The Angry Video Game Critic Theme Song

[Guitar Guy]
He's gonna take you back to the past
To ball these reviews out of his ass
He'd rather have a crocodile pin him down and suck on his cock
He'd rather eat some rotten dog shit, then drown it down with Rolling Rock

He's the world's biggest and greatest cynic
He's the Angry Video Game Critic
He's the Angry Video Game Critic

Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie

Main article: Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack#Tracks

Music composer Bear McCreary adapted and arranged the main theme in Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie from Kyle Justin's original theme song. The theme does not include any vocals, but feature an array of 8 and 16-bit chiptunes, symphonic bits and heavy metal rhythms.

Bear McCreary remix

Bear McCreary included a remixed version of the full Angry Video Game Nerd Theme Song on the motion picture soundtrack to Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie. The remixed track includes Kyle Justin's original vocals but have redone electric guitar and drums, played to mimic the original music.

Trivia

  • The melody of the chorus in the original theme song may have been inspired by "FM Piano Test" from the video game Quartet.
  • Both lines "He'd rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in his ear" and "He'd rather eat the rotten asshole of a roadkill skunk and down it with beer" in the Theme Song are referencing phrases the Nerd says in the Back to the Future episode at the 0:45, and 4:28 mark.
