Terminator: Genisys

Whether you're ecstatic or skeptical at the prospect of a fifth Terminator film, you gotta admit the just-dropped trailer for Terminator Genisys looks pretty damn awesome (it almost makes up for the atrocious name).

Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to the role that made him famous, Lee Byung-hun appears as a liquid-metal terminator, and the new Sarah Connor gets to deliver the classic "come with me if you want to live" line. Plus, all sorts of explosive, awesome things happen, such as a school bus somersaulting through the air.

The trailer also features a "haven't I heard that before?" song ominously playing in the background at 0:47. Wondering what it is? We're here to help. The track is a recent indie cover of an underappreciated 1971 classic rock gem from Ten Years After, a British blues-rock band known for their breakthrough performance at Woodstock.

The song is their haunting psychedelic single "I'd Love to Change the World," which peaked at No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. But the version in the Terminator Genisys trailer comes courtesy of British indie artist Jetta, whose soulful voice has been compared to Solange and Florence Welch.

Watch the trailer below, and beneath that, check out Jetta's cover of "I'd Love to Change the World" and the Ten Years After original.
