^wow, I have never even heard of that show. I couldn't take the theme song for more than 10 seconds.
I managed to last 30 seconds, but once it started repeating after that mark, I was like "nope!" and shut it off.

I have no idea why anyone would want that to run 1:30.

Don't listen, once it's there it's there forever! It's like herpes, once you've got it it's there for life and can just reappear at any time.

It's not a theme but this could be the antidote.

Firefly. I love the show but that song really annoys me.
That's how I feel about Bones. The show's good, but the theme isn't. I mute it whenever it comes on now.

Penn Jillette swears this works to get any song out of your head:



Not that I'm recommending it as one of the "worst TV themes," because it's not.

I'm surprised so many people don't like firefly's theme. I thought it was perfect for the show.

the A team, Knight Rider awful!
I LOVED the A-Team theme; I thought it was perfect; it set the mood for the show really well. The theme songs I really hated were all the sappy little tunes, like G-man said, that could easily belong to any other show: Family Ties, Perfect Strangers, Full House, etc. Blah.

I was just joking, I love those theme songs

I disagree, the original theme music to L&O as on the DVD's and FX is the better theme
The *original* original L&O theme, the one they used for the first three or four seasons...I didn't care for that one:



Then about when Sam Waterston came aboard, they changed it to a version with deeper bass, I greatly preferred that version:



That being said: I didn't much like the original Criminal Intent theme (the one with the fuzz guitar and all that crap):



After Trial By Jury got cancelled, CI got its theme.



Worst L&O theme of all, though? The second version of the Law & Order: LA theme. Whoever performed it sounded asleep!

Re: Worst tv show theme songs

I dislike most of the 80's theme songs with lyrics: Golden Girls is among the worst, along with Charles in Charge, Different Strokes, The Facts of Life, Family Ties, etc.

Re: Worst tv show theme songs

I always thought Queen's hard-rocking "Princes of the Universe," the theme from Highlander, seemed glaringly inappropriate for a fantasy-action-adventure show.

YMMV.

I love the Homeland theme. Having earlier dissed the ENT theme song, I think the early seasons DS9 theme is the more egregious.

Wasn't the song (like some others featured in the series) from the original film?

Yep. I never saw the original film. Maybe the song worked better on the big screen.

The entire concept worked better in the original movie.
