THE DANDY WARHOLS REVAMP THEME SONG FOR EMMY(R)-NOMINATED DISCOVERY CHANNEL SERIES MYTHBUSTERS

New song to premiere with new fall episodes starting Wednesday, September 28

Hit Discovery Channel series MYTHBUSTERS and legendary musical act The Dandy Warhols have partnered on an all-new theme song, which will launch with the series' new fall season on Wednesday, September 28 at 9PM ET/PT. Hosted by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, and Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara, the Emmy(R) nominated series uses scientific experimentation to prove or disprove popular myths, misconceptions or legends. This marks the first update of the MYTHBUSTERS title theme since the series launched on Discovery Channel in 2003.

The Dandy Warhols took a break from recording their seventh full length album (due out in early 2012) to revamp the MYTHBUSTERS opening music. [Listen to the new Dandy Warhols open here: http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/mythbusters-dandy-new-theme-song.html]

Said the band's Zia McCabe, "MYTHBUSTERS is one of my favorite shows and it's always a pleasure to see the cast in our audience at the San Francisco shows. It just seemed like a great fit that we would rework their theme song." Continued Courtney Taylor-Taylor, "Well, it's hard not to wake up with a little bit of a puffed up or self-satisfied air. Or maybe feel just a little bit superior, a little bit stuck up about it. But one day it's gonna be someone else doing the new MYTHBUSTERS theme and ya know, that's okay too."

Said MYTHBUSTERS' Tory Belleci, "We're good friends with -- and big fans of -- The Dandy Warhols and they're also fans of our show, so we asked them to cover our theme music. They made it way cooler."
