Consequence of Sound

Watch a TV show long enough, and the theme song will embed itself so deep into your brain you’ll inevitably catch yourself unwittingly humming some twisted version. (Possibly explains why I coped with forced holiday viewings of Two and A Half Men by scream-singing “Dudely dude dudes”.) YouTube user dotflist takes this phenomenon to its utmost extreme, as he’s recorded alternate, utterly absurd themes for some of TV’s most beloved titles.

Employing musical styles ranging from jangly pop to furious punk, dotflist’s themes — over 70 in all — alternate between direct plot summaries (Girls) to disturbing re-imaginings (The Simpsons). With such sincere delivery and sheer musicianship, the songs just might fool you into thinking these shows genuinely did air on HBO. The whole experience is sort of like watching your favorite shows broadcast from some wacky alternate timeline, but like the actual themes they’re based on, the songs are all unavoidably catchy.
