Riot Games Releases Worlds 2021 Official Song “Burn it All Down”
Every year, Riot Games releases an official music video for the League of Legends Worlds Championship. This year’s track is “Burn it All Down” which features lead vocals from music group PVRIS. The three-and-a-half minute music video showcased some of the best players who will be heading to Worlds 2021 as well as some well-known players who failed to make it to the event. The video has reached nearly 2.5 million views in just a mere ten hours since its release. The heavy techno track has been well received by fans. The world championship is set to kick off next week on 5th October, 2021.
There will be no supplemental tracks to the official Worlds anthem
In the last three years, Riot Games featured League of Legends’ in-game bands K/DA and True Damage with a supplemental track for their events. Fans would have loved a track by Pentakill, the in- game band which made a return this year after a long hiatus. Riot Games’ music department has been pushing out tons of new tracks for fans in recent months with popular tracks of the likes of Lightbringer’s acoustic version and Lost Chapter.
“Burn it All Down” features countless pro League players who have been a part of Worlds events along with some of this year’s players. EDward Gaming AD Carry Park "Viper" Do-hyeon, DWG KIA mid laner Heo "ShowMaker" Su, Hanwha Life Esports mid laner Jeong "Chovy" Ji-hoon along with other players who will be participating this year have been included in this year’s music video.
Players like TSM’s Tristan "PowerOfEvil" Schrage, G2 Esports’ AD Carry Martin "Rekkles" Larsson were featured in the music video despite them not making it to the championship. Rekkles may not be a part of Worlds next year either as a consequence of G2 reportedly selling off the player’s contract. The player was supposed to attend the 2021 Worlds group draw show on 22nd September as a special guest but he was replaced by Marcin "Jankos" Jankowski.
