Fans of Bob's Burgers—and there is no reason you should not be among them—know that the opening credits are not to be skipped. The show's recurring sight gags are well-documented, but what about the theme song? Thanks to the awesome podcast Song Exploder, here's the full story behind the jangly ukulele tune introducing us to Bob every week.

Song Exploder is made for the music nerd. In its own words, it's a podcast where "musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made." In this episode, Loren Bouchard, the series creator and theme song writer of Bob's Burgers, takes us through all the weird instruments he buys off eBay.

In other episodes, you've got Dntel taking us through "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight" (holy shit, it's 11-years-old now) and YACHT on their new single "Plastic Soul." Music nerds, have at it.
