Cowboy Bebop is the first album created for the anime series of the same name, and the most easily categorized in terms of genre, as an outlet for many of the trademark bebop tracks. It begins with the show's theme song, "Tank!" Also worth noting is Bad Dog No Biscuits, which opens with a cover of the Tom Waits composition Midtown, before diverting wildly in its interpretation.
The unparalleled musicianship and virtuosity may be why it is one of the few soundtracks to a television show to achieve a perfect five star rating from Allmusic.
The TV series first aired in Japan in 1998, and would eventually premiere in the United States in 2001 as the first anime to be shown on Adult Swim, a late-night block geared towards adults on the cable channel, Cartoon Network.
