A TV show doesn't need a huge rock star to have a great theme song. After all, we still have the theme to 'Laverne & Shirley' stuck in our heads and Cyndi Grecco is hardly a household name.

But in some cases, big-time musicians have offered up tunes for televisions series. In fact, the 14 shows below all had famous musicians provide the themes.

See if you can match the title to the correct musical act. Good luck!
