Nothing hits me right in the nostalgia quite like Bill Nye. When the TV would role out in science class, we knew it was time for some Bill Nye the Science Guy. And the theme song to that show was incredibly memorable. Now with his new show comes a new theme.

Tyler, The Creator was asked to create the theme for Bill’s new Netflix show Bill Nye Saves the World. Tyler has an interesting sound and a very interesting approach to the theme. As Nye puts it himself, it’s a tip of the hat to the original song. The “Bill!”‘s are intact, everyone! Rest easy. We only get a snippet of the theme and a snippet of the new opening but it’s great. It’s all a nod to the original while bringing in something fresh.


We can tell he’s doing something fresh with the preview we were given earlier this month. But additionally, in the opening, we see Bill taking off his lab coat and putting on a suit jacket. No more labs for him! As for the song, it may be jarring to those who love the original theme. It’s not an electro-rock fest. It’s…well it’s its own sound.

What do you think of the new theme for Bill Nye? Check out the teaser below and let us know what you think. Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more Science! news.

And of course, the original for those needing their fix.
