    I Think the movie should go Heavy Metal with music from Megadeth, They can write good lyrics and know how to create great instrumental tracks.:rock

    Orchestral, although I can imagine a lot of techno type stuff might make it in there, or maybe some rock. Then again, we're pretty likely to end up with top 40 shit, rap songs, and lame pop-rock.

    The "ethnic-drums-meets-symphony" style of symphonic music that's been showing up in movies recently would, in my opinion, match the Transformers movie really well. If somebody like Bear McCreary (current Battlestar Galactica TV series) or Don Davis (the orchestral parts of The Matrix films, various Bond films) did the soundtrack, I think they'd be able to hit the right mix of powerhouse main themes and boom-thumping techno for both good and bad guys.

    Industrial techno. No cheesy rock, no nu-metal crap, and NO BLOODY METALLICA. They haven't done anything any good in years.

    100 % Agreed. Some japanese drums added to the mix.

    (I just hope they donĀ“t make any Transformers Theme -Reggaeton mix for us the latin crowd)

    Industrial, electronic music has always seemed to fit Transformers for me because the ARE electronic. I said this in the "what bands" thread but I'd like Wumpscut.

    Exactly my thoughts :eek: 

    Anyway, I hope for an orchestral/electronic original score. I really hope they don't include a bunch of mainstream bands, though I know that more than likely it's going to happen.

    Vanilla Ice, a la TMNT 2.

    If he is not available, make it ambiguous. Classical / rock. Not Will Smith/Nelly what ever.

    A big mistake that is in current films is the commercialization of every aspect. The songs should be part of the movie, not overshadow it.

    I agree that it's lame to commercialize so much, but it's pretty much inevitable, especially with a big money blockbuster family friendly action-epic film, which Transformers is aiming to be. Expect to see Autobot logos all over every other item in Wal-Mart next year by spring time, and lame asss music videos on MTV of Nickelback playing a concert inside Optimus Prime's chest or what the hell ever.

    A symphonic orchestra score or maybe industrial/techno would fit nicely for this movie.

    Orchestral/Techno with guitars for good measure. Take The Matrix for example. "Clubbed To Death" would sooo work in this film.

    Symphonic/orchasta type of music should be used in the movie.

    I'd like to see one of these composers do it:

    John Williams, Harry-Gregson Williams, Danny Elfman, Klaus Badelt, Don Davis, or Alan Silvestri.

    They need to get Trent Reznor to put it together....

    They need to use a ton of Industrial Music! People like NIN, KMFMDM, ORGY!

    Rock TOOL, Lacuna Coil, Velvet Revolver!

    PUNK ROCK

    Orchestral and/or Industrial would work well.

    I'd like to see something grand and orchestral, but at the same time mechanical and maybe a little more techno. No bands, nothing that will sound too jarring. Just something that will fit the mood of the different scenes and sound suitably grand.

    SO agreed. Rob Dougan would be an awesome choice. Get him together with Trent Reznor, Marylin Manson (who did an outstanding job on Resident Evil), Jack Dangers, and listen to the magic.
