It’s the early 2000s. You stay up late to watch anime on your TV hoping your parents don’t hear. Next thing you know, you hear the iconic intro to Cowboy Bebop play, and all is well in the world.
The Japanese band Seatbelts — which performed Cowboy Bebop’s opening theme, “Tank!” — grouped up recently to assemble an at-home performance for fans. The performance is every bit as fast-paced and energetic as the song itself, with the video edited to quickly cut between various band members, almost replicating the vibe and tone of the anime’s intro.
