Bill Nye – science guy, educator, mechanical engineer, and curator of curiosity – returns with a new show. But for the millennials he is known as our favorite science teacher. And is known to have the most catchiest theme songs in the 90's. 

Twenty-five years later the guy in the lab coat and the bow-tie made science cool with his Saturday morning PBS show, Nye is returning to save the world. And the new theme song for his brand new Netflix show, April 21 – literally called Bill Nye Saves the World, is produced by none other than former Odd Future frontman Tyler, the Creator, rap's freakiest geek and a self-professed longtime fan. "That show got kids to not hate science class," Tyler, the creator said. "That full-on worked."

Tyler's production pays homage to Nye's original theme song, which was notably hip considering the content. "Yeah the first one is really sick," Tyler says. "I love the fast-pacedness of it. You take out that snare, it could be a house song." Which I totally agree!

For the new version, Tyler amps up the bass and seasons it with his own call-and-response, blasting out "Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill!" followed by "saves the wooorld." Nerdy enough, but it still meets Nye's cool barometer: "He's the man," Nye says before hugging it out with Tyler. "He got the beat. He understood the beat."
