24 Theme Song

Just finished watching season 7, so I thought I’d post (and learn) something about the theme song. As you might have already noticed, most (if not all) of 24’s music are electronically created. The show’s opening theme – the one after that accelerating digital countdown, is the most noticeable, albeit familiar “song” to the entire series. Research tells me that this song is aptly entitled the “24 Theme.” It is said to have been composed by producer, Sean Callery.

For lack of information about the show’s main theme, I’ll add that to date, there have been 5 official soundtracks released namely:

  1. 24: The Soundtrack
  2. 24: Seasons Four and Five Soundtrack
  3. 24: Redemption
  4. 24: The Game Original Game Score
  5. 24: The Longest Day/Remix Bundle (by Armin Van Buuren)


Apple (via iTunes) also offered 3 exclusive remixes on the 24 theme song during season 6. They were remixed by The Crystal Method, Benny Benassi and Towa Tei.
