For many fans, Shinichiro Watanabe’s classic series Cowboy Bebop was a formative anime experience. To this day, however, it seems that even more than the show’s memorable cast, gripping story, and fluid animation, what endures the most is the celebrated soundtrack. Chief among the jazzy Yoko Kanno-led tracks is the iconic opening song of the series, “TANK!” performed by Japanese band, the SEATBELTS.
Now fans are being treated to a new take on the song, as the original band has come together in a Yoko Kanno (who may or may not be a shadowy figure dancing in the video) produced virtual performance of the song to entertain those staying at home. the SEATBELTS have uploaded an extended four-minute performance of Cowboy Bebop’s opening to YouTube!
Hopefully there are more Bebop performances on the way as fans now wait a little bit longer for the recently announced and delayed Netflix live-action take on the series, featuring a cast of John Cho (Spike Spiegel), Mustafa Shakir (Jet Black), Daniella Pineda (Faye Valentine), and Alex Hassell (Vicious).
