As part of the viral marketing for the live-action movie, an mp3 of Linkin Park soundalikes "DECEPTIBOT" performing a song that included the classic theme as a chorus was released online. The song also featured a roll call of the Autobots in the movie while excluding Jazz as... well, we all know what happened to Jazz. This song didn't feature in the movie or on the soundtrack, though. Instead, MuteMath performed a whiny and emo laid back version of the tune for the soundtrack, although it didn't appear in the film itself. Ironically, the Deceptibot theme does appear in the IMAX extended cut of the film, though none of the lyrics are heard.
Transformers Animated continued this tradition with yet another new variation of the theme by Andy Sturmer and Sebastian Evans II, including an entirely new rhyming couplet, "More than they appear/Justice, bolts, and gears!" However, because the opening credits had to be shortened from one minute down to thirty seconds, this new verse had to be omitted from the final broadcast version of the opening. The full, uncut theme song is available on the DVD that comes in the Optimus Prime vs. Megatron - The Battle Begins 2-pack, and was available for download in mp3 format on Hasbro's website.
There are many Japanese themes, with different openings and closings for each series. Many different performers have contributed songs over the years. One of the songs is totally about how Star Saber wet the bed as a kid. Seriously. The opening for Car Robots ("Honō no Overdrive ~Car Robot Cybertron~" performed by Kōji Wada) has the lyrics "Go Boy! Convoy!" It's kind of dubious. Interestingly enough, Legends of the Microns' "Transformer: Dream Again" features the phrase "More than Meets the Eye" uttered just before the refrain, while Galaxy Force's "CALL YOU... Kimi to Boku no Mirai" has the phrase "Robots in Disguise" during the bridge in the full version.
Invite those joining you in Ten Days of Prayer to consider some type of fasting, such as fasting from TV, secular music, movies, the Internet, sweets, or other types of food that are hard to digest. Use the extra time to pray and study the Bible, asking God to help you and your congregation to abide more fully in Christ. By adopting a simple diet, we allow our minds to become more receptive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. 2b1af7f3a8
