    Has anyone else heard the new Transformers theme made for the movie?



    Most of the Youtube comments say the song is horrible, but I can't stop listening to it. I love it.

    And why am I getting so excited about the Transformers movie when I know its going to be bad? [​IMG]

    Donno...maybe it would have been better off if Linkin Park sang it or something...just seems to miss that...spark that the original Transformers Movie theme song had.

    Still awesome all the same.

    That's the original movie theme, they just redid it. There's another theme that goes more with the TV show that is performed by Linkin Park.

    I much prefer the Lion version from the original movie.

    The Lion version.

    Here is the Linkin Park version. Bleh. I can't stand Linkin Park.



    EDIT: Oh someone who sounds like Linkin Park. Whatever.

    Doesn't sound anything like Linkin Park to me. Although I can imagine that version being done by LP and sounding a lot better.

    But really, I'm sick of the song and wish they would stop doing covers/remixes and come up with something new.

    Imagine if the OST was released and it was nothing but covers. [​IMG]

    I think that Transformers and live action should not go together.

    But this movie is not targeted at me, it is targeted at a newer generation of kids who will buy a newer generation of toys, then in the next movie they’ll kill of some characters and make some new ones and then they will have to buy new toys.

    Damn that song sucks. [​IMG] Sounds like he can't sing at all. I hope they redo the song before it comes out.

    They all kinda suck.
    1st one... gah! too emo, right?
    Lion... better but, hair band much?
    Linkin' Logs... beats the rest, but ONLY because of the vocoder.

    (vocoders FTW!!!)

    I like them both. There were always new TF themes and stories that were completely different from G1.

    I always expect huge changes since Hasbro is a toy company and has to always make new editions. As long as the characters keep their personalities it's all good.

    they all sucked. but since the lion version was part of the original g1 series, and that is my favourite series by far i say that one is the best of the three. i still like the g1 season 1 classic opening best. you cant beat a classic.

    I think it might be LP and SoB (Styles of Beyond)
    This is my favorite version however (even over the original theme)

    Edit - This theme really kicks all kinds of ass. I found out that this is actually an early version of the theme for the movie. Hopefully it will be included as a b-side on itunes or some special edition of the official soundtrack.

    For anybody who's interested I uploaded the LPish version of the song here -

    All this new age punk/rock music.... Where's The Touch when you need them for some good 'ol Transformers loving? [​IMG]

    BTW: The Lion's theme fits in really well, THAT ought to be the real successor.

    Linkin park new single is in the movie, dont see what the fuss is about

    that single is decent, but that group make totally different music to linkin park...
    Black Lab is more aimed at adults, linkin park is more aimed at youth

    Personally I dont like movies which play alot of songs, garfield is probery the worst iv seen of this
