Sure, they might've broken up in 2005, but that hardly stopped ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT from reuniting last Fall for a one-off performance geared toward the kindie set. The performance was for YO GABBA GABBA!, and tonight it's hit the web via Volcom as part of their partnership with the Nick Jr. hit on a line of clothing and accessories. Watch the video for "He's a Chef" below, then hit Volcom Retailers on September 21st to snag a limited-edition 7" copy of the song, which also features Biz Markie and FLAMING LIPS' Wayne Coyne rockin' the B-side.

Bonus: 100 Copies of the 7" Single will be given away at some point via Volcom's "It's Really Happening" site. BTW, the Chef? That's writer/actor Thomas Lennon of RENO 911 and NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM fame.
