If you're riding that TV hype wave, chances are you're obsessed with Westworld much like the rest of the internet. And with a new season not set to arrive on screens until 2018, it's probable that you're already missing your weekly fix of cowboy-futurism.

Well fret no more, my friends: you can now relive the show IRL, because its weird ass soundtrack, is now online for you to stream. Yes, you heard right: the country piano cover of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" that has been criminally missing from your life, along with the sort of creepy Western amusement park versions of Radiohead and the Rolling Stones you have always so desperately craved, are now available to you via your chosen streaming service! Yee, and indeed, haw.

Composer Ramin Djawadi recently told Vulture about the motivation behind his decision to rework modern songs for the soundtrack: "It's a Western theme park, and yet it has robots in it, so why not have modern songs? And that's a metaphor in itself, wrapped up in the overall theme of the show." So if you needed any validation for the fact that your every move will now be backed by that honky tonk-lite Nine Inch Nails cover that you inexplicably love, Ramin has your back. It's a metaphor bro. About robots
