The Twilight saga has made household names of its stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner – and the musicians on its soundtrack should be no exception. Paramore’s single “Decode” (from the No. 1 Twilight soundtrack) was a Top 40 hit, and the soundtrack to New Moon debuted at No. 2 on Billboard‘s 200 Albums chart, with the lead-off single, Death Cab for Cutie’s “Meet Me on the Equinox,” also proving a critical hit.

And now it’s time for take three: the artists included on the Eclipse soundtrack were revealed one at a time last week, and reads like a Who’s Who of indie rock. Beck, Muse, Vampire Weekend (of course) and more stars appear on the album, due in stores June 8.

But which song is the most highly anticipated?
