Evanescence want to be included on the ‘Breaking Dawn’ Soundtrack!

MTV has the latest scoop from the band Evanescence, who, it turns out – really, really want to be included on the upcoming Breaking Dawn soundtrack.
Frontwoman Amy Lee explained how she got into the first Twilight book and was soon a big fan, but unlike the rest of her band, she’s Team Jacob. Check out the interview below: (US Only)

And, as they told MTV News after the premiere of their new song “What You Want”, scoring a slot on the upcoming “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ soundtrack is definitely a goal this time out.
“I’ve been screaming for [new song] ‘My Heart Is Broken’ to land in that, because I think it would fit the story so well,” drummer Will Hunt said. “I got sucked into the ‘Twilight’ vortex by the girls at home, so by default, I’ve got to watch it.”
“I think that would be awesome, actually,” frontwoman Amy Lee added.
It’s not like Evanescence haven’t tried to get on a “Twilight” soundtrack in the past, but for whatever reason, it never panned out. And it was because of those early attempts that they’d love to be included in the next film. … Simply put, Lee has become invested in the story, and she’s not afraid to admit it.
“Fine, I read the books; everybody hates me now,” Lee laughed. “I didn’t watch the first movie — I was like, ‘Yeah, whatever. I got over vampires in high school’ — then they were like, ‘Maybe you should write a song for the movie,’ so I read the book and I wrote some songs, and it didn’t work out because they have all these cool hipster people that are doing the ‘Twilight’ stuff. But then I was kind of into it, so I read the next books.”
And after reading the books, Lee actually found herself at odds with her bandmates, most of whom are avowed members of Team Edward. Seems she’s got a soft spot for the frequently shirtless werewolf, though not for reasons you’d probably expect.
“Jacob [is my favorite], for sure,” she said. “He’s the good guy, he’s the sweetheart.”

So, do you think Evanescence would be a good choice for the soundtrack?
If so, what do you think of the title "My heart is broken"? 
Could it be an Edward song? Jacob? Bella??
As most of you already know, Stephenie Meyer herself has used some of their older songs as inspiration whilst writing the books, so I'm sure she'd love to have them on board!
