EA Sports has revealed the first song from the Madden 08 soundtrack, “I Don’t Want to Stop” from Ozzy Osbourne.

“The anticipation for both Ozzy’s album and this year’s Madden NFL creates a perfect storm of excitement which made I Don’t Want to Stop an ideal lead song for the Madden NFL 08 soundtrack,” said Steve Schnur, EA’s Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing. “Now, The Prince Of Darkness meets The King Of Videogames and we’re enormously proud to have a killer new song from a legendary artist as our first announced track. This is going to be the biggest, wildest and best Madden NFL soundtrack yet.”

Ozzy Osbourne? Really? We’ll see how the song fits with the game, usually EA does a great job with the soundtracks. However an Ozzy song in Madden creating “a perfect storm of excitement” is a little over the top, don’t ya think?

The rest of the songs from the soundtrack will be announced in the coming weeks.
