The official theme song of Hot Doug's. Accept no substitute, beeatches.
Chicago pop band bee is releasing a new version of “The Theme From Hot Doug’s,” and all proceeds will to go Intonation Music Workshop (IMW), a Chicago nonprofit that provides free music education to kids in low-income and dangerous neighborhoods. Doug Sohn, who is on the IMW Honorary Board and has been a generous benefactor, has teamed up with bee to create an opportunity for people to get a little bit of the Hot Doug’s vibe and help IMW “without having to wait in line for 90 minutes,” as Sohn says.
Written by Markos specifically for Hot Doug’s back when it opened (and there were no lines!), “The Theme From Hot Doug’s” has been re-recorded, and the new version features Chicago native and superstar drummer Todd Sucherman (Styx, Brian Wilson) and was mastered by Grammy-nominated mastering engineer Marcos Sueiro. Somewhere near the nexus of The Ramones, The Strokes, and the early Who, it’s 2 minutes of pure pop hooks and energy.
Nicholas Markos has performed live with numerous bands (including solo opening slots for Bob Dylan, Violent Femmes, Todd Rundgren and others), performed live with Hot Doug at the Rosemont Theatre on the Guy Fieri Roadshow), scored documentary films, written music for commercials (including for the Chicago White Sox), collaborated on remixes with members of Journey and REO Speedwagon, been embroiled in a real-life rock-and-roll soap opera with Factory Records artist Cath Carroll and Santiago Durango of Big Black, gotten himself kicked out of several bands, and engaged in various fisticuffs and shouting matches with childhood friends in a range of bands.
