The Top Ten

1 The X-Files The X-Files is an American science fiction drama television series created by Chris Carter. The original television series aired from September 10, 1993, to May 19, 2002, on Fox.

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

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 The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is an American sitcom that originally aired on NBC from September 10, 1990, to May 20, 1996.

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

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

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... "

Now heres the story all about how my life got flipped turn upside down and I'd like to take a minute just sit right here, I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called bell-air. Love that show!

Gives you the The mood of the show, and you know your in for some fun relaxation

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!

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

4 Friends Friends is an American television sitcom, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which originally aired on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004, lasting ten seasons. It now airs on Nick at Nite. ...read more.

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.

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

Must watch the series once a week. When I say once, I mean at least 1 season of this series. Just can't get enough of friends in my life. Friends always and forever.

5 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.

For all the 90's kids, this has to be #1. I recently listened to it and I started crying. The original theme song makes me so nostalgic.

6 Cheers Cheers is an American sitcom that ran for eleven seasons between 1982 and 1993. The show was produced by Charles/Burrows/Charles Productions in association with Paramount Network Television for NBC and created by the team of James Burrows, Glen Charles, and Les Charles.

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

I'v only wached it 3 or 4 times and I remember the song.

7 Hawaii Five-O

Hell yeah, Hawaii five o is the best show ever! It is the best show that has ever been made and will ever be made! Love love love love... The show the did the greatest hod making it! I don't care about what other people say about it, it's the best! I have never missed an episode! It has the hottest state, people, cars, I could go on and on! Don't give a damn what people think, y'all do a great job and no if ands or butts about it! Best song ever too!

This song is classic, if someone evens says the word Hawaii you think of this song.

This has to be # 1 its a classic for young and old generations the best part of mondays is when me and my mom hum along to the music and dance really badly

No one can ever get this out of their head. I don't use this word very often, but this song, is GOD DAMNED EPIC.

You're not the boss of me now, you're not the boss of me now and you're not so big!

The Contenders

11 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...

It was between this song and the Cheers theme. But I chose this one. It tells such a story and is so catchy. It's the song I think of when I think of T.V. themes.

12 Happy Days Happy Days is an American television sitcom that aired first-run from January 15, 1974 to September 24, 1984 on ABC, with a total of 255 half-hour episodes.

13 Game of Thrones Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.

COME ON 17?! This is a masterpiece which 100% matches the series. Like when you listen to the cello part and think about the power game, the sadness of meaninglessness of the houses, the lust for power... it is just brilliant. It should be in the top 5.

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

I don’t watch this but the theme is beautiful. This is actually a well put together list

14 M*A*S*H

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

Deserves higher

I'm sad that Carly moved away with her dad. But I love the show it rocks

I'm glad she moved away, she doesn't deserve her own web show, it's not funny.

I LOVE ICARLY! GO CREDDIE! I KNOW THE NEW EPISODE WAS IOMG AND SAM KISSED FREDDIE BUT IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. FREDDIE HATES SAM AND LOVES CARLY. Anyways, I LOVE THE THEME SONG! I memorized all the lines because I watched it so much.
