Bill Nye’s Bill Nye Saves the World just got even more lit thanks to the help of Tyler, the Creator! The rapper is behind the the theme song for Nye's upcoming Netflix show and it includes some elements from the original Bill Nye The Science Guy, which aired from 1993-1998.

"Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill!" Tyler chants atop a catchy, jingling beat. The science educator has always made learning about things like chemistry and biology fun, but having someone like the Odd Future leader work on theme song gives the new series a fresh spin. 

Prior to the song's official release, Nye and Tyler chatted about its creation. “That show got kids to not hate science class and that full-on worked,” Tyler said. Nye responded, “You like science, look at you now.” The rapper also weighed in on the original version, stating “Yeah the first one is really sick. I love the fast pacedness of it. You take out that snare, it could be a house song."

Bill Nye Saves the World premieres on Netflix this Friday (April 21). Karlie Kloss, Derek Muller, Nazeem Hussain, Joanna Hausmann, and Emily Calandrell will be the educator's special correspondents. His celebrity guests also include Alton Brown, Zach Braff, Rachel Bloom, Tim Gunn, Steve Aoki, Joel McHale, Donald Faison and more. Click here to view the trailer and keep the nostalgia train running with the latest episode of Fuse's Besterday podcast:
