Esquire teamed up with Nashville alt-country artist J.P Harris to produce an anthem for our upcoming Srirachapocalypse. The new theme song is set to Woodie Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" and has a music video set to Sriracha pics snagged from Instagram. Damn if it didn't make us nostalgic for the sauce, even though the much-hyped shortage hasn't even come (and might never).

The video doesn't seem to be embeddable yet, but you can watch/listen on the Esquire website.

It's all a response to issues that have plagued Southern California's Huy Foods lo these past few months, from the intense, spicy odor of the chili crushing that allegedly left Irwindale residents with heartburn and nosebleeds, to yesterday's news that the California Department of Health has shut down the factory until it can apply stricter guidelines to how the sauce is made.

If you love the stuff, you might as well start stockpiling it now just in case. And let's all hold hands and sing along with the chorus of this new love song: "This sauce was made for you and me."
