"Jedi Rocks" is a song from the Star Wars franchise, first appearing in the 1997 Special Edition of the 1983 film Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. It is a song that Sy Snootles, Joh Yowza, and the Max Rebo Band perform for Jabba the Hutt in his palace.

The performers of the song are unknown and uncredited.


[Koo nee tang, na' na' na', ah lawah. Koo nee tang!]

Whoop! Uh-oh!

Other Appearances

  • Though the song is cut off in the film, the entirety, which features additional instrumental, was featured on the film's soundtrack.
  • The song was featured in the video game Star Wars Galaxies.
  • The song can be heard in the video game Star Wars: Battlefront II in Assault Mode.

  • The song replaced the song "Lapti Nek" from the theatrical version of Return of the Jedi.
    • The Special Edition replacing "Lapti Nek" with "Jedi Rocks" has been infamously despised by hardcore Star Wars fans and purists, claiming that "Jedi Rocks" is an annoying and out-of-place addition to the film.
  • In-universe, the song was improvised by Sy Snootles. Apparently, she made many grammatical mistakes in her Huttese during the song, and the subject matter of the song was considered inappropriate.
