This was the third Linkin Park contribution to the Transformers
franchise. Their songs "What I've Done
" and "New Divide
" were featured in the first two films. Said Shinoda: "The Transformers
collaboration has been really fun for us. I mean, we grew up playing with the toys. When we first got approached on the first one, we said yes based on the idea of taking that thing that we loved so much and bringing it to life in a modern way. As it's gone on, that's still a big part of it for us."
