The fictional world of HBO series Westworld is like no other: Set in an amusement park filled with robotic cowboys, the show has qualities of both the future and the past. The mood of the show may have been more difficult to capture were it not for Ramin Djawadi, the composer who helped come up with the perfect combination of the old and the new for the show's soundtrack.

"It's a great way of reminding the audience that: 'Wait, this is a theme park, you're not really back in time,'" he told the Guardian. "It just reminds you that something is not right here. It's all fake."

Djawadi's original work is featured as Westworld's theme and joins other recognizable hits from artists like Johnny Cash, The Cure and Radiohead on the soundtrack. Take a look:
