TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of Cheap Trick

Mommy's alright. Daddy's alright. They just seem a little weird...because this is the kind of music they were listening to in the 1970s.

That's right: Cheap Trick, still rockin' strong thirty years later with a new song on 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: The Album'.

The band has just posted 'Transformers: The Fallen Remix' on YouTube, blending some of their signature power pop hooks with the chorus of the popular theme song from the classic TV show.

Ugh...  I do like that Surrender song though.  Funny in a peculiar way and quite enjoyable on the ears.

Will have to check it out.

Even if it was corny (extremely), overblown (in a very good/bad, 70s/80s way), etc, I still enjoy the "rock" version of the TRANSFORMERS theme song, that accompanied the animiated "Transformers Movie" way back when.... ;-)

xenomorph - "I didn't even know that cheap trick were still together."

After this song they should do us all a favor and break up...

Wow.  That's awful.  I'd rather they bring back that really '80s, glam-rock version of the theme song that was done by "Lion" (No, I never heard of them, either) for the 1986 animated film.  At least that song sorta rocked (by glam standards).

Compared to all the crap New Metal they put on these soundtracks Cheap Trick Rock !

They will always Rock and Own your Soul !

This version is far better than that awful one put out on the first Bay movie soundtrack...who was it by...Mutemouth or something?  God that was bad...

Cheap Trick rocks!

You're right Ultrazilla.  And I'm down with anything that puts some straight forward ROCK back into the mainstream.  Though it could have been even cooler if it was DEF LEPPARD rockin' out the Transformers Theme!  Long Live Leppard!

I want Stan Bush's "The Touch" to be in this movie.  Actually, I want it in all movies. 

You're at your best when when the goin' gets rough
You've been put to the test, but it's never enough

You got the touch
You got the power

When all hell's breakin' loose
You'll be riding the eye of the storm

You got the heart
You got the motion

You know that when things get too tough
You got the touch

Now who isn't motivated?

I'll have to resurrect this thread in about a month and a half and let y'all know if they play it live......
