Welcome back for another installment of Theme Show Tuesday.

— then you may have seen some tweets about how excited I am about FX’s American Horror Story.
After getting swept up in the premiere season last year, I honestly couldn’t wait for it to return for a second season.
One of the things that I like about American Horror Story (AHS) is that each season is contained to one strict storyline with a set group of characters like a miniseries within an anthology. In fact, AHS was nominated in the category as Best Miniseries, instead of under Best Drama. If you want to read more on this, click here.
Last year dealt with a haunted house in present day Los Angeles and this year they’ve turned the attention to an insane asylum in Massachusetts in 1964. Some of the actors (Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Zachary Pinto, etc.) are back to play entirely new characters.
So when season 2 premiered last Wed, needless to say, I was stoked.
You know another thing that I love about American Horror Story?
The badass opening sequence.
That incredible theme song.
That creepy, make your skin crawl, give you goosebumps theme song.
You guys, it’s so very, very, very good.
Here’s last year’s opening credits.
It’s pretty perfect, right? Kyle Cooper of Prologue created the title sequence while sound designer Cesar Davila-Irizarry and musician Charlie Clouser (Nine Inch Nails) composed the hypnotically scary music. Plus, being a typography nerd, I love the font used throughout the sequence. It seems to be some version of the Rennie Macintosh font or Chelsea Studio font.
American Horror Story’s opening theme has to be one of my favorites EVER. To be honest, I have yet to meet one person who doesn’t like this theme song. And, I don’t know what my reaction will be if I ever do meet that person.
Anyway, here’s this season’s opening theme. Enjoy.
