Sometimes a great cheesy theme song is all it takes to elevate a b-movie to true cult status. When your movie is called Killer Klowns from Outer Space, cult status is already all but assured. Adding a rocking theme song by a classic punk band like The Dickies is just the cherry on top of a delicious b-movie sundae.
I don’t think you need me to tell you anything about Killer Klowns from Outer Space. You’ve either seen it or you haven’t. You either love it or hate. Either or, the Chiodo Brothers’ 1988 homage to 1950’s alien invasion movies about homicidal harlequins from another galaxy invading a small town in their big top UFO to kidnap the townsfolk they then keep inside cotton candy cocoons for later consumption through a super bendy straw is a true cult classic, and this song by The Dickies is one of the many reasons why.
Here’s a B-Sides that is far too long overdue: The Dickies’ original music video for the title track to Killer Klowns from Outer Space.
