Iconic Vocalist Tapped For New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Theme Song

A new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game is coming out and a legendary frontman is featured on the new version of the popular theme song. Spin Magazine reports Mike Patton of Faith No More has lent his vocal stylings to the track, turtles in a half shell, indeed.

While Patton is best known for his work with Faith No More, his prolific career includes time as a producer, voice actor, and even record label owner. The list of bands he’s been a part of is extensive while his solo albums, Mr. Bungle and Peeping Tom deserve some extra attention.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredders Revenge is inspired by the 1987 arcade classic Turtles in Time and finds our heroes confronting Shredder and his minions attempting to stop his most diabolical plan yet. According to the game description, ‘…armed with shell-shocking new abilities built on a foundation of classic brawling mechanics, the gang are in for an exhilarating, Foot Clan-stomping romp leading them through the sewers and bustling boroughs of New York City all the way to Dimension X’.

No release date has been announced but the game will be available on both consoles and PC. And you won’t have to keep pumping quarters into the machine to make your way to the final confrontation with Shredder.
