The odd, discordant guitar part played throughout the movie, which is used almost note for note nearly 20 years later by an up and coming band, is a testament to the enduring quality of the composer's music. The band, Wall of Voodoo, best known for its early 1980s hit "Mexican Radio", uses that strange note progression in its updated remake of the Johnny Cash hit, "Ring of Fire." Their version, however, is a nearly ten-minute-long experiment in what would later be termed as techno music. Its mechanical programmed background rhythm and synth-heavy adaption paved the way for later bands. But its use of the riff from this film performed nearly musically verbatim, that makes their version so intriguing.
