Now that the Fall television season is in full swing, we figured we’d celebrate some of our favorite songs featured on TV. Yes, we realize our headline is misleading (MTV barely plays any music) but there are plenty of great songs to be found across the boob tube (stop laughing, Metal!) and here are some amazing examples!!!
Metal’s Pick: “Game of Thrones Theme” by Ramin Djawadi (from “Game of Thrones”)
So what if this song isn’t metal? The “Game of Thrones Theme” still gets me juiced up for some dragons and swords and everything else that kicks ass in “Thrones.” Fun fact: Ramin Djawdi also composed the score for “Iron Man.” That dude definitely knows how to rage!
Country’s Pick: “Trouble Is” by Hayden Panettiere (from “Nashville”)
Who knew Hayden Panettiere could sing? Actually, who knew Hayden Panettiere could act? Well, she’s doing both amazingly well as Juliette Barnes on one of my favorite shows of all time, “Nashville.” Keep up the good work, Hayden!
Hip Hop’s Pick: “Big Bang Theory Theme” by Barenaked Ladies (from “The Big Bang Theory”)
The perfect theme for the perfect show! Kudos to the Barenaked Ladies who managed to create a song that’s both catchy and educational.
Indie’s Pick: “You’ve Got Time” by Regina Spektor (from “Orange Is The New Black”)
Television is way too mainstream so I went with a song from a show on Netflix because I’m the boss and I’m allowed to do whatever I want. Plus it hard not to support Regina Spektor. I’ve been a fan since before 11:11. Also, lady prison dramedies are pretty neat.
Scene’s Pick: “Adventure Time Theme” by Pendleton Ward (from “Adventure Time”)
I’m so so excited 2 finally share my luv 4 “Adventure Time”!!!! Sing it with me … “Adventure time, c’mon grab your friends! We’ll go 2 very distant lands! With Jake the Dog and Finn the Human the fun will never end! It’s adventure time!!!!!!!”
