I'm not going to say that my earlier opinion of this song was "wrong" since neither my own nor anyone else's thoughts or feelings about this or any of the song choices have been right or wrong. Music means different things to each of us and we all experience a song differently even if all of us are listening to the exact same thing at the exact same moment. Being more informed now, I can say that I am willing to give this song more of a chance than I was willing to before. I've listened to it a few more times since the previous article and now after watching this behind the scenes clip and seeing that they are actually going to do more with it than just plug a "stock item" into the soundtrack, I'm willing to give it more of a chance. The one thing I will stand firm on is the the opinion that if this movie is going to end on a more somber note then they need to make this FINAL! No rebooting the franchise in 2 years with a different direction/production team, no plugging in other actors, just leave it the hell ALONE!!! This isn't the cartoon series, this is something that's been built up over the course of 6 years and taken over 600 Million dollars collectively. You don't re-heat like a cheap-ass microwave dinner, you respect the property that everyone has contributed, Jablonsky, Linkin Park and yes even Michael Bay, throughout all aspects of the movies and you leave the whole thing alone when it's all done. Let Iridescent be the crown jewel on this piece of work and respect the series.
That's just my opinion and I know some of you are going to sh** all over it like always so go ahead and let it fly.

Never been a fan of Linkin' Park (call 'em Stinkin' Park) but their best song in my opinion is the one used in the first movie, What I've Done. Mainly like the intro. The rest is as good as they get. It played well in the end credits.

Personally, I could care less about bands doing soundtracks in movies. I prefer original scores. I think Steve Jablonsky's music ruled the last two movies. I'm glad he's returning for this one.

Amazon.co.uk has updated their listing for Linkin Park's digital single release for Linkin Park's song Iridescent, the band's track chosen for the TF3: Dark of the Moon soundtrack. While the US release of the single only includes the remixed title track, the UK release will not only include Iridescent but also the two tracks from the two prior movies, What I've Done and New Divide. The run time for the remixed track is listed as 3:59 and the total run time for the release is 11:52.
The UK release is incorrectly listed as May 16th-it has been confirmed elsewhere for May 22nd. The US release of the single will be on May 17th. The singles will be available on both Amazon and iTunes.
