Likewise, these songs are also an important part of the Guardians of the Galaxy video game. Here’s what Steve Schabowski, who is the senior audio director of the game, shared in the above video:

“The music it’s definitely infused in the DNA of this game, the guardians are pretty much a rock-and-roll band. They are a band of misfits that found each other and have a common goal. With guardians, the music goes beyond what a normal score and soundtrack would do. It’s like rock-and-roll, man! It’s the sights, it’s the sounds, it’s the smells. The ones who get it, they get it here.”
