Listen to James Gunn’s Original Song for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Writer/director James Gunn is something of a renaissance man. Not content with simply helming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and committing to directing the entire run of its trilogy, he’s also a real music guru. Every Guardians fan knows that the films are infused with, and inspired by, great music—it’s right there in the title. Gunn recently released the playlist for “Awesome Mix Tape Vol. 2,” the songs that will help drive the action as Star-lord (Chris Pratt) and the Guardians try to track down his father and save the galaxy one again. Now, Gunn has tweeted the lyrics to the song “Guardians Inferno” from the film’s soundtrack, a tune that’s played by The Sneepers and features, wait for it…David Hasselhoff. The picture he’s shared is of the lyrics that he wrote down on his phone’s Notes app; Gunn co-wrote the song with composer Tyler Bates.

Give the song a listen, and prepare for Vol. 2 to hit theaters on May 5, 2017.
