If you’ve managed to rid your head of the Bugsnax theme song, you’re a stronger person than us. We haven't stopped humming and singing the welcomingly infectious tune ever since the PlayStation 5 games reveal event and it doesn't look like we're the only ones. In fact, the song is about all social media is willing to discuss in a positive manner right now and it has already given rise to some fantastic cover tracks.
First up is Kinda Funny's very own Andy Cortez, who has come up with a rather sombre take on the tune. It's quite the contrast to the upbeat vibes of the Bugsnax theme song, but this simply demonstrates the sort of mileage these deep and meaningful lyrics have.
And then we have this pop-punk cover from Twitter user Arwings. It definitely takes the tune and runs with it, quickening the beat to an electrifying pace to the point where you can hardly keep up. We suppose that's appropriate for one of 2020's Game of the Year frontrunners though.
We love all of these covers of the classic Bugsnax theme song, but are any of them actually better than the original? No way, that's impossible! Talkin 'bout Bugsnax.

i weep for the mankind and anyone who would buy this song.
came to the conclusion Liam has some really bizarre tastes
Kero kero bonito for anyone wondering
I don't know why Bugsnax is getting a lot of flack. Seems like if it's not an indie game with a big scope like Kena then people seem to want to outright dismiss it.
its not because its a indie game, its because it looks like a awful indie game and i love indie games/. far superior indie games out there which are a lot older than this
@suikoden It looks amazing.
My kids have been singing it for a week! Caught myself humming it while brushing my teeth this morning lol. Game looks bizarre but the fact they said it plays like Ape Escape has me intrigued, definitely on our radar.
@suikoden it's not for you then. But seriously ... after all these look-same, tired "pixel art" indies that keep coming out, this is visually snappy.
It's not bad when listening to it as part of the trailer, but it's the sort of song that I'd get sick of very quickly.
So cool to have KKB doing the theme song, I’m a million times more likely to buy the game now. They’re brilliant to see live and Sarah Bonito’s a right laugh.
@suikoden I have seen hundreds of games that look far worse then this. Some probably had a far bigger budget then this as well. I think many went into last week expecting every game shown to be a graphical showcase so when Bugsnax is shown people immediately think it looks "bad"
I honestly think it looks cool
@nessisonett KKB are a very cool group. Also funny when they covered Death Grips live.
It looks rough but who knows maybe its great fun im kinda interested how it plays.
