This is a true story: Hollywood has actually optioned a film based on the Atari video game ASTEROIDS. Considering the game doesn't really have a plot besides "blow up the Asteroids before the crash into your triangle-shaped ship", this is very surprising. However, it seems that some plot details have been revealed and thus, this song was born. To me, it sounds like something Michale Bay would do...sort of "Pearl Harborgeddon"...so we had Aerosmith do the theme song.
Sadly, Stephen Tyler has just LEFT Aerosmith...so for some reason Trey Parker from South Park is singing it. And to get that raw, organic Trey Parker style to the lyrics...they have been improvised.
Seriously, though...ASTEROIDS THE MOVIE is a thing that is happening.
This track, and more awesome video game music, can be found on Insane Ian's new EP "fairly EPic", available at www.InsaneIan.com
