"Activate" is a track composed by Jon Graham. In-story, it was created by Master Chief for his show during "Low on Hearts". The entire song consists of a male voice saying "Activate! Activ-Activate!" in an infinite loop. The track has become something of a running joke. It has been included in the SoundCloud playlist for the season 6 soundtrack and in the season 8 soundtrack as track number 69.
The track is never actually heard in either of the Hypernews episodes; it appeared only in story episodes. Apart from its first appearance in "Low on Hearts", it was used by Chief to distract Greg in "Cheaters". By fan request, it also appeared in the finale of Hypermail, "Just Say No to Robot Porn".
A remix of the song, by Chase Benham, is featured in the season 8 episode "Nervewreck".
