6. Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Buffy Summers is one of TV’s greatest ever original superheroes (she saved the world. A lot), and she got the catchy theme tune she deserved. The gothic stylings of the opening few seconds before it all goes rock and roll brilliantly encapsulate the show’s sensibilities.
If Buffy is a Spider-Man kind of hero, then Angel is Batman – the brooding type who stands on rooftops overlooking their city. The Angel theme reflects that with a beautiful cello opener before showing Angel’s action hero side as the tune kicks the tempo up a notch.
As hard as the films might try, many X-Men fans still see this seminal nineties animated series as the best incarnation of the team ever. The content of the show is obviously great, too, but the theme is so flipping catchy
