Who knew ‘Hot in Herre’ could really amp up this ‘Last Jedi’ scene?

A fight scene is only as energizing, satisfying, and badass as its music, and no recent meme has proved that more than one changing up the Praetorian Guard fight scene with Rey and Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

On Tuesday, some meme god took Rey and Kylo Ren’s fancy lightsaber work and set them to the tune of Britney Spears, Electric Light Orchestra, Toto, and more—and the results are just *chef’s kiss.*

Going across pop, rock, and even hip-hop genres, this potential meme knows just how to get the most out of Rey and Kylo Ren’s combined forces. Some of the “remixes” are more nostalgia-inducing, invoking a sense of passionate vengeance and subtle satisfaction.

Or that of bitter, angsty furor—like an emo Kylo Ren, perhaps:

Others are just, kind of… nonsensical? Wacky? Comical, most definitely.
