‘WandaVision’ Got Kathleen Hanna To Sing Their ‘Malcolm In The Middle’-Inspired Theme Song

This past weekend’s episode of WandaVision brought things up to the late ’90s and early 2000s, so it needed a title sequence to match. They show’s creators hit the nail on the head by going with a Malcolm In The Middle-inspired bit. Instead of going in a They Might Be Giants direction like that show’s original theme, though, WandaVision leaned more riot grrrl and got a defining artist of the genre to sing on the track: Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre fame.

Kristen Anderson-Lopez — who co-writes the music for the show alongside her husband Robert Lopez (the pair that co-wrote the songs for Frozen) — confirmed Hanna’s involvement on Twitter over the weekend, writing, “Shout out to the amazing @kathleenhanna of bikini kill and le Tigre fame. She’s the star of this week’s riot girl inspired WandaVision theme song!” Anderson-Lopez and Hanna actually sang the song together, as Anderson-Lopez noted on Twitter.

For those unfamiliar with the stylistic premise of WandaVision, the show draws inspiration from a different period of time for each episode, leaning on television tropes from the respective era to help get that aesthetic across.
