there's an inordinate amount of 'pensive looks' in that vid.

I saw it somewhere else and after it had done I pretty much rushed onto I-tunes to listen to the orginal.

If they left out the silly faux rap parts, it would have been perfect.

Stan, why throw away your life so recklessly?

The original version was cool and all, but it was very much an 80's "Hair Rock" song. It simply wouldn't fit in a 2009 movie.

That much is true, but I think he took everything that was cool about the old song and put a lot of modern crap in this one. The song is not even recognizable.

He doesn't even keep the melody of the original.

So... does this make anyone believe that Prime is going to die?

(Not that I care about these updated Transformers movies)

I have no idea what this is.

I thought Stan Bush was the Bush's baked beans guy.

Here is the original in its kick ass glory. I love this scene so much.

He submitted The Touch for the first film as well (It wasn't used). This isn't actually from the new movie. Just something he submitted for contention.

The version that was used on that episode of Chuck was the one he sent in for the first one.

Here's The Touch (2007) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YW6p3xZSmMg)

Eh, it fits perfectly with the sensibilities of the new movies, as far as I'm concerned.

I'm just happy they actually had Stan Bush participate (just like I was happy they had Peter Cullen participate in the movies). Good for him for getting a nice gig.

Edit: Ah, didn't realize this wasn't an official thing. I guess change that to "I'd be happy if they actually let Stat Bush participate...", then.

Smiling guitar man amuses me... rapping toolbox not so much. The song is fine for what it's trying to be, which is updating a 80s power ballad into something more acceptable for today's audiences. It's not a wonderful remake by any means, but I personally hope it makes the soundtrack for nostalgia purposes and for Stan Bush.

That's pretty bad.

What I don't get is the obsessive love for the original. But then again, I didn't see it till I was an adult...

I felt ashamed just watching it, like it was somehow partly my fault. I think I just discovered "Battered Listener" Syndrome.

How much do you want to bet this abortion of a song is what's going to be released to Guitar Hero, instead of the "classic" version of the song we all know and love??

Yeah, that is too bad for you. Had you heard it when you were 8 like it me it would be a whole bunch different.

That was actually worse than the movie. I didn't know it was possible to do that.

i was 8 when i heard it and i was less than impressed. that song has never done anything for me.

Yeah, it just seemed like an extra-schlocky "Eye of the Tiger" to me - and it seemed weird to me to hear it played during the action sequence. Before or after, yeah, but...during?

I did, however, imprint on "Eye of the Tiger" as a kid, so I'm not immune to the might of the 80s rock ballad. :surrend:

I thought it was a joke for the a minute or two, and then when I decided it wasn't I turned it off.

oh, i have a soft spot for 80s rock ballads. for some reason, though, this one just didn't do anything for me.

If this was a new song about 7 years ago it would be a little amusing. But as a cover it's unrecognizable and is more of a re-imagining than a remake. I'm not impressed. I guess it has as much to do with the original version of the song as the movie does with the original versions of the characters, which I guess would make it a good fit.

Say what you will, but as cheesy as it was, it did fit the scene well.

who the heck is Stan Bush? He doesn't look familiar to me.

If you don't know who he is, then you probably never saw the original Transformers movie.

True, I didn't.

Before I clicked on the first video, I thought it was the guy from Wall Of Voodoo.

I thought it was great when I was a kid, too. I also liked Bobby Brown's song from Ghostbusters 2. I have developed good taste in music since then. :)

You have to picture it as the child who watched Transformers everyday on television, who can't wait to go see the movie and then not only are you seeing Autobots and Decepticons actually DIE (to say nothing bout the scars let alone by Optimus) but they're playing HEAVY METAL music????????

In a Transformers cartoon??????????

That's how the soundtrack became such an important part. You NEVER would have figured the songs they used would have ever been picked in the first place.

agreed. that movie was the most awesome thing i had ever seen. we were there opening day. my 11 year old mind was sufficiently blown away.

edit:
wow that hing did horrible at the Box Office. no wonder it took 20 years to make another one.

Never been a Transformers fan, but this does make me hope that Weird Al will do an updated version of "Dare to be Stupid" to mock this.
