Paramore Unveil Clip Of ‘Transformers’ Single “Monster”

Four days after slimmed-down rock act Paramore announced they would be unveiling a new tune, along comes a 30-second clip of “Monster,” a single from the forthcoming Transformers: Dark Of The Moon soundtrack. Hear the scary new track below. Paramore, of course, are no stranger to crafting tunes for feature films. One of their biggest hits, “Decode,” arrived three years ago on the Twilight soundtrack.

“I’ll stop the whole world, I’ll stop the whole world from turning into a monster,” Hayley Williams declares on the chorus of “Monster.”

And maybe the song’s harder edge — or, harder than their last radio hit “The Only Exception,” at least — is a bid to show listeners that the band can still rock since the departure of band members Josh and Zac Farro last December.

“Monster” will be released June 7 with the full Transformers soundtrack following on June 14.
