Camper Van Beethoven – “Long Way To Go (Sharknado)”
The third entry in SyFy’s hugely successful Sharknado series is premiering tomorrow, and yeah, it’s about the same characters escaping from yet another sharknado (which, if you don’t know, is exactly what it sounds like). For some reason, alt-rock veterans Camper Van Beethoven are contributing an original song to the soundtrack. It’s called “Long Way To Go (Sharknado),” and it is about running away from a sharknado. Frontman David Lowery explains:
Camper Van Beethoven have long been fans of the, shall we say, less-than-serious movies? One of our early albums, Vampire Can Mating Oven, was a fake collection of “oddities” which included tracks from non-existent b-movies with titles like “Vampire Surfers.” Naturally we were immediate fans of the Sharknado series, and regard director/garage-rocker Anthony Ferrante as a kindred spirit. We reached back into our past, to the absurdity and silliness of our earliest albums to come up with this track. After all, what could be more liberating than a punk rock track about escaping from a Sharknado? You know you want to sing along.
Embrace the absurdity below, via Under The Radar.
Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is out now on Lakeshore Records. You can catch Sharknado 3 tomorrow at 9PM on SyFy.
