The Cramps' song "Goo Goo Muck" for the show's viral dance scene, according to two of the creators of Netflix's most recent success Wednesday.

Music directors Jen Malone and Nicole Weisberg described how "Goo Goo Muck" was selected after a drawn-out process of elimination from a huge list of potential options in an interview with Variety.

The Cramps were consistently on our extensive Spotify playlist, according to Malone. "We also recommended the Cramps' "Human Fly" to the group before moving on to "Goo Goo Muck." Wednesday is the ideal day for The Cramps."

Malone added that the Cramps song was ultimately chosen by the group because Jenna Ortega's choreographed dance and Wednesday's moody persona complemented the band perfectly.

The single "had to be lively, quirky, and lend itself to Wednesday's personality," she continued, noting that the production team had taken other Gothic musicians like Siouxsie and Joy Division into consideration.

Everyone was "super-psyched" to see the scene come to life when the team decided on "Goo Goo Muck" and obtained permission to use it, according to Malone.

Since Wednesday debuted on Nov. 23, the popularity of the 1981 hit on streaming services has increased by more than 9,000%.

Wednesday has rapidly risen to the top of Netflix's most watched shows list since its release. The Tim Burton-produced show surpassed the previous record set in mid-2022 by Stranger Things Season 4 with 341 million hours of viewing in its first week of availability.

The sum increased to 752.5 million in just two weeks, making Wednesday the third-largest English-language programme on Netflix overall and the fifth-largest programme overall.

The programme is competing with Squid Game from 2021, which became Netflix's most popular original programme ever after receiving 1.65 billion hours of viewership in its first month.
