January 19: Big Bang Theory Theme by Barenaked Ladies

Watch The Big Bang Theory Theme here

We all know and love this theme tune so I couldn’t resist using it as our geeky song of the day today.

Canadian band Barenaked Ladies specialise in novelty songs like If I Had a Million Dollars and All Been Done Before, and often include pop culture references such as mentioning The X-Files in the song One Week.
The pilot episode of The Big Bang Theory used Thomas Dolby’s 1980s synth-pop classic She Blinded Me with Science for its intro, but from the first official episode, the Barenaked Ladies’ track was used.
The show’s creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady attended a Barenaked Ladies concert in which singer Ed Robertson did an improve rap about the history of the universe and they approached him to write the theme tune.
This accompanying music video, sees the band invading the set and causing general mayhem, including doing the unthinkable and sitting on Sheldon’s spot on the couch.
Sit back, enjoy and geek out for a couple of minutes.
