That TRANSFORMERS Band Covers the POWER RANGERS Theme Song

Nearly 20 years after their last cinematic adventure, the Power Rangers are heading back to movie theaters. And who better to welcome the Rangers back into the world of pop culture than their fellow metal-clad superheroes, the Transformers? Well, maybe not the actual Transformers, but the Transformers-themed rock band The Cybertronic Spree.

The band has released a new video covering the opening theme song for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series, mixed in with a little music from Doom. It’s a delightfully cheesy take on the original, and it’s quite funny to see these Transformers characters strike some very Power Rangers-inspired poses. We first wrote about The Cybertronic Spree last year, but they’ve been active on YouTube since 2013. The band’s gimmick is that they cover songs from the animated feature Transformers: The Movie while cosplaying as several of the most popular characters from the film. It’s nice to see the band branching out a bit with its latest cover.

The Cybertronic Spree branching into Power Rangers territory unearths a few questions about the relationship between the Mighty Morphin’ heroes and Transformers. Would Power Rangers have gone on to become a cultural phenomenon without Transformers paving the way a few years before? We suspect that Transformers, Robotech, and even Voltron all played a role in getting American fans ready for something like Power Rangers. But as you can see in the video, the fandoms can still co-exist quite nicely.
