Musician Andrew Huang doesn't know how to operate a meth lab, but he does know how to search Google to find out the equipment needed to run one. He also knows how to make beautiful music from odd objects. Put the two together and it's a match made in a chemistry lab. His experiment? Play the "Breaking Bad" theme song with meth-making supplies.

Granted, there is a guitar for added effect, but everything else you hear comes from propane cylinders, rubber tubing, lab beakers, frying pans, buckets, plastic bottles, and measuring cups. The "Breaking Bad" theme is the latest in a series of song challenges Huang has tackled, including a song crafted from water sounds.

Getting the right sounds required some creative instrumentation. Huang used a beaker as a guitar slide and slapped paper towels and coffee filters together for percussion. The cover song comes just in time for the airing of the final episodes of "Breaking Bad."

"Breaking Bad" has seen its share of unusual tributes, ranging from Walter White tattoos to blue "crystal meth" candy-covered donuts. Huang's musical creation fits right in, giving us all something to groove to while the series counts down to its finale.
