Songs About Chewbacca

When people talk about the Star Wars universe, several obvious candidates for “favorite character” emerge. Lots of people will say Han Solo. Boba Fett is a wildly popular answer. Others have said Darth Vader… before 2003 or so. Ladies love Leia (and men too when it comes to that crazy bikini from The Jabba Collection at Victoria’s Secret). But on rare occasions, you meet the special person who identifies the coolest character as Chewbacca. Bully for them, I say. Chewbacca was indeed great. He’s so great that he’s been honored in song on multiple occasions. Here are some examples:

Note: I don’t own the rights to any of these songs, and I suppose I should slap a NSFW warning with some of the lyrics.


Supernova, Chewbacca
The Supernova song was popularized in the mid-90’s when it appeared on the Clerks soundtrack. It remains my favorite of all the Chewbacca songs. 

D.V.D.A., I Am Chewbacca
D.V.D.A. is a band formed by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

Niña, Chubaca Tiene un Secreto
This is from a Mexican indie rock band. It’s apparently about a guy who sees his girlfriend at the movies with another guy. Maybe he was hairy? I’m not sure. My spanish is very limited.

The Liquid Tension Experiment, Chewbacca
The Liquid Tension Experiment went in a different direction, performing an instrumental song about Chewbacca:

The New Wookies, Chewbacca Is Not Your Friend
Similarly, The New Wookies have created a sort-of dance song about Chewbacca. It can be found here.

And then there’s… this- Chewbacca Sings the Blues
Uh, I guess Chewbacca was against the war in Iraq? Near as I can tell, it’s just a Youtube video that someone created.

Machoman, Wookie Wookie
This song is dripping with WTFiness. It seems to be from Denmark. And technically, it’s about having sex everywhere (including, as you will see, the kitchen). So it’s not really about Chewbacca. But anyone using the word “wookie” is clearly paying homage to Chewie.

  1. Who would ever of thought that there were so many songs about Chewy!!

    I love the supernova one!! I remember that one vividly!

    I am a Bobba Fett man myself, which I am afraid is pretty obvious!!

  2. Don’t forget this timeless classic:

  3. It’s just one line in a song, but the Bloodhound Gang’s immortal-ish Fire Water Burn has the lyric “I’m kind of like Han Solo always stroking my own wookie.” So, maybe it deserves a footnote in your list.
