Song of the Day: They Might Be Giants – Dog On Fire

Rich Karfilis Recalls: Bob Mould of Husker Du wrote this instrumental, and it was his version that provided the theme music for the first incarnation of The Daily Show, when it was hosted by Craig Kilborn. When Jon Stewart took over the show, he changed the theme music to this version by They Might Be Giants.

It was a great little tune for a great big show. Even if you didn’t agree with Stewart’s politics, he deserves big-time props for taking comedy to new places. Thanks, Jonny, for all the laughs.
