Gran Turismo 5 Intro Song Revealed

October 19th, 2010 by Jordan

Alternative rock band My Chemical Romance has announced that “Planetary (Go!)”, from their upcoming album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, will be featured as the “lead song in the opening cinematic” of Gran Turismo 5. Before you run over to YouTube or anywhere else to preview the song – don’t bother. The album will not be released until November 22, and as of right now, there’s no way to listen to it.

(If you do run over to YouTube – and yes, I know you will – don’t be fooled by the troll who claims to have uploaded “Planetary (Go!)”. As confirmed by our own SolidSnakex and SoundHound, that’s not it.)

Keep in mind that GT intro tunes have always varied by region, so this may or may not be what you’ll hear when you first fire up the game. Here’s a copy of the full press release:

BURBANK, CA–(October 19, 2010) –  “Planetary (GO!),” a track off My Chemical Romance’s upcoming new album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, will be featured as the lead song in the opening cinematic of Sony Playstation’s Gran Turismo® 5 video game, available exclusively on Playstation® 3 this holiday.

“Gran Turismo is one of the most beloved videogame franchises of all time, with fans across the globe,” says My Chemical Romance’s lead singer Gerard Way. “Having a song featured as the lead intro to GT5 allows us to reach fans beyond radio and online and into a totally different platform. We are thrilled that our song is going to be the first thing you hear when you boot up the game.”

My Chemical Romance are currently making waves at Alternative radio with their new single “Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na),” off Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, which will be released by Reprise Records on November 22nd, 2010. The album was produced by new Warner Bros. Records Chairman Rob Cavallo, who produced MCR’s platinum-selling album The Black Parade as well as albums by Dave Matthews Band, Jawbreaker, and The Goo Goo Dolls, among many others.

    Same procedure as every year…

    Like always, the first thing you have to do in GT is to turn the music off. And if only to avoid the horrible elevator music in the menus.

    This song choice is obviously to prepare kids to slit their wrists after waiting 6 years for mediocre production….

    Seriously, nothing makes me want to go out and race like some good ol’ american My Chemical Romance…

    I hear its hard to hear the vocals at the concert over all the gay sex…..

    Thats what im saying GT5 cant find a better song than this garbage??? Is this them saying sorry for delaying this so long?

    Moon over the Castle should be the intro song, MCR can suck it, and suck it hard.

    OneEyedPimp20

    Jesus Christ, no… I truly hate MCR.

    Put “The Distance” by Cake as the intro for Gran Turismo 5. That song is hell a lot better than MCR’s bullcrap.

    Maybe this is all a joke and only for the standard version, and if you buy one of the special editions, the music in it will be fixed/patched.

    Its not about not being open-minded. MCR has never made a good song. Ever. Period. So, this song will not be good either. Shit choice by Sony or whoever the hell chose it. That sucks.

    Even if the intro music isn’t the best i hope atleast they have a great ingame/race soundtrack like they did in GT4 and GT3.
    I hope there’s some more Queens of the Stone Age, maybe some Foo Fighters and a few more songs to get the blood pumping while playing =D

    Does anyone have a song list for GT5?

    • Oct. 21, 8:13am
      G

      No song list yet, but they are giving the you the chance to make your own soundtrack with whatever MP3’s you have on the PS3… so yes, GT5 officially has the best soundtrack EVER! (because its yours and mine)

    Too many ignorant comments in here, if you don’t like the music fine, no need to talk badly about the Band as they do have their own style and it is enjoyed by a great deal of others. As a musician myself, I shudder when I hear people talk this way, playing music and coming up with something interesting and new isn’t easy. It’s weird when people hate for no apparent reason, other than to satisfy some misguided disdain for someone who they don’t even know.

    As long as the music sounds good, I’m usually all for it. Lyric wise if it’s objectionable then I tend to start looking at things a little differently.

    MCR seems to be hit or miss with me. Not carzy about them in geneal but occasionally they come out with a good song. Who knows, maybe we’ll get luck and it won’t be that bad, or maybe they’ll make an attempt at breaking out of their genre with this album. Hell if I know.

      Err “Every You, Every Me” isn’t an MCR song its Placebo and a damn site better then anything MCR has ever produced!

    In no way am I any serious rock fan (especially not of My Chemical Romance), but I, too am skeptical of their appearance for an intro song. Part of me says that “Moon Over the Castle” is the theme song of Gran Turismo… so why put in other songs to kick off Gran Turismo? GT4 was about the first time most people heard “Moon Over the Castle” in a GT. Or if you’re going to have certain other songs, why not something of Daiki Kasho or something?

    I also believe this song could be remixed so that it sounds just a touch acceptable. Like how GT4 had James Brown and Earth, Wind, and Fire… as a remixed song for racing.

    Just the notion of My Chemical Romance makes me cringe (sorry if this offends anyone) for GT5. Regardless of who makes the intro music for the game, it won’t take away from the thrill of racing and owning cars in GT5 when it’s released. Maybe that’s the biggest thing to take away from this whether you like My Chemical Romance or not.

  17. Oct. 20, 12:12pm
    Robin

    I gosh I hope its not as bad as Kasabian’s – Reason Is Treason on EU GT4. It fit dreadfully!

    This is probably only for the US GT5, I’m sure the JPN version will be moon over the castle. I loved the opera style version we saw at the start of GT4 intro which was also in the GT5 PSP teaser.

    I really dont mind, as someone said before, u will see the intro 2 or 3 times…as for me, I have collected all the GT series songs that I like and converted those to MP3 already, so I will have some “classics” playlist to play on GT5…some of “all time favorites”

  21. Oct. 20, 9:20am
    ChronowerX_GT

    The Japanese version will still most probably be Moon Over The Castle. It would be a shame if it wasn’t.

    As for MCR, I haven’t really listened to them before. And besides, the song’s not released yet so lets not criticize it before anyone’s heard it. Kaz and his team picked the song anyway for a reason, normally I trust their judgement when it comes to GT since they normally hit the nail on the head with the intro’s.

    MCR?!!! Is this a prank or something? They absolutely suck worse than the guys on X Factor! Heres a suggestion for a better song :

    GMW

    Kaz is a perfectionist and I believe he knows what he does and why he does it. So I’ll reserve personal judgement on the song till the Game is launched and will most probably try to understand it in context to the footage the intro will show. Which means it will probably be quite good.

    They couldn’t have picked a worse band could they?

    But at least we have get to play our own music in the game so I can build up a playlist of driving songs :)

      After the hole “name this song” competition i thought for sure “Soul on Display” would be the opening tune. and definitely much better than MCR though i would prefer a song without words

    I would’ve though that a remix of ‘EVERYTHING MUST GO’ by THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS from the original GT would’ve made a much better and nostalgic intro. *sigh*

    • Oct. 20, 2:40am
      UnkaD013

      I’ll second that to the end. That is still the most exciting intro of them all. I absolutely LOVED that song, and the whole build up to the title… Epic. The Cardigans in GT2 was okay. Then they killed it with GT3. GT4 would have been good if they kept the original “Moon Over the Castle” instead of cutting off to Van Halen. Very meh…

      @UnkaD013

      Moon Over The castle used to always give me goosebumps :)

      Van Halen??? Since when were they in GT4? MOTC cuts off to Kasabian – Reason Is Treason

    • Oct. 20, 9:37am
      TTownEP

      @ SVT
      My copy of GT4 here in America definitely cuts to “Panama.”
      I’m personally neither +1 or -1 on this MCR deal. I like some of the their songs, and dislike others. Some of the stuff from “Welcome to the Black Parade” was not too bad, like a Queen revival. I know that when I fire that PS3 up and slide the disc in, I’ll get chills no matter what song they play during the opening intro. I’ll watch it several times too. Do I wish they would put MOtC in there? Yes, but I’m not going to let a little song choice ruin my GT5 experience.

    why change a song that was so prefect for the game!?? Moon Over The Castle should be in EVERY GT game.. I hated when they placed the Lenny Kravitz (Spelling?) song “Are you gonna go my way” as the intro song to GT3 here in the states, while everyone else got “Moon Over The Castle”.. why does Polyphony do that!?? dammit! They just ruined a perfect game… (and it should be perfect this time thanks to the delay).

    • Oct. 20, 4:25pm

    I don’t see the connection… I have to say I wished they went with one of the major J-rock bands.. Flow, L’arc Ciel, the Pillows, etc. That would be MUCH better than what they have picked out.

  41. Oct. 19, 10:54pm
    unoc

    It ocmes out on the 22nd. And this has been said after the delay. So it seems pretty certain that the delay will hold it back till no later than the 22nd of november most probably. Maybe just after, but when they contracted the band to do it, they would have had a clause saying ‘if there is no game out, then you can’t put it on your cd, youll have to hold onto it’.

    Hence, I’m guessing, no certainty, but quite probably that the game will be out during november.

    I don’t care what song they use. For me “Moon over the Castle” is, and always will be, the song of Gran Turismo. I’ll mute my TV and play “Moon over the Castle” in the background.

    Btw, if you’ve never heard the song before, I strongly recommend you check it out. Especially the Japanese GT4 trailer, which is just spine tingling good.

    Since i have no idea what the song sounds like yet. All it takes is one good song to make GT5 look or one really bad song to destroy the rest of the GT5 look, if that happens i will have to mute the rest intro every time.

    So this song cannot be heard until Nov. 22nd but the original release date for GT5 was to be Nov 2nd and this song is featured in the cinematic opening of the game. PD planned to use a unreleased song for the game (Nov 2nd) that was meant to be listened for Nov 22nd in the album. I don’t want to think that this issue is one of the reasons for the delay.

    I cannot believe how many of y’all are bashing a song you haven’t even heard yet! For me personally, I’m actually more excited about the intro because of MCR. No, not because they’re my favorite band, (in fact I don’t have a single song by them), but because that this GT’s intro will completely stand out from the rest, being the oddball choice that it is.

    • Oct. 20, 12:40am

      its because we all – well i personally – thought we had heard the intro song already! and i think its an amazing choice. why do they do a competition and all that stuff if in the end the song dissolves into thin air. *cough*

    I think the intro to GT1 was the best of every game. The song was unforgetable! I think the same should be for this intro. I’ve never thought that the intros were lame in GT, all were good and had a certain mood when you started the game for the first time.

    I highly douby they will put a poo poo song at the start of such a big title. Seriously, with everything so thought out about this game they aint gonna mess up the intro.

    The new MCR stuff isnt ‘emo’ or whatever you wanna call it. It is gonna be upbeat, lively and will probably suite it perfectly

      We’re all so disappointed ’cause we expected some beautiful, captivating/epic symphonic music like in GT4.

      Thats from the japanese version only. The american and european version got different songs. As far as I remeber europe got Kasabian ‘The reason is treason’. Have no idea what america got. I’m pretty one of the versions will be the original GT theme like in the video you posted

    I never heard a song by the band until I saw this news and youtubed them–really their music is about on par with previous GT soundtrack picks. It would have really fit in with GT1.

    I hope this new one isn’t a bad song though–I stopped playing burnout paradise in short order because of its title track and the inability to shut it up.

    Oh wow, so many open-minded people here… shocking really, you haven’t heard the song and you are judging it because it’s from MCR? i expect that behaviour from kids.
    I like all sorts of music and while MCR is not one of my favourite bands i still don’t mind some songs, and i am very looking forward to this new one.

    Bring on GT5!

      Im very open minded. Just because we don’t like MCR doesn’t mean we aren’t. It’s just obvious Sony is trying to pull in any demographic they can. Or only thing i can think of is they had them create a song they would normally never do.

      It would come as no surprise that the entirety of thew GT5 sound track is comprised of artists signed to Sony Music and it’s Affiliated record labels.

      So if the sound track sucks, that would say something for the quality of Artists signed to Sony Music.

      Thank god for the music volume sliders allowing me to Mute music while racing.

      Now if only we could load our own music (And Playlists) into GT5 for racing.

      My Chemical Romance is emo garbage. They have never made a good song and never will. You can look up their material on Youtube for a taste of what this one will probably sound like. But i’m warning you, it won’t be good.

      Your reference here is anything previously recorded by MCR.

      I doubt that anyone on the forum will not buy GT5 due to this selection of “music”.

      I’m also tired of waiting ’till we actually have something as a reference’.

      Don’t expect too many positives…I’m still irritated by the delay and still no new date.

      On the bright side…wait a minute…there’s a bright side?!!

    I don’t mind MCR, but it doesn’t really matter. I’m sure menu tracks will be classic Gran Turismo and I don’t usually listen to music while I’m racing.

    If the stock soundtrack is an abomination, I’ll just load a custom playlist.

    Do you suppose the 22 November release date of their album has any significance for the release date of GT5?

    While it’s nice to hear a tidbit here and there…I’d really like to know not what I’ll hear the intro music, but WWWHHHEEENNN!

    November 22?

  84. Oct. 19, 7:19pm

    So if the game was released on 2nd November. We would get the song before it was actually released?
    Does that ever happen?

    • Oct. 19, 9:34pm
      occasionalracer

      Songs that appear on upcoming albums are always released way beforehand either through Music Video or Radio, so it wouldn’t be impossible for the game to come out before the 22nd, yet still it’s probably impossible on PD’s side.

  85. Oct. 19, 7:19pm

    hopefully the song will be good. always have despised MCR but i can’t judge it until i’ve heard it i suppose. GT have never disappointed me when it comes to intro music before.

      And if you say… yeah well you only play randomly, hehe I tell you no, I’m a serious racer. So yeah My Chemical Romances is not the best choice, but your age thing isn’t completely true though.

      HugoStiglitz_420

      we don’t mean offense to kids that hate emo, I did too, but fact is, the only adults who like emo are suicidal & probably in the closet like MCR. The audience of GT5 is mostly adults or mature people in general that don’t listen to little kids music. It’s like those songs in 1st grade, you may have liked them then but the novelty wears off. but to be clear, I always hated emo & I started listening to music with metallica

  88. Oct. 19, 7:18pm
    CarBastard

    Really? Gothic pseudo emo instead of another lively track from Daiki Kasho or the original Moon Over the Castle?

      The Hooplah you are referring was just to have your name included in the printed material of the game, and have one of the song in the game named… that’s all… 5oul on D!splay was never supposed to be the opening intro song, so dont be confusing everything…

      agree, infact the music in the whole series has been awesome, i came across allot of great bands i never heared about before in GT3 and 4.
      They always have music from great but mostly unknown or less known artists, and thats great!
      I hope it will be the same for GT5, and not to much mainstream popmusic. MCR is a good band, but i don’t know if its the right choice for GT5, but then again i haven’t heard the new album yet :(

      >MCR is for 13 year old girls

      Quoted for truth. Though I have to admit that the majority of the music of the European versions of GT have been surprisingly spectacular throughout the series. If MCR just happens to make one single good song and it just happens to be the one on GT5 I wouldn’t be surprised.
