Cowabunga, dudes! Continuing in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise’s rich tradition of having incredibly over-the-top, but somehow infectiously catchy tie-in songs, today’s Music Geek Track of the Day comes courtesy of the Taylor Gang crew: Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign. With production by Kill The Noise and Madsonik, “Shell Shocked” is, without a doubt, the most bangin’ Turtles jam since Master Splinter’s “Skipping Stones” on 1990’s “Coming Out of Their Shells” tour.
Seriously though, I’ve listened to this maybe three or four times in a row now and it’s pretty slick. Hard to argue with that thundering bass line. Don’t believe me? Put it on at your next party and watch what happens as booties begin to uncontrollably shake like they’re being transported to Dimension X.
The single hits iTunes tomorrow in advance of the film’s August 8th release, but you can turn up the bass, turn down for what, and bump this jam all Comic-Con long.
