Worst tv show theme songs

What are those theme songs that make you cringe and/or make your ears bleed ?

A few that make me do that are the remix of ER's theme and the remix of Bones's (both of these ar more like theme blurbs than theme songs), along with the theme song from the latter part of Quantum Leap (on dvd).

I am not a huge fan of the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes theme song. I was quite glad they scaled it back for this past season.

Not a theme song per se, but Grimm debuted with a voice over narrative for the second season. It was terrible and only lasted about 3 episodes.

LIFE UNEXPECTED had a grating theme song that, thankfully, was too short to fast-forward through.

If you were already depressed, Taxi's theme song would make you feel suicidal. But that's not really what the OP meant, I think.

Lost and Threshold had those horrible sound effects instead of theme songs.

Most children's shows have terrible theme songs. H.R. Pufnstuf had Jack Wild but, still.

And in the SF genre, merciful amnesia has blanked out most of the Greg Mullavey/Imogene Coca sitcom theme, the one with astronauts and cavemen.

Isn't posting something like that the same as trolling or flaming or something Bad?

Eh, I always kinda liked that theme. It was fun show, for a little bit.

I hadn't when I posted it, but he directed more than a few TV eps I remember liking back then, including a fucking great Wild Wild West episode.

Re: Worst tv show theme songs

Supertrain, NBC's super-colossal flop, ran only nine episodes but had three different versions of the opening titles and theme music. The third and final version was the worst.



Please make those godawful blaring horns stop. I feel like I'm trapped between a disco and a marching band.

I don't mean to be too obvious here, but Enterprise's theme during seasons 3 and 4 is terrible, whereas before it had been sort of okay.
