Watch The Offspring Cover Here Kitty Kitty – Which Is Not” Joe Exotic’s Song

The Offspring have released a socially-distanced cover of Here Kitty Kitty, popularised – but not written – by the Tiger King himself, Joe Exotic.

Not only do we have Joe Exotic to thank for one of the most entertaining – and downright disturbing – documentaries of recent memory, but he’s also seemingly partly responsible for The Offspring releasing their first new’ song in several years: a cover of Here Kitty Kitty.

The California punk rock heroes have taken on a socially-distanced version of the tune made famous by Tiger King – though, as the band clarify, it was originally written by the Clinton Johnson band. That’s right, people, if you hadn’t already realised, Joe Exotic does not write or sing his songs.

Of their cat-tastic new cover and video, The Offspring write:

Hey, guys! Like many of you, we are going a little stir crazy these days and we wanted to do something fun to put a smile on our faces, and hopefully on some of yours too. This song, Here Kitty Kitty, was originally by the Clinton Johnson band, and *not* by anyone in that recent documentary we all got caught up in. 

The Offspring wives were group texting recently, and while they all agreed that they truly love their husbands, there are times when they’ve absolutely felt like feeding us to the tigers. In that spirit, we hope you enjoy this random song & video.”

The band aren’t the first in the rock and metal scene to show their appreciation for all things Tiger King, with Marilyn Manson recently revealing that Joe Exotic once asked him for political endorsement. Sure.
