Starfield and Imagine Dragons have collaborated on a new single titled "Children of the Sky." However, given that it is Imagine Dragons, the overall reaction has been mostly: "This song is simply rubbish."
"Cancel my pre-order," commented @Schilling_Spree immediately. "Thanks for the warning. I almost bought Starfield," said @databasemanimal. "The game looks great, but the song is so bad," @DeadBryam remarked. "No, please don't," said @Knate98.
The announcement was shared on social media by Starfield and Bethesda, with the latter stating, "We are honored that Imagine Dragons drew inspiration from Starfield for their new single 'Children of the Sky'." In this context, inspiration likely means dollar bills and a marketing deal. This was accompanied by a compilation video showcasing several planets we will be visiting next week. However, the comments quickly got flooded with reactionary GIFs and people mocking Imagine Dragons. Truly, the Nickelback of our time.
To explain why people hate Imagine Dragons, let's take a look at a few responses to a question posted on the music subreddit two years ago.
"Generic trash," said PattyIce32. "Their songs are soulless, they all sound the same, and they are overplayed."
"Overexposure," said PixelLumi. "The fact that they are played everywhere and that their most popular song is their extremely minimalist song 'Thunder' instead of one of their better songs, contributes to them being one of the most hated bands in the music industry."
Therefore, any mention of them is usually accompanied by groans and comments like, "That's awful!" It's the usual reaction. Undoubtedly, in ten years, another band will take their place and be considered "okay." For now, we have comment threads on social media related to Starfield, solidifying this sentiment, such as @SpectreSaunders' comment: "I'm really excited about the game, but... Imagine Dragons? Seriously? This is the first Starfield debacle I'm seeing."
"That goes so hard when the sound is off," said @MischiefsYT. "Dude, you can't even escape Imagine Dragons when you go to space," said @Skarrow9. "It's truly impressive how they manage to make the same song over and over again," said @argkitsune.
This is not the first time Imagine Dragons has collaborated closely with a video game project. They previously worked with JID on a song called "Enemy" for the League of Legends Netflix series Arcane. "Is Imagine Dragons only making promotional music for games now?" asked @Mandarino__.
