Space Pirate is a song written and preformed by Jake Elmer, made for the series.The song is said to be a parody of "The Passenger" by Rock singer, Iggy Pop.
the origin of the song started when Jake was listening to Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life" album while re-reading the episode "Night Train to Glasmuir" and felt the song "the Passenger" was a fitting song. He later began practicing the song on his acoustic guitar, but was still thinking about the series then the lyrics came to him. Elmer states
"I always listen to old Rock albums while I read, and Iggy Pop is the grandfather of Punk Rock. I also felt the series needed a theme song, like Spider-Man did when he got his own cartoon. My good friend, Samuel Solema is the king of spoofing, so I thought I get in on that."
Music and Lyrics Edit
The music to the song itself sounds quite similar to the original Iggy Pop tune. With a clean repeating power chord riff on acoustic guitar with lyrical content about Jaws MacTaggart and her adventures.
