What’s the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners theme song?
The song featured in the intro – opening credits and on the ending credits, identified as the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners theme song, is This Fire by Franz Ferdinand. You can find the official video below.
This Fire is one of the most famous songs ever made by the Scottish band Franz Ferdinand. A single extracted from their debut, self-titled album, it was used to close their concerts for years, and still today, it’s one of the most recognizable tracks ever released by them.
Below you can find the lyrics you can hear in the Cyberpunk Edgerunners credits:
Eyes burning a way through me
Eyes, destroying so sweetly
Now there is a fire in me
A fire that burns
This fire is out of control
We’re going to burn it, I’ll burn it, I, I, I’ll burn it down
I’ll burn it, I’ll burn it, I’ll burn it, I’ll burn it
The song lyrics are simple and evocative simultaneously: This Fire is about the explosive effect of a girl’s eyes on Franz Ferdinand’s leader, Alex Kapranos. Her gaze triggers so much lust and passion in him that it feels like a fire burning inside himself. And now that the fire is burning, he could burn the whole city.
This Fire is a modern rock song full of energy for an anime series inspired by an action video game: nothing less than a perfect choice.
