Linkin Park Debut "Transformers" Video for "New Divide"

June 12, 2009 2:11 PM ET

Linkin Park debuted the new video for their song "New Divide," the theme for the upcoming summer blockbuster Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, on MySpace today. Like the film itself, the video grabs every digital trick in the book and gives fans a look at some footage from the hotly anticipated film. The video even uses that special effect Kanye West borrowed from Chairlift, who Rock Daily saw at Bonnaroo last night. Linkin Park will also reportedly help score the film.

The Transformers soundtrack hits stores June 23rd and features Green Day, Taking Back Sunday, Nickelback and many more. But the clear highlight is Cheap Trick's version of the "Transformers Theme" — quite a feat considering the song has the lyrics "Transformers, more than meets the eye/Transformers, robots in disguise." Get a listen over at YouTube.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
