Hot Take: The Bugsnax Theme Song

Hot Take: The Bugsnax Theme Song

Literal ear worms

During today’s Day of the Devs Summer Showcase pre-show, Kero Kero Bonito did a livestreamed performance of the Bugsnax theme song.

The British electro-funk pop group has always had a knack for enjoyable, smile-inducing jams, and when it was announced that they would be handling the theme song to the upcoming game from Young Horses it felt like a perfect fit. Now, we have that jam in our heads, and we can’t get it out.

So what does that mean? It means that our interest in Bugsnax has now grown. I still have no idea what the game is about, by the way. Is it about bugs? Snacks?

The song has a good head-bobbing feel, and the lyrics are easy to remember: “Something something, something something, BUGSNAX!” There’s a fair bit of synth here, which I thoroughly enjoy. It’s not necessarily a radio tune, and not one we’ll be playing in our car, but it should fit right in on home audio — especially since it’ll be coming out of the speakers or TV attached to my SHINY NEW PS5*!

*if I can afford one

Hot Take Verdict: It’s good.
