    I just finished listening to Joe Satriani's "Surfing with The Alien" and noticed how a lot the songs have a certain Transformers sound to them. I think if they got two axe-gods of the 80's Joe Satriani and George Lynch it would be awesome. Lynch is a little more edgy than Santriani, so I think his guitar work would be best suited for Decepticon action scenes. And just instramentals, none of that cheesy singing business. :rock

    Nah, it will be like any other big movie. They'll take the most popular artists at the time and have them do a song or two. I just hope they choose a decent band to do the theme music.

    I'm predicting we get Ja-Rule and 50 Cent (or whoever the crap the kids like these days) rapping about how pimped out their Optimus is or something.

    It probably wouldn't be any worse than the music for Cybertron.

    They would have to include some techno on it too. Maybe DJs remixing songs, like the Spawn soundtrack.

    I'm hoping for John Williams, but that'd be the same as crying for the moon.
    Still, maybe Vince DiCola can provide a piece or two?

    I hope they go with instrumental/symphonic ala Star Wars, Star Trek, etc. Loading it with current bands just so you can market the soundtrack is a bad idea for something like this. That kind of thing works for stuff like Singles or Clerks where the movie and the music are forever linked to when it was made. This needs to be something that can stand the test of time better and not sound horribly dated in five years, let alone 20.

    Williams would be awesome, but I loved the score for the G1 movie so I would try and get Dicola to try and come up with another instrumental rock ballad.

    It can mean both. If you look at the Star Wars soundtrack it's the score of the movie.

    Absolutely no '80s rock, please. If the look, the feel and the entire presence of Transformers is going to be updated in order to be a cash-producing monster, the worst thing we could ever get is a "musical homage" to Vince DiCola or Spectre General or anyone else on the original soundtrack. Don't get me wrong, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Vince DiCola soundtrack - I can nearly hum every theme from the movie - but it has no place in the new, 2007 film.

    My vote is for Hanz Zimmer, ("Bad Boys" or any other Michael Bay film) Don Davis ("The Matrix" series) or David Arnold ("Independence Day" and the recent Bond films.) Their musical style lends itself very well to monstrous explosions and action sequences, and all of those composers know how to create a score that fits well into movies packed with action.

    I'll accept nothing but orchestral/instrumental epic-type music, a la LOTR or SW. John Williams would be a dream come true (my all-time favourite soundtrack artist).

    One thing I don't feel like seeing is rock/metal (and this is coming from a huge rock/metal fan). I know it's an action movie, but using this kind of music would seem a bit cheesy and cliche to me. Oh, and I don't want to see anything even remotely resembling rap/hip-hop in this movie. Sadly, considering that the film is supposed to be a major money-maker, I can totally see them using such music (using scarcely relevant songs from overhyped bands, of course)...

    I love 80s rock and I love the original TF soundtrack! But realistically for the new film I like the techo/symphony mix that films like Matrix have had. Plus a few good rock songs for the top 40, like a remix of the theme song, and a good (but completely new) classic rock sounding song for the closing credits. Preferably by Stan Bush (I can dream), but ultimately something that sounds cool and isn't teenie bopper or rap (unless it's by Will Smith).

    Okay guys. Take everything from the 80's movie, and completely forget about it being featured. If Stan Bush, "The Touch," or Vince D is going to make an appearance, it's going to be very subtle so only the old fans get it.

    They'll go mainstream for the feature. Turn on any rock station and that's what you'll be hearing in the movie.
