Because there's so much more to French dance music than "Sexy Bitch"...



Yesterday UEFA made the shock announcement that David Guetta will be soundtracking Euro 2016 pretty much in its entirety. Apparently he's doing everything from the official song to the music you'll actually hear pumped around the stadium at the matches - like the playlister for an IRL game of FIFA. It seems David's hit the motherload and he's either the most well connect man in France, or some sort of ultra wizard.

Granted, he’s probably France’s biggest musical export, but he’s by no means their best. As 2016 will be the 15th edition of the European Cup, we thought it'd be a fun game to come up with 15 French artists that we think could do a better job than our man Guetts. Then, because that took about ten nanoseconds, we did a bonus round too.
