    Ok - which came first? Primus the TF, Primus the band, or Primus the telecommunications group (actually, strike that last one, nobody cares about them or the Primus gas company).

    Do you think Primus inspired the makers of the Primus TF to be Primus, or did Les Claypool really like Primus enough to name his band after a TF god?

    OR, is it all just coincidence?

    Who would win in a fight?

    Enquiring minds want to know.

    Makes you wonder should we ever see Primus in the TF:LA Movie sequel if:
    A. They can even they use the name Primus?
    B. Primus(the band) and the movie producers come to an agreement and work on the movie soundtrack?
    C. Primus the beer will endorse it? :sly:

    Honestly, I don't see a need to actively pursue the name "Primus" for a leader/godlike character in the Transformers Movie series. The name is already well-attached to the band Primus and both a revival of the Transformers in a feature film form and the band Primus are targeted at our age group.

    That's, at least in my opinion, a bit of a name conflict. I'd rather they use another name. Like, for example, they could just use "Magnus" or something like that.

    Yes, I realize that "Magnus" is already attached to Ultra Magnus, but on the slim chance that the transformed version of Cybertron does rear its head in the movie series, I'd rather avoid hearing the idiots in the theatre (read: a bulk of the population) go screaming "Primus? Dude, they ripped off the band!"

    If they hand out free beer and Primus does the soundtrack, the sequel will rock hard. They could even put Wheelie in the damn thing and it would still rock. Well, maybe not Wheelie.

    Depending on how it was used, I can see Primus-style music fitting in quite well to fight scenes and such. It may not be appropriate for the whole thing, but it could be just as good as anything they will use.

    It kind of makes me want to do a Primus/TF music video. Too bad I have zero editing skills.
