What's The Song In Netflix's Cobra Kai Season 5 Trailer?

Cobra Kai is back in action once again, as Season 5 of the hit spin-off of "The Karate Kid" is set to hit Netflix on Sept. 9. It's about time, too, as devoted fans of the series have been waiting since the end of 2021 when "Cobra Kai" Season 4 ended off with arguably the show's most massive cliffhanger to date. In the wake of the All Valley Tournament, athlete-slash-villain Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) is the most powerful and influential he's ever been, and Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio), Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), and their karate-loving students are on their back foot. Season 5 promises a spectacular pay-off to this conflict, as the show's massive ensemble cast unites to take down the biggest threat to the world of karate yet.

Several weeks ahead of the Season 5 premiere, Netflix released a near-three-minute trailer for the new installment to give fans an exciting tease at what the future has in store for the show's protagonists. While there's plenty of small details fans may have missed in the "Cobra Kai" Season 5 trailer, there's one part of the video that's near-impossible to miss: the rocking song it's set to. For those curious to learn more about the song and why it's such a great fit for the series, read on.

Cobra Kai's got another thing comin'

While the song that the "Cobra Kai" Season 5 trailer is set to may sound somewhat familiar to general audiences, devoted music lovers will likely have no trouble identifying it. The song in question is none other than the 1982 heavy metal hit "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" by the English band Judas Priest. It's not the first time that the song has featured in relation to the series either, as it was also heard in an episode of Season 4. It's not too difficult to understand why it keeps showing up.

"You've Got Another Thing Comin'" isn't just a perfect song for this particular trailer, but a great encapsulation of "Cobra Kai" as a whole. The synth guitar riffs scream "1980s action flick," which calls back to the show's 1984 forebearer "The Karate Kid." Moreover, the song's lyrics mirror the show's "underdog" themes as the group sings about rising up against seemingly-insurmountable odds, which is exactly what the members of the Miyagi-Do dojo will need to do in the upcoming season.

Judas Priest's greatest hit is certainly a good way to amp up audiences in preparation for the release of "Cobra Kai" Season 5. Even executive producer Jon Hurwitz tweeted that he was "obsessed" with the trailer and its tone. However, only time will tell if Daniel and his peers will live by the words of the anthem and successfully take down Terry instead of sitting around as the world goes by.
