Josh Homme Pens New “Aqua Unit Patrol Squad One” Theme
Aqua Teen Hunger Force is arguably the perennial program of Cartoon Network’s late-night history. Airing since late 2000, the fan favorite is now the longest tenured original series of the Adult Swim catalog, with 100 episodes across seven seasons.

Rapper Schooly D took the mic and composed an unforgettable original theme song for Aqua Teen Hunger Force, however this go-around will feature a different pair of more rock-oriented figures.
Josh Homme, lead singer/guitarist of Queens of the Stone Age, teamed up with backing guitarist Alain Johannes to compose the new theme song, which has a spiffy ‘Frank Zappa’ sound.
