VIDEO: The Offspring – Sharknado

Credit: Promo

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.
