Artist Alert: Skillet Chosen for Spot in Transformers 3 Soundtrack!

The third Transformers movie will contain an extra incentive for many Christian music fans to go to the theaters and watch it. That is because Skillet will be featured in the movie's soundtrack! That's right! The band has landed a coveted spot in the soundtrack of the third film in the Transformers trilogy, Transformers: Dark of the Moon (June 14, 2011). More details concerning the soundtrack will be released in the days to come.

Skillet has been on fire with their 2009 album Awake. So far, it has sold almost 750,000 copies, gaining it a Gold certification from the RIAA. It was Billboard's No. 2 "Top Christian Album" as well as the No. 9 "Top Alternative Album" of 2010. As I announced on this site about a month ago, the single "Awake and Alive" hit No. 1 on mainstream active rock! Finally, the album has yet to drop out of the Billboard 200 which it has remained on since its release. Thus, Skillet entirely deserves its spot on the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack. I will let you all know the specifics of the soundtrack once the details are released.
