    Cool to get some Deftones in there.. but it seems like there are some better more obvious choices... "My Own Summer (Shove It)" being one.

      Also, not offering them separately is still horrible.

        seriously, i wouldn't mind paying for a deftones track (though this track, like you said, not my first choice) but i'd sooner kill myself than pay for anything associated with either A7X or thrice. seriously. ew.

          almost easy is a terrible song. The song they had in GH2 was far superior with much better licks. And yes, A7X is nothing but wasted potential.

      Hole in the Earth is an awesome song, but yeah My Own Summer would have been killer.
