    High energy heavy metal Howard is obviously over, should they replace the Rob Zombie opening theme to reflect how the show has "evolved"?

    Is the reason they haven't changed it yet due to budget or just apathy on the part of the staff?

    At least they replaced that idiotic circus music for HTV

    The only interesting part of that "song" was that Zombie conned Howard into thinking he wrote it for him, and he later found out it was just something Zombie had had lying around and re-purposed it for Howard.

    The old Robin's Theme might as well be the intro now.

    This is more appropriate.

    I remember Howard contemplating changing his opening theme to this...



    ...its a great choice for an opening theme song, especially if its The Ramones cover of this song, but "Great American Nightmare" is Pavlovian to me at this point. It makes me have confidence to go out in the world and kick some ass. It also gives me a weird, unfounded hope that the show might actually not suck on that particular day. :weird:

    I think this would be appropriate

    Pink Floyd's Money would be most appropriate, I think. But ironically it would cost too much money to air it every day.

    Howard has co-writer credit on the song, doesn't he? I'm sure he receives some amount of money for playing the song, so it will never go away. Unless Howard decides to write a new song all by himself.

    That AGT song is harrable! No one gives a fuck on that show anymore and I look forward to AGT getting crushed by it's competitors.

    I'm sick and tired of every other 3 shows has intro bits followed by Bon Jov's Blaze of Glory! Damnit Fred put some energy into your job you old fool.

    Enough AGT calls too, fuck I'm fired up this morning.

    So this is what it's like being on "the other side" after having given up on the show. Man, the air is clear over here! Try it, BudBudha. I don't have to wait through that ponderous first 1-2 hours of AGT talk any more. I'm freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    This is the gayest I could come up with without going for the obvious Village People reference....
