anyway, its a clip from VH1's Sex Rehab which aired in 2009. In one episode, part of a track from Urban Assault is used for the background music.
As far as I know, the UA background music is loop based, so to my knowledge, they re used the loops. How Long does the song go for?

About a minute i'd say. Check out the video, I put the whole scene up. Then I put a portion of the UA track up for comparison. Definitely the same track, although it seems they added some background noises and sound effects before they put it in UA.

Not really, they could be on the public domain. if not they assumed that they would get away from it as no-one plays this game anymore, except us and a few others I suppose...

Very nice and interesting! I know the UA soundtrack composer was Mark Snow (the composer of X-Files soundtracks), and he's very famous. So, maybe, they called him for a music background for that VH1 Sex Rehab, it might be possible.

I thought In-Game music composer was a german, Sylvius Lack.

Mark Snow is listed on imdb.com as being involved with Urban Assault, although Sylvius Lack also worked on the game.

I'm sure the soundtrack is public domain by now, and that's why VH1 got to use it. I just find it interesting that SOMEONE must have listened to that track while playing UA and thought 'hey, lets use this in our show' lol. Unless they did contract Snow, and he simply offered some old tracks he did. Still interesting either way.

Very much so, or we could simply get the legal teams going and make a quick buck...

i think its kind of odd that they are using the UA music for something that isnt..as dark as the UA setting
vh1 doesnt have the heartbeat
