Hot Video: Big Bang Cast (and Chuck Lorre!) Jam with Barenaked Ladies on Theme Song

Bang!

In a new video touting the Sept. 18 syndicated launch of TV’s most-watched comedy, The Big Bang Theory, the cast of the CBS hit — and even series boss Chuck Lorre, on guitar — jam with Barenaked Ladies as they perform the show’s very, very catchy theme song, right there on the sitcom’s set.

The music video’s premiere comes almost a year after Barenaked Ladies surprised the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con crowd by dropping by the Big Bang Theory panel to perform the ditty, in a live sing-along (seen here). This new, sure-to-be-viral vid also comes on the eve of Barenaked Ladies kicking off a 15-city concert tour, starting Saturday in Chicago, Ill.

Four days after its launch into syndication, The Big Bang Theory bows its new season on CBS, on Thursday, Sept. 22, at 8/7c.

    Why tell everyone about it when the video isn’t available outside the States? I tried to find it on YouTube but no luck so far.

  3. Bec says:

    Is there a way to watch this outside of the US?

  4. Tyler says:

    Nice for it to finally be syndicated in the States. I have been watching it syndicated in Canada for some time now.

    It would be a lot more fun if Steven’s voice wasn’t on the song – it just reminds me of the break-up…

    Hooray for Simon Helberg on keyboards. I knew he could play from Dr. Horrible’s “Commentary: The Musical” – but finally the visual was sweet.

      Steven was great, but Steven had problems and walked away in the end.

      Ed, Tyler, Kevin, & Jim decided to keep going.

      It’s different, but the spirit and energy are still there.

      I had the good fortune of seeing them preform live in Nashville at the Ryman, and they were fantastic. Such a great show that night.

      Wouldn’t hate if Steven came back someday, but I doubt it will ever happen sadly.
