Remember that feeling of elation when your teacher wheeled the big cathode ray tube TV into the classroom and slotted in the Bill Nye the Science Guy video tape? Bill! Bill! Bill!

But this is 2017 and so Bill Nye’s return of course has to come with a catchy new theme song by Tyler the Creator. 

For his new Netflix series Bill Nye Saves the World, the world’s favourite science guy (step aside, Professor Brian Cox) has fresh intro music that features the familiar “Bill! Bill! Bill!” chant but adds a bit more of a pulsating beat, as well as the words “saves the world”.

Tyler himself is actually a dedicated Bill Nye fan, and wanted to pay homage to the original Science Guy intro from 25 years ago.

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

To Nye’s delight, he adds: “It got kids to not hate science class. And that worked. That full-on worked.”
