The Friends theme song is something that The Rembrandts (that’s the band who actually performed the ‘90s hit single) have been dining out on for years. Write a song, have it picked up by one of the biggest TV shows of all time to be their opening number, never have to work again- that’s the dream, right?
But it’s not only become a signature tune picked up by the TV shows obsessive fans, but a worldwide pop culture classic that pretty much everyone, from your grandad to the new generations who have only ever seen Ross and Rachel’s on-off relationship in Comedy Central re-runs, knows. It’s no surprise, then, that it has also been noticed by bands and artists as a great way to rack up YouTube hits and Spotify listens if you make a banging cover of it. We’ve scouted the web and found some pretty cool reinventions of the slightly-annoying-but-generally-enjoyable hit so you can check out the song you’ve heard about a thousand times- but now in a different key!
