    I pray that they don't mean that god awful "The Touch:Sams theme" hahaha! I think Diggler's cover is even better than that horrible one!

    Anywho, yeah, The Touch baby!

    Other than it being in the '86 movie...how is Dare to be Stupid a geek anthem? You'd think it'd be White 'n Nerdy instead.

    Rightly so.

    I remember my friend reading something about how awful it'd be if they played the Touch at the end of the LaM (Prime and Megatron's fight) or in the Forest scene in RotF (can you just imagine!!!) and he agreed! Clearly I'm the only smart one in that group as I think it would've just been amazing, in a bad sort of way maybe.

    The Touch and Dare still cause me to tingle.......

    :lol 

    The Touch IS the #1 Geek Anthem of all time! The original version of the song, that is.

    On the other hand, I don't see how Weird Al's "Dare to be Stupid" is a geek anthem at all...

    I just hope the 86 Movie never hits the big silver screen again as the website suggested. The death of Optimus Prime would cause so much confusion to new, younger fans. Anyway, on topic, my vote goes for White n' Nerdy. Action figures are cherry FTW!

    i didnt watch the animated movie 'til quite recently and one of the things that struck me was the sheer awfulness of that song, its suits 1980's USA but hardly cybertron.

    Even though "The Touch" is one of my favorite songs, I agree.

    Aww, I still have a sentimental soft spot for that song.
