BoJack Horseman is one of the more creative television ideas in recent memory.
Featuring an all-star comedy cast of Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie and Aaron Paul (not to mention guest spots from Stephen Colbert and Patton Oswalt), the animated Netflix series booted up a week ago with some musical help from The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney and Grouplove.
Carney’s instrumental opening theme features some milky keyboards and a batch of horns that set an ominous tone to begin the show.

Grouplove pitched in the closing theme, with lyrics tailored to the show. In case you didn’t get the gist from the Carney-infused opening credits, BoJack Horseman is a washed up TV celebrity who is part man, part horse.
Voiced by Arnett, Horseman struggles with the day-to-day life of a former star who can’t wrap his (horse) head around life in the 2010s. Oh, and there are a bunch of other characters who are part-animal, too.
Here are the closing theme lyrics:
Back in the ‘90s
I was in a very famous TV show
I’m BoJack the horse (BoJack)
BoJack the horse
Don’t act like you don’t know
And I’m trying to hold on to my past
It’s been so long
I don’t think I’m gonna last
I guess I’ll just try and make you understand
That I’m more horse than a man
Or I’m more man than a horse
Here's the audio from Grouplove:
