The Terrible Thunderlizards Theme Song

May 17, 2011

 

Way too cool theme tune!! And you know why? Because The Terrible Thunderlizards Theme Song is composed by one of the top metal vocalists of all time—Dee Snider from the band Twisted Sister. That’s right, some don’t even consider this a show really, as it was just a segment of Eek! The Cat—can brag about such a thing? this series chronicled the misadventures of a trio of dinosaur mercenaries released from incarceration (for being falsely accused of helping an enemy Thuggosaur in a time of war) and charged with the task of eliminating two primitive human beings after scientists realize that if humanity is allowed to multiply it will mean the end of dinosaur supremacy. However, despite their superior size and firepower and the obliviousness of their targets, the mercenaries always fail to kill the humans with comic results. Here is the opening sequence:

The Terrible Thunderlizards Theme Song Lyrics

Free to catch the two humans
They’re gonna make your day
Here comes Doc Squat and Cutter
You best get out of their way

The Terrible Thunderlizards
The Terrible Thunderlizards

 

However, as cool a theme as this is, I don’t think Mr. Snider put much thought into it. The guitar riff sounds awfully like Alice in Chain’s “Man in the Box”.

Alice in Chains – Man in the Box

Grunge f-in’ rules!

Now the lyrics!!

Alice in Chains – Man in the Box Lyrics

I’m the man in the box
Buried in my shit
Won’t you come and save me?
Save me
Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?
Jesus Christ, deny your maker
He who tries, will be wasted
Feed my eyes now you’ve sewn them shut
I’m the dog who gets beat
Shove my nose in shit
Won’t you come and save me
Save me
Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?
Jesus Christ, deny your maker
He who tries, will be wasted
Feed my eyes now you’ve sewn them shut
Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?
Jesus Christ, deny your maker
He who tries, will be wasted
Feed my eyes now you’ve sewn them shut
