The song that is. Do not adjust your TV set.
Namco has announced that its signed on Blurry from Geffen recording artist Puddle of Mudd to serve as the title track for Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War. "Blurry" will be featured in the games opening trailer and throughout several segments of the game.
The ACE COMBAT 5 development team had this song in mind when creating the game, said Yoshi Niki, Business Unit Director with Namco Hometek Inc. We are delighted to offer licensed music from one of todays most recognizable modern rock groups to fans of the ACE COMBAT franchise.
Through relentless touring with bands such as Staind, Godsmack and Deftones -- along with support from Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Dursts signing of the band to Geffens Flawless imprint -- Puddle of Mudd has become a recognized staple in contemporary modern rock. From the bands 2001 debut album, Come Clean, Blurry became the most played track on Modern Rock Radio in 2002 and earned the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) award for the most played song of the year. Come Clean has sold more than five million copies to date and has produced four top radio hits: Blurry, Control, Drift and Die and She Hates Me. Additionally, Come Clean sold 116,000 copies in its first week of release an industry record for a new rock act. The California-based foursome is currently touring in support of its November 2003 sophomore release, Life On Display.
