Welcome to the Danger Zone: The Story Behind Kenny Loggins’s ‘Danger Zone’

The yacht rock tune that is simultaneously cheesy and badass, “(Highway to the) Danger Zone” has all the swagger of a fighter pilot and is every bit as cocky as every aviator you’ll ever meet. I don’t enjoy this track ironically, as so many of the “cool kids” do; this track is one of the defining anthems of my life. Wixor’s thrash metal cover was the theme song for my old podcast, and I still turn either one up to 11 when I’ve got the top down–traffic or no.

The ‘Top Gun’ tune hit a bit of turbulence.
