Ranking The Wire Theme Songs


The Greatest Show On Television, Ever™ used Tom Waits' "Down In A Hole" as its theme song.  Each season featured a different artist singing the song.

Here's how I rank the five versions of "Down In A Hole" that accompanied the opening credits for each season of The Wire.

5. Season 3, The Neville Brothers

4. Season 4, DoMaJe

3. Season 5, Steve Earle

2. Season 2, Tom Waits
