Cha-La Head-Cha-La – FLOW (Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Theme Song)Posted on January 1, 2013 at 7:25 PM
In December of 2012, Toei Animation announced Japanese rock band FLOW would have the honor to perform the official theme song for Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods! The song, titled Cha-La Head-Cha-La, was originally released by Japanese artist Hironobu Kageyama in 1989, serving as the theme to the first 9 movies and 200 episodes of Dragon Ball Z in Japan. Kageyama was called by his recording studio in 2005 to re-do the hit song for modern times. It was featured in the Japanese version of the PS2 video game, Super Dragon Ball Z.
FLOW has done music for Naruto, performing Go!!!” as the fourth opening theme and “Re:member” as the eighth opening theme. Their song “Sign” was the sixth opening theme for Naruto Shippuden.
