Favorite Podcast Opening Theme Song

Postby anachron » Jun 17th, 2009 @ 6:21pm

I assume that since you all are at these forums that you listen to the Geekbox and possibly other podcasts. If that's the case, what is your favorite opening theme song to a podcast? This can include any podcasts that aren't around anymore.

I really enjoy the opener to the "What they Play" podcast.

Joystiq's current one is great. Rest of the cast, not so much. I also love Giant Bomb's.

Giant Bomb's is my personal favourite. All others are pretty give-or-take.

Current one is hard to say. Favorite of all time is the late, great, 1up Show.

I love the whole opening of co-op, its pretty awesome :P thought it also includes the video, so i guess im breaking the rules a little.

The song being in Japanese is misleading for a show that has very little to do with Japanese games.


I don't think you actually meant to put this statement and this quote together.

If you are talking about the 1up Show, you are just wrong. But that's ok. People have been wrong about way worse things in history. The Japanese opener was pure awesome, as was the English song.

I like Giant Bomb's the most. I think all the variations of their theme are pretty awesome.

I like Rebel's FM alot, also Mobcast is just pure weird-ness

Giantbomb is also nice, damn even Listen Up! has some nice jazzy-ness.

OK, I can't pick, fuck it, we'll do it live!

Rebel FM's current one is fantastic and I can only assume they want a new one as a way of fully transitioning from the podcast's origins as 1UP FM. Because that's a damn good opener. It should be a full song.

I'd say my own but that'd be too narcissistic. I'd have to nomiate Half Hour Wasted as the best opening theme.

I listen to The D6 Generation for tabeltop gaming, and they have some phenomenal tracks cut into their show. Electronic Gaming wise, I really do love whatever that opening riff is from RebelFM!

Bitmob's opening - thing - just weirds me out.

My favorite might be Idle Thumbs' theme song, which always manages to get stuck in my head.

My least favorite would have to be Destructoid's Retroforce Go!'s theme song, which is like a minute long and full of random noises.

I need to revise my earlier post. My all time favourite podcast opening song would be Indie Spinner Rack. You probably haven't heard of it, but it's a podcast dedicated to the indy comic scene in Michigan. I don't understand most of the references, living in Canada, but i appreciate it nonetheless. And it has an epic opening song.

Are they still using the song "Deceptacon" By Le Tigre like they used to way back?

It's been a while since I've listened to ISR, but I went and checked out their MoCCA wrap up episode since you guys reminded me about it! As far as music specifically created for the opening of a podcast and not just using already existing songs, I've got to admit that the Geekbox theme is my favourite.

The Giant Bombcast has a great opening, and I noticed they have a few different flavours when they're at tradeshows and other events. Does anyone know who wrote it?

I'd say my favorite is the opening to 1up's Good Grief podcast. Sometimes I'll even restart the podcast a couple times just to hear the song, lol.

No one has mentioned the greatest podast theme there is? I speak of course of the Retronauts theme, it is just fantastic. I assume it's original for the show even if not it's still stupidely catchy and has yet to get old despite listening to the show for about 2 years.

I personally love GoNintendo's new theme, the one they have after podcast 200. It basically sounds like a sweet chiptunes band merged with your average alternative rock band. Pretty spiffy, if I do say so myself...
