5. “Decode” by Paramore, Twilight: This fast-paced, catchy tune became an instant chart-topping hit. Not only is the band one of the best in the rock genre, but they brought the novel’s beloved characters to life on the big screen.

3. “Chop and Change” by The Black Keys, Eclipse: This band is one of the greatest amongst its generation. Pure rock-n-roll is what they aim for, and the lyrics in this song prove to be catchy and fun, while at the same time fitting perfectly with the film’s themes.

2. “Solar Midnite” by Lupe Fiasco, New Moon: The singer wrote this song exclusively for the film. Lupe screened the film early – at the time unfinished – in order to pull inspiration from the characters and the stories they tell. The song is more rocky than the artist’s other works, but it still proves to be a great hit.

1. "Supermassive Black Hole" by Muse, Twilight: Stephenie Meyer, author of the books, is a huge fan of the British band. Besides being 100 percent awesome, the song is placed at a point in the film when all the vampires gather together for a game of intense baseball. What’s not to love here?
