8-Bit Rebellion!

8-Bit Rebellion! is the soundtrack album for the online video game of the same name, consisting of songs recorded by American rock band Linkin Park.[1] It was released on April 26, 2010 via Warner Bros. and Machine Shop and produced by Mike Shinoda. This is the fourth soundtrack released by the band. The previous soundtrack Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – The Score, released in June 12, 2009 in the UK and June 23, 2009 in the United States, was a collaborated film score album with music composer Steve Jablonsky for the 2009 Transformers sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.


The soundtrack contains the 8-Bit remix/instrumental of some songs by the band recorded for their previous studio albums, such as Hybrid Theory (2000), Meteora (2003), and Minutes to Midnight (2007) with exception for the songs "Qwerty" from Linkin Park's sixth LP Underground EP LP Underground 6.0 (2006), "New Divide" from the second Transformers original motion picture soundtrack Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen The Album (2009), and many songs recorded separately for the soundtrack which are not actually a song, after the eighth track. The unreleased studio recording of "Blackbirds" was released for the soundtrack separately as a song to be unlocked by playing the game.

The soundtrack also includes the original songs from their three previous studio albums, known as the "hi - res" (hi-resolution) for the soundtrack. Mark Wrong is the additional musician from tracks nine to twelve on the soundtrack's original track listing.
