Paramount's upcoming fourth Transformers film Age of Extinction probably didn't need any more pop culture tie-ins to bring the desired demographic into cinemas, but the news that music star Skrillex, aka Sonny Moore has joined the sound design crew probably won't hurt the film's chances.

According to an article on inthemix, Skrillex has committed to imbuing Transformers with "the craziest Skrillex sounds I could ever make", which will no doubt cause sub woofers everywhere to groan with terrifyingly deep, single digit Hz drops.

Whilst Linkin Park had previously contributed songs to the the first two Transformers films, there is no indication that Skrillex will contribute any fresh beats.
