Music is a huge part of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, which helps set it apart from the rest of the MCU. The music is an important part of major scenes and most of it comes from the '70s and '80s. For Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn wrote an original number, "Inferno," which was performed by none other than David Hasselhoff. Now Gunn and the cast have assembled in a music video for the song and it should be the greatest thing you see today. Enjoy.
Co-written by James Gunn and score composer Tyler Bates, the "Inferno" music video will be available as a special feature on the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Blu-ray. However, Marvel has released it for the public early, because you can't keep this beast chained. Performed by David Hasselhoff, the video also features appearances from Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, and even James Gunn (on the drums), all decked out in '70s appropriate attire. The video is super fun and just the right amount of cheesy.
Like an old Stefan bit on Weekend Update, this video has everything: sideburns, a dancing robot, a Stan Lee cameo, Zoe Saldana on tuba, David Hasselhoff... uh, Guillermo from Jimmy Kimmel Live! Oh, and also this:
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was one of the biggest hits of the summer, earning over $388 million at the box office and getting positive reviews from critics. The sequel currently stands as the third highest grossing movie of 2017, right behind Wonder Woman and Beauty and the Beast. The third Guardians movie is already in development and it will help set the stage for the future of the MCU and other cosmic stories. Before that though, the Guardians will be appearing in next year's Avengers: Infinity War, teaming up with the Avengers to save the universe from Thanos.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits Digital on August 8, and then the 4K UHD and Blu-ray editions hit shelves on August 22. You can next see the Guardians in theaters during Avengers: Infinity War out on May 4, 2018.
