“Aqua Teen Hunger Force” will apparently no longer be going by that name, which it’s held since its debut on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim in 2000. For the season premiere on May 8, they’ll be re-branded as “Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1.” What’s this have to do with music, you ask?

I’ve only ever seen a couple episodes, but that was more than enough for me to say this is dog turds compared to the original theme. And here I was, thinking Josh Homme could do no wrong. Just in case you’re not convinced, here’s the original for comparison. Followed by Meatwad, as a hand puppet, giving a very official press release about the upcoming change. Because it’s fantastic.
