Freddy’s Friday Night Dance Party!: He’s A Maniac – Maniac Cop Edition!

maniaccopMan have I got a beast master of a song for tonight’s Dance Party!! For the first time in a good number of years, I rewatched William Lustig’s Maniac Cop 2 a few weeks back and much to my unknowing rapper’s delight, there was a song at the end of the movie. Sounds normal, right? You expect a song at the end of any movie, but when that song has a poppin’ hip-hop beat laid out to some intricate and dope lyrics about the story and dangers of the Maniac Cop himself, Matt Cordell, well, all just becomes right with the world. There is unfortunately no official music video for this one, but this fan made clip will do just fine - the song is more than good enough on its own. Just listen for yourself.

Can you believe that shit is REAL?! Real fucking awesome! I mean, where do I even begin? How about the Maniac Cop himself throwing his police issued cap into the hip-hop ring with his Miranda rights styled chorus! Or how about some of these crazy lyrics even…” Set him on fire, I shoot him with an uzi, but he’ll show up in your Jacuzzi!” Jacuzzi?! Is this a Maniac Cop that patrols the streets of the Jersey Shore? Better watch out, Snooki! Oh yeah, and the name of the song is get this…Maniac Cop Rap!

jaychattawayI really tried to find out who the”lyricists” were behind this masta-piece, but I had no luck at all. The song as well as the entire Maniac Cop 2 OST is composed by Jay Chattaway who has composed a ton of films and television, including the first Maniac Cop. Is there a chance that Mr. Chattaway was the M.C. behind this classic track? Look at this guy…he has thug Doug written all over him. Maybe he and Ted Turner can team up and create the hottest rap duo since Kid ‘n Play.

“You have the right to remain silent…forever!”


  1. This made my day. Thank you.

  2. I think it's Dead Mike, MC Gusto, and Stab Master Arson

  3. Haha! Incredible.

    Thanks for posting this, Matt, and reminding me that I've never seen Maniac Cop 2. Need to remedy that.

  4. Booya! Bust open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

  5. ^ ROFL @ Walk the Dinosaur!

    You know what's sad? I totally remember this and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for posting the youtube vid.

    80s horror movie loved busting out rap songs at the end films. Examples are this one and some of the Nightmares.

  6. FF: That would explain everything!

    Chris: You should check it out...It's a fun little Slasher film that works very well and even when it gets kinda silly (and it does!), it still has things going on that are worth breaking down for some deeper meaning in a strange way.

    POT!: OHHHH-SNAP!! You be straight buggin', CTK!

    Geof: There are few things better than some crazy bad rap song from a horror movie, Geof! I love it with all my heart and I wish that was still a fad that carried on today.

    If you go back to some of the early Freddy's Friday Night Dance Parties, you will find all of the Nightmare rap videos...they are pure gold!

  7. I'd forgotten about the rap, honestly - but I concur, MANIAC COP 2 is a sweet-ass flick.

  8. It sure is....I love the great car chases and the finale is something else for sure. And Danny Trejo is in it for 2 seconds!
