Rick and Morty fans, are you having withdrawals from the series? The third season is supposed to come out later this year, but to help make the long wait bearable, we’ve got something schwifty for you!
Eric Calderone (a.k.a. Erock) has dropped a terrific metal cover of the Rick and Morty theme. Ryan Elder’s music really lends itself to this treatment, and you can definitely hear that Doctor Who influence in his theme.
We have to assume that there are people who haven’t yet discovered the joys of Rick and Morty. So for those of you who haven’t seen the series, it’s about a mad scientist named Rick and the crazy adventures that he shares with his grandson, Morty. Series creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have turned it into one of the wildest sci-fi comedies that we’ve ever seen.
If Calderone is so inclined, there are other musical pieces from this show that deserve the metal treatment as well. In particular, Rick and Morty’s “Get Schwifty” should be the next song in line, because its catchy riff saved the Earth from being destroyed during an intergalactic reality show. What do you say, Erock? Show me what you got!
Calderone’s metal covers are greatly enjoyed by our team. We’ve recently featured his takes on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Guile’s theme from Street Fighter II. You can find more of Calderone’s music at Metalyze.com or his frequently updated YouTube channel.
