Composer: Joss Whedon
Artist: Sonny Rhodes
Did you know Whedon wrote the theme song? If not, now you do. DeathByTroggles: The More You Know.
At first the theme song seems inappropriate for a sci-fi show as “The Ballad of Serenity” is country-western. But then you watch the show, and yup, it fits right in.
7. Big Bang Theory
Composer: Barenaked Ladies
Artist: Barenaked Ladies
There’s a pretty regular joke that this show has been #1 for years and nobody knows anybody who admits to watching it. Well, I’ve seen quite a bit of it (in syndication, while doing other stuff). It’s pretty terrible. The first few episodes showed some promise, but it quickly devolved into the same bad jokes and catchphrases week in and week out.
What is still awesome if the theme song. And here’s an example of the extended version being even awesomer. I’m a huge Barenaked Ladies fan, and this song is very professionally done.
