Anthrax, Bush and Judas Priest are just a handful of bands that will shoot and score on ‘NHL 12.’ Each band will contribute a song to the upcoming hockey video game, with Anthrax and Bush using this prime placement as a platform to promote brand new songs. The game is due to drop in North America on Sept. 13.

Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing for EA, the company issuing the game, said in a statement that the game meshes classic songs and bands with newer school acts and cuts. “For this year’s edition, we’ve created a crunching mix of classic arena anthems from artists like Judas Priest and Billy Idol, killer recent tunes from bands such as Dropkick Murphys and Against Me!, and heavy tracks from emerging acts like Middle Class Rut and Manchester Orchestra. We’re also launching all-new songs from upcoming albums by Anthrax and Bush.” That’s a mix that will put smiles on the face of hard rock fans that also dig ice hockey and play video games.

The ‘NHL 12 track listing is as follows, and it’s an eclectic collection of some key household names and noteworthy underground up ‘n’ comers.

Against Me!, ‘Occult Enemies’
Anthrax, ‘I’m Alive’
Beady Eye, ‘Standing on the Edge of the Noise’
Billy Idol, ‘Mony Mony’
Black Tide, ‘That Fire’
Blackguard, ‘Farewell’
Bush, ‘Sound of Winter’
Death Letters, ‘I Wish I Could Steal a Sunset’
Dropkick Murphys, ‘Hang ‘Em High’
ELO, ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’
Judas Priest, ‘You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’
Manchester Orchestra, ‘April Fool’
Middle Class Rut, ‘Busy Being Born’
Murderdolls, ‘Whatever You Got, I’m Against It’
