The Ten Worst Television Theme Songs of All Time

A Seriously Random List LXIII / Dustin Rowles

Seriously Random Lists | March 6, 2009 | Comments ()

One of our very first Guides here was the TV Whore’s list of the greatest television theme songs of all time, a beautiful piece (although he did miss one of my favorites: “The Fall Guy” theme song). Today, we offer up the ten worst television theme songs of all time — positively foul, ear-punishing, synth-heavy, musical cyanide. For our younger readers, it’s 80s heavy (because the 80s were the worst decade of all time for television theme songs), so many of you who came to age in the late 90s were blessedly saved from many of these 30-second shots of ear Drano. Now you can share in a misery you may have missed otherwise (and note, some of the newer shows rank higher, simply because they should’ve known better, not being a product of the 80s and all).
