    How come I don't see a remix of the transformers theme?

    Also is the traditional theme gonna be in DOTM? Because, I think it's time for Bay to include it.

    No offence, but I checked out that song too, and it is pretty generic. Just sounds like boring alt. rock/numetal stuff, like pretty much any other dual-vocal hard rock band of the early 2000s. Just a weaker version of Evanescence or Lacuna Coil :/

    That said I can see why it appeals to you, I mean, if their lyrics are meaningful to you then I suppose it would be uplifting in a way, but it's just way too boring for me. But as you said, music is subjective, so you shouldn't really get upset at other people disliking your favourite band.

    And as a metalhead for 15 years, with a collection of thousands of bands, let me just say that I've only ever heard ONE good Christian rock/metal band: Vengeance Rising, which is oldschool thrash metal and (sadly) probably won't appeal to the majority of Christian music fans lol :p

    I have a Five Iron Frenzy cover of a Vengeance Rising song. :lol  Not a long one though: Receive Him.

    *edit* Confirming links worked while posting about/ linking to this post, I learned that some of the titles for songs on DotM have been slightly changed. ex.: Alive & Awake (Remix) to Awake & Alive (Rock Radio Mix). Also, a 5th song was added to the player.
    Just updating for accuracy.

    Paramore and Linkin Park are average, the rest sucks. Big question, why the hell isn't Stan Bush on that list? The 1986 movie had the best soundtrack and you all know it, music was better back then and I wasn't even born at that point.

    I have the feeling that since the title is reversed (Alive & Awake - the Official Album Site is now up, & shows it like that, as well as everything else I've ran across), that it's a completely new Remix, special for DotM. & with Skillet, that Remix can be absolutely ANYTHING.

    w00 Skillet!!!!!!





    well said! Skillet is one of my favorite bands but if they dont catch everybody's fancy well thats perfectly fine. people like what they like


    the only time i start having problems is when people hate on it just cuz they're a "christian band"

    when people become christians is there this magical thing that happens that they all the sudden are unable to write and perform great music?
    i dont think so


    if you dont like 'em thats fine.

    but they're song is still on the CD at the end of the day ;)

    No offense dude but your trying to whiz up a rope with a lot of the Skillet haters. In my experience those that hate a Christian band on really hate them for the fact that they are Christian. Strip away that label and on any ordinary day they wouldn't take issue with them one iota. From what I've seen, that group of individuals seems to think somewhere in their twisted sense of thought if they listen to it long enough they will turn into a Bible thumper.

    Take it how you will, just my two cents on the matter. I primarily listen to Christian music but will listen to secular depending on the content. I also do not limit myself to any particular style instead going from Gregorian chants to metal. On that note I leave this...

    Maybe you're getting called out because you dont say "well personally i dont like this band/ song/ whatever" Instead you're trashing bands that lot of people enjoy i'm sure if you said "well i really dont like alot of these bands" you wouldnt catch nearly as much hell, though i respectfully 1000000% disagree completely with your taste in music... personally of course :)

    Ok I see where people are coming from about sklllet. I have never heard them and I do like the song for it's lyrics. And it seems to me anyway that this song is about the relationship between sentinel and optimus. Sentinel obviously is going to wake up and maybe he gives optimus a reason to help the humans even after they lied to him.

    Looks like I'll be turning the sound down or putting my fingers in my ears if the MCR track gets played in the movie.

    A more vacuos waste of space I can't think of

    I'm wondering why there's nothing from The Used on it... We had The Used on the soundtracks for the last two, why not this one? Any ideas?

    I can see how you might believe that, and in the case of some metalheads it might be true, but in my case and the case of a lot of my friends, it's just that Christian bands seem, to me, to usually be rather hollow and not musically adventurous. They stick to what sells musically, and just "holies up" the lyrical content, in other words.

    I mean, as I said, I like Vengeance Rising (and another Christian thrash metal band, Mortification, from Australia) because they are musically still original and hardcore, regardless of what they sing about. So I'm not just hating on Christian music in it's entirety.

    And this is somebody who will listen to anything to a degree, from progressive rock to hip-hop to hardstyle trance to the most blasphemous black metal.

    The high concept has a lot to answer for - ie shitty soundtracks like this. I miss the days when a movie's soundtrack actually had some impact on the film, instead of record sales.

    I guess we have Bruckheimer/Silver to thank for that... so I won't bother complaining about the awful awful bands on show here.
