Actually the theme is in the opening but you just don't reconize it becuse they added a bunch of *?$# in it..

Do u know what, the theme is good until about 16 seconds. I prefer the old theme.

But im not talkin about the theme tune at the beginning of the credits im talking about implementing it (the old one preferably) in the show, hence the link i posted previously.

I like the new theme. I think it fits the show really well.

although I guess it wouldn't hurt to make it a bit more recognizable.

Are people honestly arguing about this. LEAVE THE MUSIC BACK THAN IN THAN. The music now more than purely suits the new series! Keep it in the future people not the past! Yes the original theme was awesome for its time. This new one KICKS ASS!

They did have the music playing in last nights episode when KITT dropped off Maddey at the Hospital. At least i'm pretty sure that's what i heard.

The last thing a 2000s TV show needs is 80s synth pop music for its theme.

AMEN. Besides, the new KR Theme's an awesome remix. I have it on my Mp3 Player, and I listen to it all the time.

I've never been a particularly big fan of the new theme, but it ain't so bad. Even if it were, I wouldn't want the original theme. The idea behind the new one is good- enough of the old theme to draw a connection and the rest is new stuff, as it should be.

All in all, I'm satisfied with how things are. Though I wouldn't mind the intro theme to pop up in the episode every now and then.

I always hated the synth pop versions of the theme used during the progress of the show. It was nerdy and sounded cheap.

The orchestrated versions were so much better..it felt spectacular.

If you haven't noticed, the new show subtly adds the note changes and tempos in almost every episode. They aren't well recognized, but they are there.

I'm with you here, man. I wish they'd picked a different chord progression for the power chords....but yeah, I agree, new show, new theme. It has enough of the old to satisfy. Although I would like to hear a new theme with a new melody, I can't say I want them using the old melody for the new show.

Actually.....I make music, so maybe I'll give it a shot. See what I can come up with.

And hey.....for those who don't like the new theme because it's not closer to the original, look on the bright side - we could have had another Team Knight Rider. (Although, really, that theme song was awesome in its own right.)

Eh....so I've got my guitar and stuff hooked up to my computer, and since I like the new theme, I want mine to sound pretty much like the beginning of it (since it seems to fit the show really well and I like the way it sounds) but....man. I have a good ear, but I'm going to be searching for these effects for a while. There's an auto-wah on one of the individual tracks, and then there's what sounds like pizzicato somewhere in there....and then there's the rhythmic stuff in the beginning and I'm not sure what that's going through.

So, uh, yeah, if/when I finish this, it's not really going to sound anything like the current version. Bummer.

Ok from what im getting u guys like the new theme. and dont want to here the olf one in the show. Can someone make a vote thing on this site or something? I just wanna know.

I agree, they only play on the the beats and not the melody. Evident in yestersays epiosde when KI3T untows himself from the tow truck.

They therefore realy need to make an updated them on the melody (as u guys don't want the old theme in the show)

The new theme tune is great.
I've got it as my ringtone and would love to hear an extended version.

But I've still got to admit that the original KR and StreetHawk themes were awesome too.

What about this. I really like it. Based on the original. TOS theme u can hear as it is just muted down as the metal version plays over it. (but you can still here it)

THAT is more like what the theme should be, only a bit more of an updated sound that doesn't sound
so....80's for lack of a better word. ALL the original notes should be in it...in the new theme they
loose me about half of a way through, and I suddenly feel like I'm watching a show that should be some
California surf competition show or something..

Aside from the theme itself I think they should put some Knight Rider soundtrack in the background when they're chasing someone, that would have been awesome!

We never get that in the new show, all they have is some heavy metal rock music in the background and that's not Knight Rider!!!

The beats are good accompanied, but sound S**T by itself. (i.e when KI3T is driving away from towtruck)
