Twilight took over the world in the late 2000s and early 2010s, bringing vampires back into pop culture as teenagers everywhere declared their allegiance to either Team Edward or Team Jacob.


Whatever you may have thought of the Twilight films, however, there's no denying that the hit soundtracks feature some solid picks and are generally considered a high point of the movies.

So whether Muse's Supermassive Black Hole often reminds you of that iconic baseball scene, you visited author Stephanie Meyer's website for the premiere of Paramore's Decode or you're just generally feeling nostalgic, the Twilight soundtracks will surely have you reliving feelings of teenage angst.

So, while we wait for any news of a Midnight Sun movie, here's the full soundtrack of The Twilight Saga right up to Breaking Dawn - Part 2.
