While the first Guardians of the Galaxy had some amazing and iconic music, Vol. 2 looks to up the ante by not only having even more amazing and iconic music, but by also featuring an original song in which David Hasselhoff raps about the movie. Not sure if it was intentional (probably), but it has a very Star Wars Disco vibe and I’m completely okay with that.
Here’s the lyrics so you can sing along at home.
Getting down and dirty with a procyon lotor/
Got no people skills but he’s good with motors.
That weird thing by his side an infantilized sequoia/
The two of them walk by, people say “Oh Boy-a”.
They ask me why I’m bringin’/
A baby into battle.
“Thats really irresponsible”/
And getting them rattled.
I say “Give me a break/
Get off my back dammit”.
I didn’t learn parenting/
My daddy was a planet.
In these times of hardship
We are Groot
Remember back in the day when every movie had a cheesy rap theme song at the end credits? (Shoutout to Addams Family!) The Goosebumps movie with Jack Black brought it back a few years ago, so hopefully we’ll get more of this cheesy goodness from more films in the future until we all come to our senses and realize that this is actually terrible.
