Give Me Reason To Prove Me Wrong To Wash This Memory Clean

If you don't already know, there's a movie which has blasted its way into cinemas here, and its title is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Accompanying it is a rollicking soundtrack album, boasting a brand new single written by Linkin Park for the movie. Here are some fun facts about that rocksteady tune:

• It is the third song in history to debut simultaneously in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and top 10 of the Billboard Alternative Chart (the other two are "Speed of Sound by Coldplay and "What I've Done" by Linkin Park)

• It is the highest debuting song on the Alternative Chart in over a year.

• Linkin Park is now one of only five artistes in the 20 year history of the Alternative Chart to have three songs to debut in the Top 10. The other four are: U2, REM, Pearl Jam & Red Hot Chili Peppers

• It was the highest debuting song on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in Linkin Park history (#6).
