The Guardians of the Galaxy, Vols 1 and 2, are already beloved movie icons, both inside and outside the geek crowd. As a big part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, their reach extends from Disney theme parks, with the hugely popular Guardian’s Breakout ride, to this little gem of a disco parody song called The Guardians Inferno.
It’s a catchy tune, and watching the video is great fun. Almost every character (plus erstwhile director James Gunn) are featured in shiny, tight, glittery, and frankly outlandish outfits that wouldn’t stick out on the dance floor in the 80s. Mutton chops and afros make an appearance too. If you’ve seen the movies, you’ll understand why David Hasselhoff (AKA Zardu Hasslefrou) sings this song — and if you know anything about Marvel comics, you’ll adore the Stan Lee cameo at the end.
Try to see if you can spot these characters from the films:

Here are the lyrics to this hugely amusing bonus treat:
Got no people skills but he’s good with motors
That weird thing by his side’s an infantilized sequoia
The two of them walk by, people say “oh boy-a”
A baby into battle
That’s really irresponsible
And getting them rattled
Get off of my back damn, it”
I didn’t learn parenting
My daddy was a planet
Zardu Hasselfrau, Zardu Hasselfrau, hey
