Band Hopes To Kick Butt With ‘Karate Kid’ Inspired Music

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Karate Kid is an iconic 80’s flick, and now one band is hoping to please die- hard fans with their Karate Kid inspired music video.

That’s the note being sung by Pete Mitchell, frontman of No More Kings, whose “Sweep The Leg” music video feature stars from The Karate Kid like Billy Zabka, Ralph Macchio, and Martin Cove, and has garnered more than one million hits on

The video is an homage to Mitchell’s favorite movie and depicts the life of “Johnny” [Billy Zabka], 20 years after making The Karate Kid.

Mitchell had tons of fun making the video and living out his 80’s dreams, but admits he was stressing about having the original cast members in the mix.

Says Mitchell: “We were all nervous because the movie is so sacred to Billy, Ralph, and Michael. We just wanted to do it justice and make it funny without screwing up the greatness that is The Karate Kid.

Mitchell is happy with the outcome of the video and the outpouring fan support for the band.

He adds, “People who love The Karate Kid are coming to our shows without knowing anything about us. They figure we’re fans of movie so we must be cool. People come dressed in their Ralph Macchio T-Shirts and Michael Cove even comes with his kids to our shows.”
