American Dad (Stelio Kontos remix)
Weekend Remix: They Call Him Stelio
Song: American Dad Stelio Kontos Remix
Based On: Stelio From American Dad
Original Composer: Walter Murphy
It’s an American trip to Langley Falls for this edition of The Weekend Remix. In the American Dad episode, “Bully For Steve,” Stan finally got his just deserts from bullying his own son, when the infamous Stelio Kontos came back to once again wreck havoc.
The menacing Greek bully appeared for a moment to cause hell for Stan, providing a brutal yet hilarious scene in the series. This wouldn’t have had the same impact without Stelio’s theme blasting from his boombox. I mean, who has their own theme music playing while causing chaos on the playground?
It’s simple: The guitars and horns play while a chorus repeats Stelio’s name, occasionally shifting a few notes up to heighten the tension. But there’s something hypnotic about it, which probably makes it tailor made to serve as a sample in a hip-hop beat.
Besides a bit of rework on the guitars and strings, and the addition of some powerful hip-hop drums/percussion, there isn’t too much that’s changed. And this proves two things: Stelio’s theme was made for this remix and Blubeatz has an incredible ear to make it all work.
