We're not ashamed to admit that we've discovered many an enjoyable musician thanks to the varied licensed soundtracks that FIFA titles tend to employ. This year's edition, FIFA 16, boasts a total of 42 artists hailing from 15 different countries, and as always, we don't have a clue who most of them are.

Still, at least Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing at EA, seems to understand our situation: "With FIFA 16, we've once again created a soundtrack that will enable millions of fans worldwide to discover new music they might have never heard otherwise." We're glad someone said it.
