Default If you were to select a theme song for your current campaign, what would it be?

I'm running Out of the Abyss, and I think I'd choose "Hell's Bells" by AC/DC.

For the Space Operators' Problems (set in Æthereal Sun), it is of course Space Operators by Dynatron.

For the Destination Not Found (set in Eclipse Phase), it is a trimmed version of The Fall by Mind in a Box.

I always have some sort of theme in mind at the beginning...

...but by the third session, it's almost always devolved back to "Yakety Sax".

For Infinite Cabal, I'll nominate Beethoven's fifth symphony. There was no theme music considered at the start, but this is the best-known piece in a concert that was important in the campaign.

I sort-of do this already - with the online group Whartson Hall, since we publish our recordings, I pick a (royalty-free) theme for each game. But that's usually just a matter of setting a general mood.

For Hurricane Season (Monster Hunters in Weird Florida), whlie I'm not recording it, I ended up doing the same thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yy-NyPTRYU8

For Shadowguard, it would probably have been David Bowie's "Heroes". (Or any of the many numerous covers, though Motorhead's sticks in my head most.)

I'm starting a Star Wars prequel remake game soon, so of course there's only one possible theme for it, even though the plot will be totally different!

Leslie Fish's Amateur Rebels? :) (Yes, I know it was intended for a different series.) Can't find a performance online, but here are the lyrics:

Beat me to it.

It's not the intention of my players, nor the intention of me as the DM, but my Al-Qadim campaign would have Yakety Sax as a recurring theme for certain episodes. Probably not the whole campaign, but certain episodes for sure.
