The Transformers: Rise of the Beasts soundtrack featuring 90s hip-hop beats is out now – so, here’s the tracklist with all the songs in the movie as well as information on the score and how to stream both albums. 

Transformers’ toy line has spawned a massive media franchise, with the late 00s seeing the arrival of Michael Bay’s movie series. Though the love-it-or-hate-it Bayformers concluded with 2017’s The Last Knight, a reboot arrived the following year with the well-received Bumblebee.

With Transformers: Rise of the Beasts arriving in cinemas this week, here’s a rundown of the movie’s soundtrack and score so you can queue up the songs to turn up to the maximal.
