The OG band behind the ‘Cowboy Bebop’ OST reunited online to perform the theme song

Cowboy Bebop” fans, ready for a nostalgia trip? Japanese band Seatbelts reunited for an online performance of the show’s theme song.

Last Apr. 24, the band posted the video conference performance, and they made sure to bring the whole shebang: shakers, trumpets, cellos and all. The band was originally assembled back in 1998 specifically to perform the score for “Cowboy Bebop.” In short, they’re legends.

As an extra treat, Seatbelts performed a four-minute rendition of the song—that’s twice as long as the show’s opening, which clocks in at a standard two minutes. 

If you’re in a jazzy space-age bounty hunter mood, check out the performance below:
