Mortal Kombat Theme? Gah!
Like many people of a certain age, I have an involuntary, visceral reaction to the sound of the Mortal Kombat theme. I wasn't even a huge fan of the game or the first set of movies, but that theme with the New Line logo in theatres was just... yeah. Les bumps de goose sont strong.
So when I saw on io9 that there's a new version of the theme for the upcoming reboot, I was both intrigued and highly skeptical. The last thing we need is a faux-Skrillex version of a baby-techno legend, right?
Nope! It's exactly what we need!
A very very very big tip of the cap to Benjamin Wallfisch for adding layers to that song that I never would have dreamed of. You have made my weekend, sir.
