Kraken Up is a song by the Squid Squad.


Kraken Up is, like most Squid Squad songs, a fast-paced rock song with prominent drums and guitar. The song mostly features singing to accompany the backing instruments but also includes some short instrumental sections on synthesiser, the latter of which is played alongside the vocals. This is followed by a rap section with slightly stripped-back instruments which plays twice before the first sung line is played again and the song loops. Kraken Up is one of the five battle songs released with Splatoon at launch. Like all battle songs, it has a random chance of being played during online matches. It can also be heard in Squid Beatz, and is included in Splatune

It is also featured in the soundtrack for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It has a chance of playing on Moray Towers, and can also be heard in the Sounds section in the Vault menu.



Kraken Up is a pun on 'cracking up', but including a Kraken, which appears elsewhere in Splatoon.
