Come and Get Your Love

MAJOR SPOILERS FOR GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!<br><br><br><br>The first Guardians of The Galaxy movie opens to Come and Get Your Love by Redbone, as Peter Quill is casually dancing on the planet Morag. Fittingly enough, one of the last shots of Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 3, and this team as a whole, is set to this very same song, as Rocket leads his team on another mission.
