The "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2"soundtrack is out today, but you may not be ready for the closing song, David Hasselhoff's "Guardians Inferno." That kind of fabulous disco cheese is too pure for this world. It also goes on for nearly two minutes before The Hoff even starts to rap/sing about Groot.
Here's "Guardians Inferno" performed by The Sneepers, featuring David Hasselhoff:If only we could time-travel back to a 1980s roller rink and skate to this masterpiece.
In case you're curious, io9 wrote down the lyrics:
"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"
"Guardians" director James Gunn co-wrote the song, and promoted it on Instagram:
You can download the #GotGVol2 soundtrack now! Including Guardians Inferno, written by me and Tyler Bates and performed by my new band The Sneepers ft @DavidHasselhoff. The track is inspired greatly by Meco's disco-infused Star Wars theme. #DontHasseltheHoff #ProcyonLotor #InfantalizedSequoia
"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" will be released in theaters next Friday, May 5.
