Isn’t it about time that the theme from Seinfeld be given the death metal treatment? The Internet thought so.

The boops and pops and plunks of the theme from Seinfeld (made with a Yamaha DX-7 synth, not a bass guitar) have made it one of the most famous TV themes ever.

One thing was missing, though: a death metal version. Behold Grindfeld and their imminent EP, Five Songs About Nothing, which features five songs based on some of the show’s most famous episodes. And yes, “The Contest” is here (it leads off the EP). And there would be rioting in the streets if at least one song wasn’t inspired by the Soup Nazi. (Via Tom through Revolver)
