The Moderatto song we heard on ‘Cobra Kai’

Came to Netflix the season 5 of cobra kaiand starts with the arrival of Johnny Lawrence Y robby a Mexicowith the aim of searching for Miguelwho crossed the border to find his biological father, Hector Salazarand what caught the attention of the Mexican public is that we were able to listen to one of the most popular groups in the country: moderate.

For the people who locate this band, they know that, in addition to being excellent musicians, sometimes they take eighties rock songs in English and change the lyrics, with a quite comical sense of humor, and in this case, it was perfect to sound Johnny’s arrival in Mexico, with the theme titled Villa Coapa.

This “trip to Mexico” has caused a lot of controversy and indignation on the part of the Mexican public, however, the appearance of Moderatto made us happy for the bitter pill full of stereotypes covered in a sepia tone that the producers decided to project in season 5 of cobra kai.

The song is a parody of the hit Unskinny Bop of the glam rock band, poisonwhich Moderatto parodied for his first album entitled Resurrectionand also stands out for going through the different mayors of Mexico Citysending greetings to those who live there.

The story behind the original song goes back to when the members of Poison were writing songs for their third album, Flesh & Bloodbased on a melody composed by the guitarist, CC DeVille.

The story goes that, while they were composing the song, there was a porn actress in the rehearsal room and the vocalist of Poison, Brett Michaelsbegan to improvise the lyrics in order to seduce her.

The meaning of “unskinny bop”which roughly translates as “the skinny little blow” and, according to DeVille, it doesn’t really have any real meaning, it was just what was left with the music and not even the members of Poison have the slightest idea what it means.

Greetings to Villa Coapa,
