Spotify is a desktop application that allows you to listen to any music you like, whenever you like, full albums if you wish — it’s legal and free. It has recently put online the Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack so you can listen to the whole thing through from New Divide to Cheap Trick!
Harking back to the original theme tune, Cheap Trick have recorded a recreation of the 1980s “Transformers, transformers, more than meets the eye” number. It has lovingly been placed on YouTube for us to enjoy in all its cheesy glory:

Michael Bay recently noted that Steve Jablonsky and Linkin Park were working on the Transformers 2 score. Jablonsky scored the first movie and Linkin Park also appeared on that film’s official soundtrack.
BREAKING NEWS: Linkin Park will be working on the score for Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen.
Although I wasn’t at liberty to say it before, the song I’ve been referencing here on mikeshinoda.com in the past few weeks…is actually being done for Michael Bay’s new Transformers film, due out June 24th.
In addition–and probably ever cooler–we have been offered the unique opportunity to help score the film. The song we wrote is being used as one of the themes, and we will be writing various interpolations on that theme, and trying out some other thematic ideas as part of the (very large) team scoring the film.
My bandmates and I are working with award-winning film composer (and resident ass-kicker) Hans Zimmer. We met with Hans last week, and heard some of the incredible things he and his guys have done with our new song. In the next few days, we’ll be doing some work with Hans’ amazing writing and recording crew.
Michael Bay has shown us select scenes from the film, and it looks incredible. I can’t wait for you to see it.
