The Transformers theme song is one of the most recognizable cartoon themes. If you ask a random person on the street most likely they would be able to sing a line or two.
The other day I was picking up some kids from their school and one kid saw the Autobots pin I wear on my jacket. He asked me if I liked the show. I said yes and then he asked me if I knew the song. I said I did and I started singing. "Transformers! Robots in disguise!"
"That's not how it goes!" he shouted at me! "It goes, Transformers ENERGON! Robots in Disguise!" I felt so old.
Here are three versions of the theme song from the three seasons of the generation one show.
If you are a fan of Transformers: the Movie you should know this one. It is by 80's metal band Lion and it was recorded for the film.
This one is a cover of the Lion version of the theme by a band called Black Lab. www.myspace.com/blacklabband
All the fans were wondering if a new recording of the theme would be made for the new film. Fans were overjoyed when this song was leaked onto the net a few months ago. But their smiles turned to frowns when they heard the new verision by Deceptibot.
It was later revealed that this song was a big joke and now the real theme has been revealed and it by a band called Mute Math. Check out their site: www.myspace.com/mutemath
I like this version by Mute Math and am excited to hear it in the movie! Can't wait until July 7!
