No Lockdown played before Giant Bomb at Nite 2018?

I really feel like Lockdown was a big part of Giant Bomb E3 shows. It acted as a type of anthem to our favorite Giant Bomb E3 aftershows. I understand that new video production staff involves some changes, but the exclusion of Lockdown shouldn't be one of them (In my opinion, as a subscriber)

I'm all for the different royalty free music that has been used in the production recently. But to me Lockdown is a Giant Bomb staple.

They played it non-stop before every conference up to this point. I think they've more than given us our Lockdown fill.

This has been the case for several years now though. Lockdown might be in the mix, but it hasn't been just Lockdown for quite awhile.

It's fine. They'll play it later.

You all have points. Perhaps I just need to take my nostalgia glasses off.

Last year the would randomly play Lockdown in the nite show rotation. The press conferences played nothing but Lockdown.

Lockdown will come.

It's probably OK that they don't play the same 3 minute song 100 times in a row.

Let's agree to agree that the guy in chant demanding they turn down the break music because it's late is hilarious.

If it means a transition into dusty hip-hop beats and This Synthetic Life, I will dig the grave for Lockdown myself.

They just played Lockdown. I take everything back.

Thank you, it felt good.

Just a guess here, but part of the reason might be that for the last couple years they have been listed on Gamespot's E3 schedule grid as the afterhours entertainment. A wider audience might be tuning in, so playing Lockdown on repeat might be a little off-putting to those not in on the joke.

They played it multiple times.

Multiple times isn't enough though.

If we're going to get upset at anything, it should be that Ghetto Bird has completely fallen out of the rotation. It was the perfect break song! (Unless it played while I wasn't watching, in which case ignore me.)

@flashflood_29: The music selection this E3 is amazing and it's no coincidence that Jan is on this year.

Honestly, I was really tired of non stop Lockdown. I'm glad they mixed it up. It's fine to keep it in the rotation but it doesn't need to dominate the playlist.

I like Synthetic Life, but there's regular streams throughout the year for that.

Non-stop Lockdown during E3 is tradition.
