The first time I heard "You Know My Name" was on the radio. The guy that was on complained about it for 5 minutes after it had finished, saying that it was the worst Bond song ever - going on and on about how it was "un-Bond-like". At first, I was a little sceptical... I then saw the music video on Kerrang a few times after that and was gradually beginning to fall for it...

When I went to the cinema to finally see the movie, I was completely BLOWN AWAY by the opening sequence. The colourful 'card/poker-references' actually made the sequence exciting! Thought most of the excitement was mostly thanks to the music. Along came Chris Cornell... This song just blows you away. After seeing the movie, I just had to buy the record.

Since buying it about two weeks ago, I've practically had it on repeat non-stop. I seriously cannot get enough of this song. It puts such a vivid picture of the movie in your head... Completely brilliant. If you love Bond and/or Chris Cornell, you will have probably bought this already. If not, then buy it now! You won't regret it.

This is one of those Bond theme's that has you saying "DOESN'T SOUND LIKE A BOND THEME" Then you see it on the big screen and change your mind completly after it blows you away!

I love the film and now the song, they go well together.

When I first heard this I was a little dissapointed that it wasn't as catchy as Cornell's Audioslave work (which I have to admit I'm a big fan of) but now that I've seen the movie in the cinema I realise how good it is and was impressed how well it fits in with the film when just the music is being used in scenes.

Can't say I have ever or even still known who Chris Cornell is even though I read & watched articles about him & his band but, This is a loud bursting song that you know has arrived as soon it starts & personaly what I feel a Bond song should be. Unlike Sam Smith's Drizzle on a grey day un-noticable background radio tune. this lands like a plane crash. I have to admit to not liking it at first but it has grown on me & I know it's name & lyrics more now. Either way its better than the next bond song which was atrocious.

I admit to being biased - Cornell is my favourite musician, having been a fan of Soundgarden since the early days and loving both Audioslave and his solo album.

Never the less, this song stands up on it's own. It ranks alongside some of his best works - Loud Love, Black Hole Sun, Burden in my Hand, Gasoline, Dandelion, Follow My Way - and proves just how complete and superior a musician he is.

In terms of the film, both the lyrics and melodies complement the rebooting of the Bond character so expertly achieved by Daniel Craig, hinting at the story ahead, the character and his background.

I don't buy singles but i'm buying this one.

A truly fantastic Bond theme for the new generation of James Bond fans, and the first male vocalist since 1987s The Living Daylights by A-Ha!

Avoiding such dire attempts at modern, funky and synth tunes from the Pierce Brosnan era with songs from Garbage and Madonna to name a few, Chris Cornell gives us a raw edge, much like Daniel Craig's portrayal of 007 in the new movie Casino Royale, which this is the title song.

The lyrics stick with you over a memorable chorus (unlike the Brosnan ones) which is something not heard since the Roger Moore tunes of the 1980s. The orchestral score is rousing and pure Bond, if you know your stuff anyway, and David Arnold lends a hand to keep it modern and pulse-pounding, again, much like this newer take in Casino Royale for Bond.

All in all, a great start for Daniel Craig and a rocking debut for him to take over the box-office with. Buy this song, and add it to your favourites with the previous Bond themes.

This inculdes an amzing song in You Know My Name-and just to clear this confusion up it is the ROCK version-the movie version is only 3 minutes long and changes the lyrics 'I've seen diamonds' to 'I've seen this diamond' and the movie version cuts out a long part at the end. Still, I got this single with the rock version and it is probably the best song I have ever heard-I must have listened to it at least 50 times. However, if you want to get the official version, just search it on YouTube and enjoy it. Anyway, You Know My Name is amazing in any format, and don't let the version confusion get you worried-I've heard all 3 (Jazz, Rock and Movie) and they're basically the same.
