Listen to Franz Ferdinand’s ‘This Fire’ from Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, Ep. 1, “Let You Down”

Now, while the new Netflix anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is over-the-top hot garbage (sorry, but it is), the show does feature decent music on its soundtrack.

And music that is appropriate for the high-energy action going on in the anime series.


Scottish rock band Franz Ferdinand’s ‘This Fire‘ was one of the epic tracks showing up on the new Netflix anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners this week. In its case, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, Season 1, Episode 1, “Let You Down“.

The track was the song playing over the end credits on the episode.

Franz Ferdinand’s ‘This Fire‘ is from the band’s self-titled debut studio album.

The song was recorded in 2003, and released in early 2004  as a single called ‘This Fffire‘ on the Domino record label.

The track went on to chart in Australia, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the U.S., with its best results at #8 on the UK Singles Download chart.


Listen to Franz Ferdinand’s ‘This Fire‘ as heard on Cyberpunk: Edgerunners on the Scottish indie band’s debut album, and in the song’s music video.

The video is an interesting and beautifully done mix of live video and animation featuring the band performing the track backed by animated Soviet style propaganda.

You can watch Cyberpunk: Edgerunners on Netflix.
