Not a stranger to featuring in comedy films in the past, such as 1999’s Idle Hands, pop-punk favourites The Offspring have created and recorded the main song to feature on the next and fourth instalment of the comedy/sci-fi Sharknado series, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. The band’s contribution to the film is a reworked cover of The Dickies‘ song ‘Gigantor’, aptly retitled ‘Sharknado’.
You can check out the video to accompany the cover and The Offspring‘s contribution to the film’s soundtrack below:
Speaking of the cover, the band explained via their official Facebook page, “We love Sharknado. We love The Dickies. So we thought it would be fun to record our own version of The Dickies Gigantor for the new movie Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.”
It’s unclear at this stage whether or not the track will feature on the band’s forthcoming yet-to-be-tiled follow-up to 2012’s ‘Days Go By’, which is expected to drop later this year.
