A Bayified TRANSFORMERS Theme Rocks Onto The Internets!!

Published at: June 7, 2007, 11:06 a.m. CST by merrick

Merrick again...
Escaping from the highly secured coffers of Sector 7 comes this little ditty: a full song, evidently associated with Michael Bay's TRANSFORMERS movie. It's a riff on the "Transformers - more than meets the eye" theme. I can't seem to locate a damn track listing for the artists contributing to the movie's soundtrack, so I'm not sure who this is. Sounds a bit like Linkin Park, maybe? Maybe not. Correct me, confirm me, etc. in the Talkback below. There are many ways to find it on the site, although you can access a .zip file directly by...

    by PacmanFever

    But it is pretty horrible, to my ears anyway. And you're right it does sound like Linkin Park. Are they even slightly fashionable any more? In better news, Stan Bush will be composing a song for the film! (According to IMDB anyway)

  • June 7, 2007, 11:06 a.m. CST

    why can't I hear it?

    help me!

  • June 7, 2007, 11:07 a.m. CST

    Wow

    by zaggity

    Awful. Sounds like music you'd use during the end credits. Can't imagine they'd use this during the movie.

  • June 7, 2007, 11:07 a.m. CST

    Sounds like Linkin Park or Incubus...

    by DamnYouMB

    I can't tell them apart but it's definitely one of them. I'm ashamed for liking it but oh well, hehe.

  • June 7, 2007, 11:08 a.m. CST

    Blah

    by mondoz2

    Sounds like the singers even know how lame it is. That rap bit is total ass. Other than it just sounding completely craptastic, "They follow their hearts?" They're ROBOTS. They have no hearts. WTF?

  • June 7, 2007, 11:08 a.m. CST

    I think it's Linkin Park.

    by Twitchy McGee

    Esp. with the rapping.

  • June 7, 2007, 11:08 a.m. CST

    I just got off the phone with Linkin Park

    She'd have to record it from her house arrest, though. The "medical injury" is like what the old-school wrestling promotions would do whenever an ace of theirs would go on a tour of Japan; they'd cook up an 'injury' angle to cover for his absence.

    no fucking way

    by FrixFrixFrix

    is this Linkin Park (and it's definitely not Incubus as someone who's obviously never heard Incubus before mentioned). This is some budget ripoff crap made by studio musicians on the cheap. Like those songs in commercials that sound almost like a song you know, but not quite because they couldn't get the rights to the actual song. Or the intro music for Lewis Black's "Back in Black" segment on The Daily Show.

    by wowsah156

    It should have been done like with a full orchestra. That track was just pure laziness. And considering that a lot of fans of the show are in their thirties they expect something a bit more grand and dignified. That track sounds like something you would use in a fast food advert . Not a hollywood blockbuster.

    The rap is terrible. Why not just get Aphex Twin or even Royksopp to do it? Does it have to be "rockin' and rappin'". Or as someone stated above, just remix the movie song. And if you want completely out of left field, get Dave Grohl to take a whack at it. Sheesh... that sucks so bad.

    Aside from the fact that...

    by King_Knut

    ...the whole "electrock" filmscore craze was tired before it even began, this has to be one of the most funereal, mechanical dirges of a tune I have ever heard. Much more so that it's attached to a slam-bang actioner. Radiohead have written a buttload of songs that would be fackin' perfect for a more serious take on Transformers. For example, the haunting "Everything In It's Right Place" might go well over the first Autobot on Earth trying to make sense of his surroundings, Polyethylene Pt II would be a kick-ass closer for the film. Palo Alto, The National Anthem, Optimistic, Ripcord: all would be fantastically suited to a Transformers movie. This tune, on the ohter hand... I could make a more appealing tune teabagging my girlfriend's Shatner and recording the sound as my balls plop in and out of her gaping rusty sheriff's badge.

    by Angelus_420

    I thought it was ok at the beginning but the standard Linkin Park lyrics just made the whole song absolutely suck. From the whole save our souls thing to the naming off the autobots was really weak. If Bay wanted a popular band to perform the song it should have gone to a band that isn't a one trick pony.

HUGE guns. HUGE swords. HUGE missles. it made them what they were.<p>So in hearing weapons are internal and it will only be punching and kicking I must say I'm highly disappointed...therefore...<p>TINO TINO TINO TINO TINO TINO TINO TINO TINO TINO TINO TINO TINO TONO TINO!!!<p>I'm so proud of myself.

    Picking up and using terms and acronyms created by talkbackers makes you anything but "hip" and far from "relevant". TINOs want to be movie producers and create a live-action Transformers movie with nothing but talking robots with 90 min. of constant CGI and expect studios to shell out the 5 billion it will cost to make this movie. <p> By that way, I am excited about most things about this movie and think the things I've seen so far are really neat. Here, I am called a "plant". "Haters" would be those individuals that think the summer movies should be populated with compelling dramas that are rated "R" and make them think deep about their life and society in general and contain no CGI or appeal in any way to women or childeren. <p> Welcome to hell.

    You enter a dark room.

    by MegaJoshX

    In the shadows, you see a Linkin Park cover band. You jump with surprise as the door behind you shuts and locks. An unseen figure knocks you down and you lose consciousness. When you awake, you find that you have been bound and gagged. Your struggling is pointless...mobility a memory. The floor is dirty and covered with splotchy stains that you instinctively know originated from fluids once housed inside the human body. You frantically scan your surroundings and you can see that there's a platform above you, as if the room was set up to be some neo-urban gladiatorial arena. There's a figure seated in a chair, their top half obscured from view. With horror, you realize two things: Terrible acts have occurred here. The Linking Park Cover Band is on the same level that you are...and they're smiling. As they approach, you see that the Linkin Park Cover Band has tightly wrapped their cocks in 10 Base T Cable. Hanging roughly off the tip of each of their blood-filled, grossly abhorrent members is a bladed vocoder...sharp-side out. In abject fear, you look to the figure above - the light has shifted, and you can now see that the person seated is none other than Michael Bay. He's eating a money sandwich with golden bread. You see Michael Bay laugh maniacally as the Linkin Park Cover Band takes turns fucking you in the ear. Then you die and no one ever remembers who you are and every puppy in the world explodes. That's what the Transformers Theme Song from the new movie sounds like.

    Haven't bothered to read the full thread to see if anybody pegged the artist. 100% sure it's not LP. Neither of the voices sound like Mike Shinoda or Chester Bennington.<p> <p> I think that some people are confused because it sounds vaguely like LP's "Points of Authority" track, which probably would've fit with this soundtrack if this song's any indicator.<p> <p> Not a bad ditty on the whole. I certainly could've listened to a full 3:30 of that if they added some more lyrics. It's good in a retro geek sorta way, kinda like the Ramones' cover of the Spider-Man TV theme.

    by Cotton McKnight

    because this song has always been absolutely retarded. It completely dates the cartoon. I could see them doing a split screen thing during the credits where the video matches the lyrics.. like when they do that roll call thing.. they will show optimus, bumblebee, etc. My hypothesis is further proven by the fact that its so short.. my guess is this song will immediately be followed by the instrumental soundtrack.

    Listening to it again...

    by Cotton McKnight

    it sounds like a song that was scored rather than created from thin air. I would be willing to bet that they had the end credits (my theory) in place and they wanted an updated version of the theme song to match whats going on onscreen. its a "valentine" to the fans, as Rick Berman would say.

    by gride9000

    That genra, this song and anyone who makes or is a fan of any of this garbage belongs in the most boring part of purgatory. Fred Durst, Linkin Park, Incubus, Korn and the rest of the "Heavy Cookie Monster meets worst white rap ever" type bands are the reason people now asociate the once respectable term "Rap-Rock" with the terms Wigger-Redneck, Goth-Metal, White-Jihad and Overdoseing Midgits. On the same note, it has also made a mockory of the term "Heavy-Metal". The low tuning of the rythem Guitar does not make up for, hippyesque drum fills (incubus), girly lyrics (Linkin Park), Same Power chords over and over (all of the above). I think we can all make special exceptions for Tool, System of a Down and Rage Againt the Machine. Outside of those guys Hacks.

    by ckone

    Why is this link the latest link that has anything to do with Transformers? What about this little ditty that has been up for days at Superherohype?: ...http://tinyurl.com/2l9b25... This is the one that pissed me off, and I can't help but think there are some underlying reasons why this wasn't posted here. It is Bay, pretty much spitting in the fans' faces. I actually have been flipping back and forth on the issue of this whole contraversy about how they look and the flames and all that crap. I for one was pretty forgiving over the overall look of the characters, realizing that things would change, and that was fine with me, but when I first saw the falmes on Optimus, it just irked me.And the lame reasons WHY irked me more, the whole "it helps to define his parts" crap...and then we get this, Micheal Bay himself saying, "I just wanted flames"...That's utterly rediculous...Optimus DOES NOT NEED FLAMES...he is cool because he is NOT over the top, he is not LOOKING to look cool, he was a big RED Truck with blue underpinings, he was the oldschool LEADER..and that is why he LOOKED cool, cause his design was simple yet strong. No need for "cool" flames or other trinkets other WANNABES put on themselves to LOOK cool, he just WAS COOL. This is crazy, I so shouldn't care about this, BUT when he just goes, well I put flames on him cause I wanted to , after ALLLLLLL the lambasting he got for it, after ALLL the cries to change it , he did it for himself. Next time , don't trot out a full sized flat nosed truck that was RED at the comic con, DONT drag your writers out onto the net professing to love the G1 characters and to be the "voice" of the fans and then completely not listen to what we have to say. This whole thing is their own doing...If they had just stated that this aint gonna be what you grew up with, then it could have been far better accepted, but they really did insult us. And what's worse is I REALLY want to see this, but it's gonna kill me to pay to see big flaming Opty. ARRGGHHH!!!

    by AllPowerfulWizardOfOz

    1st time. Eh, it sort of sucks. But I agree it would only expand traffic to AICN if Harry opened the doorway for a music forum. I mean he already has a solid base of people who visit the site and I understand that passion here is music but thinking in terms of marketing he could capitalize on more revenue for himself and capture a whole new crowd. All he would need to do would be to get a staff of writers who are plugged into the industry and he would be set. Not my site though but yeah it would be great. AICN2?

    Televison is another classic band not credited enough

    by AllPowerfulWizardOfOz

    Christ they started the whole fucking indie sound. Their 1st album still sounds as fresh today as it did in 1977 but they rarely get any credit what so ever for how much influence they had. And have to throw T-Rex in there. First new wave album is arguably "dandy in the underworld" for it's use of synths mixed with pop rock.

  • June 7, 2007, 2:56 p.m. CST

    I like GG and The Mentors because of how fucked they

    by RevSick

    are, they're shitty bands, but I just get a laugh out of how fucked up both guys are. El Duce was fucking hilarious, but both bands are musically craptastic, but that's cause they were to high/drunk to play for shit. Minor Threat is great btw.

  • June 7, 2007, 2:58 p.m. CST

    FUCKING LOVE COIL!!!!

    by RevSick

    Love's Secret Domain is one of my favorite industrial albums, but you can't find their shit anywhere except their own website for mp3 downloads. And another great shoegazer band is This Mortal Coil btw.

    The Church

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    HWCBN & AllPowerfulWizardOfOz - do either one of you have their second most recent release, "Uninvited Like the Clouds"? It's yet another return to guitar form and easily contains 2 or 3 of their best songs in years. They've been around forever now and it's so impressive that they are still making vital, atmospheric rock music.<P>I hope they start a North America tour soon. As soon as they hit my area, I'm there. I could use my fix of Willson-Piper/Koppes guitar wizardry.

  • June 7, 2007, 3:01 p.m. CST

    Television?

    by Colonel Activity

    Didn't they have an album called Marquees Moon or something? And didn't Richard Hell get kicked out and then he founded The Voidoids? Something like that, right? And then there was The Heartbreakers with Johnny Thunders, right? I'm just guessing.

  • June 7, 2007, 3:01 p.m. CST

  • June 7, 2007, 3:04 p.m. CST

    Also check out Coil's unreleased Hellraiser soundtrack

    by AllPowerfulWizardOfOz

    They were hired out before Christopher Young to do the soundtrack but Clive Barker though that the music was to over the top and never used any of the music for the movie. It's available out there, I know because I own it. Worth picking up if you can find it.

    Asses

    by Breadocide

    Most of you guys are retarded, going all cry baby and shit over a song. "OMG IT IS SO TEH SUX WUT AM I GONNA DO WIT MYSELF!!111" The Transformers had mouths and noses and fucking danced on an alien world to a Weird Al song--if I paid ten dollars to see a Transformers movie and it turned out to be two hours of Michael Bay shitting all over first edition Optimus Prime toys, mint condition Transformers comic books and finished by punching Peter Cullen's head right off his shoulders, it would be a million times better than that shit we used to watch when we didn't even know how to use forks. In closing, whoever said "You don't have to believe me but I am in the music industry. My sources confirmed that this is LP. I know you will call bullshit on me but whatever. I don't care." is a dickhead. "I'm in the music industry." You probably work at FYE, you fucking schlub. It brings me great joy to think about how many of you cried yourselves to sleep when you found out Optimus had flames--it's not that big a deal, get over it. Acting like someone pushed you in the mud or something. Whiny little girls.

    For those above...

    by Phazer

    Who suggested they should have got Paul Oakenfold to do it, he did the theme to the last Transformers cartoon series. It was, if anything, even fucking worse than this. Which is amazingly difficult. He phoned it in, big style. Not that this makes this anything other than embarrassing. And missing out the name of one Autobot so you can reuse the song on the sequel doesn't signpost anything. No siree.

    If this reminded anyone else of that 1989 Ninja Turtles Movie Soundtrack but seanny_d pretty much summed it up. <p> It's lame in a way that is totally fitting for this lame film. <p> Yes, there isn't much to work with but you know they could have just had someone slightly talented create an orchestral score based on the original theme that would have probable sounded billions of time better or "Not Lame" as it were.

    by mister9

    Yes it LINKIN PARK. You can also hear another song from Minutes to Midnight playing at the beginning of the last trailer as Sam's dad is driving him to get Bumblebee. All You fanboys can complain and bitch and Moan all you FUCKING want to but guess what bitches...YOU HAD YOUR FUCKING CHANCE TO MAKE SOMETHING OF YOUR LIVES AND BECOME FILMMAKERS LONG AGO! I have no doubt that every tranformers fan has some "vision" of what they think the "PERFECT" Tranformers movie would be...But instead of doing something about it all you can do is hate on someone else who actually found their balls and followed their dreams. Micheal Bay is a Great Filmmaker anyone who disagrees can suck on Steven Spielbergs' balls because he has faith in Bay and So do I. Have any of you negative fucks even watched those cartoons lately? THey were ridiculously cheesy especially the cartoon movie. So shut your punk asses Up and stand in line opening night like your gonna do anyways buy some Milk Duds,Popcorn,and Cherry COke Sit Back Relax and just fucking ENJOY SOMETHING COOL FOR ONCE IN YOUR SO-CALLED LIFE!!

    by David Lazarus Long

    It's big fucking robots thrashing shit, not big fucking robots crying at a group therapy session. I second that it should have been power metal. Real fucking hard and fast. With lots of explosions. <p> I'm beyond thinking about whether this movie will be good or bad or whatever, it's just gonna be what it's gonna be and I'll end up watching it. This is definitely more of a "credits" song than an intro theme. Too fucking slow and depressing. It's the "wind-down" song after you just saw two hours of shit blowing up. <p> Oh, and the OG TF Movie theme may have been cheesy, but it was pitch perfect for the tone of the movie. Unless I have some serious misconceptions about the type of film Bay is making, this decidedly does not. <p> BAH WHEEP GRAH NA WHEEP NINI BONG O_O;

Suck my balls Linkin Park or Linkin Park wannabe's. Linkin Park can suck my balls anyway. Bring back Lion. I am going to slaughter a small middle class family because of this song.

    3rd...

    by starscream1

    or is it 4th time posting? I don't remember. I only signed up at AICN to support the handful of, long time posters, calling the film on all of it's legitimate problems. That being said, I listened to the song before reading even one post. It got my heart going. Yeah, in an 80's nostalgic kind of way. Is it cheesy? Yes. Does it pay homage to the original theme song? Definitely! It's not bad. Sure the lyrics are a little cheeseball but, there is a definite sense of respect for the Transformers of the 80's. On another note, I was pretty pleased with the Optimus/Bonecrusher clip from the other day. You know, I can live with (not forgive... but live with) flames on Optimus and Megatron and Starscream looking unbelievably unrecognizable if and I mean a big IF they get the characterizations right. Speaking of that, do we even know who's voicing Starscream yet? There was an article on Dark Horizons about them asking Howard Stern to voice Soundwave. I wouldn't be surprised if they got someone pretty good for Starscream. Wow! Could it be possible that this movie, miraculously, has come together to be something decent? At this point all I'm asking for is something along the lines of the original X-men. It doesn't have to be spectacular. Just get the characters right. I think I can live with everything else and wait for a killer sequal.

    by jfp2007

    Wouldn't be surprised if this pops up at The End. Sounds kind of like old school Linkin' Park. They've been more melodic and less rap metal at least when it comes to their radio singles the past few years. The part where they start naming off the names could have been done without. Not bad.

    by Neo Zeed

    They are an indie rock band. It's like saying The Killers sound like Limp Bizkit. It's not motherfucking mutemath. Check put their myspace page for songs or amazon. They don't have nu-metal guitar or schreeching vocals interspersed with pussified raps. They are just a normal rock band. If it's not Linkin Park (which is a stretch because it sounds just like that stupid song of theirs "In The End")then it's definitely not mute math.

Everyone has to start somewhere, and the music that's been coming out of the indie world the past 5 years or so is outstanding and shows us how pitiful most of the crap from the 90s really was.

    by TallBoy66

    -is going to be sick. Check out this live performance: http://tinyurl.com/3af2yj (the whole show is pretty amazing and very bootleged, try to check it out). Also look for "Bleeding the Orchid". The album will probably be alot of long-ish metal jams, probably different from Tarantula's "Death-Meatl-Meets-Pop" style. I don't mind that Iha is gone, anyway, Corgan re-recorded a shitload of his stuff for Siamese Dream, anyway, and he just looked flat-out bored and uncaring by the end of the MACHINA tour. The bassists are bloody interchangable by this point. Oh, and I think "Doomsday Clock" by SP is going to be on the TF soundtrack.

    Oh, and "Bleeding the Orchid" acoustic verison

    by TallBoy66

    Sorry, I'm in SP geek out mode, (I do that from time to time) but, anyway, here's an acoustic version of that song I mentioned before. The only drawback is how Corgan's crotch is centred in the middle of the frame, but, hey, waddya gonna do: http://tinyurl.com/2oyvss

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    And no one has topped Jakes Nel's idea that Bay sing the theme himself ("write the feem toon, sing the feem toon..."). Good work, Jakes Nel, that was funny as hell. Trouble is, by that process of association that happens when your brain skips from one thing to another, I now have the theme to The Fall Guy stuck in my head. One, two, three, four:<p>"Well, I'm not the kind to kiss and tell, but ah've been seen with Farraaaaaah!"

  • June 8, 2007, 6:51 a.m. CST

    Enh... not so great

    by BizarroJerry

    Seems like the easy, obvious way to do a modern "isn't this cool" cover of the song. I'm just hoping the music in the actual movie includes some orchestral, John Williams-esque variations on the old theme, and this rap crap is kept 'til the credits. There's really no excuse for not somehow having that theme as incidental music in the flick. Other than the usual "creative" inability to not fiddle with everything.

    I have been called a TF 'Apologist'..

    by Pawprint

    I haven't even bothered listening to this, and if I had it wouldn't put me off watching the film. Let's be honest - who really gives a shit about film soundtracks for summer films these days anyway? They're all full of nu-metal shite which makes me want to burst my own ear-drums with a rusty knitting needle. However bad this is, lyrically it can't be much worse than that horrid piece of dog-toffee by Nickelback of the Spider-Man OST. I'm sorry, but all those who are saying/whining that they won't watch the film because this song is crap, were probably never gonna watch it in the first instance; also, saying that makes you sound like petulant children stamping your feet and crossing yours arms - which I suspect many of you are. Let's face it; TF isn't going to be a fucking musical is it? Chances are, if this song IS in the film we'll only hear a background snippet, or it'll be over the end credits - which won't matter, because the majority of people will be leaving. Fucking catch yourselves on you overly-dramatic idiots.

    People do argue about music you know. Most of us are disparaging this because we don't like it, regardless of it's connection to Transformers. Remember how Talkbackers slagged of "You Know My Name" even though they liked the movie.

    by Pawprint

    I think bongo123's comments are more aimed at the immature adolescents on here who are deciding not to see the film on the basis of a song which they probably won't even notice in the film (if it's there at all). I mean, as I said, I hate the Nickelback song from Spider-Man, but I can't ever remember actually hearing it during the film, so my mild enjoyment of Spider-Man was in no way impeded. Even if this song IS in the film, as I said it will only be an incidental snippet. It's not like the TF's are just going to stop mid-battle while the entire song is played from start to finish at top volume, then just carry on fighting. Fucking jesus...

    by PacmanFever

    In general I think life is too short (and there are too many more important things) to get TOO worked up about a "bad" movie. If that's how someone wishes to spend their time, that is their decision, but I think I agree with you guys on this one and I withdraw my comments.

    by bongo123

    exactly Pac, the way people get worked up about movies/directors on these TB's to me verges on the insane, when someone constantly berates a movie vehemently day in and day out without actually seeing the thing, you gotta assume the fucker is a mentalist. and this board is full of fucking mentalists (me, paw and yourself excluded) i mean, its a fucking movie, so you loved the cartoon, you were a kid then get over it, but nope they cant get over an 80's cartoon or the fact that MBay has made a few crap movies, whats that tell you.. I absolutley love the Thing, best horror movie ever.. when i heard they were remaking my holy grail i didnt go fucking apeshit or panic, i went cool, get to see some shapeshifting alien kick some ass again cause although the thing is a fucking great movie, its just that.. a fucking movie.

    by revunit001

    ...again. This song is absolutely terrible. I hope, for Bay's sake, that the studio picked this version of the theme and forced him to incorporate it into the film as opposed to him choosing it himself. Either way, another bad creative decision.

    Dude!!! Please dont put this song anywhere near this movie!!!! This is way too cheesy!! The original song didnt have this much blue cheese in it!

Now if you want agression grab the new Neurosis, it's got that extra third nut heaviness to it. Also I found the new album by the Devin Townshend Band to be a hillarious take on death metal check it out! By the by Messi have you heard any of the Mr. Bungle Demo Tapes?

    by RevSick

    but I also listen to the Boredoms and alot of John Zorn's noise projects like Painkiller, but I find Neurosis to be some of the most listenable metal out there frankly. But will admit they've gotten heads and shoulders better with the addition of Steve Albini as producer.

TOB, I think you'd be hard pushed to destroy a retarded six-year old in an intellectual debate. Messi, what gives you the right to comment on and/or insult anyone because of their musical preferences? I'm guessing you are one of these ridiculously snobby twats who listens to bands no-one has ever heard of, until they become popular - just so you can then make yourself feel superior by saying you liked them first and now you think they've 'lost it'.

The Mortal Kombat theme by Utah Saints was cheesy but at least it had a pulse. This Mutemath tune sounds like something that should play after a question is asked on a gameshow like Jeopardy.

    The Real Song Sucks Too

    They should've just gone with an orchestral instrumental. This song and the real one by Mutemath both blow horrendously.
