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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
