    I don't understand what's the connection between Linkin Park and the TF movies. Why are they still back for another song? Is Bay a Linkin Park fan? Do you think they'll do a song for the third movie?

    Yeah Michael Bay has said he loves them. As do I so Im biased. But the soundtrack this time around isnt that great. Except for LP and Green Day. The cheap trick version sucks

    The main song from the movie will be New Divide from Linkin Park.. Thats the connection.. Just like in the first movie, Linkin Park's music will be the main music from the movie...

    And it sounds great too.. Been listening to it...

    the main song for the first oen was goo goo dolls, there video had transformers in it linkin parks didnt, unless ya watched the video like i did and assigned a transformer to everything that appeared on screen lol

    i guess its just coz he is a fan, and now the music style is just them, like they have become associated with it... like paramore and *shudder* twilight

    Do not ever compare ANYTHING to the horrible, wrongly conceived, uncreative, teenybooper NONSENSE that is Twilight. Vampires are supposed to be vicious monsters, not tragic lovers. Sure, Angel and that Lestat fruit led the way, but at least MOST vampires in those universes were not people you hung around with. Angel was even a badass himself when you took his soul away.

    And the plot. Girl moves to town, she is instantly popular. She sees pretty boy, doesn't like him. Boy saves her and they talk. Turns out he is a vampire. Some of his vampire friends try to eat her. He stops them with minimal effort. SPARKLES!!!!!!!!!! The end! My (future) sister-in-law read the books and liked them for about a minute.

    From what I remember, the guys in Linkin Park are TF Fans and when they were asked to lend a song to the soundtrack, they were more than happy to do so.

    I'm gonna go ahead and give this thread a massive "MEH!" and say that all the music in the movie should be orchestrated by Steve Jablonsky. Orchestrated music always gives things a far more epic feel than any other kind can hope to aspire.

    LP approached Megan Fox during one of there concerts back stage. As Megan Fox is a fan of them and they are fans of Transformers they asked if one of there songs could be featured in the film which would be 'What I've Done'. Megan then asked some favors and it was used during the scene when Sam is dropping Mikaela off at her house and during the ending credits. It's use was received so well Bay asked them to compose a song as the theme for the second film.

    Linkin Park has always been TF fans; I remember seeing them in 2001 and alot of their equipment had TF decals all over it.
