Poll What is being said in the menu song? (143 votes)

Man. Machine. The Future? 21%
Man. Machine. The Fusion? 73%
I am just as crazy as you and I have no idea! 6%

At first I thought it was saying future. But now that someone said they thing its fusion. I hear both. Is this guy just terrible at enunciation? Or is he clearly saying one of them and I just suck at listening? What is happening. Also why do I care, right. Take a listen for yourself.

I honestly hear it both ways. Each time I listen to it, it changes. I think my brain is just playing tricks on me. It has to be right. I am going crazy? I am. Puppy!

I'm pretty sure it's fusion, but listening to it again, he doesn't really pronounce the "n". It's definitely either "fusion" or "fuchsia".

He does say, "Welcome to the future," but the line in question is Fusion .

I think it's: "Welcome to the future; Man, Machine, The Fusion."

This makes sense since in the future we will all be cyborg motorcycle riders doing impossible stunts

I hear fusion. And the end of the next line sounds like revolution to me, which would make rhyming sense.

I'm 99% sure there's a "ch" sound in there, so I'm going with "future". (or "fyoo-cha", as it were)

Edit: Wait, no, it's "Welcome to the future/man, machine, the fusion/welcome to the future/??? is ahead of evolution (I think)"

Edit 2: Okay, what the hell is that last line? I just can't make it out.

Edit 3: OH! OH! "Light years ahead of evolution"!

Light years ahead of evolution? I am pretty sure that is what that part is saying.

Does this mean in the next game there just wont even be a rider? You will be the bike. Or is this the origin story of Lococycle?

The next game will be a prequel and you'll be riding bone bikes with little dinosaurs running in your wheels like hamster wheels.

What about the second set of lyrics? They repeat the first part, but then add on some more:

Straight from the composer's blog:

Welcome to the future

Man, machine – the fusion

Welcome to the future

Lightyears ahead of evolution

Slay your darkest fears

Down the narrow tracks you steer

Welcome to the future

I'd only ever heard it as "Man. Machine. The Future." but listening to it again, it still sounds like he's saying future to me, because you can't really hear an "n" but when he sings "evolution" it too has the same problem - "evolutiaaaa" so that lead me to realise that it was indeed "Fusion" being sung.

That's a strong competitor for "Best Menu Theme of 2014" if I've ever seen one.

@sunbrozak: the only game i can think of that might step to this is Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Ultimate Suplex, because if it has lyrics that actually say Ultimax Ultimate Suplex then it wins

I still really like The Wolf Among Us's main theme, and I'd probably include it in the competition if the last part is out by the end of the year.
