Survivor + Jimi Hendrix + The Whispers = The funkiest version of Eye Of The Tiger you’ll ever hear

Metal Hammer

When Queen turned down Sylvester Stallone’s request to use Another One Bites The Dust as the theme tune for Rocky lll, the actor/director approached Chicago rock band Survivor and asked if they could write a punchy song which would complement the story and feel of the second sequel to his hugely successful, Oscar-winning 1976 film  Rocky.

The result, premiered when Rocky lll opened in US cinemas on May 28, 1982, was Eye Of The Tiger, which, when released as a single, went on to top the US charts for six weeks, later topping the UK charts for four weeks.
