Aerosmith, David Bowie, others Writing Songs for 'Spongebob Musical'

September 1, 2015

Believe it or not, a surprisingly large amount of talented artists have signed on to write songs for the upcoming theatrical production of Spongebob Squarepants, called The Spongebob Musical. Some of the artists contributing original songs to the musical include David Bowie, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Cyndi Lauper, The Flaming Lips, John Legend, Lady Antebellum, Plain White T's, and T.I. 

Out of all of the contributing artists, David Bowie is already closely familiar with the cartoon as he previously lent his voice to the cartoon's 2007 made-for-tv movie SpongeBob's Atlantis SquarePantis as the role of Lord Royal Highness.
