Free MP3! The "Angry Robot" Song



The Angry Robot song began its life as the theme song to the Angry Robot Podcast (hosted by Mur Lafferty). Mur commissioned the jingle and I always had the intention of making it into a full length song. The problem was that I couldn't come up with any lyrics for the verses. Enter Science Fiction Novelist and RPG author Matt Forbeck.

Matt and I met at the World Fantasy Convention in Columbus Ohio last year. We've gotten to be pretty good virtual friends through Twitter and Facebook since then. I asked him if he'd like to take a shot at writing some lyrics for the tune (after all, he is published by Angry Robot Books). He did and we collaborated on the verse lyrics that you see below.

You can get this song for absolutely free. Just click the Download button on the player above or, if you are viewing this post in a feed reader, click here.

Oh, and while you're at it, click the Share button on the player above to automatically share the music with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and your blog.

I hope you enjoy it,

Angry Robot
by John Anealio & Matt Forbeck

Angry Robot; plotting the overthrow of all mankind
Angry Robot; thoughts of Armageddon on his mind
Don't look him in the eye, he's an Angry Robot

The Angry Robot wasn't always mad
He started out so happy but things went bad
Cause when he hooked up to the internet
what he saw there filled him with pained regret

He wanted to go on a killing spree
to rip the souls from meatbags and set them free
His Asimovian circuit wouldn't let
him kill just anyone he met.

Angry Robot; plotting the overthrow of all mankind
Angry Robot; thoughts of Armageddon on his mind
Don't look him in the eye, he's an Angry Robot

But angry as he was the robot knew
there was no violent thing that he could do
He learned about the Singularity
when chips & blood become one entity

The human system software is a mess
but the robot knew that with success
a robot/human hybrid he would be
and he could kill with equanimity

Angry Robot; plotting the overthrow of all mankind
Angry Robot; thoughts of Armageddon on his mind
Don't look him in the eye, he's an Angry Robot
