Linkin Park on TF2

04.27.2009

Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park has revealed that he and his band will be working on the score to TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN with Hans Zimmer. On his blog, he said:

"... 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."

Which is fine by me. Five years ago I would have hated this, but I no longer have to go to school with people who heard "One Step Closer" and then would argue to the death like a knight in olden times, that Linkin Park was the greatest band in the history of the world and anything before it. Several years later, these same people, as I graduated, would receive a new Messiah in Evanescence. And I don't particularly dislike any of these bands, but shut the f-ck up.

Isn't Steve Jablonsky doing the score? He scored the trailers and his name is on the poster...

i just hope its good... like all of Michael Bay flicks, the score is generally my favorite part, and i own all of them (with the exception of Bad Boys and Bad Boys 2, cuz i cant find just the score)... the first score was amazing, i wonder why Steve Jablonsky didnt come back for this one??

Again I go...NOPE!

Don't try and call me out with the 'Come On' crap. To each his own, but no way in damn hell is Megan Fox that hot. The chick is overrated. 'Meh' my a**. More like 'NAH'. I can think of 5 chicks who look better than her on their worst day. Gimmie a break...

As long as Zimmer is there, all should be fine.

So is Zimmer taking over from Jablonsky, one of his protege's, like he did with Badelt in the Pirates of the Caribbean scores. I don't mind him taking over, but I'd like some of the same themes to be used.

I like the idea of working a Linkin Park song into the score, a strategy often used in Bond films.

Evanescence was on tour in the summer of '07 with the "Family Values" tour. It appears it takes Amy Lee a couple of years to write enough music to come up with a full CD.

As far as the news... I don't think it will make much of a difference. The last movie, I could barely tell you that the song was there until the very tail end. I mean you heard it in the background very faint at one point, but it IMO was one of the weaker Linkin Park songs.

Whatever happened to Evanescence anyway? And why did we get stuck with horrible Paramore after they disappeared?

I think Zimmer (with James Newton Howard) provided one of the best scores in quite some time, with The Dark Knight. Jablonsky's score (from TF1) will pale in comparison to what Zimmer will do.

Zimmer? You mean Jablonsky?
Anyway, I just hope the main theme from part 1 will be a huge part in part 2 again... One of the best blockbusters scores ever, on the same level as the master, Zimmer, himself.
Evanescence was fucking awesome by the way (do they still exist?).

Zimmer's score will blow Jablonsky's score out of the water.

Zimmer?

Wait, Hans Zimmer is scoring the music for the film? I thought that Steve Jablonsky, composer for first film, is. Or is Zimmer "co-composing" as he does in many of the Remote Control Productions scores? Or is he just working with the song? Or what?

I like Zimmer, but I loved Jablonskys's score for first film, so I hope he is scoring TF2.

The score could sound like crap, but I'm still looking forward to the movie.

Yes. I would nail Megan Fox.

Meh, I'm with fat-womanizer on this one. Linkin Park and Evanescence are terrible bands. However, it could be worse i think. Maybe.

I'm not a huge fan of Transformers, but i think it will be a fun movie. Megan Fox is indeed hot.

Meh

Linkin Park AND Evanscence are the worst bands of the planet. But for me Transformers 2 is a low interest movie anyway.

Poor Hans Zimmer...

I'd nail Megan fox, though (which doesn't mean she is a good actress)

@ SHAGGY89...

So true, my friend, so true.
Anyhow, I'm hip to this news because it speaks about Megan Fox's hotness. About Linkin Park though...eeeeh not so sure.

Don't get me wrong, I was a big fan of their Hybrid Theory and (somewhat) Meteora albums, but they've begun to suck a lot, and while I loved TF I was never really able to digest the fact that Linkin Park had that end-sequence song. It's an okay song, sure, but it would have been awesome if they had Mutemath play their TF song instead! Or some

I still think their lead singer is a whiney 12 year old who needs a swift kick to the nuts. Maybe they'll drop and he'll learn to do decent vocals. The rest of the band sounds great, but that motherfucker is annoying.

Megan Fox isn't "meh" but Odette Yustman is several times hotter.
