Would someone PLEASE sample this audio of a marsquake into a song?

NASA’s InSight lander is equipped with all sorts of cool gadgetry for its study of the Martian surface. This includes the ability to sample audio that might be floating about in the thin atmosphere.

Yesterday (October 1), NASA released the sounds of a marsquake, the Martian equivalent of an earthquake. The frequencies are far, far, below what humans can hear, so they sped it up. The result is some pretty phat bass.
