View Full Version : Best sports theme music (audio included)

Theme music is a cool part of watching sports, at least for me. I always get pumped up when I hear the CBS music. I also really like the NBA Finals music. So anyways, I was listening to Sirius today; Adam Schein and Rich Gannon were coming off a commercial and they were playing the NBA theme music and the CBS theme music. Schein commented on how much he likes the NBA on NBC music and I started thinking about who has the best sports theme music?

Give these a listen and let us know which ones you like. If there's one you like that I don't have, just post it up.

The links all go their respective songs on TelevisionTunes.com (http://www.televisiontunes.com/index.php) , one of my favorite websites. You can listen to any show's music on there.

The NFL on CBS from the 90's has always been one of my favorites. I liked the ABC's wild world of sports theme music too.

Monday night football has always been my favorite. I've had it as my ringtone for years.

I don't know if this fits the forum question, but the best sports song I think is : Center-field (think that's the name), Fogarty?

"Put me in coach"

The CBS college football theme with the hammering drums makes me want to bang my head when I hear it.

I always set the CBS music as my ringtone once the season starts. Atleast if my phone rings during a game I'll be reminded not to answer it cuz the Steelers are on. LOL

I always liked this one quite a bit:


CBS frequently use it in both their NFL and golf coverage.

I'm sorry but the NBA finals on NBC song is really gay and stupid.

What did I just listen to?

NFL on CBS is the best by far

I like the NBA finals music, it just seems to fit basketball. I like how the networks different types of orchestra music and keyboards on most sports intros.
