The X-Files

After giving you a list of some of the best theme songs from the 1980s, we here at TVOvermind thought it was only fitting that we delve into the next decade: the 1990s, which had just as many, if not more, memorable themes from some of the best shows to ever air on TV. Whether they were opening chords to a sci-fi thriller, a teen drama, or a wacky sitcom, here are the 15 most recognizable TV theme songs from the 90s. (And don’t worry: we’ll most likely be doing one for the 2000s soon as well.)
