Post-hardcore band Refused and Poland-based game developer CD Projekt Red have released the 2nd song made in collaboration for the upcoming video game Cyberpunk 2077, entitled "Never Fade Away".

Cyberpunk 2077 releases on April 16th. It is unclear whether or not the songs in collaboration with the game will appear on Refused's recently announced new album, War Music, which the band announced alongside single "Blood Red".

Band is fucking useless.

A game developer in the mid nineties would’ve hired a nobody to write a ‘rock’ tune for a specific set piece in some run of the mill point and click adventure and it genuinely would’ve been more impressive than this drek.

Why didn’t they just hire Perturbator to do the soundtrack or promo songs. At least synthwave would be way more fitting ffs

Man these tracks make me wish they'd been forgotten. This almost sounds like hair metal.

Between this and Black Flag (or whatever Greg Ginn decides to scramble together to milk that name for all it's worth) resuming activities again, it's a bad year for punk.

I actually think this song is decent and much better than Chippin’ In. So you know about 1/100th as good as TSOPTC

"I liked them before SOPTC became a cult classic"

Most of the bands discography besides SOPTC is pretty boring in my eyes, but I don't really like regular hardcore. More of a post-hardcore, metalcore guy.

It's becoming more and more obvious that refused are actually hacks and TSOPTC was literally some lucky ass fluke that probably wasnt even written by them.

Because they made music for the in-game rock band Samurai, where Johnny Silverhand aka Keanu Reeves (in Cyberpunk 2077) is the lead singer .. the main OST for the game is going to be synth based and you have different radio stations with various genres to choose from when driving

Maybe it was written by Jon, who played on their two good albums only, whom the band kicked out before they released Freedom.

I think this song is kind of a banger tb, but I really don't like Chippin' In.

This song is nothing groundbreaking, just has a solid riff and a good chorus. Best Dennis has sounded since the reunion.

At first I was pretty meh on this, but I gotta admit after a few listens I really dig the chorus. Its still nothing special but its catchy so I'm cool with it. It'll prolly be fun to hear while I'm causing havoc in the game.

Shape of Punk is definitely a classic, y'all is ridiculous. Acting like your feelings about the album somehow change its legacy.

Like, I've never been able to listen to a TOOL album all the way through, or an entire Black Sabbath album, or a Beethoven sonata, so that must mean that none of them deserve their spots in musical history, correct? The fuck outta here.

Refused ain't Beethoven, but they have their place. It was back then, and they aren't the same band with the same energy, but their place is secure.

I think people (mostly me but whatever) are trying to say you’ve been duped. It’s not a classic like you think it is. Those other artists you mentioned come much closer. No it didn’t influence punk like they thought it would, the album title is assuming a lot for a underground punk band from Sweden. It’s not even all that punk if you ask me. Go ahead and put it in your classic albums section in your brain but to most of the music listening community as a whole they’ve never even heard of it let alone actually enjoy it let alone actually declaring it a classic.

It was a hugely influential album around the time and continues to be so. Just because you personally dont like it does not change its influence in the slightest and trying to degrade that influence to line up with YOUR view on the album is so utterly up your own arse its pretty hilarious. Theres plenty of classic albums I dont like.

'No it didn’t influence punk like they thought it would,' They never intended it too.
Youre taking the title a little bit too literal since its simply a twist on 'The shape of jazz to come' |
It was a finger in the air to a stale scene.

From Wiki...
'In 2003, Kerrang! magazine listed The Shape of Punk to Come at #13 on their 50 Most Influential Albums of All Time list. In 2005, The Shape of Punk to Come was ranked number 428 in Rock Hard magazine's book The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time.[20] In 2013, LA Weekly named it the twelfth best punk album in history.[21] In 2015, the Phoenix New Times named it the fifth best political punk album ever.[22]

The album has sold 179,000 copies in the United States as of June 2015'

hahah It wasnt influential at all though...
