The Cybertronic Spree are the best Transformers band in the world. They are also, quite possibly, the only Transformers cover band in the world. But even if they weren’t, we still think they’d be the best one! And they’ve just dropped their latest video, which is a cover of the 1977 Heart classic “Barracuda.”
The Cybertronic Spree seemingly shot “Barracuda” from their individual homes during quarantine. At least it looks like Arcee is rockin’ out in her bedroom to us. This video is a nice companion to the recent “Barracuda” fan-made tribute video featuring Ahsoka Tano. We fully support at the love this classic Heart tune is getting in pop culture lately, because it’s a timeless and very kick ass song. You can watch the full video right here:
This video is hardly the first time Cybertronic Spree has dropped a memorable classic rock tribute. Not that long ago, they released a pretty fantastic version of the Led Zeppelin classic “ Immigrant Song.” Which, due to its memorable use in Thor: Ragnarok, kind of makes it a Transformers/Marvel crossover? Kind of? (Just let us have this). In years past, they’ve had other “crossover” moments, like when they performed the Ghostbusters theme. Of course, they also covered “ The Touch” by Stan Bush, from 1986’s Transformers: The Movie. That one is kind of a requirement if you’re a Transformers cover band we imagine.
The Cybertronic Spree
For eight years now, The Cybertronic Spree have been delighting audiences everywhere. Band members have a listing on the official Cybertronic Spree site as “Hotrod, Arcee, Rumble, Unicron, Soundwave, Bumblebee, Shockwave and a Quintesson.” As so-called “rockstars in disguise,” let’s just say they all probably just want to keep their disguises. The group plan to tour this fall, Covid-19 situation permitting, of course. Check out their tour itinerary on their retro-flavored website.
