Listen to some punk music from Refused being featured in the game.
If you’ve been following the Cyberpunk 2077 game long enough, you’ll probably know that CD Projekt Red has been working with the band Refused to bring an in-game band to life. The band goes by the name of Samurai in the world of Cyberpunk 2077 and we’ve seen the logo adorned on clothing such as the protagonist’s jacket collar, and yesterday a brand-new song was released.
You can listen to the latest track below, which is Samurai’s song “The Ballad of Buck Ravers”. However, there are many people being directed to this video through the limited edition controller that people have received recently that includes a QR code on the reverse of the controller, sending them to the video.
The lyrics touch on liberty, revenge, and a lot of violence, which seems rather fitting to the style of the game. It’s also perhaps the heaviest of the tracks released, and personally, I love it.
There have already been two songs previously released, “Never Fade Away” was one, while the other was “Chippin’ In“. Refused has been working on the songs, including writing, recording, and producing with creative direction from CD Projekt Red’s composer team which is being led by Marcin Przybyłowicz.
The game should have songs that are heavily inspired by original source material as well as original tracks that have been created exclusively by Refused for Cyberpunk 2077. There are other musicians and bands as part of the game’s soundtrack, but Refused seems to be the most prominent one, being fronted in-game by Keanu Reeve’s character, Johnny Silverhand.
The game is set to launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC in November and will be heading to next-generation consoles.
