Back in 2007 I decided to check out an HBO show entitled John From Cincinnati. It wasn't bad, and I ended up watching all ten episodes, but looking back I think it was the theme song that kept drawing me back.
I just adored their use of "Johnny Appleseed" by Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros. It set the tone perfectly and I'm sure fooled me into thinking the show was better than it actually was. An amazing opening theme can do that.
I don't remember much from John From Cincinnati... I think he was supposed to be Jesus or something like that... but I'll never forget that tune from Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros.
