Thought the finale of Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey couldn’t get any better? Think again…

Genius YouTube user Senoirchang has cut the final sequence of the film with psych rockers Tame Impala, and created something really, really trippy.

Dr Dave Bowman disconnects HAL and hurtles through space in the famous clip, and the sequence never sounded so cool.

Check out the amazing 2001 / Tame Impala mash-up below:

The band’s song Eventually syncs up incredibly well with the 1968 movie, and arguably fits better than Johann Strauss II’s Blue Danube from the original soundtrack.

While it was pretty perfect to begin with, the track adds a psychedelic element to the footage, one that sci-fi fans are sure to love.

Aussie group Tame Impala have been single-handely making psychedelia cool over the past few years, and their trippy rock fits the screen classic really well – who knew?

Tame Impala released their third studio album Currents back in 2015. Watch the music video for their track Elephant below:
