Yoshiki’s Golden Anthem

X Japan leader Yoshiki was chosen to compose the theme song for the 2012 Golden Globe Awards ceremony, which is  Jan. 15 in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Yoshiki attended last year’s awards ceremony with comic book giant Stan Lee, where he was introduced to the show’s organizers, according to the Sankei Sports newspaper.

Last November, they offered him the opportunity to write the evening’s theme song for the 2012 awards.
