The following songs were just regular songs until they were turned into TV theme songs. What was once a pleasant song you heard on the radio from time to time turns into the sound of 1,000 nails on a chalkboard.

Which of these existing songs do you think was "most ruined" by its use in a TV show? Which show does its song the biggest disservice?

Definitely my choice, and I feel duty-bound to quote Billy Connolly on this:
"My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger."
