total submissions he's gonna have to wade through...

But hey, you don't have to do much to enter. Just think a bit and give it a try. Who knows?

My Submisssion

Proposed Title: Your BPS (Beats Per Second) Is Decided By Your MPH (Miles Per Hour)

Name: Justin W. Morgan

Country: United States of America

Description of Title: A Simple metaphor of the mere fact your heart increases the same as your car does. As if to match the intensity of the experience, but yet slows reality down to control the chaos.

I think they are looking for something that relates more to the song than the game.

Maybe it's just me, but the title track seems a bit strange, only because it has nothing to do with the concept of racing at all.

Other than that, I do like the song & it's lyrics.

Fuel by Metallica would have been a way better theme for this game...

Oh well, guess they just go by the genre with the "most" fans in America.

Sadly punk is what every teenager in America goes for. That or hip hop.

Would have liked some metal or techno

GT1 had the best themes, pure techno greatness!

Fuel, or anything off of that album, by Metallica is complete dogs%$t. Your generalizations are pretty funny though. I wonder what you think "punk" is, considering you thought the whole sound track for GT was "pure techno".

I'm sorry but Techno is not music. Its just sounds made with a machine laid out over the same overplayed drum machine beat. oods, oods, oods, oods, oods!

And I'm sorry Crow, Fuel is garbage.

I want old Metallica back! Gone are the days of ...And Justice for All.

Well when I say techno I think of either Basshunter or the likes of Daft Punk. Though I am not sure of whether they would be techno or Electronic/Electronica.

@JMO,
You represent 99% of teenagers, right?

If I hated the US I wouldn't live here now would I?

Fuel's a great song, and most importantly if fits perfectly with racing.

@Jawk,
I've said that before. So yes we're actually on the same page when it comes to Metallica. Except that I actually like Fuel.

Nice! Hope I win

Either way just hope someone from psxe wins it.
There are millions of GT fans so the chances are very small. But would be great if one of us gets it.

I went and listened to the song and if someone thought that was punk, then you need your ears checked. Not sure what I would call it, other than bad, music was ok, but the lyrics were terrible.

Go listen to flogging molly, now there's some punk music.

Flogging Molly are great though i don't know if i would consider them punk rock. They're songs are too coordinated and melodic.

I'm not knocking punk rock, it happens to be my favorite genre of music i just think Flogging Molly are a beast of their own. When i think punk i think Bad Religion, NOFX, Propagandhi, The Vandels, Guttermouth, etc.

I always let the credit's roll once I've finished the game.

Just because some developer's like to reward us for watching the credit's by adding in maybe an extra cutscene or two, easter eggs, or other various goodies throughout their credits.

Or a even little mini-game or something else that's equally good for gamers, but only after all their credits are done.

I hope there's custom sound tracks in this game. I can't stand some of the music Sony picks for their presentations and games like this. I want to race while listening Greg Graffin and Co. Sing their "oozin aahs".

I generally listen to death metal when racing. It helps to cancel out the rap emitting from the ricer mobile. Oh, we're talking about video game racing, huh? Oops.
