Timbaland Remixes ‘The Daily Show’ Theme Song
The Trevor Noah era of The Daily Show officially began last September, but now the show has a new theme to go with its new host. Timbaland teamed up with King Logan to produce a remixed version of The Daily Show theme "Dog on Fire" which debuted on last night's (Jan. 4) episode.
"Dog on Fire" has been the theme song for The Daily Show since its premiere in 1996. Bob Mould crafted he original version of the theme, which was used during Craig Kilborn's tenure as the host. When Jon Stewart took over in 1999 for his memorable run as host, They Might Be Giants record a new version of theme. The Daily Show continued to use his version once Trevor Noah took over for Jon Stewart, but decided to debut this new version for the first show of 2016.
There's certainly more of a hip-hop vibe to the new theme with Timbaland behind the boards. It's a much different sound from the guitar-heavy version that was previously used. It's a small, but noticeable way for Trevor Noah to distinguish himself from the acclaimed run of former host Jon Stewart.
For Timbaland, this is yet another sign he's been keeping very busy of late as he recently dropped a new mixtape called King Stays King. The 18-track project featured a host of big name guests including Young Thug, Migos, Yo Gotti, Tink, Rich Homie Quan and 2 Chainz.
