Esquire teamed up with Nashville alt-country artist J.P Harris to produce an anthem for our upcoming Srirachapocalypse. The new theme song is set to Woodie Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" and has a music video set to Sriracha pics snagged from Instagram. Damn if it didn't make us nostalgic for the sauce, even though the much-hyped shortage hasn't even come (and might never).

The video doesn't seem to be embeddable yet, but you can watch/listen on the Esquire website.

It's all a response to issues that have plagued Southern California's Huy Foods lo these past few months, from the intense, spicy odor of the chili crushing that allegedly left Irwindale residents with heartburn and nosebleeds, to yesterday's news that the California Department of Health has shut down the factory until it can apply stricter guidelines to how the sauce is made.

If you love the stuff, you might as well start stockpiling it now just in case. And let's all hold hands and sing along with the chorus of this new love song: "This sauce was made for you and me."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
