3 Teen Titans Teen Titans is an American animated television series created by Glen Murakami, based on the DC Comics characters of the same name.

When there's trouble you know who to call
From the tower they can see it all
When there's evil on the attack
You can rest knowing they got your back
Cause when the world needs hero's on patrol
With there super powers they unite
Never met a villain that they liked
They got the bad guys on the run
They never stop till the job gets done
Cause when the world is losing all control
1, 2, 3, 4,


When there's trouble you know who to call! Teen Titans! From their tower they can see it all! Teen Titans! When there's evil on the attack, you can rest knowing they got your back, because when the world needs heros on patrol! Teen Titans... GO!

I love the teen titans theme song. It has a lot of action it has catchy lyrics and is just the perfect theme song for a show like teen titans. Why not vote for it?

One of the best teams with one of the best superheroes, something is sure they have the best theme song ever. They are my favorites in every way.

My all time favourite show as a kid seriously that so is stuck in my head also well done to the person who wrote the lyrics to Danny Phantom because they put young which is right instead of yo which is the wrong!

Dude. This at least needs to be in the top ten. This song is catchy as hell...GOTTA CATCH EM ALL CAUSE HE'S DANNY PHANTOM!

(He's a Phantom)
(Danny Phantom Danny Phantom)
Young Danny Fenton he was just fourteen
When his parents built a very strange machine
It was designed to view a world unseen
(He's gonna catch'em all 'cause he's Danny Phantom)
When it didn't quite work, his folks, they just quit
Then Danny took a look inside of it
There was a great big flash, everything just changed!
His molecules got all rearranged!
(Phantom, Phantom)
When he first woke up, he realized
He had snow-white hair, and glowing green eyes
He could walk through walls, disappear, and fly!
He was much more unique than the other guys!
It was then when he knew what he had to do
He had to stop other ghosts that were coming through
He's here to fight for me and you!
(He's gonna catch'em all 'cause he's Danny Phantom x3)

Oh my Tallest, I love this song. It's the perfect mix of catchy, original, & stereotypical sci-fi sounds. And the entire video sequence is just as epic, showing off the show's amazing visuals, paranormal action, & side-splitting humor. The epicness of this song flows through my veins! Like giant, radioactive, rubber pants!


Four words. Best Theme Song Ever, also known as BTSE. Pokémon can't rival this. Ben 10 can't match this. Even Sonic SATam can't come close to to this theme song.

Honestly the ending theme was better, and I wouldn't like the opening if it weren't for this one part:
