About

Bill Nye the Science Guy Remixes is a series of remix songs based on the theme song from the 1990s PBS children’s educational show Bill Nye the Science Guy.[1] They often appear as recut music videos featuring footage from other memorable television shows, movies or video games.

Origin

Bill Nye the Science Guy began airing on PBS Kids on September 10th, 1993, hosted by American educator Bill Nye.[3] and was designed to teach science to children in an entertaining manner. The original theme was written by composer Mike Green[2], who used a hip hop beat with a sampled vocal track repeatedly shouting “Bill” throughout the song. Though clips from the song were used in YTMND sites as early as May 2004[5], the first full-length remix of the song didn’t emerge until on January 7th, 2006[4], which infused hardcore techno beats into the theme. The song was later reuploaded to YouTube by several different users.



Spread

In 2007, a Spongebob remix appeared on Google Videos.[6] In 2008, more remixes appeared on Newgrounds[7] and on YouTube.[8] In October 2009, Symphony of Science released an auto-tune remix music video featuring footage of Carl Sagan and Bill Nye.

In March 2012, Texas remix artist Rodrigo Diaz, known online as Ynfynyt Scroll, did an interview with local newspaper the Observer[11] about his Bill Nye remix song, but the article (or the song? ambig. use of “it”) has since been taken offline. As of July 2012, there are more than 200 tracks tagged Bill Nye[9] on SoundCloud and 390 remix videos on YouTube.[12] Additional videos have appeared on the Tumblr tag “Bill Nye.”[10]
