Headhammer (Splatoon 3 Enter the Splatlands Invitational 2022)

This version played on YouTube Splatoon 3 Enter the Splatlands Invitational 2022 during the waiting screens. It has a proper outro and it is played in mono audio.


The name is a play on "hammerhead", as in hammerhead sharks. It may also be referencing the act of headbanging, slang for nodding one's head violently to fast rock or metal music.
