bill nye saves the world

Educational legend Bill Nye the Science Guy has a new series on Netflix, and a new series demands a new theme tune. But not just any new theme tune. For 'Bill Nye Saves the World', Nye hooked up with rapper Tyler, the Creator to give an old tune a fresh new feel.

The new theme still features the popular refrain "Bill! Bill! Bill!" from the old theme, but adds a pounding beat and throws in some new lyrics.

You can listen to it here (and see Tyler and Bill shooting the breeze about the classic show).

It turns out that Tyler is a big Bill Nye fan. He took on the task of making a new theme tune in order to pay homage to the original.

"The first one is really sick," he said. "I love the fast pacedness of it. You take out that snare, it could be a house song."

He added: "That show... It got kids to not hate science class. And that worked. That full-on worked."

'Bill Nye Saves the World' is a talk show focussing on science and its relationship with politics, pop culture and society. It's available now on Netflix.
