Fun fact

The theme tune is David Whittaker's rendition of 'Megablast (Hip Hop on Precinct 13)(7'' Mix)' by BOMB THE BASS, taken from the album "Into the Dragon" © 1988 Rhythm King/BCM Records. BOMB THE BASS' album version of "Megablast", in turn, is a remix of the soundtrack from the 1976 motion picture "Assault on Precinct 13", composed and directed by John Carpenter.
