Toei Animation has announced Japanese rock band FLOW will be lending their talents to Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods in the form of theme song “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA.”

The song was originally released by Japanese artist Hironobu Kageyama in 1989 and served as the theme to the first 200 episodes of the Dragon Ball Z series in Japan. It was also a part of the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Trailer released last week.

FLOW’s cover of CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA will feature the original lyrics with their distinctive style and increased sense of speed. FLOW released the following statement in regards to Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods:

“We are really excited to be able to perform “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA”. We’ve enjoyed Dragon Ball since we were kids in elementary school and it has gotten our juices flowing! “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” is a song we’ve sung often at karaoke, who knew we’d have the honor of doing a cover! We are really looking forward to the movie and hope everybody enjoys it as well as FLOW’s iteration of “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA”.

FLOW’s songs “Sign”, “Remember”, and “Go” have been featured in Naruto and Naruto Shippuden. You can check out the exciting song “GO!!!” below as part of Naruto’s 4th opening!

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods is the 18th movie in the Dragon Ball anime series. It will take place between Dragon Ball manga chapters 517 and 518, in the 10 year timeskip after Goku defeats Buu, but before the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. Akira Toriyama along with Toei Animation, Fox International Productions Japan, Shueisha, Fuji TV, Bandai, and Namco Bandai Games are all involved. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods is set to release in Japanese theaters March 30, 2013. There is no word on a North American or European release date at this time for either movie.

    Awesome! I’m pretty sure they’ll do well,I’m a fan of their other songs as well,esp. Sign. They really captured the atmosphere with that song and matched perfectly with what was going on in the Naruto anime at the time. Good to knw they’re covering this. Cn’t wait for the movie.

    This movie just got that much more epic!!

  • UnparalleledGoku

    It’s going to be great to see another artists version of the classic song “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA.” But theres no way that FLOWS version will be better than the original version because Hironobu Kageyama is a legendary japanese singer that sings DBZ songs the best.
