Listen to David Hasselhoff’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ rap

The track has been written by the film's director James Bunn and composer Tyler Bates - with The Hoff on the mic

David Hasselhoff‘s rap track for Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 has been released – listen to ‘Guardians Inferno’ below.

The sequel to the Marvel comics film will be released in the UK next week (April 28), with a North American release expected the week after (May 5).

Ahead of that release date, the new film’s soundtrack – which has been billed as the follow-up to the first film’s “Awesome Mix” – was revealed earlier this week, featuring a slew of classic tracks from the 1970s.

One cut on the new soundtrack, however, had raised eyebrows due its Hasselhoff feature. The Sneepers’ song ‘Guardians Inferno’ – which was written by director James Gunn and the film’s composer Tyler Bates as a “Guardians take on Meco’s disco Star Wars theme” – indeed features a vocal contribution from the Baywatch star, and the song has now been released.

Listen to ‘Guardians Inferno’ below.
