What Is The Song In Amazon Video's Gen V Trailer?

Amazon is going all-in on their "The Boys" franchise with the release of the live-action spinoff, "Gen V." The spinoff focuses on a younger generation of Supes, serving as a nice change of pace and further developing the world of "The Boys." While Amazon has not officially released any plot details, we know that the show is set in a superhero college run by Vought International. It explores how teenagers and young adults act as they strive to become a hero worthy of joining The Seven. The series draws comparisons to "The Hunger Games" as the students compete against one another to land the best contracts in America's biggest cities. The characters will have their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries pushed to the limits (via Variety).

Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters expand the "The Boys" world brought to live-action by Eric Kripke, with the duo serving as showrunners on the series. Joining the cast are Jaz Sinclair, Lizzie Broadway, Chance Perdomo, Maddie Phillips, Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Clancy Brown. Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie, and P. J. Byrne reprise their roles from "The Boys," guest starring as A-Train, Ashley, and Adam, respectively.

The recent release of the show's trailer has fans more than excited to get a new look at the world, which promises to be just as gore-filled as its predecessor. As with any good trailer, the music really sets the tone, which may make people curious about what song Amazon included to get fans excited.

The Gen V trailer features I'm Gonna Do My Thing by Royal Deluxe

The upbeat and electrifying song used in the "Gen V" trailer is "I'm Gonna Do My Thing" by Royal Deluxe. The song is part of their 2015 self-titled EP, which quickly became a standout for its powerful beat. Royal Deluxe is a collaborative band featuring members Tyrone Wells, Sam Getz, and Jimmy Weaver, all successful solo artists coming together to make their style of alternative rock.

If their hard-hitting rock sounds familiar, it's because of the numerous times studios have used their work on promotional materials. "Gen V" isn't the first trailer to use Royal Deluxe's music, joining the likes of "The Magnificent Seven" and "24 Hours to Live." Fox's short-lived competition series "The Four," numerous video games, and Coors Light have used their music for their advertisements. Royal Deluxe is also a popular choice for sporting events, with the band's publisher, Position Music, citing the frequent use of their work for teams' walk-out songs.

Amazon's use of "I'm Gonna Do My Thing" really sets the tone for "Gen V," which looks like it could be even bloodier than "The Boys." Either way, 2023 is shaping up to be a massive year for fans of the studio's hit show, with both Season 4 of "The Boys" and the spinoff set to premiere next year.
