Preview of Dragon Ball Z - Battle of Gods Anime Movie Theme

As a way of providing listeners with a special New Year’s treat, radio station Tokyo FM recently aired an early preview of the theme song to the upcoming Dragon Ball Z movie, Battle of the Gods. The theme is still the iconic Cha-La-Head-Cha-La, but instead of Hironobu Kageyama’s original version, the movie’s theme will be a cover version by rock band Flow, who’s already had a hand in various anime themes such as Naruto, Beelzebub, Code Geass, Eureka 7, and Heroman.

You can listen to Flow’s version below:

…and compare it to the 1989 original:

Flow’s version seems to be a decent cover of Kageyama’s song, as it preserves the melody, only updating the tempo and the instruments. The vocals are also nicely done, and wouldn’t sound out of place in the original. We’re also kind of glad they didn’t try to stick a rap section in there somewhere.
