Transformers 2: New Linkin Park Song and Score

April 24, 2009


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 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.

  21. Daga280 on April 26, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    so all this pictures ‘from studio’ didnt show us: ‘hey we’re working hard on our new album !!’ but ‘hey, look- we’re working hard on transformers soundtrack!!’ yeah congrats anyway 😉

  22. STINGER_LP on April 26, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    Mike, to be clear, you’re working with Hans Zimmer or Steve Jablonsky?
    Because Michael Bay on his blog says that you guys working with Jablonsky. And as I know, Steve Jablonsky is the composer of this movie.

    PLEASE, answer this question, it’s important for the “facts” about LP =))

  23. Imri on April 26, 2009 at 9:35 am

    WOW!!! the result of you guys and hans zimmer in making the score will be a BLAST. This will be be so epic…btw the use of what i’ve done in the conclusion of the first movie was so @#$%ing awsome! as for the movie, ill be the first one in line. haha ill be expecting an awsome score

  24. AS_21 on April 26, 2009 at 8:14 am

    OMG! I’m a fun of Hans Zimmer! love what he’s doing! it’s so amazing that you’re working together now! I’m so happy! 😉 and proud and.. I just can’t wait to see Transformers.

  32. Demented_D on April 25, 2009 at 7:56 pm

    Another one of your songs as a theme for an awesome movie again?! CANT WAIT!!
    When i first heard your song in the transformers movie two years ago I didn’t know who you where but I asked my cousin and he told me Linkin Park so I found more of your music and I loved it and its so awesome your doing another song for the movie cant wait you guys rock, I hope I can go to one of your concerts and Im counting down the days until the movie comes out, its the only thing thats probably keeping me sane through the more boring classes in school, but im ranting but still awesome band, and awesome looking movie keep up the good work

  33. eLgEE_Nst on April 25, 2009 at 5:34 pm

    wooot.. wooott..!! ^o^ can’t wait to see that!
    I decided to watch transformers when I knew that ur song was on the soundtrack.. but when I saw the movie, I have to admit that it was a great movie.. I love it.. so cool to watch it on a big screen.. =)

    now I know there’s gonna be transformers 2 with U guys, again, making the soundtrack.. what a great combination! a must see movie and a must have album.. I’m sure this sequel is much more cooler than the 1st one, and so does ur album.. ^_^

    I remember.. I got ur album just before I saw transformers movie.. so now, will I get ur album before I see transformers 2?? we’ll see.. :p but anyway, I love U guys.. keep up the great work!!! ^_*

  34. lp_fm_fan on April 25, 2009 at 4:57 pm

    Sweet!!!! I can’t wait for it! 😀

    Btw, yesterday I saw Crank High Voltage, Chester’s part was great, I was like super hyper when I saw him on the big screen (again!) I was literally freaking out, I bet I looked high or something, lmao. He did amazing with Jason, lmao.

  35. pepper on April 25, 2009 at 4:52 pm

    ummm Hans and LP?!?!?!?!
    Might I just say….. ACE!

  36. highlandpark on April 25, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    Those are amazing news!!! My favorite movie and favorite band put together!!! Looking forward to buying the soundtrack!!!

  37. Kalini on April 25, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    Wow, I’ve just seen High Voltage 2 and was surprised by Chester’s appearance. It was fun! I asked myself why I didn’t know that Chester has taken part in the movie. It’s because I don’t read anything regarding LP or other celebrities. Sometimes I try to read some VIP news, but I get bored very fast. It’s good to know that you’re working on a song for the Transformers saundtrack. Thanks for posting this news here! Otherwise I wouldn’t know it. I don’t know why I’ve had the feeling that you’ve been working on a song for a movie soundtrack. I wrote about it when you posted the video for the instrumental song, that it sounded to me like a song for a movie soundtrack. It’ll be great! KK

  39. liope on April 25, 2009 at 11:12 am

  65. west_lp on April 24, 2009 at 6:58 pm

  66. ThePrincess on April 24, 2009 at 6:56 pm

    OMG THAT WAS AWESOME .. transformers 2 certainly more powerful than the first ( transformers is Our favorite movie believed or not me and my friends more than 10 times watching it .. and not bored at all ) well I can’t wait to watch it & I hoped in this sequel I will hear again bumblebee said ‘You can check on the rep, yep, second to none ‘ ( very sexy 🙂 .. yes that is my favorite scene..) God .. I was very proud you guys were involved in this movie !

    Note : Btw bumblebee It was our nickname for you .. pretty cute huh !!

  67. lucky_cat on April 24, 2009 at 5:29 pm

    Your working with Hans Zimmer ?!?! Wow, congrats and good luck!

  68. HJP007 on April 24, 2009 at 5:15 pm

    OMFG!!!! I think my heart stopped when I read that. Micheal Bay is my favorite director. This news just made my year….Joe Hahn is going to love working on this, especially with Hans Zimmer!!!

  69. EpilepticChickenScratch on April 24, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    That’s freaking awesome and makes me happy. I love, love, LOVE Transformers.
    So, about this socialvibe contest. This dude is driving me nuts. I’ve been in the lead for about a month. However, whenever I get more people, he somehow gains like, 20 more. I think he’s cheating. Which is BS. I think the top two people should get to go to the studio and hang out with you guys. At least if we got over 300. I’ve got like..362 people right now. You should say something to SV.

  70. Philly_Willy on April 24, 2009 at 4:50 pm

    Then I heard Linkin Park were scoring Transformers 2 and I… jizzed in my pants.

  71. Full_Metal_Ninja on April 24, 2009 at 4:42 pm

    WOW!!! Can’t wait to buy the soundtrack and score album.

  72. Dori on April 24, 2009 at 4:39 pm

    Good stuff, Mike!! I’m not a HUGE action flick person, but I will DEFINITELY buy the soundtrack/score when it comes out! AWESOME graphic u put up, btw!

  73. ShadowerLiltani on April 24, 2009 at 4:26 pm

    You SHOULD do a score for Transformers. Hell, LP’s music has always sounded badass in the background of fight scenes, (That’s a reason why most of the AMV’s on youtube had LP songs set to Yu Yu Hakusho fights), so it only makes sense you’d do a score. You lucky devils you. And OMG that trailer is so cool. The second I saw the panther thing, I was like “BOOYA!”, I’m glad to see some subtle Beast Wars references, even though they aren’t exactly the same thing. I had forgotten about the first movie how yours, and mine favorite Decepticon (I can’t help it, Starscream is awesome, maybe it’s the name) survived so it’s only natural they have a sequel. This is gonna be fun. (Spielburg!!)

  74. Avi on April 24, 2009 at 4:25 pm

    freaking awesome! TF2 is my #1 movie to see this summer and with your music it will be zilion times better 😀

  75. YuN_RoCks on April 24, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    I’M. ABOUT. TO. DIE. all this looks AMAZING!!!!! can’t believe that you guys are working with Hans Zimmer, he’s freaking great! I just can’t wait to see Transformers 2, hearing new stuff from you and I really have to say that you are doing so great dudes! proud proud proud ❤

  76. Joanie_LP on April 24, 2009 at 3:50 pm

    GREATEST NEWS I’VE HEARD IN YEARS!!!! I’m so glad, so proud, so damn happpy!!! Finally! That’s gonna be huge, I’m tellin’ ya! OMG. Can. Not. Wait.

  77. Sepol on April 24, 2009 at 3:46 pm

    Epicness! LP + Hans Zimmer = Win
    Congratulations to the band for being in the studio with one of the best composers of the present days (in my opinion). I can’t wait to hear the results of this collaborarion… and I guess I have one more reason to watch Transformers2 x)

    Thanks for the update, Mike =D

  78. Hybr1d_7h3ory on April 24, 2009 at 3:44 pm

    That’s amazing Mike!!! I was sooo stoked to see this movie before and I am even more stoked now.

    On the topic of scoring/writing music. I just bought Pro Tools 8, I am super excited but overwhelmed at the same time. This is my first DAW (digital audio workstation for anyone else reading this comment). Do you have any pointers on where I should start?

    Catch ya later Mike…


  79. Janni_Loves_LP on April 24, 2009 at 3:43 pm

    OMG! That’s awesome, you’re going to do the score!! 😀 And with the great Hans?? You gotta be joking. With so many geniouses working on the score, it can’t go wrong.. Btw LP and Transformers = match made in heaven! ^^’ I can’t wait to watch it! – Janni

    Wow, you lucky you! He is such a genius! I’d love to hear, how it is to actually work with him!

  83. M4LL0RY on April 24, 2009 at 3:12 pm

    OMFG! I’m a huge Transformers fan, so I’m really excited for this. Not only that, but we get to hear the new LP song too!

    This will be the best birthday present ever. (My birthday is just 6 days after the movie comes out.)

    YAYYAYAYAYAYYY!!!! -^_^-

    Edit: I actually had to go look up what it meant to “score” a movie. Hehe. :]

  84. Gemeni2u on April 24, 2009 at 2:45 pm

    How exceiting for LP. I loved the first movie. I remeber going in to it saying ” great seeing a kids flick…”, but turned out to be one of the best action movies I ever seen. Very cool ! Good Luck.

  85. Mag_Shinizzle on April 24, 2009 at 2:44 pm

    I love Hans Zimmer !!! You all are going to make awesome stuff !

  89. Sharisse on April 24, 2009 at 2:11 pm

    Congrats! This is great news. I remember hearing how excited you guys were on having a song on the first movie because you guys are all Transformers fans, so this must be such a wonderful opportunity for you to help score the movie. Can’t wait to hear what you guys came up with. Thanks for keeping us updated.

  90. Shinoda77 on April 24, 2009 at 2:09 pm

    Wow!!! I wait for that movie so impantiently and now I’m just insane to see it! I went to the cinema for the first one just to hear Second To None and What I’ve Done and absolutely loved it! When I saw the first trailer of Revenge Of The Fallen almost pissed my pants 😉 More LP in next Transformers is insanely great! Can’t wait for the movie and your music! That’s gonna be awesome! And Hans is great, he did so much amazing job and even in Lion King which was the very first movie I saw in cinema and it’s probably my favourite of all times and the most important and impressive one. LP + Transformers 2+ Hans Zimmer = HEAVEN! I’m gonna watch Transformers right now!

  92. Xenith on April 24, 2009 at 2:04 pm

  100. tinkerbella26 on April 24, 2009 at 1:45 pm

    OMGAWD, when I saw that Transformers pic, I immediately knew.. Ok, I know this is gonna sound weird, BUT I had a gut feeling you guys were gonna have SOMETHING to do with Transformers 2.. It just wouldn’t have been the same..AND, you guys get to work with HANS ZIMMER!?!?! Awesome!!! AAHHHHHHHH I’m so excited. I’m a huge Transformers fan…. Good luck!!

    P.S. Quick question… How are you guys juggling your time? You guys have a busy busy year ahead!

    Thanks for posting this AWESOME update! You guys are working with Transformers theme…ahhh…how can’t I guess that! It would be more challenging for you guys so I cannot wait to hear it! Still waiting for you guys to come and next album too. 😀

    This is awesome guys, congrats!! I absolutely loved the first movie and with the best band on earth doing the score, it’s going to be epic. Can’t wait!!

  109. Lvix on April 24, 2009 at 1:31 pm

  110. chernose on April 24, 2009 at 1:26 pm

    This is quite possibly the greatest thing I’ve heard all year. As if Transformers wasn’t already going to be fantastic….this is the icing on the cake. I can’t wait to see it and see what you guys do with the music.

  111. asianotter on April 24, 2009 at 1:14 pm

    Congratulations! On the new song and scoring a flick. I was really wondering what was up when your referring to the song. You are always so straight forward and honest. That I was taken a back by your cryptic tone. But, I knew that all I had to do was hang tight and you would reveal all, and you did! Thanks, for sharing!

  112. shieldnoshield on April 24, 2009 at 1:02 pm

    that’s incerdible, mike! me and a friend were just talking about how there were rumours you guys were gonna have a song on the soundtrack, but a new song and the score? that’s really exciting, i think lp is a great fit for orchestral arrangements. now i REALLY can’t wait till it comes out…maybe do some previews? 😀

  113. Jaclyn on April 24, 2009 at 1:00 pm


  114. MS_Ineedyou on April 24, 2009 at 12:58 pm

    THAT’S FUCKIN AWESOME !!!!!!!!! It’s an awesome movie … now featuring KICKASS MUSIC !!! I know LP was in the first one too …. Second 2 None too !! but still haha. I’m DEFINITELY seeing this one on opening day, as i did the first one. This is gonna be great. Everyone in my whole school hates LP .. now i can RUB IT IN THEIR FACE that LINKIN PARK will be in their favorite movie !!! Haha!Thanks for the updates Mike !!! —Brooke .

  115. bojkic on April 24, 2009 at 12:55 pm

    WOW! Great news Dr Shinoda!!!

    So we will be able to hear at least one new LP song on concerts this summer! excited I haven’t been so pumped up about a movie for years now(got sick of blockbusters, going for underground and short films). But realizing it will give me the opportunity to hear a new LP song(in many versions, and possibly even more) is sooooo awesomeeeeee! 😀

    Now, Mike, show them some more of your composing magic and they will let you make the whole score 😀 heheheh! And working with Zimmer is awesome too. Maybe an opportunity for another Grammy or an Oscar 😀 Good luck and a lot of fun working on this! And don’t forget about the new album! Bojan, Serbia

  116. soyuneik on April 24, 2009 at 12:54 pm

    You can’t say the word “Transformers” without me popping up. I’m like Sylar with the lie detector, as soon as someone says it I KNOW. Beyond all that, I’m the one gonna be wearing the Devastator “Suit”. They don’t know it yet. I can honestly say that I would jump out of my skin and die only to die again if they came to me and ask me take part in that. Thats so badass! I can’t wait. …..I don’t know if I need to mention I’m a Film composer Fanatic or not? I think everyone should be.

  117. spraypaintNinkpens on April 24, 2009 at 12:52 pm

    New music, yes! Thank you for keeping your fans in the loop Mike; it really means a lot to us. I’m anxiously awaiting to hear this score from you guys.

  118. _Constantine_ on April 24, 2009 at 12:45 pm

    Nice one! I guess though LP won’t be lending their “voice” as well in any song for the movie. All, from your part, will be instrumental huh? Oh well!

  119. Aquaria on April 24, 2009 at 12:42 pm

    Congrats on such an awesome opportunity! Can’t wait to see the movie! 😀

  120. phill715 on April 24, 2009 at 12:32 pm

  121. ErbseLP on April 24, 2009 at 12:27 pm

  130. MentalisFun on April 24, 2009 at 12:00 pm

    “…it creates a nice interplay between the organic feel of the rhythm track and the more robotic feel of the keyboards.”

    Sneaky Mike….very sneaky


  131. Mickey on April 24, 2009 at 11:49 am

Ha go figure. :)~ Anyway that’s really great news. I can’t wait to see & hear the movie even more now. Oh & I do hope to hear SOB on there. 😉
