Skrillex is the stage name of Sonny Moore, who was born on January 15th, 1988, in Los Angeles, California, United States. His first venture as a professional musician was as the lead singer of the ‘post punk’ rock band ‘From First To Last,’ he was a member between 2004-2007, which saw the band release two studio Albums. As a solo artist Skrillex has released one studio Album,’Recess,’ in 2014. In 2013 Skrillex teamed up with fellow music producer Diplo (see also best songs 915 and 210,) and in 2015 they collaborated on the Album ‘Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack U.’
The vocals on ‘Bangarang’ are provided by the Rapper/singer Sara Mitchell, who is better known by her stage name ‘Sirah,’ she has also provided the vocals on other Skrillex tracks including the singles ‘Weekends, and ‘Kyoto.’
The songs title, and video both pay homage to the 1991 movie ‘Hook,’ the battle cry of the ‘Lost Boys’ is ‘Bangarang.’ The Peter Pan, and Captain Hook theme continue in the official video, with the ice-cream truck driver’s style of moustache, his right hand having a tattoo of a crocodile, and after losing his hand earlier in the video, it is seen as replaced by a hook.
‘Shout to all my lost boys, sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shouts to all my lost boys, we rowdy.’
