Here's another one I hated just as much as Dear John: The theme for "That '70s Show", especially the version with Cheap Trick.

Those are just two of my most hated themes EVER!
I rather liked the Dear John theme song..."Dear John. Dear John. By the time you read these lines I'll be gone". I can see why some would hate it. The woman sang it in a pretty high pitch.

I grew tired of the Friends theme song. Especially after the made a music video of it. Now I don't even want to hear it when it comes on the TV.

The Rossanne theme song annoys the heck out of me!
Especially the laugh at the end!

But you are right...I know a lot of friends of mine just raved about Joe Cocker. One friend in paticular kept asking me if I'd ever heard Joe Cocker,and kept pestering me to listen to one of his records... I don't remember which one, but when I did finally hear it, I thought, "what's the big deal about this guy?"...

The Full House theme gets on my nerves. I think my list is Full House, Boy Meets World and the last version of the Happy Days theme. That might be very picky of me but if you listen to it it's awful. I also don't like the Wonder Years theme. I'm a fan of the Beatles version , but then again I just don't like anything Joe Cocker sings so I'm slightly biased.

wow, you are SO right about the last version of the Happy Days theme... I liked Happy Days when it first came on, but only for the first couple of years (basically, while the main guys were still in high school).

But the other morning, my wife was watching a show early in the morning. After her show was over, Happy Days came on, and the TV was still running.. and they played the last version of the theme song...omg, that was horrible! I'd stopped watching Happy Days a long time ago, and never even knew that version existed... that version definitely belongs in the pantheon of bad TV theme song performances... wow, was that ever bad!!

Oh yeah, the Roseanne theme also. It started out all right the first few years but went downhill starting maybe 1994 or so. Especially the last season. I think they actually did lyrics! That just ruined it (but hey, the show itself was ruined by that time).

Yep. It actually did! The lyrics were sung by John Popper.

All In The family - I like the show but hearing Edith sing in that out of pitch tune annoys the crap out of me... I have to change the channel & zoom back in when it finishes just to avoid it!

Roseanne - Ugh... always hated this theme song, no matter what season.Probably because I don't really like country music at all!

One On One - Just a boring theme song.....

I recall turning on the TV at the same time I always had, to see the syndicated "Taxi," while I was still snuggled in bed, just listening, not watching, and could hear that theme song and Judd Hirsch's voice, and thought it was another episode of Taxi, yet couldn't figure out who the other characters were. I dozed off, and this went on for quite a few mornings, until I figured it out. I hadn't recalled that show at all, when it was originally on. But I resented the local channel replacing Taxi with it!

I agree. The Who's The Boss theme was horrible. Friends theme was terrible. What I Like About You theme is almost as awful as the show itself. More often than not the instrumental themes are far better than the ones with words.
