Bill Nye the Science Guy’s new Netflix show Bill Nye Saves the World premieres this Friday, and news has now come out that the show’s new theme song was created by Tyler, the Creator.
Tyler, the Creator’s take draws from the iconic theme from the original Bill Nye the Science Guy show. Like the previous theme, Tyler’s show has a repetitive fast-paced chanting of the name “Bill!”
The theme is first featured in a tweet from Saturday, showing Nye and Tyler discussing the song’s inspiration and Tyler talking about watching Bill Nye growing up.
“That show got kids to not hate science class and that full-on worked,” Tyler told Nye. Nye then responded to Tyler saying “You like science, look at you now.”
