Dragnet 1951

Taking the successful radio program to the new medium of television, Dragnet was famous for its use of actual Los Angeles Police Department case files. Jack Webb portrays Sgt. Joe Friday, who works the day shift with his partners on a variety of interesting cases. This program was reincarnated in 1967; eight years after its first television series had ended, with Jack Webb reprising his role of Sgt. Joe Friday.

    @buzzkillmetalmusic – I also had the same idea! its similar

  6. buzzkillmetalmusic says:

    @Poisuna perhaps Dragnet was aired in Swedish at one point and Johann or one of the other guys must have heard the theme and played it on guitar or something. i guess it really is a small world after all lol.

    @buzzkillmetalmusic Amon Amarth just played in my city last Tuesday, they closed with “In Pursuit of Vikings”…I’d obviously heard the song before but it was only then when I realized the similarity to Dragnet’s theme. What the heck, eh?

    the thing that’s funny is the song “In Pursuit of Vikings” by the metal band Amon Amarth sounds like the theme to Dragnet. you guys might want to check that song out.

    Probably the most ominous theme of all TV shows ever. And easily one of the most recognizable. Often played for lulz in later TV shows such as Married With Children.

    I always thought this song belonged to a Sherlock Holmes movie/show.
