First Look at Nickelodeon’s TMNT Intro Theme

It’s that time of year again, with geeks everywhere filing out to Comic-Con once more. What’s more, with Nickelodeon’s new TMNT series on the horizon, you had to expect that they’d have a few things to reveal at one of the biggest and most beloved conventions in the world. Well, they already let the cat out of the bag a little early with the first official trailer for the show, but there was still a lot left unanswered after that. Thankfully, some of those questions have been answered with their latest release of the official theme song for the show (TMNT Intro theme below) . Until now, we’ve only heard short clips of this song, and it hasn’t really impressed. However, the full theme is actually quite interesting, although fans still seem to be quite divided about it.

Nickelodeon TMNT new intro

Yes, it’s a hip-hop theme about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – but what’s the problem with that? We’ve heard hip-hop associated with the turtles before, and in fact some of the most beloved TMNT music is hip-hop inspired. I don’t know about you, but Partner in Kryme’s “Turtle Power” is still one of my favorite songs, and I honestly don’t have much of a problem with this new theme. Heck, the theme is even finished off with the classic line “Heroes in a half shell, Turtle Power.” The lyrics specifically mention the “secret of the ooze,” for crying out loud. This is about as faithful a theme song as you can expect from a reboot to the franchise. If you haven’t heard the song or seen the intro for the show, check it out below. The new series premieres on September 29th, so get ready for some brand new turtle action, because it’s just around the corner!
