Steve Aoki & Travis Barker Proclaim ‘You’re the Best’ at 2020 MTV Movie & TV Awards

News

If you’re going to honor the “Greatest of All Time,” there’s only one thing you can say: You’re the best around.

At Sunday night’s “MTV Movie & TV Awards: Greatest of All Time” special, Steve Aoki and Travis Barker acted as the night’s house band, with Aoki spinning classic movie music (think “Footloose” after Kevin Bacon accepted the GOAT: Dance Your Ass Off award) as Barker banged away on his drum set along to the songs.

While they  gave us little snippets throughout the night, the duo wrapped up the Vanessa Hudgens-hosted show with a full finale of Joe Esposito’s “You’re the Best” from the 1984 Karate Kid soundtrack, in honor of William Zabka’s GOAT: Zero to Hero prize. Aoki and Barker played a remixed version of the song — which soundtracks the karate tournament montage in the hit movie — wearing full skeleton bodysuits and makeup.

The night’s winners were projected above them on the gilded-goat set, including Jamie Lee Curtis (GOAT: Scream Queen), Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore (GOAT: Duo) and Kevin Hart (GOAT: Comedy Giant).

Following the show, Aoki took to Twitter to gauge fan interest in releasing the remix for real. “Who wants me and @travisbarker version of you’re the best to officially come out??” he asked.
