Candy-Coated Rocks is a song performed by Damp Socks feat. Off the Hook that is featured in Splatoon 3.[1]


Candy-Coated Rocks is a pop rock song. It starts with an instrumentation consisting of guitar, drums, piano, and bass guitar. Then, Pearl starts singing, Marina starts singing later, and both of them sing the chorus together. Pearl starts singing again, this time with a higher pitched background. Marina sings once more before the band repeats, continuing with this higher pitch. It has a random chance of playing in a multiplayer battle.


You're listening to "Candy-Coated Rocks," the latest from Damp Socks feat. Off the Hook. Our audio anthropologist says Marina's subtle piano work wraps around the guitar like an eel wrapping itself around whatever eels wrap themselves around (she's not an eel scientist).

While on tour, Off the Hook seems to have scouted a few new members and reformed as an act calling itself "Damp Socks feat. Off the Hook". Listen to their hot new single, "Candy-Coated Rocks".
