    I don't know if anyone's mentioned this before or even thought of it, but I think it would be really great if "The Touch" made it into the new movie somehow

    Stan Bush "The Touch" video

    I don't care if they put the original on the radio in the background or make fall out boy cover it, just put the damn song in the movie.

    anyone else agree?

    No. GOD no. Leave the anthemic hair metal in the 80s, for the love of Primus. It worked in the original, but not for a movie nowadays. Unless it was being played on a radio, as you suggested.
    Although if someone killed Fallout boy and put THAT in the film, I wouldn't mind.
    And yes; Weird Al should be in the movie somewhere.

    You know, it's kind of creepy that you just posted this. I was just in the shower whistling this song wondering if they could put this into the movie as some kind of easter egg. Like have a 2 second sound byte of it when Bumblebee is changing radio stations or sometjing.

    Sorry buddy, if the fans won't leave Cullen in the 80s, theres no sense in leaving The Touch in the 80s.

    If it's being played on the radio in the movie that's fine.But as an ACTUAL song in the movie,I don't think so.

    That song's WAY too retro and while it might make fanboys happy.It'll most likely make the general audience roll their eyes in shame.

    Cullen would still sound superb as Prime. the Touch, however, is an unbelievably dated slice of 80s metal. Big difference.

    Dude, Nowadays, They remake and remix every 80's song. Not saying that they are all any good, some, but not all. They could easily do that with this song and make it for the movie. But I agree on the "easter egg" concept. Have it come on the radio when the bumblebee starts up the first time in the movie.

    I know that,I've heard some of them.

    But the majority of the time when a classic song is remixed it's horrid
