Theme Song?

Postby revivingjula » Tue May 10, 2011 12:20 am

Okay, this is probably going to seem really silly to most, but is the Primus theme song still used? I haven't had cable in years, and the last few seasons I've just watched online...

It's a remixed version. It's still the original lyrics, but with Les Claypool's "Whamola" playing in the background instead of the original Priums music. (Claypool is the singer/bassist for Primus, FYI)

Yeah, I know who Les Claypool is. And that is kinda interesting to hear. I mean, for a TV series that came out in the Late 90's Primus was a key sound bite for that time. I guess because it is almost a decade and a half later, they had to make it not sound so...90's. I mean, if Dawson's Creek was still on, would they still have the straight up Paula Cole song either, most likely not.

Starting to make me feel old!

They remixed it for season 4 and 7 as well (techno and bluegrass). Not sure when the current version debuted, but probably around season 11. Even the season 1 theme was a sped up version of the original Primus version: it was later used as the outro.
