Additional soundtrack info
Track 7, 9, 10 and 12 do not appear in the actual motion picture.

The film has been criticized somewhat for not including the theme song from the old cartoon. Luke Y. Thompson of L.A. Weekly wrote, "The movie's biggest misstep is a complete lack of the classic Transformers theme song. How do you not use the coolest '80s toyline-turned-cartoon music ever?" (A cover is performed by the rock band Mutemath, and it is used on this soundtrack but cannot be heard during the actual film)

Soundtrack Q & A
Q: Does anyone know if this will have any score, or just a bunch of crap music inspired from the movie? (from darthmaul1 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)
A: It has none of the quite good orchestral score. This is a very very blatant attempt at fleecing consumers. I watched the movie and liked how the music matches the theme and the general feel of the transformers. But none of that music is on the OST which is a disappointment. Hope a "true OST" is released in the future. In a nutshell, this is an album with a bunch of Sony Music artists and songs, half of which aren't even in the movie. (thanks to disgruntled, Malaysiaadd more info
A: I think there maybe a SCORE CD coming soon. (thanks to darthmaul1, edmonton, alberta canadaadd more info
A: I heard that a score is said to be released in August. I'm hoping it happens, if not I'll be writing to someone to get the score produced. Any concrete info from a producer or the composer of the score? I'm looking around, if I find anything more I'll be sure to post. (thanks to allthekingshorses, Sellersville, PAadd more info
A: TRANSFORMERS score album set for October 9th release! (thanks to zenefan, Hungaryadd more info

Q: Does anyone know what song was playing when the autobots come down from the sky? (from joe in CA)
A: There isn't a name for it yet, it was part of the score that Steve Jablonsky wrote. You can hear 30 seconds of it at the end of the HBO Transformers First Look which can be viewed on youtube. (thanks to Zac, Texasadd more info
A: It's "Arrival to Earth" from the score. (thanks to Ezechiel, Slovakiaadd more info

Q: Does anybody remember when the Goo Goo Dolls' song "Before It's Too Late" is used in this movie? (from Zac in Texas)
A: After Sam tells Mikaela she would regret not getting in the car 50 years from now. (thanks to Anthony, Chicago, ILadd more info
A: It's the part right after Bumblebee chased and kicked Barricade's ass and when Sam and Mikaela finally found out that they are alien robots. (thanks to Alie, Malaysiaadd more info

Q: Does anyone know the song that is playing when the old dodgy-looking car dumps the kids out on the side of the road and then turns into the new flash car? (from Eliot in Brisbane)

Q: What's the song playing in the beginning with the army guys in a helicopter? It also plays when Bumblebee and the army are driving and those guys turn around and follow them. (from Silver in Colorado Springs Colorado)
A: I think there isn't a name for it yet as it's part of the score Steve Jablonsky wrote. (thanks to James Lee Fort, Belarus, Borisovadd more info
A: I think "Autobots" on the score CD covers the first few minutes of the movie and not just the Autobots theme. I'm not positive though. I have a hard time distinguishing music like this (classical/symphony) and I'm taking a guess. (thanks to Anthony, Chicago, ILadd more info

A: Actually, no. As of now, there isn't going to be a score CD in August (or ever it seems).
