With March Madness in full swing, we decided to do a TV-themed bracket of our own: a no-holds-barred tournament to determine the best TV theme song of all time. After lots of heated debate, we've selected and ranked 32 of the most memorable TV theme songs ever, pitting them against each other in a winner-takes-all bracket. Over the next few weeks, we're asking you to vote for your favorite theme songs until we get a winner -- and a few songs stuck in your heads.
(4) "All in the Family" ("Those Were the Days")
The "All in the Family" theme song "Those Were the Days" is sung by the show's lead actors, Carroll O'Connor (Archie Bunker) and Jean Stapleton (Edith Bunker), singing in character at the piano. The performance is off-key -- Stapleton as Edith shrieks some of her lines -- but undoubtedly endearing. "Family Guy's" opening credits mimicked this sequence in animation form with Peter and Lois Griffin also singing at the piano, lamenting the loss of traditional values.
