Hawaii Five-No!

The greatest television theme song and opening credits sequence has been ruined–ruined!–with the following remake, to match the new version of the show:

Compare that processed, digitized, lump o' donkey dung to the awesome, kick-ass perfection of the original:

Book 'em, Danno, for murdering the most totally awesome TV music ever.

It's fucking Hawaii Five-0, goddamnit!  The theme song has to kick ass! The new tune makes it sound like CSI: Honolulu.

Now excuse me while I watch another part of my childhood crawl off to die.

  • I definitely prefer the original music, but the video in the new one isn't bad. 

  • It could be much worse. The new version of the theme sounds like Muzak, but I have a feeling you won't have to worry for long. This show has cancellation written all over it. They really need to stop remaking old classics. Look at what they did to the Bionic Woman. <shudder>

    You're back!!!

    I can't believe they're redoing it…but then again, they're redoing EVERYTHING.  To death.  Which makes young screenwriters like me super happy because who wants original content when you can just recycle something and make a shittier, Wal-Mart version of it??!?!!?

    Sigh.

  • Yikes. They Muzaked it!
    But at least the new one has Daniel Dae Kim.
    Liked your comment on the Literary Lab blog. I'm another "writer of a certain age" who dies a little every time this fraidy-cat culture cannibalizes our youth instead of coming up with new stuff.  

  • Completely pales in comparison.
