Gotta love how simple and clean V6 is, but when I listen to V3 I feel so... funky. Gotta give it to that one.

The best theme is the unofficial official bombcast theme

but it's actually V3. I really like V3, V5, GOTY V2, GDC, and E3 the most.

V3 beyond any shadow of a doubt.

along with the accompanying podcast art- that thing just SCREAMS late 70s police procedural and i'm all about that.

plus it fills my heart with warm memories of the good king davis.

Yes, perfect. Now I'll have that in my head for the rest of the day.

Oh man I voted for version 5, but the GOTY V2 one just sounds so promising and foreboding.

And I can't find it on Youtube but what about Vinny's remix whenever he hosted the Bombcast? A bit of everything, best of both worlds!

Voted V2 when I meant V3.

I think V3 had some of the best moments in this website's history. Ryan was such a good host

V3 is S-tier. Wouldn't mind them bringing it back if it wasn't so damn nostalgic for that specific time in Giant Bomb history.

V6.

All day, every day.

None of these are on the level of "Lockdown" though, which is the greatest tune to ever grace this site despite not being an official theme.

V3 will never be topped. Hearing the horns fade out and the big man come in with a boisterous "Heeeeeeeeeeeey everyone it's tuuuuuesday!" will never, ever be surmounted.

This poll is missing the best rendition of the Bombcast theme:

Loading Video...

(full segment from the BLLSL here)

Based on the options on the poll, to me it's a tie between V4 and V6 but I also love GOTY-V3 and GOTY-V4. In the end, voted for V6.

Absolutely V3. V1 is a little too disco and V2 is a little too techno.

V3 is all police mustaches and Dodge Coronets. It's glorious.

As a fan of the mellotron, I absolutely love the GOTY V1 version. The mellotron string lead melody is so fucking good. Of the mainline Bombcast themes I'd say V5 is my favorite.

I used to like V2 a lot but boy it sounds pretty dated now. I like the stealth-epic GOTY v2, the jazz GOTYs, and the Nine Inch Nails-like e3 2010 theme about all equally.

@johnymyko: That's pretty cool, hadn't heard it before. Probably not something I'd wanna hear weekly but be great to hear it couple episodes out of the year.

They should use it just once per year on a random episode and never address it, just act like it was the regular intro

Does anyone remember the episode where Vinny guest hosted and mixed a bunch of the themes together for the intro?

I think it was an in-joke after the theme kept changing week by week (as a mistake) but I've always wanted to go back and listen to that episode.

Ah-ha, I found it:

https://www.giantbomb.com/podcasts/giant-bombcast-10-22-2013/1600-649/

So that's maybe another version?

Of the 6 main versions, I think they're all kinda atrocious mixes in the first place or are techno that aged very poorly, except for V3 which is absolutely god tier, and V6 is like a fixed version of V2 and is tolerable.

V3 is the best and also tied for my emotional attachment with V2. Those two were running at the height of giant bomb fanboying for me. Goty V3 is good too.

V6 might be the best but I do miss V3 and wish it could rotate in occasionally.

Who made/makes the theme song anyway?

I'm guessing V5 was phased out naturally? Feel they also don't use it anymore as it felt kinda like Ryan's jam, but I'm also pretty sure they used it a little while after his passing. Love it tho, :plur for days.

Most of the Bombcast tracks have always been great. I voted for V3.

For the record, I really dig:

- Bombcast V1, V3, and V4

- GOTY V1, V3, and V4

@drflapjack: 2013. They got rid of it after Ryan passed. I could be reading too much into things, but I always got the sense that he was the only one who really liked it since even before we lost him, Jeff would go back to V3 every time he ran the episodes.

But it’s V5. V5 is the best one and will always be the best one. Unless we’re counting the Nintendownload Express theme, because that’s the actual best one.
