Bill Nye has been around for-EVER, but for his new Netflix series, he’s called in some decidedly modern help to ~hip things up~ a bit — like getting rapper and producer Tyler, The Creator to write the new Bill Nye theme song. It pays homage to the old tune, which will forever be stuck in your head after reading this, but makes it, well, cooler.

In a conversation with Nye, Tyler told the Science Guy that he was psyched to help the man out, saying that Nye’s original show made kids “not hate science.” Which is *exactly* the point of Nye’s whole schtick. The new theme song also makes science seem cool (seriously, who’s better than Tyler, The Creator to do that?).

Nye was pumped listening to the preview of the new theme song, which will play before his Netflix show, Bill Nye Saves The World.

Said Nye, “He’s got the beat!”

You have to admit, it’s pretty catchy. Check out the original below for comparison.
