Foo Fighters Icon Offers ‘Cobra Kai’ Theme Song


Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has offered his new song with Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron as a theme song for the Netflix series Cobra Kai, a continuation of the Karate Kid films. Hawkins and Cameron’s song “Long in the Tooth” under the Nighttime Boogie Association banner is the song that Taylor thinks would be the perfect choice.

“He sent me some fun little funky drum machine with some Foghat guitars and I just cut it up in the computer, as we do nowadays, and we just fashioned a song out of it,” Hawkins says of “Long in the Tooth” in a new <a href=”” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>Rolling Stone interview.

“I sent it to Matt and he was like, ‘This is really cool.’ And I’m like, ‘You’re gonna put real drums on it, right?’ We’re two drummers in arguably two of the bigger rock bands on the planet right now, and we’re not gonna have real drums on it. That’s kinda rad.”

Hawkins added, “I think it could totally be the theme song for Cobra Kai. I’m telling you now, Cobra Kai, we will give you this song cut rate. Karate Kid rock.”

Dave Grohl covered Drake’s “Hotline Bling” in a new video with Foo Fighters producer Greg Kurstin. Grohl wrote, “You might be surprised to learn that this superstar is… Canadian. He’s never hidden the fact that he was M.O.T. … so a generation of Jewish parents could tell their kids ‘if Drake took the time to study for HIS Bar Mitzvah, you can too.’ Ladies and gentlemen…challah at your boy….DRAKE!”
