Sons of Anarchy Theme Song

Gotta love Sons of Anarchy…

Sons of Anarchy has had a lot of cool, notable songs since its conception in 2008. However, the main theme song in question is “This Life,” credited to a group called Curtis Stigers & The Forest Rangers.

Although Curtis Stigers is a known musician, I have no information as to the members and whereabouts of The Forest Rangers. However, there is an article entitled “Velvet Revolver’s Dave Kushner co-writes ‘Sons of Anarchy’ theme song.” Whether or not Dave Kushner is a part of The Forest Rangers, I do not know.

In addition, Curtis Stigers & The Forest Rangers is credited to another Sons of Anarchy-used song called “John the Revelator.” And, two five-song EPs (exclusive to iTunes) have been released: Sons of Anarchy: North Country and Sons of Anarchy: Shelter. I don’t know crap about iTunes so maybe you can just do a search.

Sons of Anarchy theme song lyrics

Riding through this world, all alone
God takes your soul; you’re on your own
The crow flies straight, a perfect line
On the devil’s back until you die

This life is short, baby that’s a fact
Better live it right, you ain’t coming back
Gotta raise some hell before they take you down
Gotta live this life

Gotta look this world in the eye
Gotta live this life ’till you die
You better have soul, nothing less
Cause when it’s business time, it’s life or death

The King is dead, the light goes on
Don’t lose your head when the deal goes down
Better keep your eyes on the road ahead
Gotta live this life

Gotta look this world in the eye
Gotta live this life until you die

Update (January 18, 2011); Belfast theme song update

As this post constantly ranks in the top results for Google, I have to keep the information updated. For those of you (us) who religiously follow SoA, you’d know that in the final episodes of season three, when the story is set in Belfast, Ireland, the show’s producers decided to appropriately match the opening and theme song with a sort of Irish remix. Anyway, below is the Belfast version. The video I got kind of sucks—for some reason it has mirror-image scenes—but it will work for now. See below.

  1. Although these may in fact be the lyrics to the full theme song as published in recordings, it is NOT what we hear at the beginning of every show.

    These are the lyrics at the beginning of each show:

    Riding through this world
    All alone
    God takes your soul
    You’re on your own
    The crow flies straight
    A perfect line
    On the devil’s bed
    Until you die
    Gotta look this life
    In the eye.

  2. From the opening tilll the end and evry thing in between is set off by one of the best songs ever….

  3. Finally I found it! The the place to leave feedback for the one problem with this great show! Yes, the opening them song is great. But so many episodes and scenes have been ruined by the terrible music! The awful performances, terrible selection, and the way it has been mixed in with dialog just ruins watching the show when they mix this in!

    Recently things seem to be better. There are episodes with such horrible songs at the end mixed in with the dialog, that it made it impossible to enjoy the end of these shows.!
    Otto seems to have taken a hint, at least I hope so, as thing have been better recently.
    As long as they don’t keep putting crap songs at the end, I can’t complain too much. Recently the only really bad songs were during the last two chase scenes with Nero crew chasing Jax and tonight scene where they caught the guy who stole Gamma’s Caddy…what was that crap?!?!?
    The song at the end of Opie’s funeral was also unbearable!
    Thank God for mute and closed caption!!!!
    I heard what started like a song when Jax called home to Tara that he was getting out of jail, and I was like “Oh No; Not Again!” but they stopped it for the conversation with Pope. What a relief!
    Since this problem with the show seems to be better lately, all I can do is hope I’m not he only one and at least the end of the episodes won’t be chopped up with crap music mixed in.
    This is the second best show on TV…it would be tied for first if not for this HORRIBLE original music mixed in.
    Bob Thiele Jr and the Forrest Rangers are just terrible!!!! They are the one thing bringing this show down!!!!
    I guess with a contract for the last two seasons in the bag, Otto can force anything he wants down out throats and we’ll watch it cuz the rest of the show is so great. But it’s really an awful cruel thing to do to such a great show with devoted fans.

  4. Please shut up the theme song is actually their real life oath and they happen to be my family and insulting my family ends with pain and suffering.

  5. And stealing is copyrigght infringement so bitch I’m calling the federal government and reporting you

The second one is to those who say they have This Life as a ringtone. Where do you find it? This site has my permission to use my email addy f any comments by REMFS!!!

  7. What a lyrics of this song! I do not know who wrote this and navver heard about him. But love it all the way, if someone can understand! Thanks, BB

  8. I just started watching Son’s of Anarchy on Netflix, and both my wife and I are absolutely addicted to your show. I ride a Harley and your show makes me even more proud to be part of the brotherhood of bikers! Keep up the great work SOA!

  9. jax22 is an ASSHOLE !!!! Many people are catching up, as in just now watching the older seasons, and this moron gives away that Opie gets killed.
