Metafilter Request Raffle - MST3k Theme

September 5, 2013 3:05 AM

My assignment: "A genre-bending cover of the Mystery Science 3000 theme, any season, any genre. "

I used the lyrics from the "Joel" seasons, and for genre I went with "Magnetic Fields ripoff homage"


Track recorded and mixed in Ableton Live 9. I used two free plugins that I highly recommend - the TAL Togu Reverb 1 and Lowcoders/bitplant "King Dubby Delay".

You are awesome and you should feel awesome. I cannot wait to see what your challenger thinks of this.

How did you know I was a huge Magnertic Feilds fanboy? Oh man, I assumed someone would rock it up, not go in this totally new and interesting direction, love love love it.


Hooray for challenges!

nice, i've actually tried and failed to do a chambery choir version of this (kinda riffing on the mellow synth-organ version they play at the end of each episode) I'll try again, but I invite anyone who actually has a nice voice to take the idea and run with it.

Awesome. I've always been tempted to do "Master Ninja Theme Song". This song makes my nostalgia grapes moisten.

This is why MeFiMu is the best thing ever, ever.

I've come back to this so many times over the years and it never fails to delight me.
