King of the Hill theme is already written/performed by The Refreshments, which are what I kind of call "sub-punk." stuff that would be considered punk in the 1970s because  it's like the Ramones or the Clash, but it's nothing like modern punk.

In short, it really doesn't need to be covered. It's already rock. And if you aren't familiar with The Refreshments, you really should be. "Down Together," "Blue Collar Hero," "Preacher's Daughter," "Birds Sing," and "Wanted" are great starts.

Sure some rock somgs sound good in another rock genre. I know what your saying but it doesnt hurt to hear any song in a differnt version. I liked what I heard.

oh, doesn't hurt. But I guess what I'm saying is that the point of my collection was to combine nostalgia with some good ol' rock.

I know this is not a cartoon, and it has been done by some bands before, but what about the Fraggle Rock theme song

Weezer doing the Animaniacs theme. That'd totally wrok.

One I'd like to see would be a cover of the full Dexter's Lab opening theme. Though I can't pin down who I'd like to do it... That and Samurai Jack.  Samurai Jack was awesome.
My friends held an intervention, to stop my ridiculous plans to take over the world (Jake ended up in the hospital). I convinced them to let me take over other worlds though.

I have a punk cover of Fraggle Rock that's pretty good. Since the original SMGH had stuff like H.R. Puffnstuff and The Bugaloos (pleeeeeeeeease don't tell me if you're too young to know those, i just don't need to be that aware of my mortality) Fraggle Rock would fit right in.

Another one that comes to mind that should have been done is The Great Space Coaster.

And rather than the Animaniacs theme, I think I'd rather hear them do Yakko's World. True, the music wasn't original, but the application of lyrics was exceedingly awesome, and hearing that done with guitars, and maybe the screaming voice of Ozzy Osborne would be mind blowing.

I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I always liked G.I. Joe as a kid.  I'd like to hear it done by Avenged Sevenfold; really rock it up and all that. ;)

I could get behind an AX7 cover of the G.I. Joe theme.  :)

AX7 could do their dueling guitar thing, throw in a nice melodic riff over some heavy chords, and BAM! you got a sweet thing goin' on. ;D
