Anytime you can get bands like Paramore, Theory of a Deadman, Linkin Park, and Goo Goo Dolls to agree to record songs for your movie soundtrack you start off ahead of the game. Add in groups like Staind, My Chemical Romance and Taking Back Sunday and you cannot go wrong.
Film director Michael Bay felt that Linkin Park song “Iridescent” was a perfect fit in regards to the theme of the film. The group agreed to rerecord the track which they originally did in 2010.
The entire soundtrack is very rock oriented. To go further, it is a heavy rock soundtrack. The songs, however, are not devoid of melody and are catchy.
