'The Forgotten' By Green Day Kickstarts The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Official Soundtrack

Green Day, The Twilight Saga: breaking Dawn Part 2

The publicity for the much-awaited official soundtrack of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 kickstarts with the release of its first single.  The single entitled The Forgotten, which was written and performed by Green Day, was accompanied by it's official music video that features a few scenes from the movie. It was the third track of the said album with an almost five-minute eargasmic playtime.

This is the band's first contribution -- and the last should the series opt not to make some spin-off sequels -- to The Twilight Saga, giving them a sure chance to gain millions more of fans and followers despite their already established fame.

The nostalgia-inducing The Forgotten by Green Day will surely make you smile and tear up at the same time. Lighten the Halloween mood with the song's music video:

The video, which was directed by Bill Berg Hellinger, premiered on MTV. It was shot during the recording of the song and includes a montage of the band's old performances and shows over-imposed on a few new scenes from the movie and some old ones which are already featured in the trailer.

Billy Joe Armstrong's fragile and unique voice brings back familiar glimpse when I first heard of some of his famous songs, Wake Me Up When September Ends and  Time of Your Life (Good Riddance) to name a few. The best part for this song, however, is the line that says, "sometimes you're better lost than to be seen," which I believe some would agree with.

Updated: The Forgotten is now featured in the latest Breaking Dawn Part 2 TV spot entitled Shine:

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Official Motion Picture Soundtrack is now up for pre-order at iTunes. This 14-track album will be released on November 13, 2012, three days ahead of the movie.
