Threesome: Theme songs

November 13, 2008

"We Are The Pipettes" cover

One of my friends tweeted something about how all bands should have theme songs, along the lines of “Hey Hey We’re the Monkees,” which got me thinking. The pure theme songs that came immediately to mind were “We Are The Pipettes,” and both “Freezepop Forever” and “Parlez-Vous Freezepop?” (the existence of both a French and an English theme song for Freezepop warms my Canadian heart).  But surely Hallelujah the Hills’ eponymous fight song should count, and then what about They Might Be Giants?

I’m sure there’s more band songs that I can’t think of offhand. Please feel free to share your favourites in the comments.

  2. Nice, thanks!


  3. In keeping with their cartoonish image, the Aquabats have their own theme song.

    KMFDM references themselves in several songs, but I always thought of “Sucks” as their theme song. Given its frequency of performance, I think they do too.

    Manowar is so metal that they have to have two theme songs. There is “Manowar” which is the history of their foundation and then “Kings of Metal” which I think is really more in line with a true theme song. It begins as such: “Manowar, Manowar living on the road/
    When we’re in town speakers explode/
    We dont attract wimps cause we’re too loud/
    Just true metal people, thats Manowar’s crowd.”

    If that’s not a theme, I don’t know what is.


  4. Heh – that definitely sounds like a theme song to me!


  5. Rhode Island’s Awesome Brothers have their own theme song. You can hear it on their MySpace.
