Watch out James Corden, The Offspring‘s “Coming for You.”

The punk rockers have announced the launch of Cockpit Karaoke, a parody of The Late Late Show‘s viral Carpool Karaoke segments. Instead of driving around with a British TV host, Cockpit Karaoke finds frontman — and licensed pilot — Dexter Holland singing along with guitarist Noodles while flying an airplane.

The first episode, featuring an airborne version of “Come Out and Play,” is streaming now via SPIN.com.

“We know everyone’s heard of Carpool Karaoke, but Cockpit Karaoke??? No one’s done that!!” Holland tells SPIN. “Since I’m a pilot, we thought it would be great if Noodles and I had some fun and got to sing along to some of our many hits.”

Meanwhile, The Offspring released their new album, Let the Bad Times Roll, this past April. It’s the band’s first record in nine years.
