An Impeccable Cover of the Futurama Theme on Damn Near Every Instrument

The two rules of amateur music production: 1) Anything can be recorded reasonably well with an SM57. 2) You can never own too many instruments.

SquidPhysics proved both those rules (that I absolutely just made up) with his astounding cover of the Futurama theme. He lays down parts for the song on drums, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, trumpet, cowbell, bongos, shakers, and a variety of synth sounds. It’s damn close to—and in some way, better than—the original.


Although the theme was inspired by a French psychedelic rock song, parts of this cover also have a serious Cake vibe to them. Good luck not listening to Comfort Eagle today.
