We're certain everyone is already counting down the days until the final installment of The Twilight Saga, which is, now, less than one month away. The highly anticipated Breaking Dawn Part 2 release on November 16 will mark the end of a joyful era, pre-Rupert Sanders. If all that surrounding Twilight drama is putting a damper on your thoroughly planned premiere party, sulk no more: Summit Entertainment has released the entire track listing for the film's final sound track. Your wintertime playlist is on its way. And as every Twi-hard fan knows, the sound tracks are usually better just as good as the movies.

As part of Billie Joe Armstrong's rocky new album, Green Day provided the sound track's lead single with its new song "The Forgotten." On the band's decision to collaborate with the Twilight series, Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt said, "We readily agreed because the films are an insane cultural phenomenon...We have always been impressed with the way the Twilight soundtracks are so carefully curated." The series' past sound tracks have included songs by Grizzly Bear, Thom Yorke, and Bruno Mars.

The rest of the final sound track features artists like Feist, Passion Pit, and St.Vincent. Twilight actress Nikki Reed will also be making a musical appearance in a duet with hubby, Paul McDonald (aww!). The sound track will be released November 13, giving fans three days to start memorizing those lyrics and stocking up on tissues.
