Best Television Series Theme Songs

The Top Ten

1 The X-Files The X-Files

Creepy theme song... I love it! Try listening to it over and over again in a pitch black room. - fireinside96

This is such a good show and the theme song fits perfectly with the mood and style!

Yeah this should be nominated for a grammy. Just kidding by the way. But I guess it's the scariest part of the show witch is upsetting.

This theme fits the series so well. It's simple, yet it still has that creepy vibe that The X-Files is known for. The best, and one of the most iconic theme songs of all time.

2 Fresh Prince

In west Philadelphia, born and raised on a playground is where I spent most of my days. - Alex12345269

Hell no this is definitely number 1 (look at my kingdom I was finally there sittin my throne as fresh prince of bell air) LEGENDARY - lilnate1200

How is this not number 1? I have never met a person who couldn't sing this all the way through! And years later its still so popular! I think will smith's appearance on the graham norton show proved that!

EVERYBODY! " in west Philadelphia born and raised... "

In west Philadelphia, born and raised on the playground is where I spent most of my days, chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool and all shooting some b-ball outside of the school.
Then a couple of guys they were up to no good, startin' making trouble in my neighborhood, I got in 1 little fight and my mom got scared she said "You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air

3 Friends - I'll Be There For You

Not sure why the X files is there because that song doesn't even have any lyrics. Anyway, I voted for this although The Big Bang Theory is a very close second. - MusicManiac1232

Without any doubt I'll be there for you stands number 1 for me... Best song and shows the concept of the show, which is about friendship! Love the show and the song!

I love it very much it makes me happy when I listen to this song of course friends is the greatest serial ever... I like joey very much because of his innocence

I didn't like it when they shortened the opening - XtremeNerdz12

4 The Simpsons The Simpsons The Simpsons is a cartoon that started in 1989, and is still running as of 2016. It is about a man named Homer and his family going through a long series of misadventures.

This has to be first. The moment the theme opens up, it dosn't matter if you never watched this show, you just know its " The Simpsons". It's that good! - metalmaiden

What I really like about The Simpsons is how they are always changing it up with different couch gags. Sure some are reused, but still its very unique.

How is this not number 1! The the the the the the the the the the the the who doesn't love that theme song it's the best one on T.V. VOTE Fo simpsons

This theme song is bland, I'll stick with South Park and Fresh Prince. - KennyRulz244444

5 Cheers

Love at first sight. That describes the song. Just being home. Around people who love you. Where everybody knows your name and they are always glad you came.

This has to be No. 1. Never really watched cheers but I still know the theme song. This is without a doubt the best theme song there is.

I never really watched the show much... but I love the song - jwileson

Love this song

8 Malcolm in the Middle - Boss of Me

I love They Might Be Giants! This is the perfect theme song for such a crazy and hilarious show. I loved this when I was younger and now I watch this show all the time on teen nick.

Haha I love this show! Best theme song! The best part of the song is the end when they say life is unfair laugh out loud. That's the perfect song for those girl crazy, selfish, unruly boys! Laugh out loud

9 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

It's amazing how the Original Pokemon theme song managed to withstand the test of time despite all of the newer theme songs that Pokemon created. Although I knew a bit about it I only recently became a Pokemon and yet I somehow knew the lyrics off-by-heart and I even know almost all of the Pokemon theme songs! Maybe it's just the companies composers, but either way the original theme is one of the best theme songs out, Even in other countries where the lyrics, language and tune are different it's still perfect!

Best theme song ever whether it's the English or Japanese! GOTTA CATCH EM ALL! Pokemon! Every kid should know this theme!

No matter how old you are, if someone starts singing this, you have to sing with them. It's an unspoken rule. If you do not know the words, you are lying to yourself. You do. Sing it loud, and sing it proud. I WANNA BE, THE VERY BEST. LIKE NO ONE EVER WAS.

HECK YEAH! Face it, wether you are a hardcore Pokefan or you just watched one episode, THIS SONG FOLLOWS YOU EVERYWHERE.

10 That 70's Show

Every Body knows this song! Not just because its simple, because it's a great show! Every Teenager Will love this show for years to come.

For sure one of the best known theme songs of the 21st century

This song should be #1 it's always in my head can't believe it ain't in the top 10 this at least deserves top 10. The show is also very great love the idea of it and wish it was still active today

This is one of those theme songs where: You turn your T.V. off at the end of a show usually. When this is the show on next, you wait two more minutes just so that you can hear the theme song.

The Newcomers

? Scooby Doo, Where are You?
? Breaking Bad Breaking Bad

The opening theme to this show is so iconic that I had heard it before I even started watching the show! How is it not at least in the top ten!?!

I agree it is good. But it is no where near as iconic as The Walking Dead and Prison Break's theme tunes - philbeech13

The Contenders

11 SpongeBob SquarePants

Are you ready kids? Aye Aye captain! I can't hear you! Aye Aye Captain! OO... Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? SpongeBob SquarePants! Absorbent, yellow, and porous is he? SpongeBob SquarePants! If nautical nonsense be something you wish! SpongeBob SquarePants! Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish! SpongeBob SquarePants! Ready? SpongeBob SquarePants, SpongeBob SquarePants, SpongeBob SquarePants! SpongeBob... SquarePants! Haha. It should be number 1!

its so funny "who lives in a pineapple under the sea spongebob squarepants " classic - hermione_granger

The most famous theme song ever I think I'll make a list about it

I LOVE this show. I watch it every night on Cartoon Network and I have the theme song memorized I even know how to play it on my instrument for Jazz Band. - DarkAngelxox

Yes. Absolutely can't avoid singing it whenever it's on. Really good. - Britgirl

this song has the best tv show!
it needs to be number one - vargas51

13 Happy Days

How is Happy Days not number 1?! Happy Days beats The Fresh Prince of Bel Air by a long shot.

14 Gilligan's Island

The poetic lyrics and catchy tune make you feel like you want to be stranded on a desert isle with Gilligan, the Skipper, too, the Millionaire and his wife, the movie star, the Professor and Mary Ann...

It's so good I mean what's better. It needs to be in the 20's on this list. I said, "Just sit right back and you'll read this now it's not bad it's good... I am using key boored it's not hard to tell. (read it like the song)

This seriously needs to be higher up. One of the catchiest (and most popular) T.V. series themes ever, and it didn't even make the top 25?
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale... - jessicaclaytor

How is this not in the top 10? Seriously. I listen to this theme song non stop, its stuck in my brain and every time game of thrones comes on I hum along unlike most people that just skip it. Anyways, the theme song perfecty fits into the medieval theme of the show, and the show itself is AMAZING. Please vote this amazing piece of music up!

By far one of the best theme songs of all time. I absolutely love it! Should at least be in the top tens. Go listen to it - dragonfly99

This is the best. Even my father, who doesn't like (fantasy) shows, gets goosebumps when he hears it.
