complete soundtrack for cobra kai seasons 1 2

Cobra Kai – Picture: Sony Television

Cobra Kai is the modern-day continuation of the classic movies, The Karate Kid. Although set decades later, it’s still kept its 80s charm in part thanks to its superb soundtrack. Here’s a complete breakdown of every song featured in seasons 1 and 2 of Cobra Kai

For those out of the loop, seasons 1 and 2 of Cobra Kai touched down on Netflix globally on August 28th, 2020 after its tenure at YouTube. The series continues where The Karate Kid III left of albeit it several decades later with Ralph Macchio as Daniel LeRusso and William Zabka as Johnny much older.

For the first two seasons, 59 songs featured in total with more on the way in the form of season 3 that’s due out in early 2021.

Michelle Kuznetsky serves as the music supervisor for the show. Leo Birenberg & Zach Robinson both are in charge of the music for the series (and will be returning for season 3 too). Leo has worked on titles such as PEN15 for Hulu and Plus One. Zach Robinson has credits against Ant-Man, Edge of Tomorrow, and Die Hart.

As a result of Leo’s and Zach’s effort, they’ve put together an OST that perfectly captures the essence of a good 80s movie but updating it. The OST tracks include:

  • Slither
  • Venomous
  • Quiver
  • The All-Valley Tournament
  • Stone vs. Diaz
  • The Cobra and the Mongoose
  • Time Out
  • Final Match
  • No Mercy
  • Balance
